Pre-ordering Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope on Nintendo Switch

October 10, 2022 0 Comments

With just about 10 days to it's release,  Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will make it's way on the Nintendo Switch on 20 October 2022!

In the strategy adventure Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Mario and his friends team up with the Rabbids once again to restore order to the galaxy! Explore planets filled with quirky residents, and even quirkier secrets, while you stop a mysterious evil from plunging the universe into chaos.


I went into it not really knowing what to expect but Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a hidden gem with full of surprises. It’s a turn-based tactics gameplay where you figure out the tactical puzzles of chaining together as many stringed attacks in the least amount of moves possible. It’s oddly satisfying seeing the enemies getting beaten up Mario and Rabbid style. 


[Mario Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Gold Edition + Donkey Kong Adventure DLC Review]


So now with it's sequel out, I can't wait to get my hands on another fantastic helping of strategy-focused goodness, Mario + Rabbid style of course. Besides the Standard Edition, there are are some special Gold and Cosmic Editions available!


I found the Cosmic Edition on Qoo10 for SGD$59.90, and the Gold Edition was SGS$110.90. What a steal!


It's sad that we don't have the steel case, but if you order from the Nintendo Store UK it comes with with a free SteelBook case.


The Gold Edition includes the base game, a Season Pass (which contains upcoming DLC packs, including additional story content featuring a new character, quests, and battles), and the Galactic Prestige Collection (three exclusive weapon skins, unlockable right away). 


The Cosmic Edition just does not have the Season Pass for the DLCs, which is pretty reasonable for that price. It comes with  the base game, and the Galactic Prestige Collection mentioned above.  I've been buying a tad too much games, so this was the only one which was more 'friendly' on my wallet, so this is the version which I got. I could always get the DLCs at a later stage if I am interested in it.


Now all I have to do is wait for the game, and find time time to play!

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Introduces Wiglett, the Long Eel Cousin of Diglett

September 30, 2022 0 Comments
The Paldean region of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has added another unique creature to its ranks...
... Meet the Wiglett

Digletts are Ground Type Pokémon basically whack-a-moles with cute noses, and they were made even more memorable by their cries of “Diglett Dig” in the cartoon. It's cousin the Wiglett,  resembles a garden eel, a subset of the eel species that live underground and poke their heads out from under water. It debuted during a livestream in Japan, which verified that while it bears a striking resemblance to Diglett, it is different enough to be classified as a unique species and not a Paldean variant.


Wiglett is a long worm-like creature that rises from the ground. But unlike the Diglett it is not a Ground Type but Water Type.  It also has a pair of eyes and a nose similar to Diglett, one of the original 151 Pokémon that has already been shown in trailers for the new game.

The Wiglett becomes the 17th new Pokémon revealed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, including the Paldean variant of Pokémon Wooper from the second generation. New species introduced for the new game include LeChonk, the legendary Koraidon and Miraidon, and the newcomers Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.



Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the ninth main installment in the Pokémon franchise, which will introduce players to the new region of Paldea when it launches on 18 November 2022 exclusively on Nintendo Switch.


 Pre-order @ Amazon - SGD62


 Pre-order @ Qoo10 - SGD$60

Kirbys Dream Buffet release date window: Gameplay, trailer, pre-order and latest news

July 12, 2022 0 Comments



Have you seen the adorable trailer for  Kirby's Dream Buffet yet? If you haven't, check out this cute little sneak peak below! 




The trailer shows a collection of colorful and fun stages which are all themed around food. In addition, Kirby can also be seen transforming into other baked goods as well, such as a cupcake and a pink chocolate bar! It seems like the winner will be rewarded with a medal of sorts for being the biggest Kirby by the end of the round.


Kirby’s Dream Buffet is a four-player multiplayer game, which finds a group of adorable Kirbys rolling through a collection of food-themed stages consisting of four rounds. Players will need to collect strawberries in order to grow bigger and prepare for the final battle of each stage. There are multiple levels all with different challenges for the four Kirby players to complete, including races and puzzles. A winner is announced after each challenge.


In the words of Nintendo in the announcement of the game, the basic story setup for Kirby's Dream Buffet will feature "a gang of Kirbys rolling through a smorgasbord of food-themed stages in four rounds of frantic multiplayer fun."


The bigger a player's Kirby grows, the better chance they will have to be able to knock other players off the stage and use familiar Copy Abilities, or Copy Food Abilities as they are called in Kirby’s Dream Buffet. Players will use these Copy Food Abilities to beat the competition and win.


Kirby’s Dream Buffet offers accessible gameplay for players of all skill levels, but also presents a healthy challenge for those looking to satiate their craving for friendly competition,” Nintendo explains.


Nintendo has promised that Kirby's Dream Buffet release date will fall in Summer 2022!


The newest Kirby game is a new exclusive game for the Nintendo Switch. So it will only be available via the Nintendo eShop, meaning there won’t be physical copies at retail stores or online. 😞 The game can’t be pre-ordered at the moment, and will only be available digitally.


Are you excited about this release and would you wish for a physical release as well? Let us know in the comments below~!

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Get your Arceus and Darkrai

April 03, 2022 0 Comments

How to get Arceus in Pokemon BDSP


To find Arceus, you'll need to have a Pokémon Legends: Arceus save file on your Nintendo Switch system with all the main missions completed, and ensure your game is updated to Version 1.3.0. In addition to Arceus and Darkrai, the update introduced the Global Wonder Station, a facility in Jubilife City where you can engage in Wonder Trades with players around the world (finally!).

You'll also need to enter the Hall of Fame and obtain the National Pokédex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl

Once all the conditions have been met, return to your room in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl, where you can get the Azure Flute item. 

With the Azure Flute, go to the Spear Pillar at the top of Mount Coronet, and Arceus will reveal itself. Be ready to battle this powerful Pokémon!

HINT: Arceus will be Level 80 and since it's a normal-type Pokémon, it's weak to fighting-type attacks. Be careful though - you don't want Arceus to faint!


How to get Darkrai mystery gift in Pokemon BDSP


To encounter Darkrai, you'll need to have the Member Card, which will be distributed via Mystery Gift between April 1 and April 30. Once you've obtained the Member Card, travel to Newmoon Island, where you'll get a chance to capture Darkrai.

With the Member Card in hand, you'll first need to enter the Hall of Fame and obtain the National Pokedex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pear before you can encounter Darkrai. You will also need to have traveled to Fullmoon Island and encountered Cresselia.

The most important thing is to collect the Member card this month and when you meet the requirements later on (after April) you can meet and catch Darkrai anytime later.


Have you caught them all?

Nintendo Switch News: Update 14.0.0

March 24, 2022 0 Comments
Nintendo

If you have a lot of games on your Nintendo Switch and wanted a way to organize them, you can do it with the latest 14.0.0 version update. This updates comes with a “group” function which allows players to create up to 100 folders or groups. 

Each of these folders, which are called Groups, can hold up to 200 games. Individual games can also be simultaneously accommodated in several groups. The only thing you can't do? Having groups within a group. So if you wanted to create sub groups in a group, sorry but maybe next time. 


The new feature can be found on your Nintendo Switch dashboard by selecting “All Software”. 

Press the L button to view the titles in groups.

  1. If no folders have been created yet, a pop-up window will appear allowing you to create a new group. 
  2. All the games that should be in the folder have to be selected. 
  3. The selected titles can be sorted in the group as you wish. 
  4. Give the new folder a name. 

Note: New groups cannot be displayed on the Nintendo Switch home screen. They are only displayed as soon as you are in the new group menu.


Besides the folder addition, volume setting for Bluetooth devices has also been improved and increased. The volume can now be adjusted either via the Nintendo Switch as usual, or via the volume control on your audio device which has to support AVRCP profiles.

The update should happen automatically, but id it doesn't happen you can always start it manually via the system settings.
