Cyberpunk 2077 is not only going to be one of the most ambitious and technically demanding games released this year, but of the entire generation. It’s shocking to think the ol’ PS4 and Xbox One will be able to even run the game. That said, despite the massive resource demands of the title, Polish developer CD Projekt Red isn’t entirely writing off a Nintendo Switch port.
As you may know, CD Projekt Red did — somehow — bring it’s ambitious and massive 2015 open-world RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, to the Nintendo Switch recently (with the help of Saber Interactive). In other words, if there are video game development wizards out there who could get Cyberpunk 2077 running on the Nintendo Switch, it would be the pair of European developers.
During the Electronic Arts earnings call, management shared an update on the company’s stance on supporting the Nintendo Switch. So far, EA has only released 5 games on Switch, including FIFA 18, FIFA 19, FIFA 20, Unravel Two, and Fe. But looking ahead, can fans expect more releases on Switch.
EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said EA has been “very pleased” with “how well Nintendo has done with the Switch.” Nintendo just recently announced that the Switch has passed 52.48 million units sold, which is a very strong start for the system that launched in 2017.
The executive said EA is “always” discussing ideas with Nintendo for future game support. “As the platform grows, our interest in developing for it grows,” Jorgsensen said.
Jorgensen went on to say that EA has been cautious thus far with supp...
When the Nintendo Wii released back in 2006, the console became an overnight success. While longtime fans flocked to the system for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, casual crowds were all about the console’s pack-in game, Wii Sports. Coupled with system’s controller, better known as the Wii Remote, Wii Sports gained the console a lot of attention. However, not all of that attention was a good thing. iLife Technologies, Inc. filed a lawsuit against Nintendo in 2013, alleging that Nintendo had infringed on their patent. In 2017, a jury ordered Nintendo to pay $10.1 million in damages, but a new federal court ruling has nullified that award.
According to the federal court ruling, iLife’s claim was far too broad...
Metro Redux will expose Nintendo Switch players to Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light on February 28, 2020.
While Metro Exodus for PC, PS4 and Xbox One is all the rage nowadays, a recent PEGI listing unintentionally revealed the existence of a Metro Redux port for Nintendo Switch. While many would expect this announcement to come during something like a Nintendo Direct, 4A Games and Deep Silver decided to unveiled Metro Redux for Nintendo Switch today, confirming that fans will be able to play Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light on the hybrid console next month.
For those of you that haven’t heard of Metro Redux, it is a package containing two remastered Metro games that originally came out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2014...
Firstly, the patch notes say developer Ubisoft is increasing the aim-down-sight time for all weapons, as the current times are a little too quick thanks to a previous animation overhaul. Every weapon in the game will see its ADS time increase by 0.05 to 0.25 seconds, depending on what type it is.
Maestro’s nerf is also significant: Ubisoft is removing the ACOG scope from his ALDA LMG. The developer says: “We think the ALDA is powerful even without the ACOG and want to see if it’s removal will highlight its other great qualities.” Jager is another operator to be nerfed; his 416-C assault rifle sees its damage reduced from 43 to 38, as it currently “outperforms all other guns on defence”.
On the other hand, lots of operators are being buffed in the new update...
As spotted by LetsGoDigital, Nintendo of America has filed a new trademark application for Mario & Luigi in South America.
According to the application’s description, the Mario & Luigi trademark will be related to “computer game cartridges; game memory cards; computer game software; video game memory cards; interactive entertainment software to play video games; covers for mobile phones”.
Of course, it’s possible Nintendo is just trying to keep a tight grip on its own IP. But the timing of things is of interest. Mario & Luigi’s original developer AlphaDream filed for bankruptcy late last year following poor sales of its 3DS release Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story + Bowser Jr.’s Journey.

There are basically three different Nintendo Switch models at this point: the original production model, the updated model, and the Nintendo Switch Lite. The difference between the three is largely battery life expectations, with the Nintendo Switch Lite being a handheld-only device with built-in controllers. But if a new report is to be believed, there will be at least one more Nintendo Switch model in the mix by the end of this year.
According to the Taiwanese website DigiTimes, Nintendo is reportedly set to introduce a new model of Switch in mid-2020 with volume production set to begin at the end of Q1 2020. DigiTimes attributes this information to sources in the supply stream for the upcoming devices...
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is being decompiled, opening the door to multiplayer mods, PC ports, and uncovering hidden secrets.
It seems almost inconceivable that over two-decades since launch there is a subsection of gamers still uncovering the mysteries of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Yet, the modding and coding community are taking on a fairly massive project to do just that: decompile the code from the original N64 ROM of Ocarina of Time. The hope is this will not only unravel some unanswered questions about the game, but also open up the possibility of mods and ports to the Nintendo 64 classic.
So let’s back up a second — what’s decompiling, and aren’t there already mods and PC ports of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time...
Enter the Gungeon continues to rake in sales and, to celebrate, developer Dodge Roll Games has two release window announcements for all your Gunheads.
Developer Dodge Roll Games is having quite the Tuesday. The team took to Twitter today to announce a boatload of new information. Most notably, they revealed that their hit roguelike Enter the Gungeon has now surpassed three million copies sold. Those are big numbers for a relatively small team. However, that was far from the only thing Dodge Roll revealed.
Exit the Gungeon originally launched exclusively with Apple Arcade in October 2019. The spin-off plays somewhat similarly to Enter the Gungeon except that you are now traversing up platforms to get back out of the Gungeon...
