Review: Vitamin Connection - A Charmingly Unique Co-Op Experience, When It Works 22.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates

Co-op cure-'em-up is a mostly sweet pill to swallow.

It might sound like a health supplement conference, but Vitamin Connection turns out to be one of the zestiest Switch exclusives of the year so far – which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise when you consider that the developer behind it, WayForward, is responsible for the joyful Shantae series.

This is no '90s-inspired 2D platformer, though. In fact, it's difficult to pin down exactly what Vitamin Connection is. It's a casual shmup, a motion-controlled maze runner, and a mini-game compendium all smooshed together and set to a J-Pop beat. Oh, and just to add to the gaming gumbo, there's a distinct two-player couch co-op focus to it as well.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Gets Rated In South Korea 22.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates

Now we just need a release date.

Although we shouldn't get too carried away when a game gets rated, it's always a promising sign when it does happen. In this particular case, we're talking about a recent classification for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition in South Korea.

The definitive edition of the game - "which chronicles the adventures of Shulk and Fiora" - was announced during a Nintendo Direct last September and since then it's been listed on the company's official website for a 2020 release. Now, it's been rated by the South Korean Ratings Board.

Review: Warface - A Perfectly Competent Free-To-Play Shooter For Your Switch 22.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Face for radio. While most of us – this writer included – have given up any hope of seeing a Call of Duty or a similar triple-A multiplayer shooter on Switch anytime soon, some studios have attempted to fill this void with their own take on asymmetrical gunfights. Some have been a success ( Paladins being a fine example), while others have ranged from the passable ( Modern Combat Blackout ) to the abysmal ( Bullet Battle: Evolution ). So where does Warface sit? Is this a worthy alternative to the usual shooter fare? And how does an online shooter in the traditional mould translate to Switch’s hardware constraints? The CryEngine-powered FPS launched on PC in 2013 (a month prior to the launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts and the current generation of console hardware) so it’s certainly been knocking around the proverbial battlefield for a while. It was one of a number of shooters looking to undercut the FPS big boys with a free-to-play model, but as with all things, the lack of an initial price does mean you’re ...

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct No Longer Mentions One-Time-Only Save Data Recovery 22.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates

More details will be shared in the future.

During the recent Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct, Nintendo explained how 'sometime after launch' and only under 'certain circumstances' (for example, 'console damage' and 'loss') would the company be able to restore save data.

The catch? It's apparently a one-time-only deal for Nintendo Switch Online members. It means that if an unfortunate incident was to occur not once, but twice, and you lost your Animal Crossing save data, Nintendo would not offer its assistance or support.

Get over here.

One iconic fighting series that hasn't been represented in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate yet is Mortal Kombat. While Nintendo or Masahiro Sakurai have never said anything publically about a character from this brutal and bloody fighter being added to the roster, Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon recently told Shacknews he would "love" to see it happen.

This was his exact reply when he was asked about the possible inclusion of characters like Scorpion and Sub-Zero in Smash:

Talking Point: Saber Interactive's Latest Witcher 3 Update Sets A New Standard For Switch Ports 22.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
PC cross-saves could help Nintendo compete with next-gen consoles. Earlier this week the long-rumoured patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Switch dropped and delivered some significant visual upgrades and PC-like options to tweak the graphical experience to your liking. The port was remarkable when it first launched last year, despite its undeniably blurry presentation compared to versions of the game on other platforms, but that was a small price to pay to have the option of playing this sprawling, epic action-RPG on a portable system. This latest update, though, takes the Switch port to another level entirely. The real beauty of patch 3.6 is that any Switch owner with a decent PC can now get the best of both worlds: an excellent portable experience... and the full-fat 1080p (or higher) deal when they get ...
Against All Odds, the DOOM and Animal Crossing Communities Have United 22.2.2020 IGN Video Games
DOOM Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons may be two wildly different games on the surface, but right now they have two things in common: fan communities that are in full support of each other come launch day.
Feature: WayForward On Vitamin Connection's Switch Exclusivity, Challenges And Influences 21.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
"[We looked] closely at games like Jet Set Radio, and the Katamari series". In the three years since the console launched, the Nintendo Switch has firmly established itself as the king of the hill when it comes to local multiplayer gaming. There's certainly no shortage of great co-operative games on Switch , and the ability to slide off Joy-Con anywhere at any time makes it ideal for enjoying with friends and family. The latest co-op game to arrive on the system is Vitamin Connection from WayForward, the studio probably most famous for the excellent Shantae series of platformers, although their back catalogue contains a trove of retro-inspired gems from Mighty Switch Force to The Mummy Demastered . We caught up with Vitamin Connection's director James Montagna to chat about the Switch exclusive, his role on the project and how he maintains his energy and enthusiasm for games and game ...

Feature: Samurai Shodown Director "Cried Out In Surprise" When He Saw The Switch Version 21.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
He wants to reboot Garou: Mark of the Wolves next. Switch fans have had to wait a little longer than their PS4 and Xbox One-owning pals when it comes to SNK's Samurai Shodown reboot, but the important thing is that the game has made it to Nintendo's hybrid console intact – and it's really quite an achievement. We were fortunate enough to get the chance to speak with the game's director Nobuyuki Kuroki prior to its release. Kuroki began his career with SNK as an artist working on the Fatal Fury series, and would also contribute to games such as Real Bout Fatal Fury , Art of Fighting 3 , Samurai Shodown 64 and the legendary Garou: Mark of the Wolves ...

Almost 1,000 Players Give To Charity Via Lydia's Donation DLC On Switch, New Bundle Now Available 21.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
Raising money for Fragile Childhood. Last month saw the launch of Lydia on Nintendo Switch, a narrative game that's based on the real experiences and "tragic childhood memories" of its developers. We thought it was one of the most emotionally impactful games on the console when we played it for review , so we'd definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't already. The game launched alongside an optional $1 / £0.90 DLC purchase which gives players an in-game colouring book for Lydia, but more importantly helps raise money for Fragile Childhood , a non-profit organisation preventing harm caused by parental substance abuse. Today, publisher Nakana.io has revealed that almost 1,000 players have generously spent their money on the DLC, releasing a full game and DLC bundle as a ...
Kunai Team Discusses The "Very Stressful" Impacts Of Metacritic Review-Bombing 21.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
"You hope it doesn't affect sales". 'Review-bombing' seems to be becoming more and more popular these days, with Kunai becoming the latest game to receive such treatment from a disgruntled stranger. If you're unaware, the term refers to the act of giving games a very low and unjustified user score on websites such as Metacritic, lowering its overall user review score average and therefore indicating that it's a 'bad' game. We've almost come to expect it with certain major releases - both major Pokémon releases have been targetted on Switch, with fans being quick to accuse developer Game Freak of every trick under the sun, and games like Astral Chain have also come under fire simply for being exclusive to the console - but the trend appears to be moving towards indie games, ...
Review: Two Point Hospital - Arguably The Best Version Of An Acclaimed Modern Classic 21.2.2020 Nintendo Life | Latest Updates
A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Harkening back to the “good old days” of Theme Hospital from Bullfrog in the '90s, Two Point Hospital wraps the same irreverent humour into a modern game that introduces a whole new generation to the joys of medicine. This is a game about managing expectations. Patients expect to be treated and healed, staff expect to earn pay raises, and health inspectors expect not to have to come in and shut the whole operation down. In practice, it boils down to building a hospital and trying to keep the lights on, and as an added bonus, keep the patients alive. In this privatised healthcare system, players earn money and a coveted three-star rating by keeping patients, staff, health inspectors and your bank balance happy. Get it wrong, though, and you’ll find yourself sacking staff, surrounded by litter and having to deal with people relieving themselves in the hallway. Oh, and did we mention the ghosts of dead ...
