Wii U photography horror Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water heading to Switch

Nintendo is resurrecting beloved picture-snapping horror series Project Zero for Switch, bringing the series' most recent instalment - Wii U's Maiden of Black Water - over to the console later this year.

Released back in 2015, Maiden of Black Water is the fifth main entry in the acclaimed survival horror Project Zero series (known as Fatal Frame in the US) and once again arms players with a magic camera that can be used battle hostile spirits - by taking their picture, which is considerably more unnerving than it might sound.

Project Zero's first three entries are brilliant (and genuinely terrifying) survival horror offerings. Unfortunately, Maiden of the Black Water - set in the fictional Hikami Mountain, infamous for its suicides and ghostly goings-on - is a bit of a dud.

If you fancy a tour through some of Mario Party's back catalogue, well, Mario Party Superstars sounds like just the ticket - and it's arriving this October.

The game was announced as part of today's Nintendo E3 Direct, and promises a whirlwind ride through some classic Mario Party games. It's somewhere between a new Mario Party title and remake, essentially mixing elements of previous games into a new collection. This includes five classic Mario Party boards from the N64 era, with boards such as Peach's Birthday Cake and Space Land making a reappearance.

Mario Party Superstars also promises a bunch of minigames from the series' catalogue - 100 in total, in fact - along with the usual mix of zany board events. All the minigames support button controls.

Advance Wars 1+2 remakes announced for Switch

Remember Advance Wars? Nintendo's much-loved and long-neglected turn-based strategy series? While it's making a very long awaited return in the form of a two-game remaster for Switch.

Title Advance Wars 1+2: Re-boot Camp, the surprise bundle features 3D remakes - "reimagined and rebuilt from the ground-up" - of the original Advance Wars and its sequel Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising (which originally released on Gameboy Advance in 2001 and 2003 respectively), which should make long-starved series fans very happy indeed. Although obviously not quite as happy as if it had been a brand-new game.

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-boot Camp is coming to Switch later this year on 3rd December.
