Snipperclips is now a Nintendo Switch launch title

It seems as though Nintendo is responding to the criticism that its launch line-up for the Nintendo Switch is a little bare. There’s only a handful of games that will be available and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is really the only heavy-hitter to move units. Today Nintendo has announced that it’s newest puzzle game Snipperclips will be a launch title with the Nintendo Switch on March 3rd. You can download the game for $19.99 from the Nintendo eShop, or check out a free demo that will be available. Eurogamer also mentioned that the game will be included as a digital download in a box with extra Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con controllers, but there’s no price yet available for it. When the game was first showcased, it was only given a vague March release date. Check out the trailer above and let us know if you’re interested in Snipperclips! READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

Nintendo Switch has an aggressive sleep mode to conserve battery

We’ve seen some early reports about the Nintendo Switch’s purported battery life, but this preview from Ars Technica UK contains a really interesting piece of information. The author of the piece seems to confirm that the Switch unit will last about three hours of play time with Breath of the Wild.He also mentioned that the included AC adapter for the Nintendo Switch will recharge the unit at a rate of about 1% per minute when the system is in sleep mode. What’s really interesting is that this sleep mode seems to be pretty aggressive, as the reviewer says that upon spending eight hours in the dock, his fully charged Switch had only lost 2% of its battery life, down to 98%.Another concerning thing in this preview is that the “universal” compatibility of the USB-C charger that Nintendo went with may not be so universal after all. While attempting to see how fast a third-party USB-C charger could charge the Switch, this previewer determined that it only charged at a rate of about 1% every six minutes. In fact, the charge was so slow that the Switch died while plugged into this charger.For those hoping to use any USB-C charger that…

The Best Landmarks of Super Mario Odyssey’s New Donk City

The Nintendo Switch is almost here! We already have ours, and soon you’ll be able to buy yours. Soon you’ll be able to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which seems pretty magnificent so far. But if your Nintendo kingdom preference leans more Mushroom than Hyrule, don’t worry. Super Mario Odyssey, the upcoming 3D Mario game hitting Switch this holiday, also looks weird and wonderful. By far the most delightful and confusing thing about Super Mario Odyssey so far is New Donk City, an area in the game modeled after New York City in which the cartoon-like Mario interacts with real people. This revelation raises so many questions. Who are these people? What is Mario if not a human being. How does Donkey Kong lore tie into this? How overpriced are New Donk apartments? Since Geek.com’s office is in New York City, we thought it be fun to imagine what the rest of New Donk City might look like if it really is taking most of its inspiration from the Big Apple. Hopefully, we’ll be visiting these places soon on our Nintendo Switch. These are the best landmarks of Super Mario Odyssey’s New Donk City, courtesy of Geek.com…

Early Impressions Of The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

No mini-map? Just health hearts and a stamina gauge when The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to the “pro” heads-up display option. My emotional journey over my first four hours of playing the new Zelda: liked it, grew skeptical of it, doubted it, regained appreciation, now hooked on it. Advertisement If you love the Zelda formula you may take this same ride when you start playing The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, which comes out for Wii U and Nintendo Switch next week. I’ve only played a paltry bit of this gargantuan game, so I cannot tell you how that journey may end. I liked it when I sampled it on the Wii U under time pressure last June at E3 and was quickly pleased again when I booted it on my Switch a few days ago. It is a game of immediate action. You wake in a cave as Link, asleep for 100 years and amnesiac. You grab some clothes, go outside and have an axe in your hand in about three minutes.

Early Impressions Of My Very Own Nintendo Switch

I carry the thing around in a big wool sock and finally had the nerve to play it on the beleaguered C train this morning, fearful someone would try to snatch it. Advertisement This is Nintendo’s new console, the Switch, and I’ve had it since Tuesday evening. Not much time, really, so what can I say? I can say that it’s small. Small enough to fit into a large wool sock that now serves as the console’s carrying case and screen protector. The Switch is the tiniest console I’ve had, skinnier than a Wii, the previous lightweight leader. But this tiny console enables me to play the most advanced-looking Zelda game ever made on the C train and also as I lay on my bed while my newborns are asleep in another room (I play with headphones, and we’ve got a night nurse, so no child neglect there). Advertisement It’s a marvel, this little machine, though I already feel ridiculous tossing it and my 3DS in my bag. Nintendo swears the Switch isn’t going to replace the 3DS. I’m skeptical.
