With Ash’s story wrapped up, Pokemon: Horizons will keep the anime rolling

Ash’s time in the Pokemon anime has finally come to an end in Japan, and a trailer for the new series, Pokemon Horizons, sets up the adventures to come. We’ve known for a while now that Ash Ketchum, our beloved protagonist who caught barely any Pokemon, would no longer be the protagonist of the Pokemon anime. The final episode of Pokemon Journeys: The Series (the full title of the last season) has aired in Japan, bringing Ash’s story to a close, and likely a teary eye to many who grew up with the world’s best Pokemon trainer. But there’s a…

We played the cheapest games you can buy on Nintendo Switch, but are they any good?

Sorting the trash from the treasure with the cheapest Nintendo Switch bargains, so you don’t have to. While we all love a good bargain, cheap doesn’t always mean cheerful. Sometimes it leads to regret, and wishing you’d bought a couple of Freddo’s with your pennies instead. But there’s also always the chance you’ll stumble onto some real treasure. That’s why we decided to raid the bargain bin end of the Nintendo Switch eShop for the 10 cheapest games we could find to see if taking the risk on low-cost titles is ever worth. We’ve ranked them from worst to best,…

Ahead of the Wii U and 3DS eShops’ closure, YouTube’s most prolific completionist bought every game

Wait ’til you see how much it cost. The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShops are both shutting down at the end of this month, so YouTuber Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil’s solution was to buy them all. Last year, Nintendo made the unfortunate decision to shut down the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShops, and that date is almost upon us. From March 27, you won’t be able to buy any games from either online storefront, though you will be able to download any that you have previously purchased. There’s a whole heap of problems there, one of them being…

Please, Nintendo, let Mario take on more mature genres

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope has reminded us of all the potential out there for the Mario franchise outside well-trodden sports games and safe spinoffs. I find it virtually impossible to get mad at Mario games. The fact they’re pretty good most of the time definitely helps, and even when the franchise is running in circles, the final products never fail to put a smile on my face. Nintendo truly cares about the quality of its most famous IP, and the spinoffs other studios put out. But what about taking risks? That’s a different story altogether. Ever wanted to…

Like it or not, the Smash Bros series wouldn’t be what it is without its most maligned entry

In defense of everyone’s least favourite Super Smash Bros. game. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is painted with much acclaim from critics and fans alike, but one game before it often gets maligned by fans: Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Tripped up by its controversial own tripping feature and bad online implementation at the time of its release, Brawl deserves more praise: it laid the foundations for Ultimate to succeed. 15 years after its release, I am here to tell you why this maligned entry in one of the most sucessful gaming series of all time deserves more respect. The Brawl-to-Sora pipeline…

No confirmation on what the film will be about, though. Detective Pikachu 2, the movie, not the game, might finally be on the way, as a director might finally be attached to the project.

Over 230 familiar Pokemon not present in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be encountered in the DLC

When Nintendo announced the upcoming expansions for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, it confirmed that some familiar Poke friends return – 230 in fact. These Pokemon will appear in Part 1: The Teal Mask and Part 2: The Indigo Disk, none of which have appeared in either game. Nintendo has decided not to provide a list of the returning Pokemon, as it wants you to find out for yourself by playing the game.
