An engaging single-player mode contains 30 stages, so you’ll have to devise a multitude of strategies and maneuvers to conquer them all.

Nintendo announces DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
February 14, 2017, 10:45:49 PM by Link-NM
Nintendo has announced plans for extra downloadable content for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions. Both DLC packs will be able to be preordered with the "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Expansion Pass" which will be availabe for $19.99 USD when the game releases. More information in the video and press release below:



Quote from: Press Release
Nintendo Prepares Downloadable Content for The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
New Adventures Built on the Game’s Huge World Coming Later in 2017


REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 14, 2017 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U consoles is one of the largest, most engaging video games Nintendo has ever created. While the main game offers players an engrossing quest that will keep them entertained for hours, as well as the freedom to explore the vast Hyrule at their own pace, the game world provides a rich canvas that offers the opportunity for additional adventures. As a result, the first-ever downloadable content for the main-line Legend of Zelda series is in development.
 
Starting when the game launches on March 3, players will be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for $19.99, granting access to two new sets of downloadable content for the game when they become available later this year. Immediately upon pre-purchase or purchase of the Expansion Pass, three new treasure chests will appear in the game’s Great Plateau area. One of these treasure chests will contain a shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo that Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the Expansion Pass. The other two will deliver useful items. The first content pack is scheduled to launch this summer, and will include the addition of a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode and a new feature for the in-game map. The second content pack will launch in Holiday 2017, and adds new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story. The Expansion Pass will be available for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game and are identical. Content packs cannot be purchased individually.
 
“The world of Hyrule, which we created for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is so large and vibrant that we wanted to offer more for players to experience within it,” said Nintendo developer Eiji Aonuma, the longtime producer of the series. “With this new Expansion Pass, we hope that fans will play, explore and enjoy the game even more.”
 
Aonuma also created a brief video to share more details about the Expansion Pass. It can be viewed at http://zelda.com/breath-of-the-wild/expansion-pass/.

Remember that Nintendo Switch features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/switch.

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire announced!
February 12, 2017, 03:03:36 AM by Link-NM
Nintendo has just announced a Global Testfire for Splatoon 2! The Special Demo will be playable from March 24 to March 26 on the Nintendo Switch.


The schedules are below:

- March 24:
12:00 - 12:59pm PT
8:00 - 8:59pm PT

- March 25:
4:00 - 4:59am PT
12:00 - 12:59pm PT
8:00 - 8:59pm PT

- March 26:
4:00 - 4:59am PT



Quote from: Press Release
Nintendo Switch Owners Get Free Preview of Splatoon 2 During Global Testfire
A Squid Research Lab special report:

 
The data is in and we can announce our confirmed findings. People who buy the Nintendo Switch system will not only get access to a remarkable new video game system, but they’ll also be able to participate in a special Splatoon 2 preview... Owners with internet access can download a demo version of the Splatoon 2 game that will allow them to battle against opponents around the world in the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event. It’s a way for everyone to investigate the latest in cephalopod warfare months before the game launches!
 
In addition to the Testfire event, Nintendo squid expert and Splatoon 2 producer Hisashi Nogami also confirmed a new way for players to follow the action when the game launches later in the year – a mode that will give players a unique insight into squid behaviors and strategy called Private Battle Spectator View. This breakthrough in squid-observation technology will allow up to two non-players to participate in a Private Battle as camera operators to observe all the action from multiple angles*. Incredible! In addition to this, a new feature called LAN Play will be added to Splatoon 2, allowing up to 10 docked systems – eight players and two spectators – to connect via wired LAN. This feature allows players to create local Private Battle tournaments without the need for an internet connection. Local wireless play is perfect for your regular gaming get-togethers, but LAN Play is where it’s at when you want to organize a serious tournament event with your fellow players.
 
“Two years have passed in this universe since the original Splatoon, and since then, the weapons, maps and characters have evolved. Through the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event this March, players will be able to get a taste of that. There will be more new features to experience in Splatoon 2, so please look forward to more reveals in the future,” noted Mr. Nogami.
 
The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire will give Nintendo Switch owners six chances to play with other owners worldwide during the three-day event. The timing of the event is as follows:
 
March 24
- 12-12:59 p.m. PT / 3-3:59 p.m. ET
- 8-8:59 p.m. PT / 11-11:59 p.m. ET
March 25
- 4-4:59 a.m. PT / 7-7:59 a.m. ET
- 12-12:59 p.m. PT / 3-3:59 p.m. ET
- 8-8:59 p.m. PT / 11-11:59 p.m. ET
March 26
- 4-4:59 a.m. PT / 7-7:59 a.m. ET
All indications are that the content for the Global Testfire will allow players to test four different main weapons, including the new Splat Dualies, as well as remixed versions of the iconic Splat Roller and Splat Charger. Extraordinary!
 
We look forward to sharing additional findings soon, such as when the demo will be available for download in Nintendo eShop.
 
We’re also happy to report that Splatoon 2 will be compatible with Splatoon series amiibo figures and, for the first time in the series, with an upcoming Nintendo Switch app for smart devices that enhances online play. This app will connect to the game and allow players to set play appointments with friends and teammates who have been added to their Nintendo Switch friend list or via their social media accounts. It also allows players to match up with those friends directly in the game or voice chat with them via their smart device. For example, during a Private Battle, players can voice chat with all of their connected friends when they divide into teams, but once teams are set, voice chat is switched to communication only between teammates on the same team.
 
In order to use this app, players need to link their Nintendo Account to their Nintendo Switch system and have a smart device capable of in-game voice chat. Online features will require a paid subscription. Data fees may apply. More details will be announced at a later date.
 
Nintendo Switch launches March 3 at a suggested retail price of $299.99. For more information about Nintendo Switch, visit http://www.nintendo.com/switch. Splatoon 2 is scheduled to launch this summer. For more information about the game, visit http://splatoon2.nintendo.com/.
 
*Additional consoles are required. Sold separately.
