Let’s Talk

Another classic game has received the battle royale treatment. Pac-Man 99 was only just announced this week, but a day after it’s reveal, the title was released for Switch. Nintendo Switch Online members can try out the title at no extra cost.

Like Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. 35, Pac-Man 99 puts a twist on the classic arcade formula that we’ve come to love. Players are tasked with being the last one standing as they gather Power Pellets, eat ghosts, and send Jammer Pac-Mans to make things more difficult for their opponents. We have all of the relevant details here.

With Pac-Man 99 having been out there for a few days, what are your impressions thus far? How do you feel it stacks up to the other Switch Online offerings? Let us know in the comments below.

Outside of the upcoming Switch game, she spoke about how she became involved with voice acting, shared advice for those aspiring to get involved in the same field, spoke about her love for Nintendo, and more.

Nintendo decided to drop some fairly big news on a random Monday evening this past week. It was announced that in collaboration with Pokemon GO developer Niantic, a new app is in development featuring Pikmin. Not much is known at present, but Nintendo said that the project will offer “gameplay activities designed to encourage walking and make the activity more enjoyable.” It’s also confirmed for a 2021 release.

Based on Nintendo’s announcement, it sounds like Pikmin could be just the start of future projects with Niantic. The press release mentioned “apps” (meaning more than one) and “Nintendo’s beloved characters”. You can catch up on the full announcement here if you missed it.

Let’s assume that Nintendo and Niantic are indeed collaborating beyond Pikmin. What other franchises from the Big N would you like to see Niantic tackle? Let us know in the comments below.

MAR10 Day took place earlier this week, so now’s as good a time as ever to discuss the simple topic of favorite Mario games. Super Mario has been around for 35 years now, and aside from the core platforming titles, the IP has expanded in so many different ways. The franchise has been a part of racing, sports, mini-game partying, RPGs, and more.

With that in mind, what’s your personal favorite Mario game (or games)? Do you have any particular memories you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments below.

Pokemon celebrated its 25th anniversary with a special presentation yesterday. Pokemon Presents featured three main titles, all of which are exclusively for Switch: New Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Finally, Game Freak showed off what it’s working on with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which is more of an open-world action RPG approach to the series. We’ve got a recap of everything shown here.

When you think about gaming franchises, Nintendo has some of the most recognizable IPs around. Mario is right at the top, but there’s also Pokemon, Zelda, Kirby, Donkey Kong, Splatoon, and many more. There’s even Animal Crossing, which was already fairly popular in the past, but has really taken off with New Horizons on Switch.

Despite how many series Nintendo has at its disposal, not everything is around today. There have some IPs that haven’t been touched in years, or even decades.

With that in mind, we want to hear from you. Is there a dormant Nintendo franchise you’d like to see make a comeback? Let us know in the comments below – your response may be featured in a future Nintendo Everything video!
