Nintendo Reveals Mario Red & Blue Edition Switch Console

By tracy

Nintendo has revealed a new Mario edition Switch, which is the first variant of the console for the screen unit itself to be offered in a different colour.

The Mario Red & Blue Edition replicates the iconic colours of Nintendo’s mascot, with red Joy-Con controllers featuring blue straps and blue grips that mimic Mario’s dungaree straps. The dock and system unit itself are also red, rather than the traditional black format. Additionally, the Mario Red & Blue Edition also ships with a matching carrying case, as well as a screen protector.

This special edition version of the Switch console will be available to buy from February 12 – the release date of the Super Mario 3D World Switch version – and will be priced at $299.99. Nintendo states that it will be available from ‘select’ retailers, so you may need to browse a little to find a place selling them. Alternatively, you could go directly to the Nintendo store where the console is already listed.

Defunctland’s VR amusement park revives a long-dead Disney ride

By tracy

Obviously, nobody’s in a rush to hit the theme parks these days. But if you’re feeling the Disneyland itch after being cooped up for months, you can now ride a long-forgotten attraction from the comfort of your desk—no queuing required.

Over on YouTube, Kevin Perjurer’s Defunctland has been busy cataloguing classic, often long-dead theme park rides and attractions. Shortly after the channel debuted in 2017, Perjurer teased Defunctland VR, a project that’d let you pop on a headset and experience these shuttered rides for yourself.

Three years of relative silence later, and Defunctland’s first attraction is open for business. First opened in 1971, Disney World Orlando’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea has been fully rebuilt in Perjurer’s virtual park, sporting audio pulled from the original ride. The sub itself is fully functional, right down to flip-down chairs you can sit on to peek out at the aquatic animatronics through the window.

While intended as a neat little VR showcase, Defunctland VR is also fully playable in 2D, with a spacious little pre-ride lobby area to explore. The whole thing can also be experienced through a 360° YouTube video.

As it stands, Defunctland VR is a neat little historical artefact.

Killzone’s Website Has Been ‘Retired,’ Does Not Affect Online Multiplayer

By tracy
Sony has “retired” the Killzone franchise website, but it has promised that this change will not affect any online multiplayer modes.As reported by VGC, visitors to Killzone.com are now greeted with a message by developer Guerrilla Games that begins by saying, “The official website for the KILLZONE franchise has retired. Going forward, visitors to Killzone.com will be directed to PlayStation.com.”The message also mentions that while this change does not impact online multiplayer modes of Killzone games, player statistics or ranking data for Killzone Mercenary and Killzone Shadow Fall

, it is “now no longer possible to create or manage clans in Killzone Shadow Fall.”

Guerrilla ends by thanking “Killzone.com’s many fans and visitors throughout the years for their enthusiasm and support.”

While this doesn’t necessarily mean that the Killzone franchise is gone forever, it has been over seven years since Killzone Shadow Fall was released as a launch title for the PlayStation 4, and Guerrilla has since moved on to Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West.

PS2’s Killzone began the series in 2004 and PSP’s Killzone: Liberation followed in 2006. The PS3 had two entries – 2009’s Killzone 2 and
