What’s New, Nintendo? (Week of 4/11)

Hello again, and welcome to another week of what happened in the world of Nintendo last week, and what’s coming to Switch this next week. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much news in the world of Nintendo, but we did get a quick Switch 14.1.0 update. Let’s get to the stories though!

Friday 4-8 was supposed to be the release of Advance Wars 1+2 Reboot Camp, but given the current climate of the world, Nintendo decided to delay the games release until further notice. However, some gamers who had it pre downloaded to their Switch were able to play it last Friday, Nintendo has since fixed the “issue” and made the game unable to play again.

Over the weekend, Square Enix had a Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary Trailer, and to everyone’s surprise there was a teaser for Kingdom Hearts 4! There’s loads of speculation going already, but the big piece of speculation I’m interested in is seeing if Star Wars will now be a part of the KH universe now that Disney owns the rights. Check out the trailer below!

That’s a wrap for news and rumors, now let’s take a look at the upcoming games this week! Oh, and don’t forget to check out our review of Imp of the Sun!
