Pokémon: Detective Pikachu was first announced as a new type of Pokémon game. In it, you play a young detective who works with a unique talking Pikachu to solve crimes. This game was a very big deal, as there’s been talk a live-action movie based on the game is in the works starring Danny DeVito as the Pikachu. However, the game was restricted to a Japan-only release and with the amount of dialog in the game, it was unlikely the game would get an international release. Earlier today, The Pokémon Company released this trailer, enjoy!

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS systems March 2018.

Welcome back to Maniac’s Kitchen, where we take a look at food for gamers! Super Mario Cereal is out and we were lucky enough to get our hands on a box! Unlike previous children’s cereals where you’ll find a prize inside the box, for Super Mario Cereal, the prize is the box. Each box of Super Mario Cereal includes an exclusive Amiibo card printed inside the game box, which you can use in the game Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch.

So how’s it taste and is the Amiibo worth it? Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Super Mario Odyssey is out now exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

Cycle Across Kanto – New Kickstarter Documentary Enters Final Days January 9, 2018

I felt the very first Pokémon game was so well designed, it had to be based on a real place, and it turns out I was right. The very first region players explored, now referred to as Kanto, actually exists in Japan. Now, a bunch of filmmakers from the YouTube Channel Good Blood are planning to do something about it! Here’s their official trailer:

That’s right, a group of professional filmmakers and athletes plan to cycle all the way across Kanto! I’m an enormous fan of travelogues, nature documentaries, History Channel, and Behind the Scenes looks at the gaming industry. This project seems like it was tailored just for me! If you’re interested in supporting the project, you can back it on their official Kickstarter as it is entering the final two weeks of funding!

Any child who played the original Pokémon games back in the day found a deeply fleshed out game world they could explore on their Game Boy handheld. It’s in-game economy, social hierarchy, and government closely reflected the real world, making the game’s story truly inspiring. In fact, if you’d like to read more about it, we did a pretty in-depth research essay into the Pokémon World you can read right here.

Who doesn’t love Ramen? Like most gamers, we love Ramen Noodles over here, and have I got some great news to share with my fellow ramen eaters! Over the past few years, Square Enix has partnered with Nissin foods, makers of Cup Noodles, to cross promote Cup Noodles with their recent and upcoming Final Fantasy games.

Now, in anticipation of the release of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT later this month, Nissin is offering exclusive DLC to players who buy specially marked Cup Noodles. You can visit this website to read all the details of the promotion! Don’t forget to save your sales receipt!

We’ll be taking a closer look at Cup Noodles later this week. I’m sure I don’t need to remind Final Fantasy XV players that the Cup Noodles hat is downloadable for free right now from the Xbox One and PS4 digital marketplaces.

Final Fantasy XV is out now for Xbox One and PS4. It is coming to PC in early 2018. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is coming exclusively to the PS4 at the end of January 2018.

The Nintendo Switch shipped with only 32GB of internal memory, which isn’t a lot, especially if you plan to purchase most of your games through the Nintendo eShop. However, its memory can be upgraded with a UHS-I MicroSD card with a transfer speed minimum of 60MB/s.

How do you upgrade it and what can you expect when you do? For the purposes of this video we will be performing the upgrade with a 64GB MicroSDXC card. Watch and find out what happens. Make sure your Switch is updated with its most recent system software, in tablet mode, and completely turned off before performing this procedure.
