November 30 (2022): Nintendo Switch Online previously offered users icons for Splatoon 3, but the game is now a featured title once again. There’ll be five sets that rotate weekly on every Wednesday until January 9, 2023.

As usual, there are characters, backgrounds, and frames to choose from. Each one costs 5 or 10 Platinum Points as earned through My Nintendo. Once you’ve claimed an icon, it’s yours to claim forever – even if your subscription to Nintendo Switch Online expires.

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine has revealed that Compile Heart plans to port three games in the Hyperdimension Neptunia series over to Switch.

The three games in question will be Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2: Sisters Generation, and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 3: V Generation. All of these titles were originally PlayStation Vita remasters of the first three Hyperdimension Neptunia games, now making their appearance on Nintendo systems for the first time.

EarthBound Beginnings icons Switch Online

February 21: EarthBound Beginnings is now a featured game on Nintendo Switch Online with a new round of icons. This may come as a surprise

EarthBound Beginnings was originally added to Nintendo Switch Online a year ago. However, Nintendo may have decided to start up some icons given that Mother 3 was made available on the service in Japan earlier today.

7 Star Venusaur Guide Pokemon Scarlet Violet

One announcement from the recent Pokemon Presents was new 7 Star Tera Raid Battles for Scarlet and Violet. One such event is 7 Star Venusaur, which is currently live.

Venusaur is a tough one – certainly one of the toughest yet. Even with adequate preparation, it took us a few tries to take it down. At the beginning of the match, Venusaur uses Sunny Day to activate its Chlorophyll Ability, and then it uses Growth to sharply boost its offenses. From there, it knows Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb, and Earth Power as its attacking moves, plus Amnesia to boost Special Defense. The event lasts until March 5.

Ufouria: The Saga 2

System: Switch
Release date: March 1, 2024
Developer: Sunsoft
Publisher: Red Art Games

Back in 1991, video game developer Sunsoft – perhaps best-known these days for its Blaster Master series – was trying to get a new franchise off the ground, in part to help cement a new mascot for the company. Ufouria: The Saga was the result – a quirky 2D platformer whose main gimmick was its ability for players to swap between four different characters. While the game did well enough to spawn a series of puzzle games featuring the same oddball cast and charming presentation, the original title been almost entirely unavailable for western players outside of a now-inaccessible Virtual Console rerelease and a limited run in Europe. That’s why it’s such a delightful surprise that now, over thirty years later, Sunsoft has released a sequel – and fortunately, an excellent one. Ufouria: The Saga 2 not only tightly modernizes the satisfying gameplay of the original, but imbues its world and characters with a sense of whimsy and humor that had me smiling from start to finish.
