Animal Crossing Switch

No more rumors — Animal Crossing is coming to the Switch.

After gutting disappointments at E3 2018 and subsequent Nintendo Directs, Nintendo has finally confirmed that Animal Crossing Switch is gearing up for a 2019 launch.

Details are pretty scant — all we got is “Animal Crossing” for a title — but we can expect Tom Nook to return and, hopefully, at least a visit from all, if not most, of the other characters when you use their Amiibo figure.

Watch the announcement trailer, and let us know what you hope to see in Animal Crossing Switch…

This Is Mortal Kombat 11’s Official Cover, What Do You Think?

Mortal Kombat 11 official Cover art with Scorpion

It’s familiar, but different; simpler, but engaging.

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has revealed the official cover art for Mortal Kombat 11, and its of little surprise that it only features Scorpion.

Compared to Mortal Kombat 10, the overall design is brighter and simpler, featuring a yellow, hot background that surprisingly works well with Scorpion’s yellow outfit.

Scorpion’s pose is imposing, and its interesting that NetherRealm chose go with the more modern version of the character rather than the classic one that appeared in the reveal trailer.

Mortal Kombat 11 releases on April 23, 2019 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.

What do you think about the cover art? Better yet, what’s you favorite Mortal Kombat cover art of all time? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Epic Games Store New Return Policy Allows Unlimited Refunds, But…

Published

on

Epic Games Store logo

Gamers get more leniency and a simplified verification process.

Epic has updated the Epic Games Store’s return policy to make it more competitive with other digital storefronts.

With the old policy, you were allowed just two refunds per year, but now everyone has unlimited refunds within 14 days of purchase and with under two hours played.

The Epic Games Store doesn’t have a “self-service” solution, at least not yet, so you will have to go through Customer Support to request a refund.

A change was also made to the verification process for receiving a refund. Customers no longer have to provide their IP address, last four digits of the card used, account creation date, and other information if the return meets the set criteria, though a contact form will still need to be used.

Epic plans to add more regional pricing options to the store. There are currently 30 different regions available, encompassing a total of 130 countries.

Nintendo has added two additional NES games to Switch Online.

Switch Online subscribers can now download and play Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link and Blaster Master, two classics that will surely make some old school gamers feel nostalgic. They join previous NES releases Super Mario Bros. 3, Ninja Gaiden, Excitebike, and many others.

In Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link, our hero Link returns to Hyrule to search for the Triforce and to awaken Zelda from an endless sleep. You embark on a quest to find the Triforce of Courage and save Hyrule from ruin, learning magic spells, talking to people in towns to get clues, collecting items to increase your power and exploring six palaces invested with
Ganon’s underlings.

Originally released in 1988, Blaster Master is a run and gun platformer that has you blast through an endless maze of tunnels, seeking secret passages for an escape. You’re tasked with destroying the Plutonium Boss and his mutant cronies before these they destroy the earth.

You can try out Nintendo’s Switch Online seven days free. If you decide to stick with it after the trial period, you’ll have the choice of three pricing tiers for membership: $3.99 per month, $7.99 for three months, or $19.99 per year.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Was The Best-Selling Video Game On Amazon In 2018

Published

A late release didn’t stop Nintendo’s platform fighting game from reaching the top.

Despite releasing on December 7, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate was number one on Amazon’s list of 100 best-selling video game items in 2018.

The simple list charts the most popular video games and game-related products sold on Amazon in the US, including traditional games, though it’s rare to see those at the top spot.

You’re not too late to the party. Grab your copy of the game here.

In fact, Nintendo dominated the top ten, with the basic Switch bundle claiming the sixth spot, and the Switch Pro Controller coming in at eighth.

At number four, Amfilm’s Nintendo Switch Tempered Glass Screen Protector proved more popular than all other games sold on Amazon in 2018, save of course for Smash.

Keep in mind that Amazon’s list only takes into account single SKUs, so the total number of copies sold for multi-platform games like Red Dead Redemption 2 or Black Ops 4 may be higher overall than Smash.

Speaking of platforms, the digital gift cards for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live also fared well, but it’s only once you step out of the top 10 do you see 2018’s other blockbuster releases like the PS4’s Red Dead Redemption 2 (# 14), Spider-Man (# 19), Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (# 27), and God of War (# 28).

You can marvel at the full list on Amazon.
