Pinball FX3 Hits the Nintendo Switch December 12

After a short delay, Zen Studios has announced that you will finally be able to play Pinball FX3 on your Nintendo Switch on December 12!

They have also released a new trailer that shows off some of the great tables that will be available at launch, and touches on some of the features such as HD Rumble, vertical handheld mode (you can play touch screen or using buttons), and cross-platform tournaments. And as always, the game itself is free to download (this includes a free table: Sorcerer's Lair).

You can find a full list of the tables that will be available at launch below.

Splatoon 2 Getting Two Massive Updates - Everything We Know

Since Splatoon 2 was released for the Nintendo Switch, there has been a slow drip of free content for the game.  We've seen a few new weapons each month, some new maps (and some returning favorites), and of course the Splatfests.

These have all been free.  Yes, in the days of shooters with DLC that ends up costing nearly the price of the base game itself, and microtransactions generally in the form of lootboxes, Nintendo is giving this stuff to everyone who owns the game.

This trend is continuing with today's announcement of the two upcoming updates.

Pinball FX 3 Delayed on Switch

Back in September, Zen Studios announced that Pinball FX 3 would be launching that month for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.  When I asked about a possible Switch release, I was told they were big supporters of Nintendo, and then a few weeks ago, they announced Pinball FX 3 was indeed coming to the Switch on November 14.

Today, however, Zen Studios announced that the game was being delayed to sometime in December.  The new release date will be announced soon.

This announcement kind of stinks, but if something wasn't quite right, I would rather it be delayed than released broken.

I am a huge fan of Zen Studios and their pinball games (Marvel Pinball 3D was my eShop GotY), and I am excited to play this on the Switch, even if I have to wait a few more weeks!

He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe Magazine Winter 1988

Tonight, I am going to highlight a few of my favorite things from this magazine that I recently found going through a box of old books.  I also found the comic adaptation of the Masters of the Universe movie and another He-Man comic, but that's for another night.

Let's dig right in, shall we?
