Nintendo Switch Pre-orders Launch

It was a huge night last night for the gaming world as Nintendo unveiled features about their newest console. While we didn’t get any Pokemon news quite yet we can see the franchise entering onto the console very soon. The Switch is set to come out March 3 and is slated to cost $299.99 USD.

The console is a home and handheld hybrid that can switch between modes using a dock that connects to your Tv. If the Switch is on the Dock it’s like any home console but, if it’s taken off it becomes a mobile TV or handheld that you can take with you on the go. The Switch will feature app integration and a new online service from Nintendo that will be a paid platform much like it’s competitors.

As for games, we saw lots of fan favorites making a comeback. A new Mario game was announced that is made by the creator of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. We are getting a sequel to Xenoblade and a new Bomberman game. On top of that the new Zelda game, Breath of the Wild, was given the same release date as the console and for the first time ever has full voice acting.

What do you think are you excited to own Nintendo’s newest home console?

Twilight Princess Manga Coming Soon

For Nintendo fans who love The Legend of Zelda you will find that there is a lot of branded merchandise to buy. The Zelda series has everything from cups to blankets to decorate your house with and games on every Nintendo console you can think of. The beloved series even has a tv series from the 80’s that fans consider a cult classic.

The series over the years has come out with several manga books that contain the stories of quite a few of the main games. Twilight Princess one of the arguably most popular entries in the franchise has been missing from the lineup, however. Now there seems to be a ray of hope as a manga of the game has been released overseas and Amazon has an english edition up for pre-order on their site.

The story is noted for being in a darker style than previous entries in the series and contains a unique style of artwork. The one book looks to contain the whole story in a single volume and will retail for around $9.98 USD. The book will contain slight variations from the game and will be a quicker read leaving out a few scenes from the game.
