A few of the 3DS releases excited me, mainly Hey! Pikmin, Bye Bye Boxboy, and Ever Oasis. Payday 2 is a bizarre choice for the Switch. I'm excited for Puyo Puyo Tetris, and I might pick up Monopoly as well as that should be fun and convenient. Maybe Namco Museum too.

I'm guessing that this Direct was mostly intended to get smaller titles out of the way so that they can bring out the big guns at E3. Fingers crossed!

Looks pretty interesting. I'd probably rather just have Hyper Light Drifter on the Switch (ooooo, now I want that), but that doesn't look bad.

At 500 yen (around $4.50), that's not too bad. I would like to know how long it is, as it looks like something up my alley.

I have that case and recommend it, but I would not feel good about putting the charging cable into it. A more compact option could easily fit in its accessory pouch though.

Reddit has reports of framerate issues towards the end levels of Mr Shifty, but (1) the CEO of TinyBuild showed up in that thread and confirmed that they're working on a patch now, and (2) I played the first 7 levels tonight and absolutely had a great time.

So maybe pick your platform based on performance or your trust in their ability to patch it up, but the game is solid fun.

If you want a stand for your undocked Switch, I can happily recommend this guy.

It's in stock (which the official Hori stand was not), cradles the Switch comfortably with nice soft rubber feet, folds flat for travel, has very firm but totally adjustable hinges, feels stable when set up and holding the unit, and has a bottom space for the charging cable if you need to charge while you play. A+.

Tilt-wise, yes, fully adjustable. Height-wise, no, it doesn't extend.

I managed to S rank all four worlds in Graceful Explosion Machine, so I went ahead and picked up Mr. Shifty last night.

A new sysyem update (2.2.0) is available. Like the last one, it provides "General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience".

Apparently Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is very, very good.

Sounds like a good potential fit for portable side-scrollery, for those done with Shovel Knight or wanting variety.

*From a recent twitch stream, some new details regarding Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition were revealed, including the size of the world, it will run at 60fps, and due to Switch being easy to delevop for, it will be easy to provide the same updates as the other versions.

While another feature won't be available at launch, WiiU owners will be able to transfer their worlds to the Switch version down the road. (Nintendo Everything; sourced from NeoGaf. Twitch stream)

*The first major update for Super Bomberman R is now live (version 1.3). Here are the following patch notes: (Nintendo Everything)

Quote:
*Four new VS stages have been added to the shop (White Cross, Lagoon, Max Speed, Power Zone).

*Two new series of accessories have been added to the shop (Crowns, Bombs).

*The frame rate of the entire game has been improved. We also made slight adjustments and improved the controls as well.

*Less lags are likelier to happen when every participant in the Online Battle have good network connection.
(If you want to find opponents with good connection, set Other > Basic Settings > Network Settings to the very left.)

*Made it possible to press L/R to change the inclination of he map in the Story Mode. Other > Basing Settings will also allow you to fix the camera position as well.

*You can now choose the strength of the COM on the Multiplayer Battle Mode.

*The strength of the Five Dastardly Bombers on the Story Mode have been adjusted.

*The difficulties of Beginner and Normal have been reduced, making it easier to beat them.

*Adjusted the heights and slopes on some maps to improve the visibility.

*If you continue a certain number of times in the Story Mode, you will be able to continue without paying anymore gems.

*Changed the BP (Battle Point) increase/decrease rate for the League Battle.

*Fixed other various small bugs.
