The European SNES Classic looks 'cuter' than the US version (The Verge)
DDQmxi4XcAAopva.0 (1).jpg

If you saw our post by MrMischief you'll have noticed that Nintendo will be releasing the SNES classic with 21 classic SNES games later this year in September and that's great; but it turns out Europe will be getting their own version which according to The Verge is considerably 'cuter'. The differences however are purely cosmetic.

This tweet pretty much sums up how I feel:

What are your thoughts? Do you like the US version or the EU version more?
SNES Classic Announced

The SNES Classic will include Star Fox 2 and 18 other games. Star Fox 2 was intended to be released in 1995 as the true sequel of Star Fox, however it was never released because of the concern it would interfere with the scheduled N64 launch (which ended up not releasing for about a year and a half later). There are ROMs for this game out there but this will be the first official release of Star Fox 2. That alone will make this system a must buy for collectors. Release price is $80 and launches on 9/29.

Article Why ARMS is AMAZING.
As many of you may know, I LOVE the switch. I love it so much I bought it on launch day. So when ARMS, a hyped game that was announced for the switch, was released, you better bet I bought that too. For any of you who don't know what ARMS is, here's a link to Nintendo's reveal video. I would have explained it myself, but I couldn't do this game justice.

I fell in love with ARMS. Its roster of ten playable characters (and two non - playable ones), plenty of game modes, its delicate balance of strategy, luck and casual fun make it a great game to play.

I find that even when you lose, you still have tons of fun, and you can always try again. I never found myself getting frustrated, despite getting pummeled to the same person over and over again. There's a great video on this topic by BriHard on youtube, which I'll put right here:
. It explains this perfectly.

After playing through the Grand Prix, I found that there were always things to be worked on in my strategy that I never realized were there. And this wasn't frustrating to deal with at all. It provided a new fresh challenge and something to focus on and work towards. But hey, that might just be me and my bad luck.

ARMS doesn't have much of a story, though. There are only two surprises in the Grand Prix and that's about the whole story right there. So if you only like story based games, ARMS isn't for you.

To sum up this article, I would like to provide a few tips and tricks for people just starting out or who are considering buying the game.

The ranked mode, (unlocked when you have beaten Grand Prix mode at difficulty level 6 and up) is the easiest way that I have found to get coins, even when losing. The coins are DOUBLED. This helps you get new ARMS quicker, which can improve how well you compete.

Playing online is a great way to see how you can improve the flaws in your strategy, but is the WORST for earning coins.

Article Monster Hunter XX for Switch not coming to North America
Gamespot has confirmed that Capcom has no plans to localize Monster Hunter XX for the Switch to North America. Since the Switch is not region locked you could still buy the Japanese copy to play in North America, but being able to read and understand Japanese will likely be necessary.

The Monster Hunter series has a long history on Nintendo’s consoles — as well as the PlayStation Portable — and Monster Hunter XX is itself an expanded port of Monster Hunter Generations, a Nintendo 3DS game.

“Monster Hunter’s particularly huge in Japan, where previous portable entries have dominated the sales charts for months on end,” Polygon wrote about the announcement of Monster Hunter XX. The reveal that the series would be available on Nintendo’s new hybrid home and handheld system seems to have been well-received, according to analysts — soon after Capcom announced the Switch port of XX, Nintendo’s stock hit a nearly nine-year high.

The next Monster Hunter game coming to the United States is Monster Hunter: World, a title coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Nintendo Switch's Online Service Will Be $20/Year.
Nintendo Switch’s online service will cost $20/year and will launch at some point in 2018, the publisher said today. Playing Switch games online will be free until the service launches.
You can also get a one-month subscription for $4 and a three-month subscription for $8.

Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will have ongoing access to a library of classic games with added online play. Users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription.
More new joycons for Splatoon 2
Last night Nintendo revealed some new details on two of its big upcoming Switch games, Arms and Splatoon 2. But mixed amongst the story trailers and new character reveals was some bright, colorful new hardware. The Splatoon-themed, neon pink-and-green options include both a pair of Joy-Con controllers, and the sleek Pro Controller. There’s also a similarly-themed Switch carrying case, complete with lots of squid graphics.

Japan and Europe — there’s no word on a release in North America. The accessories will be launching on July 21st, the same day Splatoon 2 releases on Switch, and in Japan you’ll be able to get the game and Joy-Con as part of a console bundle. For those in North America looking for a colorful new Joy-Con, there are other options. In June, Nintendo is releasing a bright yellow option to go along with the launch of Arms.
