Mario Kart Is The Best-Selling Racing Franchise Of All Time

Tyler Lee May 22, 2017

When it comes to racing games, there are many that gamers can choose from. You can go for more street style racing with the Need For Speed franchise, or alternatively you can choose to race super cars with the Forza franchise. However if you want something fun and silly, there’s Nintendo’s Mario Kart.

So out of all the racing franchises out there, which is the most popular? While we can’t speak for other countries, a recent report from the NPD Group has revealed that Mario Kart is the best-selling racing franchise of all time in the US. According to analyst Mat Piscatella, “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the month’s top-selling title. As a property, Mario Kart is the all-time best-selling racing franchise in the U.S.”

That being said this shouldn’t really come as a surprise. Last week it was reported that the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console in the US for two months in a row, and that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe having only been released for less than a month has managed to moved 500,000 units including digital purchases.

We’ve also seen how the Mario Kart franchise has the power to spur console sales, like with the Wii U where it actually helped to boost console sales following the launch of Mario Kart 8.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers Trailer Released

Tyler Lee May 19, 2017

If you love fighting games, there will be some options that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, such as Arms and Super Smash Bros. However if those games are a little too cute for your tastes and you wanted something more “serious”, then Capcom’s Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers might be worth looking forward to.

For those unfamiliar, the game is an upcoming release for the Nintendo Switch where it is essentially an updated version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo that was originally released back in 1994. Now thanks to a recently released trailer, gamers can look forward to checking out some gameplay footage where the video shows off the game’s graphics modes, where users can switch between old school pixelated graphics or the new HD ones.

In addition to the updated graphics, the game will also introduce a new mode called “Way of the Hado” which is a first-person mode that feels rather novel, although admittedly it also looks quite fun, especially if shooting Hadoukens is always something that you’ve dreamt of doing since you were a kid.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is set for a release on the 26th of May, 2017. In the meantime you can check out some of the gameplay footage in the video above.

No Plans For Destiny 2 To Arrive On The Nintendo Switch

Tyler Lee May 19, 2017

The Nintendo Switch is doing quite well for itself and if there was ever a definition of a comeback, this would be it, especially considering that many were quite skeptical about Nintendo’s future following the flop that was the Wii U. However it seems that despite the Switch’s initial success, not all developers are falling over themselves to put games on the console.

In fact if you were hoping that the recently announced Destiny 2 would arrive for the Nintendo Switch, you would be disappointed to learn that will not be happening. Speaking to IGN, the project’s lead Mark Noseworthy revealed that there are currently no plans to bring the game onto the Switch.

Noseworthy was quoted as saying, “I think it’s pretty unrealistic, given we’re an online-only game, right? The Switch, because it’s a portable – and I love my Switch, I’ve got Breath of the Wild here, I’ve got it with me. It’s incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it’s at, I don’t want leave anyone with the possibility of, like, ‘it’s a thing we’ll consider, maybe next year.’ There’s no plans right now for Switch.”

Destiny 2 was recently announced where it will be making its way onto the PC, something its predecessor did not do. Maybe Destiny 2 for the Switch could happen as Noseworthy did not give a hard no as an answer, but we guess gamers probably shouldn’t hold their breath.

Nintendo Switch To Get Splatoon 2 Themed Joy-Con Colors

Tyler Lee May 17, 2017

When the Nintendo Switch first launched, the colors of the Joy-Cons available came in either a grey finish, or a neon red or neon blue finish. However last month Nintendo announced a new neon yellow finish, and it seems that the company is continuing with its neon theme as they have since unveiled new Joy-Con colors themed after Splatoon 2.

As you can see in the image above, Nintendo will be launching a Splatoon 2 themed Nintendo Switch which will feature new Joy-Cons that offer up neon green and neon pink color options. There will also be a similarly themed Pro controller where the bottom grips are also colored in neon green and pink.

We have to say that it looks pretty nifty and if gamers are looking for new Joy-Con color options, then these could be worth checking out. However the announcement of the Splatoon 2 themed accessories and bundles was made in Japan so we’re not sure if there are plans to bring them to other markets around the world, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they did.

Splatoon 2 is set for a launch on the 21st of July so presumably these accessories should also be launched around that time as well, but what do you guys think? Do you like what you’re seeing so far?

Nintendo Switch Was The Best-Selling Console In April

Tyler Lee May 17, 2017

With the Nintendo Wii U being such a huge flop and with Sony and Microsoft pulling miles ahead of the company with the PS4 and Xbox One, we’re sure many have wondered if Nintendo could ever recover, or if we could see the yet another gaming company fold onto itself. Turns out the Switch was the company’s saving grace.

In fact it doesn’t really seem like a fluke because according to Nintendo’s recent announcement, the Switch is the best-selling video game system for the month of April, which the company wanted to remind everyone makes it the second month in a row that the Switch has led the way in terms of video game hardware sales.

According to figures from the NPD Group, the console managed to sell 280,000 units in the US for the month of April which brings Nintendo one step closer (or 280,000 steps) to beating the Wii U’s lifetime sales within its first year. In addition to the Switch’s sales, it seems that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has proven to be a hit and managed 460,000 physical units alone, which when combined with digital sales brings the total of 550,000 units.

Like we saw in the past with the Wii U, first-party Nintendo titles have typically been able to help boost console sales and while we’re not sure what the attachment rate is for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, we wouldn’t be surprised if it did help.

Ubisoft Has One Unannounced Game For The Nintendo Switch

Tyler Lee May 16, 2017

When the Nintendo Wii U was first launched, Ubisoft was one of the companies that supported the console at launch with the launch of ZombiU, a game that took advantage of the Wii U’s GamePad. Now if you’re looking forward to playing more Ubisoft games on Nintendo platforms, you’ll be pleased to learn that the company is developing titles for the Nintendo Switch.

In a tweet by Daniel Ahmad, he quotes Ubisoft’s recent financial results in which the company revealed that they are working on new titles for the Switch, one of which has yet to be announced. Now we know that Ubisoft is working on games for the Switch, such as Rayman Legends and Monopoly, but we are curious as to what this particular title might be.

According to Nintendo Everything, one rumored title from Ubisoft is said to be Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle which is something that sounds rather interesting, where it is a two-player local co-op game which features several recognizable Nintendo characters. We’re not sure when Ubisoft plans on revealing what this particular title will be, but E3 sounds like a pretty good platform to do so.

Nintendo will not be hosting a press conference at E3 this year. Instead the company will be doing their own presentation which presumably will be either Nintendo Direct or Treehouse, and hopefully we will learn more about Ubisoft’s upcoming title for the Switch.

Switch Owners Reporting That The Console Is Taking Screenshots On Its Own

Tyler Lee May 16, 2017

The Nintendo Switch has been on the market for a while now, but it seems that there are still some software problems plaguing the console. According to quite a few user reports (via Nintendo Everything), it seems that the console has been taking screenshots on its own without any input from the user.

One user wrote, “I have noticed over the past few days that my switch is taking screen shots without me pressing the capture button. I’m not sure if it is on an interval but I have noticed it only happening when in handheld mode or when using the joycons not the pro controller.” Some are speculating that this could be somehow tied with Minecraft because the problem only manifested itself after they installed the game.

A report from Kotaku UK also seems to confirm this theory, with the article’s author Matt Wales experiencing a similar issue himself after installing the game. Wales also claims that the console is waking itself up to take screenshots despite it being docked. No word on how to fix the issue but some say that restarting their console has resolved it.

In the meantime Nintendo has recently issued a new update for the console. While we cant guarantee that the update will fix the problem, you could always try that if restarting the console doesn’t work.

Pokemon Mobile Card Game Rumored To Be In The Works

Tyler Lee May 15, 2017

The Pokemon franchise has existed in various forms, such as the Game Boy version. It later spawned other versions like a physical collectible cards version which resulted in many cards that are worth a lot of money. Now it seems that Pokemon could be headed the digital route, or at least that’s what a report from The Wall Street Journal is suggesting.

According to the report, they claim that the Pokemon Company is working on a digital card game. Not much is known about the game in question, but presumably it could be similar in nature to the physical version, except that it will be digital. We’ve already seen how some physical card games like Magic: the Gathering have spawned digital counterparts, so this doesn’t really come as a surprise.

Alternatively it could be something else entirely that is separate from the game. Perhaps we could be looking at a card game that plays much simpler and can be loaded up on mobile phones, kind of like Blizzard’s Hearthstone. In any case the company declined to comment on the rumor so it’s just something we’ll have to wait and see.

In the meantime the same report revealed that Nintendo could be working on bringing Zelda onto mobile, but hopefully we’ll have those details at E3 during Nintendo’s own briefing that they’ll be hosting themselves.

Microsoft Explains Why Minecraft For Switch Runs At 720p

Tyler Lee May 15, 2017

If there is one criticism about the Nintendo Switch it is that its games don’t look quite as graphically pleasing compared to platforms like the PS4/PS4 Pro or the Xbox One. An example would be Minecraft for the Switch which was revealed to run at 720p, which had some wondering why did Microsoft make the decision, or was it because of hardware limitations?

The good news is that it seems that the reason behind the 720p resolution of the game isn’t because that the Switch is not powerful enough, but rather it turns out that there might be some technical issues which is why Microsoft opted to keep it at 720p. This was confirmed in TIME’s review of the game in which Microsoft told the publication that there were some issues switching from docked to undocked.

The report reads, “Microsoft notes that Minecraft’s 720p docked/undocked resolution isn’t a question of system power, but stems from issues currently experienced shifting from one resolution to the other when docking/undocking.” Based on this, it would imply that the Switch could potentially run the game at 1080p, although whether or not that will happen remains to be seen.

In any case Nintendo’s philosophy has mostly been about focusing on the gameplay rather than on the technical aspects of their hardware, and if the sales of the Switch are any indication, it seems that their gamers don’t particularly mind either.
