Image: Nintendo LifeIt’s five years to the day since Jupiter’s long-running puzzle series first made the jump to Switch with Picross S, and please forgive us if we get a little nostalgic. With the eighth entry in the S saga coming to the Switch eShop in a matter of hours, there’s no denying that each new entry amounts to a fresh DLC pack featuring dozens of new nonograms to dive into, yet we’ve got real affection for this most dependable of puzzlers. Given its quality and the calm mood it puts us in, we’ll happily lap up another selection of…

Subscribe to Nintendo Life on YouTube Coming from indie developer Three Eyed Games, A Winding Path will see you thrown into a fantasy world in which the rain has ceased to fall, the rivers are drying up and the crops are failing — sounds pleasant, right? Fortunately, this monochrome adventure is all about putting this world right, and publisher Flynn’s Arcade has announced that you will be able to undertake this planet-saving mission on Switch from October 27th. A bleak set-up like this is usually conveyed through a similarly bleak art style, awash with shadow and darkness. Three Eyed Games…

Image: NintendoNintendo has officially ended support for Super Mario Maker 2, but there’s still a passionate fanbase out there taking the game to the next level. One player, in particular, who never left the latest entry was Nintendo fan and Twitter user @MetroidMike64. This talented individual has gone to the extent of releasing ‘Super Mario Bros. 5’. Of course, it’s all unofficial, but it’s still quite the feat. “I urge you to dust off your copy of Super Mario Maker 2 and try out my Super World. I’ve poured lots of blood, sweat and tears into this over the past…

Image: Hello GamesOne of the many titles coming to the Nintendo Switch next month is the ambitious space epic No Man’s Sky. The release of the game lines up with the 4.0 update, and if you’re wondering what else might be included, it seems the Switch version is “the focus” of this next game update. Hello Games’ founder Sean Murray clarified this in a series of tweets: “No Man’s Sky Switch is releasing on Oct 7th – that’s really soon. Switch is our next big release and marks the moment No Man’s Sky ticks over to version 4.0. Switch is…

Captured on Nintendo Switch (Docked)It’s said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and if that is indeed the case, then Airoheart is one of the most sycophantic releases on the Switch today. There’s certainly no shortage of ‘Zelda-likes’ available on the console, but this is a game that stretches the term “inspired by” to its absolute limits, as it finds as many ways as possible to be The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past without actually tempting Nintendo into releasing its famed copyright ninjas for damage control. Consequently, fans of that top-down Zelda style will no…

A follow-up rumour then suggested the game would be arriving on November 8th.

Image: Nintendo / RareToo many GameCube games are turning 20 at the moment, and it’s making us feel old. But, on the plus side, it’s also making us feel nostalgic. Star Fox Adventures is the latest GameCube game to hit the big two-zero today, 23rd September, in North America. And Star Fox’s character designer Takaya Imamura is celebrating with some brand new art. The Nintendo legend — who retired from the company last year — shared some new art of Krystal, one of Star Fox Adventures’ new characters who would go on to join Fox McCloud and the team in…

Subscribe to Nintendo Life on YouTube If you are unfortunate enough to have not graced Twitter in the past 24 hours (we don’t necessarily blame you), then you probably will have missed the meteoric rise of Trombone Champ, and with it’s Mii-style visuals, it had us feeling a bit reminiscent. This Guitar Hero-inspired game from Holy Wow Studios is an absolute hoot (or should we say toot?) and the internet has gone wild for videos of people butchering musical classics such as Beethoven’s ‘Fifth Symphony’ and the national anthem for both the UK and US. Still confused as to why…
