Back when Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was launched, players quickly pointed out that the inside of Princess Peach’s skirt was cloaked in darkness. The same is true in the recently released Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but not for all characters.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has it all, and whether you're a seasoned pro or a newbie coming in blind, "it all" is a lot. Every fighter from every prior Smash game is available, plus over 100 stages, a lot of wily items, a slew of quality-of-life updates and a somewhat perplexing collectables system called "Spirits." Here's how to get the most out of Smash Ultimate, which is, in my opinion, the best Smash game yet.
The First Tree is an exploration game about learning who you are. You take control of a fox in a colourful frosted forest. As the fox searches for her children, another story plays out, recounted by an unseen male narrator, that focuses on family relationships and regrets. Those thoughts come paired with intoxicating sights and powerful quiet. I have never wanted to sink into a game world quite like this before.
Now that Smash Bros. Ultimate is finally here, and I've gotten over being shook by it, I asked our resident Smash Bros. expert Cecilia D'Anastasio to give me a quick rundown of the new characters and their new movesets.
My apartment has only two things in it: video game controller cables, and a cat. OK, there's also some furniture, but most of the time, it does feel like my home life revolves around keeping my cat entertained with any object other than video game controller cables. Over time, I've learned some techniques to stop him from playing with these dangerous yet tantalising wires.
Emulator development is tireless work, full of compromises, trial and error and endless optimisation. Which makes Yuzu — an experimental emulator for the Nintendo Switch — all the more impressive, especially when you consider it can run the just-released Pokemon Let's Go with a great deal of accuracy.
And to think, it used to be hard to get your hands on some of these.
Pokémon Let’s Go revisits a lot of the same scenarios from Pokémon Red and Blue, including run-ins with members of the villainous Team Rocket organisation.
In Let’s Go, these aren’t just any Team Rocket members, it’s the notorious Jessie and James from the Pokémon anime. They’re as evil and dim-witted as they’ve always been, and as a result, they’re the funniest characters in the game.
It's Pokemon Let's Go launch day, and trainers around the world are setting off on a new adventure through Kanto with their partner Pokemon. That is, unless they can't decide between the Eevee and Pikachu versions of the game. We're here to help. You should definitely choose Eevee. Or maybe Pikachu.
On September 20 Steve Sinclair, Digital Extremes' creative director, tweeted out that its third-person shooter MMO Warframe had just gotten faster, decreasing latency by one millisecond to be precise. That was thanks to the work of Panic Button, an outside studio that in the last few years has focused on porting other companies' games (Rocket League, Wolfenstein II) to the Nintendo Switch. Panic Button has spent the last nine months helping Digital Extremes do the same for Warframe, making small improvements along the way that ended up benefiting the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as well as Switch.
