  • Smite FAQ
  • Warframe Switch Voice Chat Does Not Require Mobile App, More Technical Details Revealed | NintendoSoup — Controllers, Motion Control: Warframe will support motion controls and Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers at launch. Tenno can use the classic L/R Joy-Con controllers 1) attached to the Nintendo Switch console, 2) attached to the Nintendo Switch Grip, 3) detached Joy-Con controllers, and 4) Pro Controllers. Players can customize the level of sensitivity in the menu to their liking! Motion Controls: Motion control functionality is available at launch. All controls – mining, shooting, fishing, etc. – are motion control enabled. Chat: Warframe provides built-in voice chat, and does not require the Nintendo Switch Online App Cross-Play – Digital Extremes loves the idea of cross-play, but currently Warframe does not support it. Migrating Accounts – Just like with the PS4 and Xbox One accounts, Digital Extremes will permit players to migrate their PC account to their Nintendo Switch account. This will happen during a limited time frame from day one at launch to a future date (TBD). Storage – As a games-as-a-service title with five years’ worth of content, players can download Warframe straight to their system. We recommend a 32 or 64 GB SD card, as we plan to bring more content in the future. Always Online: Warframe is an always-online game – meaning it requires an online connection to play.

  • Email from Scott — Ray MK III: The main robot from Custom Robo. I’m glad to see Ray has been getting some love from the Smash Bros. team, and has appeared in various entries as a trophy, sticker, assist trophy, and (in 21 days) as a Mii Fighter costume. Sadly, the Custom Robo series is one of the most overlooked and under-appreciated Nintendo franchises. Adding him as a playable fighter would likely ignite a spark of interest in Custom Robo, just like Marth & Roy did for Fire Emblem. His moveset has unlimited potential, thanks to any number of parts and weapons the developers could pull from (that is what makes this robo custom, after all)! Shovel Knight: Big props to Yacht Club Games for getting their hero represented in Ultimate as an Assist Trophy, but an even better indie success story would be if Shovel Knight joined the front-lines of the battle. Shovel Knight may be “third party” like Snake and Sonic, but he also has close ties to Nintendo thanks to an entire line of amiibo and strong platform support. Shovel Knight would not look out of place, and has moves that can easily be mapped to the Smash fighter template by anyone with a little imagination. Waluigi: I don’t care much about this one personally, but why not! Appease the fans! This is the Ultimate entry in the franchise after all, so why wouldn’t Nintendo throw their most dedicated players a bone and get it over with? This has to be the single most requested character since Ridley, and I doubt Sakurai wants to keep hearing fans beg for Waluigi for the next decade. This will be Wario’s third game in the series, so it’s about time for his purple cohort to join the fray. Paper Mario & Paper Luigi: We already have access to two variations of Mario, so a third would seem like overkill… unless it’s an Echo Fighter duo of Paper Mario and Luigi! Mr. Game & Watch proves that flat characters work, and the Paper Mario games speak for themselves as far as moveset potential. This addition would be perfect for fans of Luigi, who don’t always want to deal with his crazy physics and janky momentum. Fortnite Dude: Just imagine it. A crossover between Super Smash Bros. and Fortnite would shake the gaming industry! There’s no other collaboration that would turn the heads of the masses. Fortnite continues to be the hottest game for the younger demographic now that Minecraft has started to plateau. I would absolutely love to see one more 3rd party addition in a Fortnite character, who would naturally have the best costume selection and taunts in the game. Attacks wouldn’t be limited to guns, but could also include pickaxe melee moves, boogie bombs that cause opponents to taunt, a glider recovery, and maybe even a little building action!
