Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

A little over ten years ago, Ubisoft released a party game spinoff to its popular Rayman series. The spinoff was called Rayman Raving Rabbids, and it would go on to spawn over a dozen Rabbids games for the Wii, Wii U and 3DS, as well as on iOS and Android. The series seemed to have gone dark after 2014, but a new leak reveals that Nintendo and Ubisoft have been working on something big.

Nintendo is going to sell physical game boxes with no game inside

nintendo switch splatoon

As high-speed home internet connections become more and more ubiquitous, and nearly every new video game title is available for digital download at the same time as the physical copies hit stores, gamers have grown increasingly comfortable with the idea of paying for games that they can never actually hold in their hands. But unlike the PC gaming market, where physical game discs are practically unheard of at this point, there are still plenty of console gamers that feel the need to own hard copies of the games they purchase. Now, Nintendo is experimenting with a strange middle ground between digital downloads and physical packaging, and it will soon be selling physical game boxes with no actual game inside.

Nintendo Switch screenshot glitch

This past weekend, some Nintendo Switch owners were surprised to discover dozens of screenshots on their consoles that they didn't remember taking. As it turns out, many of those Switch owners bought the recently released Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, which apparently shipped with a strange bug that caused the Switch to randomly take screenshots on its own. Thankfully, Nintendo is on the case.

Legend of Zelda smartphone game

If there's any Nintendo franchise that holds a candle to Super Mario, it's The Legend of Zelda. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Zelda will reportedly be joining Mario on mobile platforms in the near future.
