Cities: Skylines Available Now For Nintendo Switch

Switch players can now build the metropolis of their dreams. During today's Nintendo Direct, Cities: Skylines was not only announced as a Switch port, it's available right now and can be downloaded in Nintendo's eShop.

This port of the 2015 game that debuted on PC and Mac, and later moved to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, offers the full city-building game, along with the After Dark and Snowfall expansion packs. Much like the Sim City games of old (including the great SNES port!), Cities: Skylines tasks players to map out neighborhoods, industrial districts, and commerce, and provide travel means and power to all of it. If the people of this fictional world like what you are doing, they will move in and raise the value of that property – potentially turning it into a space that houses a skyscraper.

Cities: Skylines is one of those games that you can just lose yourself in. Hours fly by as the world comes into shape. In our review of the PC game, Brian Shea said it establishes a "new gold standard for modern city-builders." Here's hoping the Switch version retains the brilliance of that versions.

Isabelle, the lovable secretary of the Animal Crossing series, is making her way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, this time as a fully playable character.

Although it's not explicitly mentioned in the trailer, Isabelle looks to be an echo fighter rendition of the Villager, though the individual items she uses for each of her moves is slightly different: she's armed with party-poppers, pom-poms, and road signs.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming December 7.

Yoshi's Crafted World Coming To Switch In Spring

After last week's Nintendo Direct was postponed due to the earthquake in Japan, the name Yoshi's Crafted World briefly appeared on Nintendo's website. It turns out that name was accurate, as it was officially announced during today's rescheduled Nintendo Direct presentation.

Yoshi's Crafted World takes place in a world make of items like boxes and paper cups. Though the scenery is different from his more recent woolly outing, the friendly dino's moveset is familiar. Yoshi can gobble enemies and toss eggs at targets. However, that doesn't mean Yoshi doesn't have some new tricks up his sleeve. Yoshi can turn the stage upside down or flip the perspective to access new areas and even play the courses backwards.

Players can also take part in local cooperative play. Yoshi's Crafted World is set to hit Switch in spring.

Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2, XII, Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon, And World Of Final Fantasy Are Coming To Switch In 2019

During today's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that multiple Final Fantasy games in both the mainline series and spinoffs are coming. Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2, Final Fantasy XII, Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon, and World of Final Fantasy (titled Maxima) are coming to Switch, in addition to the previously announced Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition.

This is the first time the PlayStation Final Fantasy games have ever been ported to another console, long-assumed to be locked to Sony hardware due to an early-2000s investment Sony made in Squaresoft. Sony sold off their stake in Square recently, perhaps paving the way for the Japanese RPG giant to release the well-loved Final Fantasy games elsewhere.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima releases November 6, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition releases today, Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon is this winter, while everything else is 2019.

Super Mario Party Is Still A Thing On Switch

Super Mario Party Is Still A Thing On Switch

During Nintendo's recent direct, we saw a few new mini games, such as a dance game that required players to shake the joy-cons, and a co-op game that had players to working together to race down a river and catch fish. The game also allows you to use two Switches, in a mode that we still find confusing. Character specific dice might also help you get the leg up on your friends. Fortunately, all 80 mini-games are brand new.

Super Mario Party releases on October 5. Hopefully it's to a pity party.
