‘Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle’ Hands-On, Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Accessory Review: Nyko Clip Grip Power

Start Slideshow The Nintendo Switch Online app launched with very little fanfare. The voice-chat solution is ill-conceived and clumsily implemented, but that didn’t stop Nyko with dreaming up the perfect Joy-Con grip solution and app companion.

Nintendo Switch Online App is a Silent Ghost Town

When the Nintendo Switch Online app was launched alongside Splatoon 2, it did so with a mix of both anticipation and controversy. Nintendo’s first stab at an online voice chat experience was both a positive feature for a team-based online shooter and also a bit of a mess — its recommended setup, via accessories partner HORI, was a jumble of wires to connect your phone, the Switch, and your headset into a two-channel mixer shaped …
