All aboard.
Issue 84 — June 10, 2018
Switch JoyCon Grip

Hi, here's issue #84 of Switch Weekly, with plenty of great Nintendo links worth checking out.

E3 is here, and Nintendo will be showing off a whole load of Smash Bros (and hopefully a few surprises). Links below with details on how you can watch Nintendo's presentation live, and if you can't I'll have a full round-up here next weekend.

As for me — well, I've been playing a ton of Yoku's Island Express. It came out a few weeks ago, and it's a blast. Here's a review if you want to know more. Other than that I've been pecking away at trying to improve my Ikaruga score.

Anyway, all the usual news and upcoming releases are below. Any comments, just hit reply and I'll see it. As ever, thanks for reading and enjoy E3!
Cheers, Chris.

Fortnite is coming so Nintendo really needs to sort out its voice chat problem
I've grumbled about Nintendo's approach to voice chat on the Switch before, so it will come as no surprise to learn I found myself nodding along to a lot of this.

VIDEOHands-on: Super Mario Galaxy at 1080p on Nintendo's Wii emulator
This is curious: Players in China can now play Mario on the Nvidia Sheild. The Sheild hardware has the very same Tegra X1 processor as the Switch. So here's a solid demo of Wii emulation, that would be more than suitable on the Switch. Yes please. 🙂
