The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was purchased by a ton of series fans. However, the game’s success can also be attributed to entirely new players.

The Wall Street Journal writer Takashi Mochizuki passed along a comment made by Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima. In a brief statement, he said that entirely new players who hadn’t experienced Zelda before gave Breath of the Wild a shot after hearing about its strong reception.


In a recent interview with Gamespot,  Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada commented on the possibility of Tekken 7 arriving on the Nintendo Switch. When asked about what the future would hold for Tekken 7 fans on the Switch, Harada had this to say:

“Officially, we can’t really comment on that because our company has strict policy about which titles we talk about for Switch. But personally, we’ve been so busy with trying to master up Tekken for the current platforms that we haven’t really had enough time to study the hardware. We couldn’t even buy it–it was sold out every time we went to look for it.”

Unfortunately, it seems like the possibility of Tekken 7 coming to the Switch is far in the future, at best. You can read the full interview here.

Aside from the new Battle Mode, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is similar to the original game on Wii U in many ways. However, Nintendo did implement some subtler changes that you may not have been aware about – including new Time Trials, additional tournament icons, and more. GameXplain takes a look at these and more changes below.

The Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki is sharing a new comment made by Tatsumi Kimishima. During the company’s financial results briefing today, Nintendo’s president said that “more unannounced titles” are planned that should boost Switch hardware sales.

E3 2017, which is less than two months away, is where Nintendo should be making new announcements for Switch. We should also be hearing about previously-announced games such as Super Mario Odyssey.


EDGE has a big feature on ARMS this month. Switch’s upcoming game is on the cover of the magazine, and also has several pages of coverage.

Producer Kosuke Yabuki, art director Masaaki Ishikawa, and design director Shintaro Jikumaru shared some comments about ARMS as well. Between the three, they talked a bit about the game’s origins, making it balanced (including a special tool used), trying to have it be accessible yet also deep, and other topics as well. 

We’ve posted a number of comments from Yabuki, Ishikawa, and Jikumaru below. You can pick up this month’s EDGE for the full feature. 


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild recently graced the cover of EDGE magazine, and another first-party Nintendo game will soon follow in its tracks. ARMS will be on the cover of EDGE magazine issue #306 with the caption “Nintendo’s stunning new fighting game lands the killer blow for Switch”. Sounds like the magazine’s editors have pretty high hopes for the game. If you’re a subscriber, by the way, you will instead get this exclusive cover art of Spring Man getting punched in the face:
