Forget The Past, Nintendo's Future Is Focused On New IP And "Staple Series"
Resurrecting forgotten franchises does not appear to be a priority. Would you like to see Nintendo revive some of its older and perhaps lesser-known IPs for the Switch generation? Well, if Shuntaro Furukawa's latest comments are anything to go by, it's probably best not to get your hopes up. During an interview with Nikkei earlier this week, the Nintendo president explained how much of the company's current focus was on "new ideas" and what's next (aka the future).

THQ Nordic's Destroy All Humans remake heading to Switch this summer
THQ Nordic's Destroy All Humans remake heading to Switch this summer
THQ Nordic is bringing the high-gloss extraterrestrial terrorising of last year's Destroy All Humans remake to Switch this summer, with the game set to arrive on 29th June. Developed by Black Forest Games, the Destroy All Humans remake takes the 2005 PS2 and Xbox original - in which evil alien clone Crypto-137 rampages across 1950s Earth, obliterating every man, woman, and bovine in his path - and gives it a gloriously lavish lick of paint. The fundamentals remain the same - meaning on-foot and UFO-bound missions across six large, open levels in which players cause devastation using psychokinetic powers and alien weapons of dubious purpose - but it's all given a fresh lease of life with presentational enhancements including some truly sumptuous visuals.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World remake gets June release date
Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, developer Jankenteam's remake of the much-loved Sega Master System classic, will be making its way to PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch on 24th June. The original Alex Kidd debuted on the Master System three and a half decades ago, back in 1986 (apologies to those out there suddenly feeling very old), and charted the adventures of the titular martial artist as he set off to rescue King Thunder's son. Those adventures manifested as a bright, breezy puzzle-platfomer (one which Eurogamer's Christian Donlan described as "f*cking great" to me earlier, if you're looking for some kind of quality gauge), and Jankenteam's remake will offer all that, plus more.

Review: RetroMania Wrestling - A Faithful But Limited NostalgiaFest
Here comes the plain. The search for a truly wonderful wrestling game on Switch has been one fraught with disappointments, and one that’s still yet to result in an absolute gem. WWE 2K18 was such a shocking, glitch-riddled port that 2K Sports declined to bring the 2019 and 2020 offerings to Nintendo’s console.

Destroy All Humans Brings Its Earth Conquering Madness to Switch on 29th June
Welcome to Earth. Destroy All Humans! was a bit of a cult-classic on the PS2 and original Xbox, adopting some crude humour, chaotic fun and flipping the script on the whole aliens-attacking-Earth narrative; you play as the aliens, and as the name makes clear you're not there to make friends. THQ Nordic and developer Black Forest Games gave it the remaster treatment on assorted systems last Summer, and now it's finally making its way to Nintendo Switch with a 29th June release date.
