Sometimes waiting is a good thing. Switch owners won’t get their hands on NIS America’s outstanding action RPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana until this summer, but they’ll also never have to experience the shoddy translation that caused the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions to be completely re-localized.

TROPICAL FREEZE?! WOOO!

Keep going, Nintendo! You’re slowly making the Wii U obsolete! Do Super Mario 3d World next, please? And then Smash...

Hyrule Warriors is cool too. I have the 3ds version but you can quickly tell how much better it is on more powerful hardware. As for TWEWY...I’m assuming this is like the mobile port where combat is adjusted for one screen? The twin battle thing in the DS version was, uh, “unique” but kinda annoying.
