New BotW DLC!
Yes, yes. That is Link driving an ancient motorcycle. And no, this is not some user created mod. This is the new DLC for Breath of the Wild! Looks pretty friggin awesome if you ask me. Check out the article for some more info.

MEGA MAN 11 Coming 2018!
(unrelated, but super-bad image of MegaMan.)

Oh, joy! One of the most frustrating game series of all time is releasing a new title sometime in 2018 and it will be on the Nintendo Switch! Anyone who has any experience with the MegaMan series, knows the pain and suffering it can cause, but also the joys of beating a level and its accompanying boss. I bought the MegaMan collection for my PS4 last year and was instantly reminded just how hard these dang games can be. I have always preferred Metroid, but MegaMan does hold a special place in my heart simply because I remember these games being some of the first real challenges I encountered as a gamer. The first time I thought to myself "I don't think I can do this... I don't think anyone can do this!" Like most games, however, I figured out the timing and learned the level like the back of my hand and came out victorious at the end. MegaMan is another game that I think will be a beautiful addition to the Switch's ever-growing library.
Will my fellow NintendoRadarians feel the same? Watch announcement trailer below.

Who is ready for some Yooka-Laylee?
Remember Banjo-Kazooie? One of Nintendo 64's most unique and delightfully fun titles now has its own successor: Yooka-Laylee!
Instead of a bear/bird combo, this new platformer sets its main characters as a chameleon and a bat who must work together to achieve their end goals. The game was originally released in April for other consoles, but will be released on the Switch on December 14, 2017. IGN scored it at 7/10 while Steam rated it at a 9/10. Polygon, the source of my article, rated it at just a 5.5 upon its original release. Now, I personally think that a game like this is perfect for the Switch and would've sold better and received better reviews if it were an exclusive, or at least Switch ready upon its original release. I plan on picking up this game ASAP. Why? Because Banjo-Kazooie was amazing. Because I am still a 10 year old at heart. Because it is cute as hell. Because my wife will play it, too. That's why.

What do you think, Internet?

Video Killer Switch Joy-Con Grip: WATCH IT!

This thing is crazy cool. While I do not think that I would ever attach my phone to it, who knows? Maybe I would if I had Splatoon2. But, the other features are pretty dope if you ask me. AND the $24.99 price is nice. At least a lot nicer than the Pro Controller...
Article PS Vita 2 anyone? Sony says no.
Sad days indeed for those of you holding out for a PS Vita 2 as Sony remains adamant they have no plans to jump back into the handheld market.

When asked about a potential Switch competitor, that line of discussion was swiftly shut down by Sony CEO Andrew House. House said

It's odd that Sony have adopted such a stance as it was recently revealed they had already filed patents for a Vita successor:

Sony launched the Vita in 2012 off the back of its older more successful brother the PSP which over its lifetime sold 84 million units, but sadly the Vita just couldn't compete selling a poor 10 million units down to Sonys lack of support, poor third party and multiplayer offerings and funky weird control scheme all of which contributed to its demise whereas it’s competitor the 3DS went on to sell 69million units.

Some would argue that the Vita laid the groundwork for the Switch by wetting the appetite of gamers who wanted to experience home-console like games on the go. And while the Vita may not have been a success, that’s not to say they couldn’t be successful in the future.

Just look at the Switch; it’s off to a great start selling over 7 million units thus far and had there not been any availability issues that number may have been even higher and going into the holiday season the Switch is looking to be a hot ticket item with an impressive games lineup and a sweet price tag so we can see it being under many a Christmas tree this year!

Hulu Comes to Switch Today! (11/9)
Television streaming service Hulu will be the first video streaming service to come to Nintendo's hot new console, and will allow users to watch their favorite shows and movies either from the comfort of their own home or on the go! I don't know about the rest of you NintendoRadarians, but I am especially excited for this update. I love Hulu and watch it all the time, streaming everything from Bob's Burgers to Gravity Falls, from The X-Files to A Handmaid's Tale(super cool Margaret Atwood adaptation. Hulu Original). Tons of great programming with a few decent movies peppered in here and there combined with the portability and playability of my Switch, make for an amazing combination. Some of us may have been hoping for Netflix, but Hulu is just fine for me! Read more here: https://www.polygon.com/2017/11/9/16628108/nintendo-switch-hulu-app-release-date
