I’m sorry to say online multiplayer for games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 is now over. Nintendo has just released a major software update for the Nintendo Switch. This new update brings in the new premium Nintendo online service which offers 2-player online NES classic games, and cloud save backups. An updated Nintendo Network smartphone app has also been released on Apple’s App Store and Google Play to make use of the new premium features. Online multiplayer on the Nintendo Switch now costs $20US a year.

Since nobody else has asked it I guess I will. If Nintendo can offer this kind of service for $20 a year as well as offer something similar to Game Pass, what’s Sony and Microsoft’s excuse for charging $60 a year on top of other paid services like Game Pass or PlayStation Now?

Kingdom Hearts III Big Hero 6 TGS 2018 Extended Trailer September 18, 2018

As a child of the 90s, I grew up watching the films we now refer to as part of the Disney Renaissance and it was so heartwarming to experience these worlds myself when I played the first Kingdom Hearts games. However, over the past few years I feel that Disney has entered a new renaissance with their in-house animation studios producing hit after hit like Wreck it Ralph and Big Hero 6. These new classics are being used as the basis for all-new worlds in Kingdom Hearts III.

Today, Square Enix released an extended trailer for their take on the world of Big Hero 6, and if you hadn’t told me I would have believed it was a trailer for the sequel. Better turn the subtitles on because this trailer uses the original Japanese voice over.

Kingdom Hearts III is coming January 2019 to the Xbox One and PS4.

Apple has just released an enormous update for handheld devices. It adds a slew of new features such as enhanced AR, Memoji, Siri shortcuts, and a lot more. If you’re using an older Apple iPhone such as the 6, 7, 8 or X you’ll need to download the update through your device’s software update feature or iTunes. If you’re planning to get a new iPhone such as the XS, it will come with iOS 12 preinstalled.

The update can weigh in at around one and a half gigabytes, so make sure to free up some space on your phone before installing the update.
