Nintendo Switch getting special edition Pokemon hardware bundles on November 16th

Nintendo announced today that it would be releasing special edition Pikachu & Eevee Switch bundle on November 16th to accompany the games release on the platform.

Either Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Let’s Go, Eevee! can be chosen by the buyer to be pre-installed on the console.

Whichever game they may decide, the console itself will look the same, with a fabulously etched Pikachu and Eevee on the base station and the console itself, that seamlessly blend into both a brown and yellow Joy-Con, respectively.

The bundle will also include the Poke Ball Plus controller as an added bonus.

Nintendo have said no word on official pricing at this juncture.

Everybody’s Golf for PSVR announced at Tokyo Game Show for a 2019 release

Exciting news for fans of PSVR and/or decent golfing games!

Sony has announced Everybody’s Golf will be coming with a full PSVR title next year on the popular VR headset.

Judging from the footage, it’s a true to the original title with the usual cutesy spin on the golfing game genre, however fully implemented with a virtual reality upgrade.

It actually makes perfect sense if you think about it…

Everybody’s Golf has always focussed more on fun over realism, and a stylized cartoon aesthetic over the usual EA Sports style graphics.

These lower poly images would make a far easier transition to virtual reality and help maintain a smoother frame rate at the same time.

We’re really excited to see how this progresses.

PSVR has been sorely lacking a decent golf game, with the less-than-stellar previous entries of titles like 100ft Robot Golf and Moonshot Galaxy.

This sounds like the perfect solution.

Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience announced this holiday for PSVR

Today at Tokyo Game Show Sony announced a special treat for VR fans this holiday season – Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience.

Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience looks as though it will take its cue from one of the other previous exclusive VR treats Sony has given its headset, The Last Guardian: VR Experience, in-so-far as it won’t be a full title, but rather a jaunty, shorter *experience* in which you will probably meet a few cool characters from both the Disney and Final Fantasy sides of the series, and help them perform a few simple, but fun-in-VR tasks.

One thing is for sure, judging by the trailer, you definitely get to swing a Keyblade around.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Is Coming To The PS4 And Nintendo Switch!

Today at the Tokyo Game Show Sony announced that the fan-favorite, mainline Final Fantasy spin off – Crystal Chronicles – was getting a fully remastered release on its platform.

For a few moments there, grumpier gamers took to twitter to decry “Why not Switch?”

Luckily, their fears were satiated when merely an hour or so later, Nintendo promptly pointed out that they were getting the “practically made for their console” title too!

Crystal Chronicles was originally released back in 2003 for Gamecube in Japan, with a western release that followed.

Echoing history, there has not been an official “western version” announcement yet, however if Nintendo and Sony like the idea of printing money – we’re sure it’s not too far behind.

Check the complete remastered trailer above and let us know your thoughts!
