We’re just a little bit late, but here is our Halloween video! I’m a big fan of scary moments in Nintendo titles – those strange and dark instances in a game that is otherwise colorful and full of happiness. But recently, I get the feeling that things have changed as those moments are less present or sometimes very well hidden. Even so, they are still there.

In this video I highlight some of those more recent spooky moments in Nintendo games, commenting on how they’ve changed and the different approaches in various franchises. Featured titles range include Mario, Xenoblade, and more. For the full video, continue down below.

Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda is almost here, and Nintendo has shared a number of different gameplay clips for the product. We’re able to see the different titles included as well as the timer functionality.

For those that missed out on the original announcement, Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda includes The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. These games can be played in English or Japanese. The Game & Watch classic, Vermin, is also included. And finally, you’ll be getting a digital clock and timer, and you can interact with both.

Here’s a look at the gameplay for Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda:

LEGO Super Mario Luigi's Mansion

In celebration of Halloween, it’s been announced that the LEGO Super Mario line is expanding once again, this time with sets based on Luigi’s Mansion.

King Boo, Polterpup, Bogmire, Toad, Boo and other characters from the Luigi’s Mansion series will be featured. Players can use a LEGO Luigi (or LEGO Mario) figure from a Starter Course in new challenges. The sets themselves have new immersive sounds and music.

When you think of Fatal Frame, one of the first things that comes to mind is the Camera Obscura. However, when the series originally began, the development team actually considered a few other objects instead.

Nintendo Everything recently spoke with Keisuke Kikuchi, the producer of the Fatal Frame. There was some talk about the new release of Maiden of Black Water on Switch, but also discussion about the franchise and general. And when asked if there were other objects that were initially thought about before settling on the camera, he said:

goldeneye 007 ban

More than two decades after its original release on N64, GoldenEye 007 is no longer “banned” in Germany.

As explained by Mental Floss, the German federal agency Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) set up an index in the 1980s in which a piece of media could be included if it were deemed harmful to young people. GoldenEye was one such title that was added – way back in 1998 – due to its death scenes and perceived glorification of violence. Being included on the list can significant hinder sales.

According to a Kotaku report, Nintendo has closed its California office. In doing so, about 100 employees have been displaced.

Nintendo of America has its headquarters in Redmond, Washington, but has had a couple of other offices – including the now closed location in California. As a result of the move, SVP of sales and marketing Nick Chavez has resigned and has now joined Kentucky Friend Chicken as the company’s new chief marketing officer. Chavez took over the SVP role after Doug Bowser was promoted to president of Nintendo of America following Reggie Fils Aime’s resignation in 2019.

Shoji Meguro Atlus

Shoji Meguro has left Atlus and is now an independent composer, the company has announced. The move officially went into effect as of the end of September.

Despite leaving the studio, it looks like Atlus still hopes to work with Meguro in the future. Specifics about any future collaborations have not been provided.

N64 games have finally arrived on Switch as part of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service, but the launch could have gone a bit better to say the least. Users have been coming forward with a slew of issues and complaints since last night’s debut.

A good amount of the discussion concerns Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Some aren’t pleased with how fog, draw distances, and water textures are on Switch. There are also reports of slowdown and input lag, though how extensive this is has been debated.
