Massive News: New Capcom Switch Game | Nintendo Switch Online Details | Nyko Switch Lawsuit
Rumour: Capcom Has Listed An Unnamed 'Action/Adventure' Game For E3 2018 According to the post, the game is listed as an 'Action/Adventure' title, one that will supposedly be coming to PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. And, interestingly, not for PS4. Of course, this could be an unfounded rumour, but if true it could mean Switch is getting a new piece of software that isn't Resident Evil or Street Fighter. With Monster Hunter World having already hit PC and Xbox One already, it also seems unlikely to be anything from the MH universe. E3 2018 runs from 12th June - 14th June 2018.
Nintendo Switch Online Release Date and Price
Nintendo recently revealed that the online service for the Nintendo Switch can be paid for in three ways. Online for Switch will cost $20 a year, $4 for a one-month subscription, or $8 for a three-month long subscription plan.
However, Nintendo also announced that playing Switch games online would be free until the payment model actually launches. Nintendo Switch Online Service is set to launch properly in September 2018. This means that players can take full advantage of the online functionality in games like Splatoon 2 before having to pay for the online features from September, 2018.
Nintendo Switch Virtual Console, Free Classic Games
The traditional Virtual Console feature on past Nintendo consoles hasn’t arrived for Switch yet, and could possibly be replaced by something new (although we expect a proper Virtual Console announcement is coming). Under this new online subscription model for the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo will allow a selection of classic games to be played by those who pay for the subscription.
Nintendo has stated that those who pay for the Nintendo Switch Online will be able to access a “wide variety of classic games”, with a few of these games having been confirmed as Super Mario Bros. 3, Balloon Fight, and Dr. Mario. Nintendo’s previous plan was to give away one different classic game every month. Nintendo’s new plan will provide a wide variety of games at once, with Nintendo Switch Online subscribers able to play as many as they want.
"Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will have ongoing access to a library of classic games with added online play," a Nintendo spokesperson told Kotaku. "Users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription."
Switch owner Michael Skiathitis has filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. district court of central California against peripheral manufacturer Nyko after one of the company's docks bricked his console.
Nyko's docks proved popular upon release as they were smaller and cheaper than the real thing, but after the Switch 5.0 update, it was discovered that third-party docks like Nyko's were "bricking" consoles.
Skiathitis found that his Nyko dock - purchased at a Walmart in Jacksonville, Florida - bricked his console shortly after purchase. He sent the console to Nintendo for repair in April and duly informed Nyko about the issue. Because save data is tied to the console on a hardware level, he'll most likely have lost all of his progress.
