The Digest - Nintendo Everything

Submit a news tip

Nintendo surprised everyone last month with the announcement of Nintendo Labo last month. Going after kids and kids at heart, Nintendo Labo will allow Switch owners to make creations out of cardboard and then use them with compatible applications / mini-games.

Using cardboard may have seemed out of left field, but it ended up being a natural fit. Nintendo commented on the entire Nintendo Labo project including the reception and the decision to feature cardboard.

Here’s what was shared:

Legend of Kay Anniversary is coming to Switch, THQ Nordic has announced. A release is planned for sometime in 2018.

You may recall that Legend of Kay Anniversary previously appeared on Wii U. At the moment we aren’t aware of any major changes from that version.

tinyBuild has published a couple of games on Switch thus far. Last year, the company brought Mr. Shifty and Phantom Trigger to the system. tinyBuild hasn’t had any new announcements for Switch in recent months, but that’s about to change.

A new “Hello Switch” broadcast will be held tomorrow in which six new games will be announced. It’ll be hosted at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM in the UK / 7 PM in Europe.

System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: February 8, 2018
Developer: ThirtyThree
Publisher: Good Shepard Entertainment

With all of the great first-party games released for the Switch since its release, it’s easy to forget the waves and waves of fantastic indie games that are filling up the eShop. ATOMIK: RunGunJumpGun is the latest title to enter the floodgates of the Switch, and it’s safe to say that the system’s streak of hits is still chugging along.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 version 1.3.0 is landing next week, director Tetsuya Takahashi has confirmed. This will be a rather substantial update as it’s comprised of the Advanced New Game Mode and more. Continue on below for more, though be warned of potential spoilers.

This week’s European Nintendo Downloads are as follows:

Switch Retail

Dragon Quest Builders – €49.99 (available February 9)

This week’s North American Nintendo Downloads are as follows*:

Switch Retail

Dragon Quest Builders – $49.99 (available February 9)
The Longest Five Minutes – $39.99 (available February 13)

Update: The My Nintendo website went into a little more detail on the process. In Europe, one Gold Point equals 1 cent, so if you have 500 Gold Points, you could buy a game that costs 5€ with those points or get a 5€ discount on a more expensive game.

Also, how many gold points you get per purchase is changing. Here are the new exchange rates for digital and physical games:

Nintendo recently announced their next mobile game, Mario Kart Tour. They didn’t really divulge any details beyond the game’s name, other than a very vague release date of “fiscal year 2018”. However, we learned a pretty crucial fact today. According to Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki, Isao Moriyasu, the CEO of DeNA, Nintendo’s partner in the mobile games business, said that Mario Kart Tour would be “free-to-start”, like Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.


Maintenance update

Posted 2 months ago by in Site updates | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Hello! If you’ve been having any issues accessing the site over the past couple of days, it’s been intentional. Mostly.

We’ve been carrying out some much-needed site maintenance this week. We didn’t really expect things to last as long as they did, unfortunately. If we anticipated maintenance taking multiple days, we would have provided advance notice. The site has been up for the most part, but today in particular there were issues. We’re mostly done… for this week anyway, though if you happen to see any downtime (it’s very unlikely), you’ll know why.

There’s actually a ton that we still have to do from a technical perspective, but in the near-term, it shouldn’t impact anyone who visits Nintendo Everything normally. This year, hopefully sooner rather than later, we hope to make some improvements that won’t just be for the backend of the site. While we’re definitely not going for an overhaul/redesign, we’ll be implementing at least one change that has been requested in the past.

Thanks for bearing with us!
