Issue 278— April 18, 2022

Nintendo Switch Sports

Hey, here's your weekly update on all things Nintendo — it's issue #278 of Switch Weekly. 

Next week there's nearly 35 games coming to the Switch, including that Star Wars Force Unleashed port and a game about.. apple farming. The full list is below as usual.

The 1986 Japanese Super Mario feature-length anime (often regarded as the first ever movie based on a game) is a fun little slice of often forgotten Nintendo history — and now we have a new 4K restoration of it. It's a lovely bit of restoration work if nothing else, and an important bit of preservation too.

This week there has been a lot of chatter, thanks to new footage shown in the delay annoucement video, about whether the next Zelda game will arrive on refreshed Switch hardware — an exciting and intriguing prospect for sure. 

Catch you next time.

Cheers âœŒï¸

PREVIEW Nintendo Switch Sports  Some 15 years on from the original Wii Sports, can Nintendo capture that same magic on Switch? Well, a fresh set of previews for the upcoming sports game suggest it's shaping up in the right direction. Stephen Totilo at Axios said it feels "intuitive and delightful".

The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 speculation provides a glimmer of hope for a Switch Pro — The thinking here is that the recent trailer looks a little too good to run on the current Switch hardware. 🤔 It's not wild to think that BotW 2 could drop next March...alongside new hardware right?

10 years ago, 'Fez' changed indie gaming forever with one mind-blowing trick — This game is a classic. I listen to the soundtrack often. It's available on the eShop, and you really should play it if you've not yet. He's wearing a Fez.
