Luigi's Mansion 3 Releasing This Halloween

Luigi's Mansion 3 Releasing This Halloween

Nintendo has announced the release date for the highly anticipated Luigi's Mansion 3 and it's just perfect.

Luigi's ghoulish new adventure is set to spook small and big kids alike this Halloween (October 31 for those who didn't have a childhood). I was going to terrify the local neighbourhood kids this Halloween, but now I'll just turn off all the lights and pretend I'm not home.

Luigi's Mansion 3 will see Mario's neglected brother exploring the spooky Last Resort Hotel, this time joined by his ectoplasmic twin Gooigi.

The game features co-op so players can take a friend along for the journey and will be Luigi's first mainline foray on the Nintendo Switch.

I wasn't lucky enough to play the predecessors, so I'm excited to see what made the series so popular.

Resident Evil 5 & 6 Switch Release Dates Confirmed

Resident Evil 5 & 6 Switch Release Dates Confirmed

Announced during E3 this year, Capcom's Resident Evil 5 & Resident Evil 6 now have confirmed release dates for the Nintendo Switch.

The two titles are both set to drop on the eShop on October 29 for $30 USD each. Both games will release with all of their respective DLC content including the Mercenaries and Agent Hunt modes.

As a fan of the series, I found Res Evil 6 to be low points for the mainline entries in the series. Considering both games are available much cheaper on other formats (that dreaded Switch tax is killing us), it's a rather tough sell.

The New DOOM Movie Looks Really Awful

The New DOOM Movie Looks Really Awful

With few exceptions, hardly any movies based on video games have turned out better than average. Hollywood, not content with letting the dead rest, and probably by the power of committee have a new DOOM movie releasing straight to digital and Blu-ray this October.

I've no idea how, but this upcoming film from Universal Pictures looks even worse than the 2005 DOOM, starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Check out the trailer below if you don't believe me!

Nintendo Announces Switch Lite

Following months of rumours and speculation, Nintendo has announced the Nintendo Switch Lite.

The Switch Lite is set to launch on September 20 for the suggested retail price of $359 and will be available in three different colours along with a limited edition Zacian & Zamazenta Pokemon themed variant.

This new smaller console will ditch several features found in the original Switch models, including the detachable Joy-Con controllers and ability to dock the handheld and play on a TV screen. Notably missing from the new model is the superb HD Rumble and motion control functionality, While it's a shame to see these features dropped, Nintendo is promising improved battery life and have also swapped out the horrible directional buttons for a tried-and-true D-pad.
