"..Nintendo Switch as an equal platform...".

Panic Button has certainly been making headlines lately. Not only is it in hot demand following its impressive ports of DOOM and the upcoming handheld version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, but it's also working on a new port ready for reveal next month.

All this focus on Nintendo Switch - and the sheer graphical and performance parity that's proven to be possible on the console - has seen the window between console and Switch releases shrink drastically, and Panic Button general manager and co-founder Adam Creighton says this gap is only going to get smaller.

We'll take five.

Sometimes fan-made creations can simply blow you away, and this 1/2 scale Donkey Kong-inspired arcade cabinet made from LEGO is certainly one of those times.

The creator of the cabinet, Helen Sham, has explained that over 15,000 LEGO bricks were required to build the entire piece. Standing at more than five feet tall, the cabinet weighs over 65 pounds (nearly 30kg).

"It would be a net benefit to the users".

After the recent Fortnite cross-platform play debacle - in which Sony has blocked players from using their accounts on Nintendo Switch - the idea of playing with friends regardless of system preference has been a hot topic just lately. One of the most talked about games for which players hope to see cross-platform play is FIFA, and with FIFA 19 headed to all major platforms this September, now would be the perfect time for the franchise to jump aboard the all-inclusive ship.

Of course, FIFA does not currently allow any cross-platform play whatsoever. This means that you can't play with or against friends on a different console to your own, and there is also no way of having a consistent FIFA Ultimate Team experience across your favourite systems. This doesn't seem to be an oversight on EA's part, though, and apparently, it is something the studio has looked into.

But what does it mean?

A countdown is being broadcast to in-game TV sets across the Switch version of Fortnite, and nobody is totally sure what it means.

Epic Games has used such tactics in the past to drop hints at forthcoming changes to the game, so it could be related to new content, skins or even a map change. Players of the game on other formats are currently seeing a skull symbol in the Snobby Shores area of the map, which also indicates something is about to happen.

“It took quite a bit of time”.

Not every game has aged as gracefully as the 1995 Super Nintendo title, Yoshi’s Island. Even by modern standards, the distinctive hand-drawn aesthetics present from start to finish within this release have withstood the test of time. So, how exactly did the art style for one of Yoshi’s earliest outings come about?

During an interview with Kotaku at this year’s E3, Hisashi Nogami was asked this exact question. Having been an artist on the original Yoshi’s Island team back in the day and more recently the producer of Splatoon 2 on the Nintendo Switch, he explained how it was an arduous process, ultimately achieved one pixel at a time:

What kind of impact did Nintendo have on this year's show?

E3 is finally over for another year, bringing to a close the biggest event yet. From surprise promotional crossovers on the Ubisoft conference to a certain game pretty much taking over Nintendo's big summer Direct, there's been plenty of topics to talk about now the dust is beginning to settle. So we've switched on the NL symbol, turned it towards the night's sky and from the darkness, Team Nintendo Life has appeared to discuss our biggest takeaways. As always, we want to hear what you made of Nintendo's presence at the big expo, so be sure to leave a comment below...

Glen Fox, guides editor

Honestly, I’m feeling a little deflated after Nintendo’s E3 showing because I was really hoping for at least one big new announcement for this year. It was pretty telling that most of the Direct focused on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, because that’s all Nintendo’s really got for year two. That’s great for fans of Smash Bros., but I’ve never really had more than a passing interest in it.

In the current calendar year, sales for the 3DS and 2DS have increased by 10 percent. During the same interview with Forbes, Reggie was also quick to dismiss the idea that the 3DS was beginning to clash with the Switch - explaining how the dedicated handheld device still served a purpose.
