Metal Slug X Review – Switch eShop / Neo Geo

It remains to be seen how many Neo Geo titles HAMSTER will ultimately bring to the Switch, but there’s been no sign of the publisher slowing down in recent times. This has ensured that a good range of titles are available, but it has resulted in some that are surplus to requirements. There’s little reason to download Fatal Fury 2 when the Special update is also available, and now Metal Slug 2 becomes a game …

Arms, in particular, is a fascinating detour for the company, featuring a diverse lineup of surprisingly stylish fighters. And now the company is expanding on that …

Nintendo Bids Farewell to the Miiverse By Opening a Special Memorial Channel

It’s almost time for the Miiverse to take its final bow. To close up shop. To wave bye-bye to its thousands of fleeting, stylus-penned digital sketches. It’s not a totally unexpected development—the Switch, Nintendo’s post-Wii U console effort, is doing far better than the Wii U ever did, and it has no Miiverse bundled within it. Splatoon 2 has its own Miiverse-like ecosystem, but beyond, you’ll find nothing of the sort on the portable-home hybrid …

The most recently released game on that list, Star Fox 2, was finished more than 20 years ago. Despite leaks of an unfinished version, it has never been sold by Nintendo until …
