Nintendo Announces Super Smash Bros for Nintendo Switch!

No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you here. It’s really happened. Nintendo has announced Super Smash Bros for Nintendo Switch!

Yep, right at the end of today’s Direct, a very interesting little teaser trailer was released. This trailer may have appeared to be Splatoon 2 related, but infact it was anything but. Instead, it revealed the Inklings were coming to Smash Bros.

And that’s not all. Oh no, it also revealed that Super Smash Bros for Nintendo Switch will be releasing this year.

Yes really. Super Smash Bros for Nintendo Switch is coming in 2018. That’s one hell of a turnaround if accurate, and basically confirms the game is far further into development than anyone would have imagined.

So watch the Smash Bros teaser trailer again below:

And let us know what you think of the announcement in the comments below. Are you excited for it? What characters and stages do you want to see in Smash Bros for Switch?

Because Super Smash Bros really is coming to Nintendo Switch very soon!

Luigi’s Mansion is Coming to the 3DS!

As you likely know, Luigi’s Mansion got a sequel on the 3DS back in 2011. Titled Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon (or just Luigi’s Mansion 2 for those in Europe and Japan), the game had Luigi return to his ghostbusting roots in an adventure across multiple mansions with new ghosts and opponents to face at every turn. It was a great game, and one of the real highlights of the Year of Luigi as a whole.

But it seems it won’t be the only Luigi’s Mansion on the system for much longer. Oh no, the original Luigi’s Mansion is being released there too.

Yeah, you heard us right. Remember the GameCube Luigi’s Mansion game? The smaller scale survival horror title that kicked off the franchise to begin with?

Well as it turns out, Nintendo’s now porting that over to the 3DS as well. It’ll come with improved graphics, likely usage of the 3D graphics feature and an all new boss rush mode to face off against the portrait ghosts at any one time. Here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it already:

As you can tell, it actually works really well on the system. Seriously, it doesn’t look downgraded at all on a graphics level, and where gameplay is concerned it’s basically a direct copy of the original with some new neat tweaks to movement speed added in. That’s pretty damn impressive for a system like the 3DS.

So, if you’re interested, check it out. It’ll be available to buy sometime this year and will offer everything you loved about the first game and then some!

So, while we don’t have any predictions right now, we hope you’ll enjoy our coverage of the event. Sit back, turn on whatever Nintendo livestream you want to watch this on and check out our thoughts on the event right here.

Nintendo Announces Nintendo Direct for March 8th

Well, it’s finally here. After weeks of people asking about another Nintendo Direct (and crazy predictions to the same), Nintendo has announced that the next one will air on March 8th at 5pm ET. This Direct will be 30 minutes in length, with announcements for both 3DS and Switch games (including Mario Tennis Aces for the latter).

Here’s the announcement about it on Nintendo’s Twitter page:

As well as the related ones by Nintendo UK and Nintendo JP:

It’s pretty big news all round and offers the potential for quite a few interesting announcements. Indeed, as one look at social media will prove, it seems Nintendo fans have taken the announcement and ran with it to mean anything and everything is coming to the console. Super Mario Odyssey DLC? Yup, some people are even saying a Luigi’s Mansion themed kingdom could be included. Pokemon Switch? Again, people are predicting it could happen here.

And from Smash Bros to Fire Emblem to god knows what else, the predictions are flying thick and fast. Hell, there are so many at this point that the ‘leakers’ behind them are calling each other out on sites like Twitter!

As for us? Well we’ll just keep quiet and see what tomorrow brings. It’s Nintendo, it’s 2018 and it’s a console that needs new announcements, so we’re sure whatever does get shown is going to be amazing all the same. Besides, why hype yourself up over Smash and Pokemon when you can just wait and be pleasantly surprised if it happens? It doesn’t seem worth it to us.

But still, what do you think about the announcement? Are you looking forward to the Nintendo Direct tomorrow? What crazy games and reveals do you think Nintendo will make there?

Post your answers to these questions (and more besides) here in the comments or on the Gaming Latest forums today!

Kirby Star Allies: Datamined Demo Leaks Every Boss and Power

Earlier this week, Nintendo released a demo for Kirby Star Allies. Featuring two levels (‘Grassland’ and ‘Castle’), it was meant to be a short preview of the upcoming title, and a way for fans to get a taste of the game prior to its full release on March 16th.

But like many Nintendo made demos, the one for Kirby Star Allies had a small flaw.

Namely, Nintendo didn’t scrub it of any unused content. As a result, dataminers have now found most of the later game content. Such as say, all the bosses you’ll fight in the adventure. Or the various battles you’ll go through in this game’s version of the True Arena.

And while they did at least catch the soundtrack aspect (with most songs from the full game being absent from the demo), having everything else leaked means spoilers are now all over the internet.

Including this very site. So, if you want to stay unspoilt as far as Kirby Star Allies content is concerned, stop reading now. If not… well keep going to find out everything there is to know about this upcoming title!
