Nintendo Weekly Roundup: A Pokémon Game Appeared!

‘Pokémon Sword and Shield’ Coming To Nintendo Switch

We’ve known for a while now that a new Pokémon game was in development for the Nintendo Switch and, finally, it has been officially revealed. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be hitting stores in later this year.  Below is a trailer that was released on Wednesday:

The trailer features some classic turn-based Pokémon gameplay, which include returning Pokémon like Pikachu and Lucario. As well, the game demonstrates the wide variety of environments players will traverse in-game. From snowy plains to more urbanized areas, and forests to grass fields, Sword and Shield seek to diversify the land players must adventure through within the brand new Galar region

As is ritual with many Pokémon games, players will get to choose from three starter Pokémon. The trailer above shows Scorbunny as a possible starter, a who seems to be a Fire type. Additionally, the trailer presents Sobble, who appears to be a Water type Pokémon. Finally, there is Grookey, who is presumably a Grass type Pokémon.

As mentioned previously, the games will be hitting store shelves, digital and otherwise, in late 2019.

The Nintendo Switch will soon get three Resident Evil gamesThree ‘Resident Evil’ Titles Creep Onto Switch

Initially announced to be coming to Switch last October, the Resident Evil remake, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will be hitting the Switch very shortly. As Polygon reports, Capcom will be releasing the three games onto the eShop on May 21. Resident Evil 0 and the remaster of the Resident Evil remake, Resident Evil HD, will be paired together in a physical package for Switch. The collection will be called Resident Evil Origins Collection.

Previously, Resident Evil 4Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil HD had been released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the latter two being released in bundles later on as well. In terms of pricing, Nintendo’s Game Store indicates that each game will cost $29.99 USD, and Eurogamer reports that each title will run at £29.99.

For our review of Capcom’s recent Resident Evil 2 remake, go ahead and head here.

Walmart Slashes Prices For Some Of The Best Switch Games

As GameSpot reports, some of the best games on the Nintendo Switch games are up to 67% off at the moment. Since first-party Switch games rarely go on sale, now is your chance to go and indulge a bit with some of the Switch’s best games. Discounted games include:

With these titles and more on sale, Switch owners would be wise to take advantage of this sale. Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are revered as two of the Switch’s best games. Moreover, Breath of the Wild received acclaim even to the extent of Game of the Year among many outlets, while Super Mario Odyssey is regarded as one of the best Mario games in years. Suffice it to say, Nintendo has been hitting it out of the park.

Also, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is one of the best surprises the Switch has to offer. At a $40 discount, any Switch owner ready for a challenge should at least look into this title.

Digital Reader App Izneo Now On Switch

Izneo, a digital platform for comic books and graphics novels, is now on the Nintendo Switch, as Variety reports. As a major source for comics and graphic novels in Europe, it is currently offering a plethora of content from publishers like Archie and Dark Horse. CEO Luc Bourcier told Variety that it would have gone up last autumn, though technical issues caused a delay in its release until February 28.

The following trailer comes from Izneo’s YouTube channel:

Equipped with over 30,000 mangas, graphic novels, comics, and other content, Izneo has quite a bit to offer. Moreover, it does so in both handheld mode and docked mode.

Explaining to Variety that he’s aware “readers like to be able to consume digital content on the go,” Bourcier notes of Izneo that “part of our belief is that all these things that we consider to be different – Japanese manga, European graphic novels, even American superhero comic books – are actually the same thing, just rooted in different cultures.”

Currently one of the forerunners of the Switch’s array of third-party subscription services, one subscription costs $7.99 a month.

This Week’s Releases

With a bevy of new releases, including ports and brand new games, to look forward to for Nintendo’s hybrid console, gamers have much to be excited for in 2019. As we inch closer to those titles, gamers still have much to sink their teeth into. For example, on February 28, DELTARUNE Chapter 1 had been released. A successor, if not direct sequel, to the quirky Undertale, the game exhibits many of the same qualities, sharing its odd writing and fourth wall-breaking. It is currently free on the eShop. You can buy Undertale on the eShop for $14.99 USD.

Many have been discussing the release of Ape Out for Nintendo Switch. The discussion appears to be justified. Its trailer illustrates it as being a colorful “smash ’em up” with vibrant, stylized visuals and a catchy soundtrack. It runs at a price of $14.99 USD on the eShop.

Last week, we noted that Trials Rising Open Beta was available on Switch for free. Now, the full game is out, as Trials Rising Standard Edition is available on the eShop for $24.99 USD. Typically, the series has always been a fun racing/platformer hybrid, as noted in the new release’s description, so it may be worth checking out for Switch owners not familiar with the franchise.

As always, you can find these and more on the Nintendo Game Store.
