by Peter Paltridgeon June 16, 2017
Akihiro Hino co-founded Level-5, one of the most revered game studios in the world, and he also created the Ni No Kuni series. When he speaks, it’s worth listening. Polygon asked Hino if his upcoming Ni No Kuni 2 differed in any way from its predecessor, and Hino replied that yes it did, in many […]

E3 2017: Super Mario Odyssey Has A Co-Op Mode

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2017
The day Super Mario Odyssey was formally revealed at E3, representatives of Nintendo spoke of a possible multiplayer feature but said they were “still working on it.” Today in the Treehouse a co-op function was demoed for the first time. We’re not sure if this was the feature they were referring to, but it’s cool […]

E3 2017: There Will Be A Pikmin 4, But Not Tomorrow

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2017
Nintendo boss Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that Pikmin 4 is in development and will be out for the Switch sometime in the future. “I’ve been told not to share anything about this from PR,” Miyamoto said to Eurogamer while chuckling, because he’s Mario’s daddy and can break any order he wants, “but I can tell […]

E3 2017: Sushi Striker: The Way Of Sushido

by Peter Paltridgeon June 14, 2017
Nintendo wasn’t kidding this year when they said they were spacing out their announcements. Thirty minutes ago, out of nowhere, the live Treehouse stream sprung an unannounced 3DS game on everyone….and boy is it an interesting one. It’s called “Sushi Striker: The Way Of Sushido,” and It’s early enough that it doesn’t have a complete […]

E3 2017: New Final Fantasy XV DLC Chapter Arriving Prompto

by Peter Paltridgeon June 14, 2017
Square-Enix had a reduced presence at this year’s E3, with Kingdom Hearts 3 being reserved for D23 and nothing much else on the immediate horizon. And the less said about virtual reality fishing, the better. At least there’s extra content coming for the games we already have. S-E spent ten long years on the newest […]

E3 2017: Hats Off To Super Mario Odyssey

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
Super Mario Odyssey is now playable on the E3 show floor, and journalists can’t get enough. It’s the first open-world Mario title since Super Mario Sunshine, and it’s making a big impression. Until today, all we knew about Mario’s new hat (now named “Cappy”) was that it had eyeballs. Turns out that hat has just […]

E3 2017: Highlights Of Nintendo’s Conference

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
For several years now Nintendo has forgone the traditional E3 stage presentation in favor of a pre-prepared livestream. With most of the other companies’ conferences not leaving a very strong impression, it was up to Nintendo to drop the bombs we were hoping for. And we did get a few. This year’s Nintendo Direct video […]

E3 2017: Metroid: Samus Returns (Twice)

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
There hasn’t been a proper new Metroid game in seven years. People are so starved for a new Samus adventure that anything, even a mere title card that contains no footage but promises a game is in development, would bring down the house at this point. This morning we got that…and then we got more. […]

E3 2017: Mario Meets The Rabbids For A Kingdom Battle

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
One of the worst kept secrets of this year’s E3 was the existence of a Mario/Rabbids crossover. Thanks to leaked images and art, it’s been known for at least a month, and it’s been dreaded. Vocal critics who can’t stand hyperactive screaming fuzzy things held deep contempt for the Rabbids and couldn’t stand the fact […]
