Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – A Heroic Presentation

As we previously posted, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would be receiving it's own Direct hosted by none other than Sakurai himself. As expected, this presentation went over The Hero's moveset, and showed off a few more features from the 4.0.0 update.

Sakurai starts off by playing a development version of Smash Ultimate and goes over The Hero, showing off the differences between each costume, including the different voice actors for each one, and then by going over their moveset, alongside their unique MP mechanic, and of course, their Final Smash. You can see all the details in full in the presentation below!

Whilst the majority of the presentation went over The Hero, towards the end we saw a few more additions, including some Mii Fighter costumes based off the Dragon Quest series, as well as an updated Final Smash meter, which now depletes over time when it's full, making players use it before it runs out and lose their Final Smash. Adventure Mode also receives a Very Easy di…

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct Announced for July 30th

The month after E3 is always a slow one, with news slowly dropping until the regular programming hits back around August/September, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo giving us a few more details, including a release date for Luigi's Mansion 3, and now a Direct for Smash Ultimate, which will give us a release date for The Hero, and it will be 22 minutes long!

The Direct will be hosted by Sakurai himself and will go into detail over The Hero's moveset, as well as give us a concrete release date, outside of the Summer 2019 (or Winter 2019 for us Australians) window we received at E3.
Join #SmashBrosUltimate Director Masahiro Sakurai on 30/7, 11pm AEST in a video presentation featuring an in-depth look at upcoming DLC Fighter, Hero from the #DragonQuest series! Alongside new details, he’ll reveal when the fighter will arrive.

Luigi's Mansion 3 Gets a Fitting October 31st Release Date

With no release date given during E3, and only given a brief 2019 release date, it was inevitable Luigi's Mansion 3 would be receiving an update sooner or later to still meet its targeted release date. Nintendo have now announced that the game will be getting a rather fitting release date, being October 31st, also known as Halloween.

Nintendo games usually release on Friday's these days, but it seems with this title Nintendo are shaking things up a bit to give it something a little more special, as a haunted Luigi's Mansion game makes perfect sense to release on Halloween, which is a Thursday this year.

Nintendo Switch Lite Announced, Coming September 20th

Yesterday Nintendo revealed their newest hardware revision - the Nintendo Switch Lite - in an attempt to bring over their 3DS audience to the Switch era. The Switch Lite will be a dedicated handheld system, as opposed to the standards hybrid nature, and will release on September 20th.

The biggest change with the Switch Lite is that it's a handheld only console. That means no detachable joy-cons or IR, no HD rumble, no TV output (which means no docked mode gameplay), and no tabletop mode. Though these may be seen as drawbacks to those who wish to upgrade their system, the Switch Lite is intended to bring Nintendo handheld 3DS audience over to the Switch, and with games such as Pokemon and Animal Crossing on the horizon, this seems like a very smart move on Nintendo's behalf.

Introducing #NintendoSwitchLite – a compact, lightweight system that's dedicated to handheld play!

This new addition to the #NintendoSwitch family arrives on 20/09 in 3 different colours.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Coming to Nintendo Switch

Announced during Nintendo's E3 presentation last week, was the news that the Spyro Reignited Trilogy would be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.

Though a lot of speculation lead many to believe the game would be coming in August, it doesn't seem they were too far off the mark, with the game officially announced to be coming to the platform on September 3rd. Much like the existing versions, it also seems only the first game will be on the cart, with the other two needing to be downloaded from the eShop. Oh, and it will also be coming to PC via Steam on the same date.
