PageBoy

A new Nintendo discovery has been made thanks to Liam Robertson from DidYouKnowGaming?, with the Game Boy Color add-on PageBoy having come to light more than two decades after it was scrapped.

The origins actually go back to another cancelled peripheral known as the WorkBoy, which came from English studio Source Research and Development. This would have been a productivity add-on, but it also never came to be. Its inventor, Eddie Gil, then gave things another shot with the PageBoy.

A-Train All Aboard! Tourism update

Artdink has announced a new update for A-Train: All Aboard! Tourism, its sim title for Switch. It will come with a few different features and more.

Not everyone has the same experience with a game – many elements ring different for each person and the interactive nature of that media makes everything more personal. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a great game, but inside such a highly regarded series sometimes being great is not enough, and that’s why some fans were disappointed with the game.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot + A New Power Awakens Set made it to Switch a few months ago, but it was missing a notable feature in the form of Card Warriors. This had previously landed on other platforms in 2020 and was intended to be made available on Nintendo’s console as part of a free update this fall. Unfortunately, that’s no longer happening.

Bandai Namco confirmed not too long ago that Card Warriors has been delayed on Switch “due to an adjustment of the development schedule.” A new release window was not provided.
