    Someone on Reddit was reporting BOTW Link in the Smash Bros promo prompting their thought that its not a port but a sequel/new game.

    Switch firmware version 5.0 has been released, and the bug from last week which seemed to erase play time data for games in our library has been fixed.

    So breathe a sigh of relief as our Zelda histories show ridiculous hours again.

    There are other features too but this was the most important one.

    Oh, and there's another important one in which the controllers screen in the system menu now shows coloured Pro Controller icons to match coloured controllers, like the Splatoon one.

    Nintendo has announced about 20 new games today as part of their Nindies showcase which you’ll find on YouTube.

    Most importantly, Hyper Light Drifter is coming to Switch. This makes me so happy that I’m ready to pretty much suck the knob right off the person who made this happen. Game Maker, the engine that HLD runs on, was ported to Switch a few weeks ago, so we might see more games in the pipeline. I’m hoping for Hotline Miami, personally.

    Nidhogg was announced as well. It’s a funny little slapstick sword waggling multiplayer game. There’s heaps more, expertly cut & pasted below:

    Mark of the Ninja Remastered - fall
    Fantasy Strike - summer
    Just Shapes and Beats - summer, first on Switch
    Garage - spring, first on Switch
    Pool Panic - 2018, exclusive to Switch
    Bomb Chicken - summer, first on Switch
    Lumines Remastered - spring
    Reigns: Kings and Queens - spring
    Lightfall - spring, first on Switch
    West of Loathing - spring, console exclusive to Switch
    Pode - spring
    The Messenger - summer
    Bad North - summer, first on Switch
    Banner Saga 1 and 2 - "soon"
    Banner Saga 3 - summer

    In July Hori is releasing a fully licensed 3rd party left JoyCon with a proper d-pad for retro gaming and fighting games.

    It’s designed to be used only in handheld mode while connected to the console, with no wireless, no rumble, no NFC, no gyro/acceleration, and no SL/SR buttons. It’ll be something like half the price of a regular official JoyCon.

    I'm tempted, but I might hold out for a fully featured one.

    Not in a rush until virtual console* games come out.

    *Or whatever they call classic games this time around

    Gooooooood news:

    https://www.vooks.net/sega-ages-anno...star-and-more/

    …which is either a) a good accompaniment to all of those NEO GEO classics that you see on the Switch eShop, or b) Sega getting annoyed with waiting for the Virtual Console to open up and going it alone.

    Either way, original Sonic the Hedgehog, Thunder Force IV and Phantasy Star emulated on Switch. Possibly the grown-up consoles as well but who cares because everyone wants everything on Switch and this is the best news EV4R!

    It's funny going back and looking at this, questioning what Nintendo might do and then, when the actual idea and details leaked, being highly doubtful of its potential success. I remember seeing that they wanted to be prepared to manufacture 20 million in the first year and thought that they were insane.

    Turns out they sold about 18 million in the first year.
