Nintendo Switch News and Zelda Breath of the Wild Update

Owners of the Nintendo Switch are now one step closer to enjoying the release of streaming applications. After months of waiting, Nintendo Switch owners based in the United States of America can finally download the Hulu streaming application onto the device. This is hopefully the first step towards a date for YouTube, Amazon Prime, Netflix and BBC iPlayer. In fact, the Switch, based on a September report, is said to be locked and loaded ahead of the launch.

Nintendo Looks Likely to Overtake the Wii

Recent reports suggest that the NintendoSwitch looks set to potentially pass the Wii as far as sales are concerned. The console is on course to have outdistanced the Wii by March of 2023 according to Nomura Securities, an analyst firm.

Reports indicate that the Switch expects to have sold 23 million units over the course of the next fiscal year, and this will rise to 115.8 million by 2023. This is a notable improvement on the Wii, which has sold just over 100 million units.

The Switch is Proving Wildly Successful

Although is still just a prediction, the success of the Nintendo Switch has been incredibly successful since its launch, with some even comparing its rapid rise in terms of popularity to that of the onlinegambling casino scene back in the day.

This comes as no surprise when you take into the account the game roster, which includes the stupendous Super Mario Odyssey and zany Zelda Breath of the Wild. The former has managed to already reach sales of two million, which is astonishing when one remembers that it was only launched at the end of last month! As many as 1.1 million units have been sold in the USA, which makes Super Mario Odyssey the fastest selling Mario game to ever be released in that region.

Free Zelda Breath of the Wild Update

Zelda Breath of the Wild DLC is available now, as fans get brand-new missions and gear. The 1.3.3 update is live on Nintendo Switch, along with free DLC.

This most recent Breath of the Wild update has added an innovative new side quest and outfit to the game, and players are able to unlock Xenoblade Chronicles 2 armour by visiting three locations at night-time and searching for a crimson shooting star. When this mission is completed players will unlock the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 armour set for Link.

This update also provides support for Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions amiibo. The four Champions provide players of the game with a variety of different boosts, ranging from electricity and cold resistance to flame guard and increased swimming speed. It’s certainly not goingto be a flop, and Zelda fans are thrilled with the update.

Nintendo explained that, to assist in familiarising fans with Rex, the main character, before the game properly launches, an additional Side Quest will be made available by means of a free update, in which players can get a Rex costume for Link. The company has also revealed plans to release a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Season Pass, which will add a new Challenge Battle mode, extra items, and an original side-story.

Blu-ray Review “Doctor Who: Deep Breath”

Studio: BBC Home Entertainment
DVD Release Date: September 9, 2014

Episode: 4 out of 5 stars

“Deep Breath” is a big deal since it is the start of season eight for “Doctor Who”, which introduces us to Peter Capaldi taking on the role of the 12th Doctor for the first time. This season premiere was the highest rated Doctor Who season premiere on BBC America ever! Of course everyone is skeptical when a new Doctor takes over but Capaldi, no question, won me over right from the get go. I love his “Scottish” take on the character. I am not sure how he will mess with Clara but I am very open-minded. Nonetheless, this is going to be one hell of a season. Can’t wait to see what they have in store.

Official Premise: When the Doctor arrives in Victorian London he finds a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions. Who is the new Doctor and will Clara’s friendship survive as they embark on a terrifying mission into the heart of an alien conspiracy? The Doctor has changed. It’s time you knew him. Episode marks the beginning of the Twelfth Doctor’s era with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, Jenna Coleman as his companion Clara Oswald, and sees the return of fan favorites the Paternoster Gang — Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) and Strax (Dan Starkey).

The Blu-ray release of “Doctor Who: Deep Breath” is presented in with a fantastic 1080p and an action packed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. The real draw for this release are the exclusive special features, which will most likely not be included in the complete season. “The Real History of Science Fiction: Episode 4, “Time”” looks into the history of science fiction with Steven Moffat, David Tennant, Karen Gillan, and Neil Gaiman. “Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor” is the live announcement when the casting of Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor. Lastly there are two exclusive extras that were only shown in theaters. There is a prequel scene and a cool Behind-the-Scenes featurette.
