Gamefreak has registered a trademark for “Ultra Shiny”, leading many fans to believe a new gimmick may be entering the wonderful world of Pokemon.
This supposed photo of the trademark was posted by twitter user @pokexperto on April 20th, and it does in fact translate to “Ultra Shiny”. However, the validity of the photo remains to be seen.
This coincides with recent rumours that the newest Pokemon game for Switch will be announced soon for a November release. These rumours, which seem to stem from Nintendo Life, claimed that information about this 8th generation series of games would be announced shortly.
These rumours stemmed from twitter user @pixelpar, who claims to have inside information on the game. The user claims the games are being referred to internally as “Project Beluga”.
@pixelpar had earlier tweeted “For anyone wondering, Pokémon Switch materials have been undergoing localization since late Feb (possibly earlier). I’ve already had confirmation that it’s targeting a 2018 release. Educated guess (based on previous Pokémon localization timing) it should be ready for Nov/Dec” on the 13th of April.
They later followed up these tweets with the following on the 18th:
The Way Remastered is, you guess it, a remastered version of the 2016 PC game The Way. The game is best described as a puzzle/platformer, usually requiring the player to explore specific, unique areas to progress. There’s a lot to experience in this title if that sounds like your cup of tea, but does it work on a broader scale? That will largely depend of your tastes for this sort of game.
The Way Remastered focuses as heavily on the platforming aspect as it does the puzzle mechanics, which is a welcome change from most games of the genre. While the game is very linear, there is a certain level of joy to be derived from exploring the beautifully sprited locales the game has to offer. The Way Remastered also offers voice acting, which does a lot to improve the overall experience of the journey.The Plot

Good news for Nintendo lovers. It’s the first anniversary of the Nintendo Switch. Since its inception in the market, it has become one of the best and most popular gaming consoles in town. Whether you are playing sci-fi or action stuff, this console works wonders. What makes this device more incredible is the games library with some of the coolest games, such as Electro plankton and Elite Beat Agents, Mario Kart, Pokémon, and Animal Crossing, and lots more. With an excellent gaming interface and added features like touch interface and dual screens, it is an excellent buy.
Nintendo Switch lets you play your favourite games with ease
One of the main aspects of video gaming is the load time and gaming features. With Nintendo Switch, you can be assured of no hindrances while loading the games. Built on advanced gaming software, it is compatible with all the gaming attributes and can start a game within seconds. Gone are those days when favourite games were stopped due to hardware constraints. Now you can enjoy gaming like never with the all-new Nintendo...
There are many ways in which Nintendo has been a driving force in gaming. From the early dominance of the handheld market with the Game Boy to the popularization of motion controls with the Wii, Nintendo has constantly been guiding gaming in ways that many others don’t.
Part of this is because of how fearful the likes of Sony and Microsoft are to do something truly different, but, overwhelmingly, it also comes down to Nintendo’s interest to bring something to the consumer that we really want. Revisiting retro games is one such idea that gamers have chased for years, and Nintendo is one of the few major companies willing to get on board. So why is this, and just how popular are these retro games becoming?“Super Mario Bros 1985” (CC BY 2.0) by SobControllers From Gaming
As many companies follow the bizarre idea that graphics make the gameplay, Nintendo has been one of the companies that know gameplay makes the game play, well, fun. Decades of reliance on...
We’ve heard about it for the past month, and we’ve been waiting for it for the past year; with the creation and launch of My Nintendo, the replacement to the once-hallow-then-shallow Club Nintendo, we were given a slew of monthly rotating digital rewards – from mobile phone backgrounds to discounts on Wii U and 3DS games (most of which are games that as an active Nintendo fan you likely already own). Two things have been missing, physical goods (which we likely will never get, time to accept the reality) and rewards on the Nintendo switch.
What was once a locked door, a room in the Princess’ Castle with a star count you could never reach and open, is now upon us. We can now use our gold coins obtained through purchasing digital and physical software as currency on the Switch eShop and Nintendo’s official website.

It’s no secret that there are a plethora of games available on the Switch. Every week, we get anywhere from five to twenty new games. And, unfortunately, it can be very difficult to sort out the good from the bad sometimes. One that should not be ignored, is WanderjahR.
As far as the genre goes, this one is a little bit tough to describe. It is definitely an RPG. You have a team of four characters that are out on the field at once. It’s not turn based, because you have no control over the characters themselves. Each one has a role (Healer, Tank, Mage) and that role can not be changed. Once you bring a character into your active party, they do their own thing, based on what their role is. It is up to you to manage what roles are on the field at once. You also have the ability to use items at will on any of your characters. And the only other thing you can really control is if you are letting your characters act completely of their own accord, or if you want them all to team up on one of the enemies.
Last week the cephalopod duo performed at the Japanese Splatoon 2 tournament, and now they’ll be coming to english-speakers, although their lyrics will most likely stay Squiddish (or is it Octarian? I can never tell those two languages apart…)
On March 31st, we’ll see them at the Swiss convention, Polymanga, which is dedicated to showcasing japanese pop-culture en masse.
For those of you who live stateside, it’s bound to just be a matter of time before the group heads stateside. Luckily, being an artificial band gives them a little more flexibility in that department!
If you’d like to watch the entire stream of the Japanese concert, Nintendo has released a video here:
The gaming industry has become incredibly huge today. However, back in the day, i.e. the time of Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), it held a special spot for us. After all, for the first time we had video games that were diverse, visually breathtaking (for the time), and pocket-friendly.
When we talk about NES, then games like Super Mario Bros., Contra, Adventure Island, etc. come to mind. However, if you are a fan of card games or casino games, then you will be surprised to know that the classic gaming console had a great selection of these too.
The following are some of the best card games ever released on the NES:
Can you guess what this game is about? If your answer is “blackjack”, then you are absolutely correct! No brownie points for guessing though.
It’s true that the title of the game has no creativity, but it doesn’t matter because at the time it was...
The Nintendo Switch was released recently and is quickly growing big in Japan. The Wii U, which was Nintendo’s big hit in Japan, quickly proved that it had become old. The sales for the Nintendo Switch during the holiday season beat the sales of the Wii U in all of history!
How the Nintendo Switch Beat the Wii U in Japan?
In a country like Japan, where the gaming is growing big every single day, Nintendo Switch has become a big seller. The Wii U has sold 3.3 million units as of the end of 2017. It is the first Nintendo console that supports HD graphics. It was released in 2012, as the eighth generation Nintendo gaming system.
The Switch, on the other hand, was released in 2017 and it already sold 3.4 million units by the end of the year. It took the Switch only a year to reach the kind of sales that its predecessor reached. It’s not a surprise since Japan had a long history with mobile gaming, long before mobile devices were used for communication. Japan has one of the biggest mobile gaming markets in the world. But since 2007, smartphones have been growing more popular as the mobile gaming platform, with more...
World to the West is an odd game. A top down adventure game featuring four playable heroes, the game attempts to capture on the charm of games like A Link To The Past, while calling on the multiple-heroes gameplay reminiscent of Donkey Kong 64. Each character has their own unique skills that allow them to accomplish their own tasks, which ultimately leads to a combined resolution of the goal at hand. However, the way this is executed in World to the West hampers the overall enjoyment in playing this game. Which is unfortunate, because there’s certainly potential in this one.
At $20, it’s an usually shallow experience. There’s unique gameplay, to be sure, but it feels very empty compared to other games in its genre and at its price point. There’s a lot of cool ideas found in this title, but the lack of any AAA polish keeps it from feeling refined or otherwise memorable. Often, you’ll find yourself doing the same thing, or a variant of said thing, over...
“This is it, Madeline.
Why are you so nervous?”
These are the words that greet you when you start up Celeste, a narrative-driven single player precision platformer developed and published by Matt Makes Games.
You would be wise to keep these words safeguarded in your mind as you make your climb up the game’s namesake mountain as Madeline; a young woman that suffers from panic attacks, depression, and anxiety, which manifest themselves into a physical form, lovingly referred to as “Badeline”.
During your journey up the mountain, you’ll come across an array of wonderfully crafted characters, brave excruciating challenges that bring you to the edge of insanity, and collect strawberries to bake into a pie!
Celeste gets right to the heart of what makes any platformer enjoyable. The controls are simple and accessible.
You run. You jump. You dash. You climb.
However, the developers have ensured that no stone be left unturned when it comes to the possibilities of what you can achieve if you master these controls.
Your reward for doing so takes the form of strawberries. A collectible item scattered, hidden, and precariously placed throughout the...
I love portable gaming. So I play video games everywhere I can, including while at work. What follows are my thoughts for FEB/5/2018-FEB/9/2018 while playing Retro City Rampage DX during My Lunch in Gaming.
On my way to my hideout I ran over a bunch of people (on accident?) while driving and earned an Achievement. This is my introduction to Retro City Rampage DX. Anyone who has played Grand Theft Auto 1, Grand Theft Auto 2, or Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars will right away recognize the ‘top down’ look of Retro City Rampage DX. This is not to say it is a bad look at all. The look of the game, as well as all the references being made, is exactly what this game wants to be doing. Retro City Rampage DX defiantly knows what it wants to do.
The music is awesome. Very retro. I am having some slight Deja vu like I did when I first played Shovel Knight. This game so far has doing excellent job at feeling like a lost SNES game that I never got to play as a kid.
Retro City Rampage DX seems to take every advantage to reference, well, anything. I am still very early in the game and I have already had a...

Casino games also found its place in the Nintendo device. Earlier, these were simple software with basic playing tables, but at that time this was more than interesting for most players. If a player wanted to test his/her luck, the only option was to go to the nearest land-based casino. The...
