Reminder: Don't Buy The Wrong Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass

Reminder: Don't Buy The Wrong Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass

The Pokémon Sword Expansion pass is for Pokémon Sword and not Shield. Vice versa is also true. If you buy one, you cannot play it on the other.

Today, Nintendo Support (via Hachima) warned people about confusing the two and making the incorrect purchase.

Nintendo Support added that if you simply purchase Expansion Pass in the game menu screen’s lower right banner, you will purchase the...

A Delightful Tour Of Danny Trejo's Animal Crossing Island

In the first episode of “Danny’s Diary,” a new segment in Gary Whitta’s star-studded in-game talk show Animal Talking, see the power of Animal Crossing: New Horizons transform one of Hollywood’s toughest, most intimidating actors into an adorable butterfly-collecting islander.

Yeah, I just called Danny “Machete” Trejo adorable, and for good reason. It’s the only word to describe the gruff...

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Makes An Excellent Third Impression

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Makes An Excellent Third Impression

It’s hard not to focus on Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition’s upgraded graphics. The Switch version’s crisp characters and updated textures are far removed from the washed-out, muddy visuals of the Wii original. But it’s the little quality-of-life adjustments to this enhanced version of Monolith Soft’s open world action RPG that are making my third playthrough so much more enjoyable...

Some Tips For Animal Crossing: New Horizons' May Day Maze

Some Tips For Animal Crossing: New Horizons' May Day Maze

Historically, May Day is a holiday with deep-seated spiritual roots, but you may know it more from its modern reinvention as International Workers’ Day. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is lorded over by the most insidiously craven capitalist in animalkind, but Tom Nook is still using the occasion to let players earn some Bells by navigating a hedge maze.

New Horizons has its own May Day-themed...

Moving Out, A Game About Trashing Someone's House

Moving Out, A Game About Trashing Someone's House

Moving Out is a new game out this week on PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s a singleplayer or co-op experience, full of wacky arm-bending and physics gags, and depending on how you’re involved with the process is also an eerily accurate simulation of the art of moving house.

I recently left my apartment in northern California and drove a U-Haul full of my belongings...

Here’s How To Exhibit Your Own Photos In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Here’s How To Exhibit Your Own Photos In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Fine art is all the rage in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Last week, players of Nintendo’s adaptation of Animal Farm were introduced to an in-game art dealer (

in the form of a somewhat fraudulent fox ). And in the real world, museums are transforming art from their collections into New Horizons designs.

But true connoisseurs know that the world’s finest art isn’t some suprematist composition...

You Can Download Art From A Real Museum In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Fact: Every Animal Crossing: New Horizons resident wants a killer art collection. Last week, Nintendo’s pastel capitalist vacation sim introduced its players to a new way to acquire great art: the scurrilous rube, Jolly Redd.

This Fantastic Mr. Fox reject was added to New Horizons as part of a

sweeping Earth Day update . A traveling salesman, Redd randomly shows up on a shoddy boat (the...

Streets Of Rage 4: The Kotaku Review

Streets Of Rage 4: The Kotaku Review

When Streets of Rage 4 was first announced, I was wildly skeptical. The little I saw didn’t immediately live up to expectations I’d developed for a 2D brawler series that had its last official last entry in 1994. I feel a lot better about it now. I’ve played Streets of Rage 4 for 15 hours, and, I’ve fallen in love with it.

This game is magnificent. Whether you’re a fan of the originals or a...

It’s not easy to find

disposable face masks in Japan. The ones issued by the government are too small. And so, people in Japan have been making their own. Some have been doing so in the most creative fashion.

How To (Hopefully) Not Get Scammed By Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Sketchy Art Dealer

How To (Hopefully) Not Get Scammed By Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Sketchy Art Dealer

Redd is one part of

New Horizons’ Earth Day update , which started rolling out new events and characters earlier today. In this first wave, Redd joins Lief, a traveling...

Nintendo Slashes Interest Rates In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing’s latest update cuts the amount of money players can earn just by letting all of their bells sit in the bank, a lesson to all you hoarders out there to get out and spend.

The news came by way of a letter from Tom Nook. It was waiting in players’ mailboxes following last night’s update, which 

adds new characters and seasonal events . “We are writing to inform you that we have...

The Trials Of Mana Remake Proves Square Enix Can Faithfully Redo A Classic '90s RPG

The Trials Of Mana Remake Proves Square Enix Can Faithfully Redo A Classic '90s RPG

The second high-definition remake of a 90s-era Square Enix role-playing game coming out this month is much more faithful to the original than Final Fantasy VII. Beneath Trials of Mana’s cartoonish 3D makeover and questionable voice acting, it’s the same simple, satisfying action RPG it’s always been.

Trials of Mana began as Seiken Densetsu 3, the 1995 Super Famicom sequel to classic action...

Nintendo Switch Shortage Can Partially Be Blamed On Resellers Using Bots

The current shortage of Nintendo Switch consoles is frustrating many and it seems resellers and bots are partly to blame for the current situation.

Over the last month or so it has become extremely hard to find and buy a Nintendo Switch. Part of the reason it has become so tricky to snag a Switch is a lot of folks are staying home and want to play games like Animal Crossing. But another...
