Since it's a fighting game and there won't be a big jump graphically it doesn't make as much sense to make a new game from the ground up. I'd be ok with a Smash Season 2 kind of deal.

Another great Smash trailer, it's the perfect length for a teaser and the sound design is amazing. Smash is a master at hyping up it's fan base.

Love this game, would recommend it to anyone who missed it the first time round.

Whoa nice, not sure what to expect but looking forward to it.

Also 3DS has some life in it yet apparently.

Xenoblade 2 is the best selling in the series so it makes sense, and X has the underdog factor. X is probably the most ambitious and interesting of the three, even if everything it tries isn't perfectly executed.

I honestly don't know which is my favourite, Xenoblade 1 is an absolute classic, amazing story & execution, whereas Xenobalde X is more ambitious, probably the best game featuring mechs ever made. I've not finished Xenobalde 2 yet so the jury is still out, the battle system has upsides and downsides over the other style of Xenobalde combat in 1 & X. The annoying quality of life stuff in 2 probably nudges 1 above it.

Super creative and something that's only possible on the switch. It's a novelty item to be sure and I don't expect the cardboard to last very long, but to be fair it's only a cute April side project, it's not like they're betting the farm on it.

This is really intriguing, at first I thought it was alluding to a theme park or movie but it specifies "Nintendo Switch" so it's either some piece of software or hardware. Why are they hyping this up?! It must be something big or else why would they purposely set expectations so high?

James Jones really sold this to me on the RFN podcast a while ago and now I have an excuse to finally buy it. Exploring a town in managed decline is such an interesting concept for a game.

I wonder how it will handle the non-touch screen controls.

I feel like this would have worked better on the Wii U than the Switch, obviously it's too late for that now and I'm never the less hyped to play more rpgs on the switch.

Really didn't see this coming, but absolutely looking forward to it.

Hurray!!! Always love the telethon, and I'm in a position to donate this year.

Niiiiice, the trailer didn't show anything especially noteworthy or new in terms of the world, but it's still early days. I expect the battle system to be world class as always though.

Yeah I also want to give a shout out to the work that goes into the weekly downloads, even if I have a week where my time for playing games is limited, I always make time to check the weekly downloads. It's reliable and gets you all the information you need in one place.

I believe the main issue is that in some games you can pour loads of money into something and still potentially not get what you want, if it's only using in game currency I don't see the problem, but once you introduce the ability to pay with real money it starts to get messed up. You've seen the YouTube video titled "OPENING 100 PACKS, SUPER RARES!?!" You've seen the news articles about children who spend thousands on their parents credit card buying packs. If there is no limit like on some of Nintendo's games like Pokemon Rumble World, then these kind of things will keep happening. It's addictive and at least they should have to disclose odds. Any game where the business model is whaling, where you can spend a limitless amount of money on it, there should be a tag on the download screen or box that explains it like violence or sexual themes, and it should be a factor in considering a game's rating.

Zelda, Mario and Xenoblade is a winning combination, so far Zelda has been incredible so I'd have to agree with you Khush.

This is a really great demo, I've only played the Bravely Default 2 demo but you can recognise the Bravely Default DNA right away with things like the UI. The brave/default system in the 3DS demo seemed pretty pointless to me, it felt like a zero sum game or maybe giving me too much choice is a better way to put it but Octopath gets rid of defaults which seemed from the 3DS demo to just slow down the game, instead Octopath gives enemies a shield you can break by hitting their weak point a certain number of times. Then you have a window of opportunity where the enemy can't act and you do extra damage. It's already clicking with me more than Bravely Default.

Plus the music is incredible, and the game's story seems varied and not full of RPG cliches as you have the eight different stories to choose from.

Xenoblade 2 release date here we come, fingers crossed!

I'm also saying this is the last chance for Detective Pikachu, after this it's likely never coming.

What about Super Mario Maker?

I also want to throw my hat into the ring for Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, never got round to playing it but I heard great things.

I guess Snake Pass will be my second Switch game, I also live close by to the road "Snake Pass" near Sheffield where the studio is based, which is presumably where the game gets it's name. So hooray for supporting my local economy.

Damn Star Fox 2! Just the fact they've got Star Fox and Yoshi's Island is cool but Star Fox 2 is crazy.
