Rocket League coming to Nintendo Switch Holiday 2017

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.

Metroid 2 Remake coming to 3DS September 15th

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.

Pokkén Tournament DX Coming to Switch

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.

With E3 just around the corner, make sure to check back to Switchcore.net for more Pokémon news.

Pokémon Direct Coming Tomorrow

The internet is aflutter this morning with The Pokémon Company tweeting out from their official Twitter account that a new Pokémon Direct is coming June 6th at 7am PT/10am ET.

Additionally, on the official Pokémon website, a post has been added stating “Big Pokemon News on the Way.”  Following the Direct, coverage of the news will take place at Pokémon.com.

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!
