The Nintendo Switch is such an amazing innovation in video gaming. However, it is not often that a video game platform has real world applications. The Nintendo Switch is no ordinary gaming platform. Below is a press release about the new Nintendo LABO which is a special DIY kit that you can build physical games that work with the joycons and the screen. One of the kits even transforms you into a robot and as you move the robot on the screen does too. It is a cool way to use the technology of the Nintendo Switch in such a great way.
Nintendo has put together a preview video to show people these new toys or toycons that you can make and then use with the Nintendo Switch. You can watch that below and then read the full press release below that and if you want to purchase these toys I have links to where you can pre-order them.
I received a copy of the new game from Ubisoft called Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for the Nintendo Switch. I got it for free to play with and review. I can legitimately say, I’m loving this game!
I totally love puzzles and complex games. I enjoy trying to figure out problems and the best way to solve them. I also enjoy things that are funny. The game is easy to start playing. You start out with Mario, Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Luigi. These Rabbids characters have crossed into the Mushroom Kingdom and they are causing all sorts of crazy havoc. The Rabbids have discovered an Augmented reality helmet, the SupaMerge. With it they can combine two things and make something new. They can combine a lamp and a flower to make a flower lamp. The Rabbids take the device to the Mushroom World. There the device malfunctions and the kingdom gets torn apart. Your quest it to put things right again. You are also aided by an artificial intelligence named Beep-O.
The Game is filled with all the humor that you would expect from the mischievous Rabbids. Where Mario and his friends are kind to everyone, the Rabbids do their own thing. There is one hilarious moment where Rabbid Peach knocks over a large pile of blocks that a Rabbid Donkey Kong is atop of. As he falls she snaps selfies of him in the background. Rabbid Donkey Kong is a fun boss to take on.
I’ve gone through 9 of the worlds so far and each gets a little harder than the next. Along the way you can upgrade your characters skills, weapons and secondary weapons. My copy of the game came with some DLC content of additional pixel based weapons. Some weapons bounce the baddies off the screen others cover them in sticky honey to prevent them from getting away. The game has already won a ton of awards, too. Take a look at this video. Continue reading Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle→
