With half the cast MIA, Drew and Scott hold the show together by a myriad of news topics including Microsoft’s Xbox One X, PlayStation, the ever controversial No Mans Sky and continuously reoccurring Pokemon conversations.
The Nintendo Switch has sold almost 5 million consoles worldwide, and with Splatoon 2 having just been released on Nintendo Switch, the crew (with the exception of Charlie) ask, answer and discuss their experiences with Nintendo’s hit shooter.
During a slow news week, the crew gets together to casually discuss what games they’ve been playing, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC Pack 1.
Nintendo announces their plans to release the SNES Classic Edition on September 29th. The crew discusses the incredible list of 21 games coming to the retro machine, as well as their favorite Super Nintendo games of all time.
With Drew out at E3 and Charlie losing power in the middle of this recording, Scott and Jeremy get together to discuss the highlights of E3.
Between Anthem, Super Mario Odyssey, the fact that a core Pokémon RPG and Metroid Prime 4 are both in development for the Swith and so many other big games announcement, this year’s E3 holds a lot to talk about.
When Rocket League released just over two years ago, it became an instant smash hit. Originally released on the PS4 and PC, then shortly after on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch owners will finally be able to get their hands on Psyonix’s Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars sequel.
Given the portable and home console nature of the Nintendo Switch, we can’t help but feel that Rocket League will feel right at home on Nintendo’s new hybrid console. No firm release date has been announced, but Switch owners can expect to see Rocket League this holiday.
Fans of 2D and 3D Metroid games alike have been clamoring for a new entry in the series for years. Well, apparently this is the year those fans have been looking forward to. Hot off the heels of the announcement in the Nintendo E3 2017 Spotlight that Metroid Prime 4 is currently in development, Nintendo also announced that Metroid: Samus Returns will also make its way to 3DS in September.
Metroid: Samus Returns is a 3DS remake of the Game Boy title: Metroid II: Return of Samus. The game will feature a plethora of updates including visuals (duh!), free-aiming of Samus’s weapon, melee countering enemies, pinning locations on maps for future reference and the brand new Aieon abilities.
Nintendo has promised continued support for their 3DS family of consoles, and with Metroid Prime 4 likely still a couple years out, this seems like the perfect title for the aging platform.
Following Nintendo’s tweet yesterday, we now know what Nintendo, The Pokémon Company and Game Freak have in store for Switch and 3DS owners in 2017.
Nintendo kicked off the eight minute direct announcing Pokkén Tournament DX, scheduled for a September 22nd release on Nintendo Switch. The deluxe version of the Pokémon fighting game is getting a new 3v3 team battle mode, online ranked play and friend-only group matches. The game will also feature local wireless multiplayer and the ability to play the game with a single Joy-Con. Pokkén Tournament DX will also feature five new characters: Darkrai, Scizor, Empoleon, Croagunk and Decidueye.
Though we did not receive the mainline Pokémon game for Switch we were hoping for, we did get some information about the next 3DS outing. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be hitting the Nintendo 3DS line of systems on November 17th. The new titles will feature an alternate story, and new Pokémon not included in the original Sun and Moon games.

Could this be a new Pokémon title for the Switch that fans have been asking for, or will it just be information on the upcoming update to Pokémon GO slated to add new legendary Pokémon and PVP functionality? Only time will tell. In the mean time, mark your calendars for June 6th!
