Switch Sales Hit 10 Million Worldwide, Zelda/Odyssey/MK8D Bought By Over 50% of Owners

Nintendo announced today that the Nintendo Switch has hit 10 million units sold worldwide, in just 9 months.

Reggie also commented to Variety on sales of a few games:

“The lineup of Nintendo-published games also has fueled fueling Switch sales, Fils-Aime said. Three titles have been purchased by more than 50% of Switch owners: “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” — which won game of the year at the 2017 Game Awards — “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” and “Super Mario Odyssey.” Another title, third-person shooter “Splatoon 2,” has been purchased by one in four Switch owners, he said.”

So that’s over 5 million sold for Zelda, Mario Odyssey, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Switch is having a REALLY nice first year, defying the claims of impeding doom made by stupid people.

Bayonetta 1 and 2 Coming to Nintendo Switch on February 16th 2018

In addition to Bayonetta 3, the Switch is also getting ports of both Bayonetta 1 and 2. They’ll be releasing on February 16th.

A few new features have been added to Bayonetta 2.

First, of course, is Amiibo support. There aren’t specifics yet but the Smash Bros. Amiibo will be supported.

Also, the game will now support local co-op multiplayer as well as online. As well as video capture support.

As far as pricing goes, Bayonetta 2 will be $49.99 on the eShop, and you’ll be able to buy the original Bayonetta for $9.99. Or if you buy the original it will cost $29.99 and you can then buy Bayonetta 2 for $29.99 as well.

So either way it’s the same price when buying both games: $60.

If i remember right, it was basically the same on the Wii U.

 

Do not complain about Bayonetta 2 (or 3) not being on “more deserving” platforms.

Capcom announces several Mega Man titles for Switch + Mega Man 11/MMX collection for Switch/PS4/PC/XB1

Capcom today announced a bunch of Mega Man titles for the Switch.

First, they’re bringing both Mega Man Legacy Collection games to the system. They also announced that “all 8” Mega Man X games are coming, in what I’d assume is a new legacy collection for the X series.

But the biggest news is that they’re making Mega Man 11.

A lot of people weren’t expecting much from their 30th anniversary stream, so this is a pretty nice surprise.

Mega Man 11 is set to come out late next year, with the ports I’d assume coming earlier in the year.

The legacy collection games will have Amiibo support as well.

MM11 and the MMX games will also come to PC, XB1 and PS4.

Retro Review: The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past

I’ll just start off by saying that this game is one of my all-time favorites. Even though I had played the first two Zelda games (the first more than the second) quite a bit in the 80s, it was this one that really got me to love the series. This game took everything about the original and improved on it by leaps and bounds. It has the same overhead view as the original, but there is so much more to this game than the first one. I’m not a good writer but I love this game so if my review just sounds like a fan gushing over a game, don’t act surprised.

Review: Sonic Forces (Nintendo Switch)

EDIT: I changed the scoring system to be x/10 and have updated the scores accordingly. It’s basically the same score though.
The pain has finally lessened, but the scars will always be there to remind me…of when I bought Sonic Forces. What was I thinking? I don’t know.

It was very late at night, I was hanging out on Discord as always. I had an apparent offer to buy the game for me. But no, I had to go and do something incredibly stupid.
