Nyko used to make awesome accessories, what happened?

Ask any gamer who their favorite third-party gaming peripheral manufacturer is and you’ll probably here some variation of Nyko or HORI. Mad Catz is going the way of the Dodo, which means the space for console accessories is getting that much smaller. What’s even more unfortunate is that Nyko seems to be making several missteps with their products, especially those aimed at Nintendo Switch owners.I got an email today from Nyko’s PR letting me know that a new power adapter for the Nintendo Switch is available. Cool, I thought as I clicked the email to check out the specs. So Nyko is charging $16 for this thing on Amazon and it’s only capable of putting out 2.4 amps of power. That’s barely enough to charge the Nintendo Switch and it’s certainly not enough to power the Switch dock.The original Switch charger that comes with the console powers the console at 3 amps and is a USB-C to USB-C cable. Since this accessory from Nyko is a USB-C to USB-A charger, you’re not getting the best charging performance. In fact, you’d do better to buy a third-party cable like this RAVPower USB-C cable and using it with a USB-C brick from…

Steamworld Dig 2 devs discuss the power of the Switch

Image & Form have been firmly in the Nindie corner since the launch of the original Steamworld Dig on Nintendo 3DS. While their games have ventured to other platforms since, Steamworld Dig 2 is launching this summer on the Switch. Nintendo UK recently sat down with the devs to discuss the upcoming game and they gave some interesting answers to some of the questions. Here’s a few snippets below. NUK: So what attracted you to develop SteamWorld Dig 2 on Nintendo Switch? JG: One big reason is that we have a great relationship with Nintendo. We’ve been supporting them for the past few years and vice versa. It’s mutual. Also, we love their stuff. Many of us play Nintendo primarily, so we’re huge fans, and just getting to work with unannounced hardware was reason enough. The core concept is so intriguing. I play most games on my handhelds and enjoy my home consoles. But having a console on the go that I can also play on my TV is a dream come true. NUK: And how have the capabilities of Nintendo Switch helped you improve the sequel? JG: The first SteamWorld Dig was made for Nintendo READ FULL STORY AT…

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: The Kotaku Review

Mario Kart 8 is an excellent game. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is even better. Advertisement Normally in a situation where a game we’ve reviewed in the past gets an updated version on a new console, we’d simply republish the original review with some notes on any significant differences. The Mario Kart 8 situation is a little different. The original came out on the Nintendo Wii U, a console that tried real hard but was never really a huge mainstream success. Conversely, Nintendo is calling the Switch its fastest selling console ever, with more than 2.5 million sold worldwide in under a month. There’s a whole new audience flocking to Nintendo’s new hybrid console, and they’re going to need a racing game to play once they’re finished with all of that Zelda. This is that game. So welcome, newcomers. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the latest installment of Nintendo’s long-running series of kart racing games, in which colorful characters from across several different Nintendo properties race through fantastical Nintendo-themed tracks. Winning requires a combination of racing skill and luck, as random power-ups sprinkled throughout the tracks bestow powers and weapons to help READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
