Just a heads up, while Pokemon fans are preparing for the upcoming New Pokemon Snap which will be out on April 30th, 2021 on Switch, fans will be getting a lot more Pokemon content this year.
Diamond and Pearl Remake
Making their debut in 2006, Pokemon fans got the chance to play the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl on the Nintendo DS. In case you either missed this game or missed out on playing in the Sinnoh Region, fans will be able to relieve this world on the Nintendo Switch. Announced last week, Nintendo annouced the news that the fourth generation of Pokemon will be brought back and made in 3D in this Diamond and Pearl reboot. These reboot games will be titled Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl. No release date yet, but these reboots will be released later this year in 2021.
Pokemon Legends Arceus
If Diamond and Pearl wasn’t enough for you, Nintendo has another exciting game for Sinnoh fans. Announced on the same day, Nintendo announced a brand new Pokemon game called Pokemon Legends Arceus. In a trailer, fans will be able to explore the Sinnoh region in a huge, open world game set in a feudal Japan era. However, unlike Diamond and Pearl, the character designs will be based on Japanese themes and the starter Pokemon will be Rowlet, Oshawott and Cyndaquil. Based on the ending of the trailer, fans can expect an encounter with the legendary divine Pokemon Arceus. Pokemon Legends Arceus is expected to be launched in 2022 for Nintendo Switch.

Do you remember playing the first Xenoblade game on the Wii U? Did you miss out on playing Tokyo Mirage Session? Have no fear, you don’t need a Wii U for these games because they are coming to Switch!
Have you played as Shulk and you don’t know what game is he from? He’s not from Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy, it’s from Nintendo’s JRPG game Xenoblade. Xenoblade originally came out for Nintendo Wii U for Japan 2010 and in NA 2012. Players, old and new fans, can experience the adventures with Shulk in Xenoblade 1: Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch on 2020.

In this game, you fight off against these evil mirage spirits with the power of fighting and music and you will also be working with Fire Emblem characters such as Chrom and Caeda. You can pre-purchase this game and the game will be out on January 17, 2020.
Gamers, get your Switch because Super Smash Bros Ultimate is going to get epic! Masahiro Sakurai, the game director behind Super Smash Bros Ultimate made some announcements in the recent Nintendo Direct. Today is the official release of the announced character Banjo and Kazooie. Banjo and Kazooie is owned by game company Rare but they are also owned by Microsoft and their first game was released in the Nintendo 64 in 1998. Not only that these two characters are in this game, but players will also be able to play in the iconic world Spiral Mountain.
It isn’t Banjo & Kazooie without Spiral Mountain! Spiral Mountain is the stage that comes with the duo. Sometimes a rotation icon will appear, causing it to spin, a very unique concept for #SmashBrosUltimate. A bridge might appear as well, and it leads to Gruntilda’s Lair! pic.twitter.com/S2Y0vpGKv2
Keep an eye out for guest characters in the background and have fun with the final smash!
Banjo-Kazooie characters like Gruntilda, Bottles, Mumbo Jumbo, and even Tooty make some special guest appearances in the #SmashBrosUltimate Spiral Mountain stage. Look around and you’ll even find the Jinjos! Gruntilda is very cruel, so watch out! pic.twitter.com/vRE4Ag3CWB
The Banjo & Kazooie Final Smash is The Mighty Jinjonator, also known as the move that delivered the final blow to Gruntilda in their original game. It sends opponents flying with all their might! #SmashBrosUltimatepic.twitter.com/BiDTToJyO1
This isn’t the only news I have. Also announced on the same day, it’s been confirmed that Fatal Fury fighter Terry Bogard will be joining this game as the fourth DLC character and he is expected to be released in November.
Even though these characters are not DLC, you can at least make then with your Miis. It’s been announced that Super Smash Bros will be adding customize-able outfits for your Miis. You can dress your Miis as Zero from Mega Man, Team Rocket trainers, Mystic Ninja and Sans from Undertale.
There is also going to be a major update to Ultimate called Vers. 5.0.0. In this update, players can customize the Mii Fighters special moves. Coming back from the Melee, players will also be able to play Home Run Contest. In this mode, you or with a friend can work together to do damage to a sandbag and launch them across the field to break records.
Alongside Ver. 5.0, a new mode is coming to #SmashBrosUltimate! Damage the Sandbag in front of you as much as possible, take the bat, strike and let it fly. Home Run Contest is making its return! Two people can play together, so be sure to grab a friend and enjoy! pic.twitter.com/MDWjLpZyvE
Last but definitely not least, Sakurai made a comment that he does plan to bring in more fighters aside from the Fighters Pass. So if you are still asking for characters like Sora, Dante, Shantae, Master Chief or Mai Shiranui, don’t give up! There might be a chance for these characters to show up.
The battle isn’t over yet, even more #SmashBrosUltimate fighters are on the way! Beyond the 5 fighters included in the Fighters Pass, we can confirm that the development of additional fighters will continue! pic.twitter.com/AiEtDzyTll
Hello everyone! I hope you saw the Nintendo Direct news because I got some awesome news to share with you. You might even want to consider buying a Switch instead of a PS4 or X1.
Some of you guys already know this but just in case, people who bought the Nintendo Switch Online Membership will be able to play games online, have access to cloud storage and be able to play free classic NES games. A year membership is about $20 but you can try a free trial for about 7 days. Anyway, people who have the membership will be getting something even grand as the NES games. It’s been confirmed by Nintendo that there are plans of bringing the SNES games! For now, only 20 will be available:
Super Mario World™
Super Mario World™ 2: Yoshi’s Island™
Super Mario Kart™
The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
Stunt Race FX™
Kirby’s Dream Land™ 3
Kirby’s Dream Course™
Super Ghouls’n Ghosts™
Super Puyo Puyo 2
Breath Of Fire
SUPER E.D.F. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE
Joe & Mac 2: Lost in the Tropics
It’s also announced that there is plans to buy an SNES controller for your Switch. Get ready to relieve the classics!
Think back when you were you were little and you used to play classic licensed games like Disney games on your SNES or Sega Genesis. Here you are an adult and what if I told you that you can play these games again in your modern consoles. It’s been announced yesterday that Disney is planning to release a game collection in which it will have three different game versions of Aladdin and The Lion King including a never before played demo of an Aladdin game; the total games in this collection is seven. This game collection is called Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King. According to IGN, here is what we’re getting:
Disney’s Aladdin (Sega Genesis)
Disney’s Aladdin (Game Boy)
Disney’s Aladdin (Final Cut)
Disney’s Aladdin (Trade Show)
Disney’s The Lion King (Sega Genesis)
Disney’s The Lion King (SNES)
Disney’s The Lion King (Game Boy/Super Game Boy)
Based on the trailer, players will be able to play the game with enhance graphics and the ability to jump into any moment in the game. You will also be able to rewind time in order to correct yourself if you make a mistake while playing. Unfortunately this game, as far as I know, will not have the SNES version of Aladdin. My guess is that this game was once licensed by Capcom and now Capcom doesn’t have the rights for the game anymore. It’s pretty common for Capcom because they usually lose the rights to a game. This happened before with the Ducktales Remastered and Marvel vs Capcom Origins. The SNES Aladdin game was designed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.
This game will be released for a price of $29.99 for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. It set to be released in the Fall 2019.
If you have been a fan of both Mario and Sonic games, you might have played at least one game of the Mario and Sonic Olympic Games.

Depending where you live, this game is coming out on November 2019. In North America, it’s November 5th and in Europe it’s November 8th for Nintendo Switch. Revealed in a recent trailer, you can play as your favorite character and event as retro sprites. You can play as classic Sonic and Mario and change the world in a pixel like world. Which side are you on?
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 takes the series to a new dimension with 10 classic 2D events. The game releases Nov. 5 in the Americas & Nov. 8 in Europe!
Hello gamers! If you been thinking about getting the Nintendo Switch, but you want to get it for an affordable price, Nintendo may have the answers you are looking for.

The price on the Lite version will be around $199 and it will have three different colors and an upcoming Pokemon version for the game Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.
