Ever since the first Kingdom Hearts game, I have always been a big fan. The mash up of Square Enix and Disney characters is such a unique concept that always kept me intrigued. Despite the number of spinoffs and the convoluted story, my fandom stayed mostly intact. Coming off of Kingdom Hearts 3, which was fun, but could have been better, I was wondering where Square would take the KH universe next. Fast forward to the year 2020 and the answer is a new rhythm game.
What’s good y’all? Despite the state of the world, I hope you had a great week. We have been graced with another weekend and I hope you are able to get plenty of game time in. Speaking of games, let’s chat. What games are on your gaming playlist this weekend?
FRACTER, originally releasing on mobile platforms in 2018, makes it’s way to the Nintendo Switch, this week. This unique puzzle game has you follow a young hero who is determined to fight back against darkness, with light. Thanks to the dope folks over at The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, I was able to get an early look.
E3 2018 has officially come to a close. It smacked us right in the face with plenty of new game announcements, game previews, some solid press conferences, and some not so solid press conferences. *cough cough* Square Enix *cough cough* Now begins the hard part of waiting for these new games to actually release to the public! Here are 10 that I am impatiently waiting for the most:
Nintendo released a video this morning giving the world its first looks at the next Nintendo console. Know as the NX for quite sometime, the official name is now Switch. That name pretty much fits with the console since it can be played on your TV or on the go. We all know this is the successor to the WiiU, but there is no word on whether Nintendo will keep making handheld systems since the Switch offers portability as well.
In the video you can see how the system functions. It essentially looks like a modernized WiiU gamepad, but with way more functionality. Controllers slide off of each side of the handheld screen, then you combine them on another contraption to get the true living room, console experience. Rumors that the Switch would be cartridge based were spot on. Check out the video below.
The Switch seems to already be garnering quite a bit of third party support as well. Skyrim can even be seen running on the Switch during the video.
The Nintendo Switch is dated to launch March 2017. Hopefully Nintendo has a Nintendo Direct planned sometime soon so we can get more information on the Switch.
