Theres already a lot of analysis and speculation of which characters might be in the new Smash based off the silhouettes.

Link defintely looks to be his Breath of the Wild version, I wonder if Zelda is too?

Very excited for Wario Ware! Hurray for the 3DS not being dead!

I was excited about Little Nightmares until I found out it was digital only. (Lame)

I'm very excited for Octopath Traveller, but I suspect I'm in the minority.

And something that didn't get announced for the Direct - Another World (Yes the 1990s PC game) is getting a Switch port.

I had to do some fault finding with my Switch last night, none of my Pro Controllers would wirelessly connect to the system. They would connect via a wire but otherwise neither device would find each other.

It turns out, that you can only ever have 8 individual controllers paired to one system at a time.

Oddly, I managed to have 9 (so the system told me). I then disconnected all the controllers and started again by attaching a set of Joy Cons.

I then began the pairing process for one of my Pro Controllers - nothing, couldn't see eachother still.

After finally running out of ideas, I restarted the system and tried again - all was fine.

Very odd.

While this probably fall under general news (and late news at that :oops: ), it's pretty exciting to read of the development of a Switch release of Aka to Blue at... some stage in the future?

Aka to Blue is already available on mobile platforms, with an arcade PCB version in the works (or already complete). And its the first game from Tanoshimasu, with ex-Cave Co Hiroyuki Kimura as CEO. As close to a new Cave-shmup as you're going to get, as Cave has gone the mobile-free-to-play route.

Fantastic, thanks. I'd not heard about it. That'll be a day one for me.

Have you checked out Danmaku Unlimited 3, by the way? It's a superb bullet hell indie, pretty and with a superb soundtrack and a rewarding graze system. One of my highlights of the year so far.

Oh yeah, I totally downloaded that day one! Love Danmaku Unlimited 3... the Switch really is building up a genuinely great library of games that aren't just AAA titles!

I only just learnt of Aka to Blue and Tanoshimasu today... it's amazing what flies under the radar!

Hey guys,

I've just purchased a switch and looking for advice on memory cards. Any tips? What size should I go for?

128 is the sweet spot for value and size. I've got about seventy games installed on my card and Switch, admittedly sixty of those are under 1Gb, comfortably, but that should do you. 200Gb occasionally go on sale but not managed to catch a deal yet.

Looks like the Switch has been hacked wide open. I won't link to the article here, but yep.

I must admit, the thought of a handheld that powerful running emulators excites me a great deal.

You can probably buy an android tablet that runs on the same cpu for far less than the price of a switch if all you care about is emulation in the go.

Yeah, I picked it up, my friend was supposed to be bring his 7-year-old daughter around who is craft mad but things changed so it never happened.

With God of War, I’ve not really been that attached to it, so I’ll wait for my crafting buddy to appear one weekend and we’ll all do it together then.

I am tempted to build the piano myself though, I must admit.

Do we have any idea when the next Nintendo Direct is supposed to take place?

I'm getting a bit nervous just waiting for certain infos to drop without any time frame to go on.

I had a wonder about that yesterday in fact man.

There’s an info dump on the online service this month that’s coming into effect later this year but nothing announced about a Direct.

That said, they tend to be announced only a few days before they actual happen.

Good to know, thanks. Silly minds think alike, I suppose! :lol:

I just hope there is one coming sooner rather than later. I want to know if I should start looking into a Switch or not.
