The new Nintendo Switch Lite!

Nintendo just announced the new Nintendo Switch Lite!

As you can see from the name it is a “lite” version of Switch, which means that it will be more compact and cheaper (200 dollars in the USA).

The main differences with the original Switch are first it can’t be connected to a TV (so it is an only portable console) and that the controllers are integrated. It is still possible to connect some Joy-con if needed (I can’t see why you would do that, but why not).

The console will get 32gb of space and battery can last for 6h, depending on the game, but it should be a bit more than the original Switch.

The Nintendo Switch Lite will be available September 20th of this year Three colors will be available at start: Yellow, Grey, and Turquoise. And some special edition (Pokemon) will arrive on November 8th.

Nintendo E3: Animal Crossing and Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel

Nintendo just finished their Live and revealed a couple of good news and good games.

Starting with a new Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which takes place on a deserted island. This gives a slightly different experience than previously, with a bit more freedom. And that seems to be the keyword of that game: Freedom and personalization. You will, for example, be able to decorate your home, put your home where you want, with a lot of crafting.

A new trailer has been shown for Astral Chain, which will be available August this year (can’t wait for that one!)

For the fans, they have also shown Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition. Which is a way too long name for a game and will be available for the Nintendo Switch on September 27 of this year.

There was also one more trailer for Fire Emblem: Three houses, for July 26. In this Fire Emblem, you will teach one of three houses, each comprised of students with personality and represented by a royal from one of three territories of Fódlan. As their professor, you must lead your students in their academic lives in a turn-based, tactical RPG battle. Your choice of house will affect where you stand when the continent becomes engulfed in war. After 5 years, former friends will have to face each other on the battlefield.

There was also another trailer for MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order, which I am also really waiting for!

Finally, the last and best, a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been announced. Without a lot of details but a nice first trailer.

In other news:
– Nintendo Switch owners will be happy to learn about the soon to come The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition, and also of Resident Evil 5 and 6.

TT Isle of Man available on Nintendo Switch

Good news for Nintendo Switch owner, BigBen games just announced the released of TT Isle of Man on that console.

The game will be identical to the one already released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC last year.

For those who do not know about it, the TT is real competition, once a year on the Isle of Man (in the UK). Racers drive around the island on a 60.7km track with 264 turns.

The game also offers 9 additional fictional circuits, 40 official motorcycle, and 23 official racers, through a career mode and online races with 8 other players.

 

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order Release Date

This is another game I can’t wait to get since I have seen the first trailer: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. It will be available on July 19 at least in the USA, but the date is the same on the Europe Nintendo Shop. The American website also gives some nice images and info about the game: https://marvelultimatealliance3.nintendo.com/

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is an exclusive Nintendo Switch which is a strange decision. And if you are wondering what is nice about it … well, it will include the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-men and Deadpool. Four people online coop with a story close to the Marvel cinematic universe: getting the Infinity Stones before Thanos and the Black Order (thus the name of the game).

I do not know what else you need to be excited, maybe check on that trailer:
