Wolfenstein: Youngblood or Wolfenstein III could be coming to Nintendo Switch 2

Wolfenstein: Youngblood has been confirmed for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. But the Switch so far hasn’t gotten any word about a release yet.

But GameSpot recently stated that Bethesda Marketing Executive Pete Hines said that “the next Wolfenstein game” is also coming to the Switch at PAX Aus. Besides Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Bethesda has already said that Wolfenstein III is on the way, but no platforms have been confirmed yet.

Bethesda has been trying to bring all of their new games to the Nintendo Switch if possible, and this could be mean that the Switch will be receiving both Wolfenstein games. Doom Eternal will also be available on the hybrid handheld.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood will release sometime n 2019 and has been confirmed for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC so far. But don’t be surprised to see it on the Switch.

Sega classics are coming to the Nintendo Switch by Summer 2018 under Sega Ages

Sonic is coming to the Switch!

Classic games from SEGA Genesis and Master System will be available for the Nintendo Switch during the Summer of 2018, according to an announcement at Sega Fest 2018.

Fans of the classic Sega games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Thunderforce 4, and more, will all be available on the Switch under the Sega Ages brand. There will be a total of 15 games available including the 3 above.

A company called M2 is behind the move and will be developing the games for emulation for the games. They’re specialists in game emulation for older titles and they’ve been doing this with Sega games for a while now- they ported games onto the Virtual Console on the DS, so they know what they’re doing. The Sega Ages label has been used by Sega since 1996 when they re-released games on their SEGA Saturn console.

As for now, we have no info about the other remaining games. We’ll post an update when we hear word about them.

Firmware version 5.0 rolls out to Nintendo Switch – get features and updates

Update 5.0 has rolled out!

The Nintendo Switch has updated to Firmware version 5.0.

The update has added numerous new improvements to the console and some new features. Friend Suggestions is a notable one, which is an engine that automatically suggests Facebook and Twitter friends by taking data from your social networks linked to your Nintendo Account.

it also adds a whopping two-dozen ARMS and Kirby user icons for you to show off your fandom. And there’s also the ability to filter the news content from specific channels- or even your unread news as well.

With the 5.0 update, all online purchases made by your phone, PC, or tablet will also start downloading a lot quicker than before. This is an awesome new improvement because it’s annoying to download a digital game and have to wait for it. Why not just go buy it in the store instead if you’re going to wait? And you get a notification of pre-purchased games when you’re ready to be played. This is the kind of update that shows Nintendo has been looking at user metrics to improve their firmware. Way better than guessing when a game is ready by checking the status of it. Now you can launch it right away from the dash.

Controllers have also been updated as well. The Controller menu shows the grip colors if you’re using a Pro Controller.

Lastly, the Parental Controls also got removed. The default way to input the PIN uses the control stick rather than the on-screen keypad. Capture videos in the album are also restricted based on the Restricted Software settings and Software Rating Organization. Games can also be added a safe whitelist in order to override these settings.

RollerCoaster Tycoon is coming to the Nintendo Switch

RCT is coming to the Switch!

Atari has started a crowdfunding campaign to bring the classic theme park builder RollerCoaster Tycoon to the Nintendo Switch.

Everyone knows what RCT is. It’s probably one of the best strategy tycoon games of all time. If you haven’t heard of it, you must’ve been detached from the videogame world for quite some time (or you’re new to gaming in general). It was a very addicting game and has consumed many, many hours of my childhood (and millions of others).

The campaign is hosted on StartEngine, which many won’t be familiar with. Atari is looking for $10,000 to $1.07 million. That’s a pretty big range.

The game will be developed by Nvizzio Creation, who also made the F2P RCT Touch version. The version that they’re making shouldn’t have any mobile cash-grab gimmicks like the F2P version does. It should be a fully fleshed-out RCT game for Nintendo Switch.

If you donate to their campaign, you get some perks for this game and future developments as well.

The game is said that it’ll be an original game that’ll utilize the Switch’s portable functionality and home capabilities as well. It’ll also come with exclusive features just for the Switch. Confrimed features include a career mode, sandbox mode, and scenarios. So far, these aren’t anything special as they’ve been available since the beginning of the RCT series.

We’ll have to watch out for this one. It could be the next awesome RollerCoaster Tycoon game.
