"We haven’t even made the full library of NES games available yet".
Nintendo does not appear to be in any rush to revive its classic games collection on the Switch. In fact, the digital NES library only went live in September and the system is now nearly two years old. It's left fans hungry for more, after previous systems - since the Wii Virtual Console era - have offered access to Nintendo's larger retro library. This includes hits from the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64, along with selections from plenty of other iconic generations.

Switching it up.
is a competent fighter but its "busty and over-sexualized characters might not be to everyone's taste in 2018" - as we noted in our September review of the game. SNK Producer Yasuyuki Oda even admit the fanbase was divided - with some delving deep into the game's fighting systems and others not wanting to consider it at all due to the concept.
What really amazed Oda-san was how audiences reacted to Terry Bogard being transformed into a "" in the spiritual successor to SNK Gals' Fighters on Neo Geo Pocket. Apparently, it was the first thing the development team decided about the game, so the element of surprise was never there on their own end. Oda went onto explain how Terry from the series was always planned to become a female, due to his style, design, and identity being easy to recognise.

"Mario number one!".
As part of Nintendo's latest financial report, which revealed that the Switch has now , the company released an updated list of its best-selling games for its latest console. Rather than throwing a "number seven will shock you"-style slideshow at you, let's just dive right into the good stuff.
