My demo with Thirsty Suitors had me battling an ex-boyfriend by slinging insults, racking up combos at an abandoned skatepark, and cooking food to win my parents’ approval. Credit where credit is due: I don’t think any other game has tried to do those three specific things at once! It feels like exactly the type of game you’d expect to see Annapurna publishing these days – a little surreal, very experimental, and handcrafted to surprise you at almost every turn. While I’m a little unsure about how Thirsty Suitors will manage to tie all its ideas together into a cohesive package, I’ve enjoyed the rollercoaster ride that I’ve experienced so far.

Cocoon preview

Cocoon is enrapturing. A few minutes into my demo, I had already managed to completely block out the noise of the bustling Summer Game Fest crowds around me – no small feat – and found myself completely absorbed in the mysterious desert landscapes of the alien planet I was exploring. While ostensibly a game about solving puzzles, playing Cocoon felt less like working out solutions to brainteasers, and more like trying to interpret and learn the rules of the world around me. Or, worlds, to be more precise. While its developer, Geometric Interactive, isn’t revealing too many of the game’s secrets just yet, I’m captivated by what I’ve played so far, and can’t wait to untangle the web of its interconnected pieces.

Sifu Switch update Arenas

Original (6/6): Sloclap has revealed exclusively to Nintendo Everything that the Switch version of Sifu is getting a major update next week.

The Arenas Expansion initially came to other platforms back in March. This content, along with title update 3 content (minus the Replay Editor due to hardware limitations), will be made available for Switch on June 15, 2023.

There may not have been an E3 this summer, but it sure as heck felt like it! Between Summer Games Fest, the Xbox and PlayStation showcases, the Wholesome Direct, Future Games Show, and even more presentations than we can list here, there have been hundreds of games announced or shown off in the past few weeks. Fortunately, we were able to visit LA last week to get hand-on with a wide range of exciting Switch-bound games, including Sonic Superstars, Oxenfree II, Mortal Kombat 1 and much, much more! In this week’s episode of Nintendo Everything Refresh, join your hosts Nick Serpa and Tom Chaplin as they talk about all the games big and small that Nick got to demo at Summer Games Fest. Then, stick around for some other freshly announced Indies you should keep on your radar, several irrelevant tangential conversations (our favorite), and more!

Mortal Kombat 1 is perhaps the most jaw-dropping fighting game I’ve ever had the privilege of playing. And not just in a figurative sense, because there’s literally an X-Ray attack in which Sub-Zero skewers his opponent’s brain through their mouth with a shard of ice, rendered in a shocking amount of detail. Between the new Kameo mechanic, an increased focus on aerial play, and some of the most stunning visuals I’ve ever seen in a fighting game, this is a game that feels next-gen from edge to edge. That’s a polite way of saying: I have no idea how they are going to get this running on Switch.

Oxenfree II preview Summer Game Fest

It’s easy to forget, looking back, just how innovative Oxenfree felt when it launched in 2016. Plenty of games up to that point had experimented with branching narratives and dialogue, but few had managed to weave conversations together in such an organic, convincing way. What started as a slow-burn teen drama quickly evolved into a tense supernatural thriller, and the choices the player makes for protagonist Alex could have a dramatic impact on the ending of the game. After getting hands-on with Oxenfree II: Lost Signals at Summer Game Fest, I’m confident that Night School Studio knows exactly what the fans are looking for from this sequel, and I can’t wait to play more of it.

Eventide Island was one of the best moments in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In this video, Sam dives into what made it such a memorable location, how it represents the philosophy of the game, and how it’s changed to fit Tears of the Kingdom’s new design.

Check out the full video from us below.

Oxenfree II developer interview

Oxenfree II, the long-awaited sequel to Night School Studio’s moody supernatural mystery, is right around the corner. After playing through the first 30 minutes of the game at Sumer Game Fest Play Days, we had the opportunity to speak with studio director Sean Krankel about the game’s development, storytelling mechanics, and more.
