Our milestone 25th issue is here!
As 2016 comes to an end and 2017 is ushered in, Nintendo is in a time of transition. The Wii U is done – its time in the spotlight is over. And the all-new Nintendo Switch is mere months away!
Here in this in-between time, we’ve taken the opportunity to look back and reflect on the entirety of the Wii U era. But it’s not a simple walk down memory lane, because strong rumors suggest that many of Wii U’s biggest hits will be making encore appearances on Switch! Whether they’re presented as ports, sequels, “director’s cuts” or whatever else, brands like Mario Kart, Splatoon, Super Smash Bros. and more look poised to build on the foundations of their Wii U editions and add even more content for Switch.
Of course, the one game that we know for sure is going to appear on both systems is the game we selected to appear on the cover this time. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gets an all-new preview, supporting coverage in our Retro section and is the subject of both sides of our doubled-sided, packed-in wall poster! (You’ll get to pick to display either Horse Rider Link or Rock Climber Link.)
And our featured Interview this time is with André Segers of GameXplain, who nearly lost his mind earlier this year as he worked for months to prepare his epic, crazily in-depth *two-hour* analysis video pouring over all of the footage of Breath of the Wild recorded at E3 2016.
All that and more are in store for you in our 25th issue!
