falcom nintendo switch

Switch is really the first time that Falcom games have had a major presence on a Nintendo platform. Over the past few years, the Ys and Legend of Heroes series have found a new home on the console.

While Falcom largely missed out on previously Nintendo systems, president Toshihiro Kondo says that it’s not due to a poor relationship. He reiterated with in an interview with Denfaminicogamer that it all comes down to the amount of available resources. That’s why the company has partnered with Nippon Ichi Software and Clouded Leopard Entertainment to assist with ports.

It’s crazy to think about, but after nearly two decades, we’ve finally seen a brand new, original 2D Metroid. After skipping several of its other systems, Nintendo finally felt the time was right to create Metroid Dread for Switch.

It’s been about a week since Metroid Dread came out. Given that it’s not a massively long experience, we imagine that many of you have already completed the game or are at least pretty far along.

For those that have been playing through Metroid Dread, what are your thoughts on the game? Did it live up to your expectations? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Metroid Dread review

Note: we’ve updated this post with a video version of our Metroid Dread review – check it out below.


System: Switch
Release date: October 8, 2021
Developer: MercurySteam / Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo


Metroid Dread still feels a little surreal. The shock of a new, original 2D Metroid was palpable when Dread was announced, but the more one thinks about it, the more amazing it seems. It’s the realization of a 15 year old concept that has gone through multiple cycles of early development and dormancy. It’s the first original 2D Metroid in almost two decades, a span of time in which an entire genre named after the series has sprung up and seen thousands of games following in its footsteps. It’s a game that has expectations to live up to that seem almost unfair but somehow manages to exceed them. Metroid Dread is real, and it’s a masterpiece.

Animal Crossing New Horizons Direct live stream

Today’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct will be starting in an hour, and we’ve got a live stream ready for the proceedings. It will kick off at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET / 3 PM in the UK / 4 PM in Europe.

During the broadcast, Nintendo will be detailing upcoming content planned for the Switch title. This was first teased during the most recent general Nintendo Direct in September. We’ve thus far gotten a tease of The Roost, but not much else is known beyond that.

nintendo franchises not on switch

In a new video today, we’re going over 5 Nintendo franchises still missing on Switch.

Nintendo’s catalog is probably one of the most valuable ones in the entire gaming industry given the company’s variety of franchises from different genres. In fact, the Big N has so much on its hands that it is hard for the company to maintain all of their IPs active. Fans are always asking for new games and it’s almost impossible to please everyone.

Right now on Switch, there’s a great effort from Nintendo to offer representation for many franchises. With over four years on the market, the console has an already very impressive library with some of the biggest names of the company. However, some names are still missing, and that’s what I want to talk about in this new video. Give it a look below – and stay tuned for the bonus at the end.

[Review] Monster Crown

Monster Crown review

System: Switch
Release date: October 12, 2021
Developer: Studio Aurum
Publisher: SOEDESCO


There’s something to be said for a good battling experience. Monster taming games have dominated the handheld gaming scene for decades now, and looking back through their history, some of the best gems were games with less-than-stellar graphics that boasted a huge roster of monsters, breeding mechanics, and a simple-to-pick-up battle system that promotes changing up your teams on the regular in order to take on foes of various types. As a result, we’ve seen no shortage of developers vying for a slice of the monster-taming pie, but are all monster catching adventures created equal?

Update: Our giveaway has come to a close. Congratualtions to MilkyWay! We appreciate all of the entries. Stay tuned for more giveaways in the future.


Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, a mystery game featuring the terrifying Weeping Angels that was made by the developers of Sara Is Missing, recently saw its debut on Switch and other platforms. We’re now celebrating its release with a special giveaway.

One lucky reader will win a special edition Switch. The dock is wrapped in a skin featuring key art from Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, as pictured above.

The Switch OLED finally launched around the world yesterday. It’s not quite the “Pro” model that some hoped it would be, but it does have a number of upgrades. The obvious attraction is the new OLED screen that’s a tad bigger. Other than that, it has an updated dock with an ethernet port, new kickstand, 64GB of internal memory, and enhanced audio.

Did you manage to pick up a Switch OLED? If not, are you planning on buying one in the future, or are you happy with your current system? Let us know in the comments below.

There’s another video up on Nintendo Everything’s YouTube channel!

After three years, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is finally complete. The game is very unique and probably the most ambitious crossover in the history of gaming, or perhaps the most well-executed. We received characters from different games, companies, and countries. An event like that may never happen again.

Today’s video is a reflection of Smash on the past three years, discussing why some people love the game so much and why it’s so special. Give it a look below.
