Japanese retailer lists arcade stick for Switch with Pokken Tournament reference, then pulls it
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 16 Comments
Rumors about the possibility of Pokken Tournament on Switch have begun due to a Japanese retailer listing. Sinobi listed a new arcade stick for the console, which mentioned that it can be used in fighting games such as Pokken. It has since been removed.
It goes without saying that this should not be treated of any sort of confirmation that Pokken Tournament is coming to Switch. That being said, the news is very interesting and gives some hope about a potential port or new Pokken title on the system.

Splatoon 2: another new singleplayer stage element revealed
Posted on 2 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 2 Comments
The Splatoon Twitter account has revealed another new stage element that can be found in the game’s Hero Mode. In the Japanese version, it’s called “cologalium” – what looks like five tubes stuck together. Like most things in Splatoon, if you ink them, you can use them to your advantage. In this case, inking them propels them forward, and they also leave behind a path of your ink. Depending on where you hit the tubes, you can control the trajectory at which they travel, allowing you to hit enemies that are high up. Some of the Octarians are also capable of producing cologalium and can use it to attack – but of course, you can just shoot it right back at them.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Pair of original characters revealed; Marth is also playable
Posted on 2 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in New Nintendo 3DS, News, Switch | 89 Comments
Surprisingly enough, our first proper look at Fire Emblem Warriors (after that brief trailer featuring Chrom a couple of months ago) comes not from E3, but instead from Famitsu. We only have preview images of the article in this week’s Famitsu magazine about Fire Emblem Warriors at the moment, but we can nonetheless learn a couple of things from them.
It seems like the game’s main characters, much like Fire Emblem Heroes, will be a brother and sister pair – original characters Shion and Lian. It also comes as no surprise that Marth will be playable as well.
We will have more information once we get our hands on the full issue of Famitsu tomorrow.
