‘Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled’ might not arrive on the Nintendo Switch at the same time as other consoles

Activision has scheduled the release of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled for June 21, 2019 for all platforms. But it looks like Nintendo Switch gamers might have to wait. GoNintendo reported that a number of retailers have taken away the pre-order option for the game’s Switch option—some have even cancelled customer pre-orders. On top of that, the official site for the game now also just displays the words “Coming Soon” when you head to the digital and standard Switch pre-order section. Selecting the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions display the original release date. As for the reason why the game could be delayed, we can’t say yet. But we’d have to wait for official word from Activision when it comes to any updates.

'Stardew Valley's brings multiplayer mode to the Switch this week

It's not news that Stardew Valley is getting a multiplayer mode. It was announced at Nintendo Direct last year that it was coming to the Switch. But now, we get a release date. Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone announced it'll be coming to the Switch on December 12, Wednesday.

This cooperative online multiplayer mode will let up to four  players coexist on one farm. The host player will live in the farmhouse while the other players get cabins.The players get to work together and share the spoils of hard labour. While the world state and overall pool of cash are shared among all players, ConcernedApe reminds players in his latest blog post, "inventories, skills, achievements, collections, individual relationships, quests, and crafting/cooking recipes" are unique to individuals. The update brings with it a new voice chat and text-based communication tool. The update will come for free to all Switch players. Meanwhile, PS4 and Xbox One should expect the update soon.

Three NES classics coming to Nintendo Switch on December 12th

Ninja Gaiden

Nintendo Switch Online is bringing three NES classics into its fold in the coming week. Nintendo just announced it’ll be adding the hardcore NES favorite Ninja Gaiden from Koei Tecmo. The system is also getting HAL’s The Adventures of Lolo, which is a for-all-ages puzzle game. And Wario’s Woods, which is the last NES game that came out before the system was “retired” will also be hitting the service. The three games will be coming on December 12.

If you’re not using Switch Online yet but have a Nintendo Switch, you can sign up for an individual plan for $4.99 per month, $9.99 for three months, or 24.99 for one year. If you want to get a family plan, which can have up to eight Nintendo account holders, that costs $44.99 for a 12-month membership.
