Nintendo wii u vs switch
Nintendo Switch owners have a big decision to make as soon as the console and all of its accessories come out of the box: What Nintendo Switch Controller will you use? By default, the Switch ships with a controller called the Nintendo Joy-Con. It's actually two controllers, and they work together to behave as a single controller when connected to a special dock or on the sides of the console. If you think that sounds a little unusual and potentially uncomfortable, you aren't alone. New Nintendo controllers are often looked at as kind of awkward at first but historically have become quite popular as they get used. Not everyone adapts to new controller formats, though, which is why Nintendo also has the Pro Controller. Like its predecessors, the Switch Pro Controller exists as an alternative that feels a little more like a traditional gamepad. So, which Nintendo Switch Controller are you going to want when it's time to get your Switch on? Let's take a look! Double your Joy Looking past … [Read more...] about Joy-Con vs. Pro Controller: Which Nintendo Switch controller is best?
A new Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year. Well, possibly new, possibly an expanded port of the Wii U Super Smash Bros. games. No one knows yet, but considering the Inklings of Splatoon staring up at the big burning logo of the game it’s likely there will be some new characters in it regardless. So it’s time for speculation! Instead of dumping out all of the characters we want to see in the next Smash, let’s take a look at Women’s History Month since we’re right in the middle of it and come up with specifically female characters that can be added to the roster. The series already has some strong lady fighters like Samus Aran and Princess Zelda, but there are plenty more who would work well in a Smash game. Princess Zelda is great in most of her forms, from ninja Sheik in Ocarina to the pirate queen Tetra in Wind Waker to the iron lady in Twilight Princess. Her protector/nursemaid Impa has … [Read more...] about 10 Female Fighters Who Should Be In The Switch Super Smash Bros.
Update: The series creator of Super Smash Bros, Masahiro Sakurai, has confirmed that he is working on the newly announced Nintendo Switch title.Sakurai said in a tweet (via Siliconera) that he's been "quietly working on it day after day" asking for fans to "please wait until we can reveal its content, or until the time of its release!!"Sakurai's involvement is unsurprising but promising given that he's been involved with every other Super Smash Bros release. Fighting games haven’t really ever gone out of fashion – just look at how well Street Fighter 5, Tekken 7, Injustice 2 and Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite have performed recently for proof of that. However, for all their success not one of them has felt quite as timeless as Super Smash Bros.A fighting game with Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach? If you’re not a fan of the series (yet) then it’s a pretty barmy idea at first glance, but spend a few rounds brawling your way through a four-player showdown and … [Read more...] about Super Smash Bros Switch release date, trailer and news
Get rid of your CRT television sets, pack up your GameCube controllers, and throw away your Wii U, because Super Smash Bros. is coming to Nintendo Switch. And this time, Mario and company are bringing along a few extra-inky friends. During the latest Nintendo Direct event, the company revealed the game with a short teaser video. We see male and female Inklings from the Splatoon series firing their blasters at each other all while they dash into the ink and use their special weapons. The room then goes dark and the classic Smash Bros. logo descends, with Mario and Link briefly visible. Link’s appearance, as expected, is based on his look from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He doesn’t appear to be wearing a hat, but he still has his trusty bow so he can annoy newer players. At the moment, the new entry in the series is just called Super Smash Bros. It’s a working title, but seeing as the Wii U and 3DS games didn’t use creative subtitles, we would be … [Read more...] about ‘Super Smash Bros.’ is coming to Nintendo Switch with the Inklings in tow
