Tribes of Midgard review

System: Switch
Release Date: August 16, 2022
Developer: Norsfell
Publisher: Gearbox Publishing

At a little over a year from its initial launch, Tribes of Midgard made its way to Switch recently with more bells and whistles to show for it. Originally, the game boasted only its session-based Saga mode with ten players taking on a series of tasks to survive together and make it through a scenario, with an offline mode touting the same objectives. With Season 3: Inferno Saga, updates were made to both Saga and the newer Survival mode. We’ll be diving into both modes and taking a look at what they look like on Switch.

To learn more about the making of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, we caught up with Konami senior producer Charles Murakami and Digital Eclipse editorial director Chris Kohler. You can read our full discussion below.

SD Gundam Battle Alliance review

System: Switch
Release Date: August 25, 2022
Developer: Artdink
Publisher: Bandai Namco

The SD (Super Deformed) Gundam spinoff franchise has never achieved the same renown as its parent franchise outside of Japan – where at one point it actually eclipsed the popularity of the main franchise in terms of sales for a brief time – but has nonetheless managed to establish itself as a presence in its own right over the years, and has spawned several video games. SD Gundam Battle Alliance marks the third SD Gundam title to release on the Switch, but the first to release on the console in the west. Was it worth the wait?

A new month started up a couple of days ago. Now that we’re in September, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Are you digging into some of the recent Switch releases like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection or Pac-Man World Re-Pac? Still exploring the world of Xenoblade Chronicles 3? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac review

System: Switch
Release Date: August 26, 2022
Developer: Bandai Namco / NOW Production
Publisher: Bandai Namco

It’s not a stretch to say that almost everyone who plays video games is at least aware of Pac-Man; the puck-shaped pellet muncher is perhaps one of the most iconic gaming protagonists of all time. So, while it shouldn’t be a surprise that of course he featured in his own series of 3D platformers in the late 90’s and early 2000s – those games were a dime a dozen back then – it was a bit of a left-field announcement when Bandai Namco revealed that the original Pac-Man World would be getting a remake. It’s a solid 3D adventure that has its fans, sure, but it didn’t leave a substantial impact on the genre in the same way that Mario, Crash and Spyro did. Sometimes, though, a game doesn’t need to innovate to be a good time, and Pac-Man World Re-Pac is a perfect example of how tight, responsive platforming and a dollop of arcade-fueled nostalgia can be a timeless, satisfying combination.

Most of the time, a trailer is a sneak peek of an audiovisual work – a way in which companies can show us some nice bits from a game or a movie to convince us that they deserve our money. As soon as we get our hands on the final product, we usually don’t go back to trailers considering that they are just a small part of the whole.

However, there are moments in which a trailer can actually be remembered – when it is so well-made that people frequently go back to rewatch it! In the video below you can see my “analysis” while rewatching the Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer from the Nintendo Switch Presentation in 2017. Feel free to share your own thoughts about the video in the comments.

Splatoon 3 is the next big Switch game from Nintendo and is just a couple of weeks away. Most have likely made a decision as to whether they’ll be picking it up in September. However, there is also the Splatfest demo happening right now that gives players a bit of a preview of what they can expect from the final game.

Some have argued that Splatoon 3 doesn’t feel new enough, but many fans are very happy with how it’s been looking. What side of the fence do you sit on? Are you planning on buying Splatoon 3 next month? Let us know in the comments.

Everyone seems to be talking about the metaverse these days (for better or for worse), which is funny because there’s no unanimous consensus as to what it even is! Is it the future of gaming, the future of work, the future of buzzwords… or maybe, just maybe, the future of Mario? What could Nintendo’s presence in the metaverse look like – or should they even bother? Join your hosts Nick, Nicolas and Luiz as they (attempt to) answer these non-fungible questions. They’ll also discuss the legacy of Wave Race 64 (which was just added to Switch Online’s Expansion Pack), a mysterious Nintendo adaptive controller, new claims of workplace misconduct at Nintendo of America, and more.
