One of the factors fueling the incredible success of Nintendo's Switch is that the system has become a magnet for ports from past platforms. There's just something about the combo console & handheld hardware that makes everyone want to play every game ever made on it, and developers are only too happy to keep pulling great games out of the shadows of yesteryear and re-releasing them in Switch form! We've seen tons of these releases already, and even more are heading our way through the rest of 2018 – like the epic Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which gathers *12* different iterations of the famous fighting franchise together into a single package! We take an in-depth look at it, evaluate more modern ports to the Switch like DOOM and Bayonetta 2, and then report on even more ports, like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition and Dark Souls: Remastered! (Of course, a few original works are thrown in too, just to help us all remember that not everything new on the Switch is actually old.)
Nintendo Power got unplugged. It was the original source of news, previews and reviews of the Nintendo video game scene, published continuously since the '80s until being unceremoniously shut down in December 2012 – but its legacy didn't die. A new team of writers, artists and designers took up its torch. Calling ourselves "The Nintendo Force," we've ushered in a new era of Nintendo coverage in magazine form, paying homage to Power's past while moving forward to embrace the future. So join us! Join the Force of Nintendo fans. NP is no more, but NF is its next chapter!
