Article Splatoon 2: Splatfest World Premier Demo
If you haven't yet, download the Splatoon 2 Splatfest World Premier and pick your team for the first Splatfest!


Splatfest is a way to settle debates in Splatoon. During the Splatfest, you’ll be able to choose a side in the game (in this case, Team Cake or Team Ice Cream). When the event starts, every Turf War win you secure will help your cause out. At the end of the event, the winning side will be announced…ending the debate once and for all.

Once you download the demo, you can launch it at any time to choose your side, submit fresh drawings, and take in the scenic sights of Inkopolis Square. However, you’ll only be able to play during the event, so be sure to dive in on Saturday, 7/15 from 3 p.m.—7 p.m. PT.
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.

Article Switch and play with Switch in unexpected places across the U.S.
Imagine driving in the middle of the desert and seeing a couch, TV and video game system in the middle of nowhere, or skiing down the side of a mountain and seeing another one of these surprising setups sitting there in the snow, ready for a round of gaming. It’s a striking visual, sure, but it drives home the message of Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s revolutionary new video game system that launches on March 3. Nintendo Switch is a home gaming system with the portability of a handheld. The system lets you take home video game experiences anywhere you go, offering you the freedom to play where, when and how you like.


To showcase this unprecedented new style of console gaming on the go, Nintendo is showcasing the versatility of Nintendo Switch across the country with highly visual, interactive living room-inspired spaces in places you would never expect, bringing surprises to every stop. The first Nintendo Switch experience will pop up in the desert at Blue Cloud Movie Ranch on Feb. 23. Invited guests will get the chance to enter the interactive space and experience different Nintendo Switch games, as well as delight in the novelty of playing these games in a completely unexpected locale.

To make the first stop even more exciting, John Cena will be the special guest at this location. As a WWE Superstar and actor who is as versatile as the Nintendo Switch console itself, the performer (and Nintendo fan) Cena is the perfect person to kick off this unique tour. Known for his charisma and family-friendly appeal, John Cena will showcase the face-to-face off-TV functionality of 1-2-Switch, a Nintendo Switch launch game that features hilarious activities like milking a cow and participating in a Wild West duel. Cena will play the game with invited fans and YouTube influencers, highlighting how fun it is to play 1-2-Switch using the innovative new Joy-Con controllers.

The second Nintendo Switch experience will pop up in Aspen,...
