Is There A New Release Date For Team Crash Racing On Nintendo Switch? UPDATE

Edit 1: Crash Team Racing now listed to release on June 21, 2019.

Edit 2: Date for Switch listed June 21, 2019 on Mobile.

ORIGINAL: After multiple tweets surfaced of Team Crash Racing the other day, people pointed out that Team Crash Racing’s release date for Nintendo Switch says “Coming Soon”, while PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions list June 21, 2019. You can see the screenshots below.

Team Crash racing may be delayed fir Nintendo Switch. However, it is entirely possible this was a place holder mistake or that the game reveal trailer wasn’t even supposed to list that release date for Switch. I will make another post once Activision clarifies.

Team Crash Racing is available now for pre-order.

https://youtu.be/1NhOUrYTXIY

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the next entry in the Smash Bros. series. So, make sure to have your body ready because the game is finally available now for Nintendo Switch. However, the next Smash Bros. will only include one character. (Just kidding!)

I want to thank everyone for reading my blogs and watching my A Smashing Countdown videos. It was so much fun making them. While I am recovering from my surgery, I will be playing some Smash on my Switch. I will get some videos up later next week onto YouTube. Until then, I am taking a few days off from YouTube to not put too much stress on my body.

Everyone should enjoy Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was well worth the wait for this game. I can’t wait to jump into the new Adventure Mode, World of Light. Once again, thank you for checking out A Smashing Countdown. Have fun playing Smash!

A Smashing Countdown: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Day 7 (E3 2018)

https://youtu.be/kFE3-9xNi3Y

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the fifth entry in the Super Smash Bros. franchise. The game will release on December 7 for Nintendo Switch. It is the next game after Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS.

Earlier this year, Nintendo attended the annual E3. They showed their Nintendo Direct for E3. Many games were shown to arrive on the Switch either this year or next year like Fortnite, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Super Mario Party, and more. Towards the second half of the Direct, Nintendo showed off Super Smash Bros.

A trailer showed up with Masahiro Sakurai talking via a translator. (Outside of Japan) We learned that everyone from every single past Smash Bros. would make a return as playable characters. Even third-party characters like Sonic, Snake, Mega Man, and Cloud make an appearance. New characters are coming too; Ridley is one of them. At the end, we learned the game was called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was confirmed to be releasing on December 7 for Nintendo Switch. It will for sure drive up the sales for Nintendo Switch and the game. It will be a great game for Christmas, too. See ya next time.

A Smashing Countdown – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Day 9 (First Year Of Switch)

https://youtu.be/8GfWVQrcNR4

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the fifth entry in the Super Smash Bros. franchise. The game will release on December 7 for Nintendo Switch. It is the next game after Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS.

In this episode, we talk about the first year of the sales for Nintendo Switch. It had a great first year. By the end of the first twelve months, the Switch had outsold the Wii U. That is just one year!

Nintendo Switch reached 14.86 million by the end of FY Q4 2017. The Wii U sold 13.56 million units. You can view all of Nintendo hardware sales [HERE.|https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/finance/hard_soft/]

Thanks for checking out this post. Tomorrow, I will show off the Smash reveal from earlier this year. From that point on, it will be chronology. I do apologize for today’s crazy video going against what I had originally planned. I hope you could still find some enjoyment out of this video and post.

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eevee Is Now On Nintendo Switch

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee are now available for Nintendo Switch. This is the first mainline Pokémon experience on Nintendo Switch. However, it is not the Pokémon game on the platform. You can also check out Pokkén Tournament DX and Pokémon Quest on the same system.

With Pokémon: Let’s Go, you can use Pokémon GO on your Smart phone to catch Pokémon and trade them back and fourth to your Nintendo Switch. Pokémon GO can be thought of as a companion app that released way before this new game was even available to the public.

In addition to Pokémon GO, the game allows you to use a Poké Ball Plus. It is basically a substitute for a Joy-con disguised as a Poké ball. Though, it has less buttons on it. But you can carry around your Pokémon when you don’t feel like carrying around your Switch the next time you go for a walk. Another feature the Poké Ball Plus has is the ability to transfer Pokémon to your phone.

Get Pokémon, Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee today!

NEW Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Is Available Now For Nintendo Switch

NEW Super Mario Bros. U originally released back in 2012 as a Wii U launch title. Now, you can play NEW Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe for Nintendo Switch. There are numerous NEW Super Mario Bros. games out there from the Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Wii, Wii U, and if you count Super Mario Run, then NSMB is also available for iOS and Android.

It would have been nice to see a brand new game rather than a port; however, to quickly release a first-party title during the first month of the year is a lot easier. Another thing to consider about this port is that Nintendo has been bringing over many other Wii U games to Switch. More than likely, Super Mario 3D World will come, as well. The Switch has Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which was kind of built off of the game. So, it makes a lot of sense.

Will you be getting NEW Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe for the Switch? Maybe you had it on Wii U along with NEW Super Luigi U and have decided to opt out or maybe you really have a strong desire to play the game again. Leave a comment below to let everyone know.

Soulja Game Console Website Will Redirect URL To Nintendo Official Website


Soulja Boy has been selling game consoles. One of his consoles had 800 games. It included ROM’s from the NES, SNES, SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive, and the PSone library.

It now seems that Nintendo has taken legal action. YouTuber NintendoPrime, explained that the URL now takes you to Nintendo’s official website. Try going to souljagame.com and you will see that it takes you to the Nintendo 3DS portion of Nintendo’s official website.

This did not surprise me as Nintendo is very defensive on their own IP’s. However, Nintendo did lean back on allowing content creators on YouTube and Twitch to receive all of the monetization. But Soulja Game is different. It uses illegal copies of games. A lot of the ROM’s are Nintendo games. I am really surprised it even took this long for Nintendo to take legal action.

Video Game Console and Handheld Sales Estimations As Of December 22, 2018

According to VGChartz, here are the estimated sales for the current generation of consoles, as well as the PlayStation VITA and Nintendo 3DS handhelds. These figure were set on December 22. These are estimations, we will have to wait for the NPD’s early this week more more concrete information.

Console Sales

Starting with Nintendo, the Switch launched back in March 2017. It looks to have sold at least 29 million units. It is getting closer and closer to Microsoft’s Xbox One, which lies at 43.1 million consoles sold. Next is Sony’s PlayStation 4. The PS4 has reached 91.2 million SKU’s. It is probable to outsell the Wii by this summer, which sold over 101 million consoles.

Handheld Sales

Moving on to handhelds this time with Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation VITA. Nintendo 3DS sales are slowing down, but sales have remained positive throughout 2018. The 3DS roughly sits at 74.1 million units. Finally, the PlayStation VITA reached a number of 16.1 million. It didn’t do that well; however, it seems to have performed slightly better than the failed Wii U at 14.86 million units.

Conclusion

NPD, in my opinion is more accurate on video game software and hardware sales. This will have to hold us over for now until the week starts. However, I do expect all consoles and handhelds to perform well.

Christmas Arrives In Sonic Dash

Sonic Dash is a free Mobile game for iOS, Android, and Windows devices. The game released back in 2013. It is an endless runner action game. It lets you play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, and plenty more Sonic characters. It even features My Little Kitty and characters from Angry Birds.

Today is Christmas Day. Sonic Dash seems to have a new addition. I figured, what better way to celebrate Christmas than to make a post on this. It is short but I think it is still worth checking out. The game is free, after all.

You can get Sonic Dash on iOS, Android, and Windows. The game has been out for nearly six years now and has garnered over 200 million downloads.
