Nintendo Adds a Limited Video Capture Feature to Switch October 19, 2017

Nintendo has just released a major system update for the Nintendo Switch.  Everyone has been making a big deal about the system’s new profile transfer functionality, but Nintendo has one more trick up their sleeves, you can now capture in-game video and upload it online!  Here’s how it works:

Currently, the Switch’s video capture feature can only record up to 30 seconds of gameplay from four specific titles, and that gameplay can only be posted on services like Facebook and Twitter but this is a big start.  The four titles supported by this feature include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and ARMS.  Hopefully, this functionality will be improved and expanded in time.

Just want to put this here. Makes a lot more sense than showing it during Monday Night Football, don’t you think?

Yesterday, Nintendo hosted the most important sporting event of the year, the Nintendo World Championships 2017.  In it, twenty-four of the best Nintendo players in the world got together to compete in a slew of different games from across Nintendo’s illustrious history.  Nintendo World Champion 2015 John Numbers was also back to defend his title against a whole new group of competitors in New York City. The only game we knew for sure would be played was Metroid: Samus Returns on the Nintendo 3DS, any others would have been a surprise.

In case you missed any part of the event, Nintendo was nice enough to archive the entire competition on their official YouTube Channel. Watch and enjoy!

Pokemon: I Choose You -Full Theatrical Trailer October 5, 2017

When I was a kid, the release of Pokémon: The First Movie was truly an event.  While a new animated Pokémon film has been released nearly every year since then, the films have not gotten a wide theatrical release since the fourth movie, and the new films would either be released on home video or television. This year, that policy will change as The Pokémon Company plans to release the next Pokémon film in theatres for a limited time.

Take a look at the full trailer for the next major animated Pokémon film, Pokémon: I Choose You.

Pokémon: I Choose You is coming to theaters for a limited engagement on November 5th and 6th. Check with your local theaters for ticket availability.
