Nintendo continues to promote Summer activities with their games and this time is no different. In this new Nintendo Switch Summer 2024 commercial, you can see how a family happily shares their vacation time enjoying some games like Super Mario Wonder and the newly released Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition.

What games will you be enjoying during your free time? Let us know below!


Skeleton Crew Studio and Devolver Digital have announced a new game that’s coming to Switch called Forestrike, a tactical kung fu game where repetition is the key to success.

In Forestrike you play as a martial artist, named Yu, and you embark on a journey across the country to free the Emperor from an evil Admiral’s influence. Adopting techniques from one of five unique Masters, each battle presents a puzzle that must be solved using your mind as well as your fists.

Yu encounters many foes on his path to the capital, and he is always outnumbered, but he has a secret weapon: the Foresight, a meditative technique that allows him to mentally perceive fights over and over until he finds a sequence of movements that allows him to overcome the odds.

Once ready, our hero must fight in reality, where losing means starting everything over, but progress is permanent. Winning doesn’t always mean he will emerge from each encounter unscathed, but the further he travels, the stronger he will become.

No release date has been announced as of now, but we do know it’s coming on 2025. We’ll have to wait and see for more information on the game.

Today, the Pokémon Company International announced that exciting in-game events and activities are now available to mark the third anniversary of Pokémon UNITE on both Nintendo Switch™ systems and mobile devices.

Fan-favorite Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh makes its Pokémon UNITE debut today as a ranged Defender. Ho-Oh’s exciting Ability, Regenerator, allows it to gradually recover HP if it does not take damage from Pokémon on the opposing team for a set amount of time.

Ho-Oh’s moves will keep players on their toes the entire match, and its Unite Move, Rekindling Flame, allows it to spread its wings wide and consume all the Aeos energy in its possession to revive knocked-out allied Pokémon. The more Aeos energy Ho-Oh consumes, the more ally Pokémon are revived and returned to battle.

Time-Limited Events to Celebrate Three Years of Pokémon UNITE

Trainers can take part in a host of thrilling activities to celebrate three years of Pokémon UNITE, including:

Ho-Oh Commemorative Event (From July 19 at 00:00 UTC to August 11 at 23:59 UTC) – Trainers can obtain one free die each day during the event period. Roll the die to advance a number of spaces on a game board, then complete the corresponding mission on space you land on to be able to roll another die. Trainers who collect 1000 Divine Forest coins can exchange these coins for Ho-Oh’s Unite license!

Panic Parade Revival (From July 19 at 00:00 UTC to September 4 at 23:59 UTC) – The thrilling tower-defense game mode returns! Protect Tinkaton from an onslaught of attacks from advancing wild Pokémon. Some Pokémon can even be called back to provide a quick burst of help to turn the tide of battle!

Charizard Unite License Distribution (From July 19 at 00:00 UTC to September 2 at 23:59 UTC) – Trainers can obtain either a Charizard-themed hat fashion item, Charizard’s Unite license, or 100 Aeos coins the first time they log in during the event period. Only one of these three choices can be obtained per account log-in during the event period.

New Battle Pass (From July 21 at 00:00 UTC to September 4 23:59 UTC) – This latest Battle Pass is themed around black flames. Trainers can celebrate Pokémon UNITE’s anniversary in style and obtain the regal Dark Lord Style: Charizard holowear by purchasing the premium pass and levelling up.

Three new titles are joining the GBA line-up for Nintendo Switch Online members: Densetsu no Starfy 1, 2, and 3!

These three games are available now for members of the online service. Please note the these games are not translated to English.

Dive into a trio of colorful action games starring Starfy, the legendary star-shaped hero, in Densetsu no Starfy, Densetsu no Starfy 2 and Densetsu no Starfy 3. Previously only available in Japan, these titles are joining the Game Boy™ Advance – Nintendo Switch Online library, and are available for all Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members to play starting today!

Densetsu is the Japanese word for legend, and Starfy – Prince of Pufftop Kingdom, golden-hearted (and slightly clumsy) hero and frequent aquatic explorer – is ready to show you what makes him so legendary! Join Starfy, his sister Starly and his gruff best friend Moe for a swimmingly slapstick trilogy of games full of vibrant action and adventure, all originally available on the Game Boy Advance system:

Densetsu no Starfy – No sleep ’til Pufftop! A sudden storm has caused Starfy, prince of the floating sky kingdom Pufftop, to plummet from his lofty home into the sea below. Luckily, he is rescued by an old lobster named Lobber who sets the adorable hero on a grand journey back to Pufftop. The way home is full of dangers, though, and Starfy will need to employ a variety of abilities – including Star Spin and Glide – and vehicles like the mighty Mole Tank, to overcome the challenges that await. The legend begins here!

Densetsu no Starfy 2– Help Starfy save his mother and bring peace back to Pufftop Kingdom in this action-packed sequel! Ogura – the villain of the first game – is back to seek vengeance against Starfy, and this time he has Mama Star in his sights. The revenge-driven ruffian ransacks Pufftop and steals away Starfy’s mother in the ensuing kerfuffle, leaving Starfy no choice but to dive head-first into his next adventure. With his best friend Moe in tow and challenges aplenty to face, Starfy has his work cut out for him.

Densetsu no Starfy 3 – Starfy’s sister Starly joins him and Moe for their third adventure on Game Boy Advance! Discover the truth behind the mysterious villain that’s been pulling Ogura’s strings all this time and put a stop to their nefarious plans once and for all. Spin and float with the starry siblings and save the day across action-filled stages with the help of familiar friends, including … Wario?! You read that right: Wario crosses paths with Starfy and Starly to help them through the Undersea Ruins in Stage 8 (while hunting for treasure, of course), so be sure to check it out. Go, Starfy and Starly, go!
