Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Review
If you’re looking for a great platformer to play on your Nintendo Switch, then look no further than one of the latest ports; Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.
This game has already seen the light of day on all the other platforms, and now it’s time for it to shine once again, only this time on Nintendo’s newest console; the Nintendo Switch. If you would like to learn more about what this game has to offer then check out our review.
No Virtual Console coming to the Nintendo Switch
E3 is fast approaching and it’ll be here before we know it. We’ve already begun getting information on what is to come – but some of it has been met with mixed emotions. For Nintendo Switch owners, we have been very patiently waiting for the launch of its online service and just last week we got some details on pricing and what will be included with the subscription based service.
Out of all the details that were included about the upcoming service coming to us this fall, the one that stood out the most was the fact that Nintendo will be doing away with its popular Virtual Console downloads. We’re not 100% clear on the details, but we know that we will still get access to some of Nintendo’s classic titles, including: Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Ice Climber, etc, but how do Nintendo plan on giving us access to these games? Will it be timed based, will we be allowed to buy these games? Many questions are left unanswered and we’re all hoping for some definitive answers soon.
Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition being released this week
For fans of The Legend of Zelda franchise; myself included, we will be able to play Hyrule Warriors on the Nintendo Switch starting on May 18.
This is another port coming to the Nintendo Switch, but definitely one deserving to be on the hybrid console. Nintendo has been the home to many great The Legend of Zelda games and now it will share its home to this game along with the Wii U and the 3DS.
For the Definitive Edition, all 29 playable characters from both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS editions will be included, along with all of the previous downloadable content. Additionally, it will include new outfits based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for both the hero of time; Link and Princess Zelda.
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy releasing sooner than expected
These days we’ve grown accustomed to delays to many upcoming game releases, so it’s a bit of fresh air when we hear that a game will be released sooner than expected.
News of the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy being released sooner was announced via the official Crash Bandicoot Twitter account, announcing that the trilogy will now be released on the Nintendo Switch on June 29. This will be 11 days earlier than what was previously expected.
Fans who never played this trilogy – previously only released on PS4 – will soon be able to play through Crash’s adventures on the go when it comes to Nintendo Switch.
…And Battle Royale For All – Crazy Justice coming to the Nintendo Switch in June
If you ask gamers what is the most popular genre at the moment, most of them would say Battle Royale, and if you asked most people what is the most popular game at the moment they would most likely say Fortnite, even if they have no idea what the game is. So, it’s easy to see that if you want to make a successful game, then going the route of a Battle Royale style game wouldn’t be the worst idea.
Xbox and PC have PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Fortnite is available on PC, Xbox and PS4, but Nintendo is missing out on these popular games. So, it only makes sense that a developer would want to get a Battle Royale game on Nintendo’s latest console, along with these other major consoles. That game will be Crazy Justice and it will be coming at us from Black Riddle Studios sometime in June. And what’s more, it will also feature cross-platform play between PC, Xbox and the Nintendo Switch.
So, there we have it – if you’ve been looking to catch up on the best Nintendo focused stories of the week then these 5 are as good a place as any to start. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
