Is Cuphead going to join the Smash Bros. roster?

Oh man. Cuphead. I’m reluctant to say this owing to the roasting one reviewer received for his inability to play the game… But Cuphead? Yeaahhhh I suck at it. And I’m also not great with Smash Bros., although my brawling skills are gradually improving. So what would happen if Nintendo went out on a limb and combined these two punishingly difficult franchises?! It’s fair […]

Wow, it seems ages since we last had a Nintendo Direct! I think the last ‘general’ one was in September 2018, as the one that followed in November was dedicated to that small indie title known as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has leaked

With less than two weeks to go until the release of the hotly-anticipated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it would appear that a number of super-lucky fans have managed to get hold of the game early.

I think this blog post is going to be more for my benefit than anybody else’s! During its recent Direct, Nintendo shared some new information about the upcoming Spirits Mode that will feature in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I say “new information” – it was technically an announcement of the worst kept secret in the video game industry, as some canny […]

Is a Nintendo Switch PR crisis looming?

Prepare yourselves for a doom-laden post! The sky is falling, Nintendo is going under, we’ll never play a console game again…!! Actually, despite the sensationalist headline, I do intend to ask a legitimate question: Is a Nintendo Switch PR crisis looming? I’m not sure of the answer, but I work on the fringes of the PR world in my day-to-day […]

Is a Special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch bundle on its way?

Could a special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch bundle be on its way this Christmas? This may seem like a strange thing to be speculative – or indeed conspiratorial – about, but there’s nothing the internet likes more than grainy leaked photos of products that haven’t yet been announced. Take a look at this… It’s a photo of a photo, apparently originating […]

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Why Luigi had to die

You know it’s a tough day when video game characters make headlines on BBC News. Last week, Nintendo unceremoniously killed off one of its mascot characters in an act of blood-curdling brutality. Luigi the Italian plumber stared into the jaws of Death – literally – as he was dealt a weighty blow by one of Castlevania‘s most formidable villains. So […]
