Samus Aran Metroid Fortnite

Samus Aran and the Metroid series could have been represented in Fortnite, and while Nintendo and Epic discussed the idea, that ultimately didn’t come to be.

That news comes from Donald Mustard, the former chief creative officer of Epic Games. Mustard chatted about his time working on Fortnite with Game File, including discussions that were held with Nintendo.

Fortnite has seen a ton of different collaborations over the years, but Nintendo isn’t represented at all with any of its characters or franchises. However, Epic Games is very much interested in making something happen on that front at some point in the future.

Epic’s head of Fortnite’s ecosystem, Saxs Persson, recently said the following when asked by Axios how hard the company has tried working with Nintendo: “I don’t know what the word for, like, making diamonds is.”

Alan Wake Remastered Switch vs Xbox One comparison

A graphics comparison video has come in for the new Switch version of Alan Wake Remastered, showing how the game stacks up to its Xbox One counterpart.

There are all sorts of changes that are apparent here, but the easiest aspects to discuss concerns frame rate and resolution. On Switch, a big talking point over the past week has revolved around drops in FPS. Alan Wake Remastered isn’t perfectly stable on Xbox One either, but Nintendo’s console seems to have some consistent dips that brings the action down to 20 FPS. It remains to be seen whether a patch will be offered in the future to improve performance.
