Review: Planescape: Torment & Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition - Two Very Different RPG Gems 15.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Mouse and keyboard no longer required. Black Isle Studios’ Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale are two classic RPGs built on the same game engine that really couldn’t be more different from one another. On the one hand, you’ve got the almost completely narrative focus of Planescape, where combat is mostly an afterthought and pretty much every situation you find yourself in can be defused more creatively through the right dialogue choices. Icewind Dale, on the other hand, takes the Baldur’s Gate mould and scoops out the morality and alignment systems, inter-party dialogue and relatively open world format in favour of laser-focusing almost solely on funnelling players through endless dungeon-crawling action. They certainly make for an interesting pairing in this enhanced edition bundle, which also comes complete with Icewind Dale’s expansions Heart of Winter and Trials of the Luremaster, but are they still worth your time and money in 2019? Beamdog has taken both these award-winning classics and given ...

Shots from Nintendo Live 2019. It's a tough time to be an Animal Crossing fan - sure, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is there to keep you company, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf has enough to do to last a lifetime , but we know what you're really after: Animal Crossing: New Horizons . The game may well have been pushed back to next year - imagine, we might have already had it in our hands without the delay - but these adorable photos should hopefully help to calm your Animal Crossing needs until then. These snaps were shared by GAME Watch , showing off the Animal Crossing booth that was set up during Nintendo Live 2019 over the ...

Here's Your First Look At Pokémon Sword And Shield's Title Screen 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
A sneak Pik-achu... (sorry). We might still be a whole month away from getting our hands on Pokémon Sword and Shield , but today keeps bringing nice little surprises for those who are super keen on the franchise. Earlier, we found out the games' file size , and now we have our first glimpse at both games' title screens. The images have been shared online by Centro Pokémon and were taken at Nintendo Live 2019 , a gaming expo which took place over the weekend. A demo for the two games was playable at the event, allowing attendees to take sneaky photographs of what was ...
Video: Digital Foundry Delivers Its Verdict On The Witcher 3 On Switch 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Switcher weeeee! The Witcher 3 arrives on a Nintendo Switch near you tomorrow and, as you may already know if you've checked out our review , anyone who has yet to sample the delights of The Continent is in for a treat. The Switch version might not hold up to direct comparison with other versions on more powerful, non-portable consoles, but considering when taken on its own merits, it's another brilliant 'impossible' port to add to Switch's growing collection. Of course, if you've got even the slightest interest in the changes between the existing versions and this new Switch port, you'll want to check out the above video courtesy of our friends over at Digital Foundry . Thomas Morgan has put 'Switcher 3' up against the PS4 version and given us all a good idea of just how much of the experience has made the jump to Nintendo's portable ...

A handheld-only experience.

Launching later this month on Nintendo Switch is Anthill, a strategy game from the studio behind the wonderful SteamWorld franchise.

You can see the trailer above.

Your Fortnite V-Bucks And Items Are Safe Despite The Game's Disappearance, Says Nintendo 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Swirling around in the black hole probably. Fortnite may well be completely missing in action and unavailable to play, but Nintendo has reassured fans that their V-Bucks and in-game items are perfectly safe. Yesterday saw what has turned out to be the most spectacular of the game's live events to date , with a huge explosion of sorts seemingly wiping out the game's island as players watched in confusion. Since then, the game itself and all of Fortnite's official social media channels have been entirely silent, with players being unable to access the game at all. Developer Epic Games has been teasing the event as "the end" of the ...

The game stays ahead of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint which was another non-mover in second, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe saw a nice boost to see it blast past other games into third place. This marks the game's 128th week in the charts.

Hit The Skids With Inertial Drift, A Twin-Stick Arcade Racer On Switch Next Spring 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Joy-Con drift done right. Developer Level 91 has announced a brand new arcade racer that goes by the name of Inertial Drift , coming to Switch (and other platforms) in Spring 2020. The announcement trailer above gives you a good idea of the style of sideways racing thrills and spills to expect, including some twin-stick drifting controls that'll have you sliding faster than the pound against the euro at the suggestion of a 'no deal' British Exit from the EU. Using both analogue sticks to initiate and maintain sideways vehicular action, publishers PQube inform us that you'll be able to get your Tokyo drift on behind the wheel of 16 different automobiles and burn around 20 Japanese tracks at unsafe velocities with all the lovely sunsets and neon lighting you could ask ...
Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition - An Incredible Action-RPG Stands Strong On Switch 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Return of the White Frost. Originally released on other platforms back in 2015, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt arrives on Nintendo Switch over four years later, and it's somewhat surreal to hold such a gigantic game in the palm of your hands. Ported over by Saber Interactive, this is The Witcher 3 in almost all of its glory. The same brilliant base game, the same incredible expansions -- it's all here, and it's an impressive achievement. Many would argue that The Witcher 3 is one of the greatest role-playing titles of all time. You fill the shoes of Geralt, an experienced monster hunter for hire, who, at the beginning of the game, is tracking down a powerful sorceress -- and former lover -- named Yennefer. The initial scope of Geralt's adventure is limited, but after a couple of hours, the story slowly begins to unravel, producing a tangled web of world-ending danger, personal struggle, and political ...
Pokémon Sword And Shield File Size Seemingly Revealed Ahead Of Release 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates

Digital buyers take note.

It looks like we may have stumbled across the file size for Pokémon Sword and Shield earlier than expected, all thanks to the early appearance of a download card.

Twitter user @MIN428 has shared the following image online, showing off a download card for the upcoming games that was found in a retail store. These cards are often available as a way for fans to pick up a digital copy of their chosen game while visiting their local store, although we wouldn't usually expect to see them a whole month before the game releases.

Review: Baldur's Gate And Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Editions - Two RPG Classics On The Go 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Bhaal of the Lights. The Switch has seen some excellent RPG action in recent months, with Pillars of Eternity and Divinity: Original Sin 2 to name just two of the heavy hitters landing on the eShop in quick succession. Nintendo’s portable platform certainly feels like a perfect home for these epic adventures, with players able to dip in and out of huge quests whenever they feel like it in handheld mode – and now it’s the turn of the inspiration behind Pillars and Divinity to take centre stage as the Baldur’s Gate saga arrives in its enhanced edition form, all tarted up and ready to take players on one hell of a ride. First things first, there’s an absolutely huge amount of content packed into Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Editions , with the two base games sat alongside Siege of Dragonspear, Throne of Bhaal and The Black Pits 1 and 2. We’re easily talking hundreds of hours of old-school isometric RPG goodness to hack your way through; a whole world full of adventures. But do these golden ...

A Revised Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Has Been Spotted In Stores 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
But it doesn't look like much has changed. Over the last few days, we've been seeing reports of a new, revised Switch Pro Controller model being spotted in stores. With the recent Switch console revision being pretty significant, some will no doubt expect that a new Pro Controller could be worth picking up too, but it doesn't actually seem like all that much has changed. The first mention of the new controller arrived last Tuesday; Resetera user SiG shared the following image which appears to show a revised model available in-store. Up until now, the most recent Pro Controller model number we've seen is 104889D, but this D version has now been bumped up to an ...
Super Nintendo World's Construction Is Coming Along Nicely, New Photos Appear 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates

Here's a sneak peek.

As you'll likely know already if you keep a regular eye on our site, a 'Super Nintendo World' theme park is planned to open next year at Universal Studios, Japan. Construction started a while ago, but more and more photographs are starting to appear, giving us an early look at how it's all shaping up.

The snaps have been taken from other parks at the Studios; some elements are obscured by scaffolding and it's far from finished, but you can definitely get a good sense of how it's going to turn out. The following images have been shared online by Twitter user, @lcastudios_usj.

Video: Nintendo Just Held An Hour-Long Splatoon Concert With K.K. Slider As The Support Act 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
What a line up! Forget the million-seller chart-toppers. Forget that band who have been your favourite since your teenage years. This right here is the concert you've been waiting for. As part of the Nintendo Live 2019 event which took place over the weekend, Nintendo held a concert starring Callie, Marie, Pearl, and Marina of Splatoon fame. As we've seen in the past, they were accompanied by a live band for almost an hour of non-stop Splatoon hits (it's genuinely worth watching in our opinion), but this time they were joined on stage by Animal Crossing's K.K ...

And Just Like That, Fortnite Is No More 14.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates

Ending with a bang.

For the last couple of years, Fortnite has been the biggest game in the world. Now, it's gone.

Today saw the end of Fortnite's tenth in-game season, with a spectacular live event taking place which was expected to tease the start of Season 11 and perhaps an entirely new map for players to explore. The live event took place as expected, but the game's island exploded and now there's... Well, there's just nothing.

Review: Mable & The Wood - A Metroidvania That Sadly Fails To Excite 13.10.2019 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
It’s morphin’ time! Mable & The Wood is yet another example of a game with huge potential that’s somehow been mostly squandered thanks to poor execution. It takes the tried-and-tested idea of shape-shifting (famously utilised in games like Altered Beast and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess ) and runs with it, moulding its exploration and combat mechanics around the concept. The problem, though, is that while it's a perfectly serviceable platformer for the most part, it’s all been done before – and quite a bit better than this, too. You play as Mable, a young girl awakened by a group of cultists to save the world. Endowed with an impressive sword, Mable is unfortunately far too dainty to carry it properly, let alone swing it. Instead, she’s granted with the unique ability to morph into a fairy, allowing her to zip along the environment and summon the sword back to her waiting grip – Thor would be proud. As she navigates the Metroidvania -inspired world, she encounters numerous, formidable bosses, ...
