Reggie Fils-Aime fondly looks back on the SNES, says he had over 80 games in his collection

I'm going to need a rundown of that collection, Reggie

Reggie Fils-Aime was on-hand at The Game Awards 2019, where he took to the stage to give a speech about indie games. Hollywood Reporter managed to snag Reggie for a moment and got him to talk about his first Nintendo platform, which was the SNES. Check out what Reggie had to say about the SNES below.

"My first system was the Super Nintendo, so I played Super Mario World — and ended the game with 99 lives — and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I had over 80 games on that system, and I think that helped me with the fans and the company, because I knew the content so well. … For me it's been a part of my growing up. I was with Nintendo of America for 15 years. Now, being able to be like a fan [again] and celebrate this industry is really special."

Heavy metal slasher Down to Hell comes to Switch on Dec. 23rd, 2019

Get ready for a Hell of a trip

On December 23 this year a new slasher, Down to Hell, is planned for release on Nintendo Switch. Created by Red Dev Studio the game stands out with its dynamic combat system, heavy metal soundtrack and unique stylistics. Earlier the title was released on PC.

At the end of August this year Down to Hell debuted on PC. Ultimate Games S.A. is responsible for the game’s conversion and digital distribution.

Down to Hell tells the story of an unnamed knight who faces a world full of chaos and demonic creatures. This production by Red Dev Studio focuses on combat – the player can use basic weak (fast) and strong (free) attacks. Blows can be combined in longer sequences and additional opportunities are given by spells and special moves. The creators of Down to Hell have also prepared a retort system, thanks to which it is possible to repel some attacks.

The game offers a total of two different chapters in which there will be lots of clashes with different creatures and bosses (including the demonic bug Crimson and the devilish maiden Solitude). As the game creators point out, Down to Hell takes on average about 3 hours to complete.

“Down to Hell is a slasher with an unforgettable atmosphere. The darkness of the game is additionally enhanced by the stylized graphic design. The soundtrack that includes works by Polish heavy metal bands Decapitated and Koronal also play a large role” says CEO Ultimate Games S.A., Mateusz Zawadzki.

The main features of Down to Hell:

fast and dynamic fight;
unique bosses;
heavy and dark atmosphere;
hand-drawn film interludes;
heavy metal soundtrack (including Decapitated and Koronal).

The launch date of Down to Hell on Nintendo Switch is set for December 23, 2019.

Switch tribute pops up in Dr. Stone anime

Doctor, doctor, give me the Switch!

No joke, Dr. Stone is an anime I just found out about last night, and I added it to the list of shows I need to watch. I read a feature about the anime, which was filled with glowing praise. Turns out I already have another reason to check the show out!

The season finale of Dr. Stone snuck in a pretty direct reference to the Switch, as you can see in the spot above. It appears to be paired with a PS4-style controller, so Sony gets some love too.

Paramount releasing a Sonic the Hedgehog movie theater etiquette advertisement

Sonic says talking during the movie is no good

Usually people in movie theaters nowadays are pretty good about getting quiet when the movie comes on, but some people still need to be reminded of basic rules of the theater-going experience. Soon enough, movie audiences will have a helpful reminder on how to act at the movies thanks to Sonic.

A list of recently-rated trailers, commmercials, and PSAs has added a listing for a Sonic The Hedgehog "Etiquette No Talking/Texting" spot, which will most likely play in theaters, rather than on TV. We can't be absolutely sure of that, but it wouldn't make much sense for this to air on TV. The spot was rated on Dec. 9th, 2019, so we should see it pop up in theaters any day now.
