The Roots, Jimmy Fallon, and Ariana Grande perform her new single with Nintendo Labo

We have no words left to say

It’s been four months since Nintendo challenged the world’s creativity by launching Labo, a DIY cardboard set that lets you transform your Nintendo Switch into, well, just about anything.

We’ve seen bits and pieces of glorious creations on the internet since, including this guy who turned his Nintendo Switch into a music production studio:


There’s also this dad who built a robot with his kid, who is now the robot:

Even courier UPS, self-proclaimed experts at packing things in boxes, says Nintendo Labo inspired them to be more creative with cardboard and made what they dubbed the Labo Toy-Con-tainer:

And of course, how can we forget Dami Lee’s inspiring tutorial on building, coding, and making music on Nintendo Labo?

As you can see, making something out of cardboards is no easy feat — programming the Switch to play one chord on the Labo-guitar alone takes a lot of time and brain cells to figure out.

But on The Tonight Show, Ariana Grande, Jimmy Fallon, and The Roots made possible what’s seemingly impossible: They performed Ariana’s new single “No Tears Left to Cry” with cardboard. Yes, cardboard! See for yourself:

Seriously, how cool is that? It’s not clear whether they built and coded their own instruments; my guess is they didn’t. But the fact that they learned and played all those cardboard instruments, and performed an entire song with them, together, is one of the most impressive things I’ve seen on the internet.

Let’s see that again:

If Nintendo Labo doesn’t restore your faith in humanity — and humanity’s creativity — I don’t know what will.

Minecraft Earth is like Pokémon Go but with building blocks

Published

on

In a move that makes loads of sense, Minecraft is coming to mobile though an augmented reality app similar to Pokémon Go.

It’s called Minecraft Earth and it’s arriving later this year with a beta phase happening during summer. The developers offered this trailer, but it does little to explain how the system would work.


Check it out:

The official website’s FAQ section, however, delves into more of the info we actually care about.

For one, it’ll be free to play and will include several of Minecraft‘s traditional features including world building and discovering/fighting mobs.

Concerning regional availability, the developers aren’t confirming these details just yet. If it’s anything like the issues Niantic experienced with Pokémon Go before, chances are this rollout will be gradual, too.

Finally, for the “Will Minecraft Earth have loot boxes?” question, the website has a definite “No” to answer that.

Minecraft Earth will be available on both Android and iOS. Fingers crossed that there’ll be no delays. 🤞

Finally! New trailer of Final Fantasy VII remake drops

We waited four years!

Published

on

It took four years but we now have a follow-up trailer to the Final Fantasy VII Remake. First announced during E3 2015, the much-anticipated remake has only shown up through rumors and disappointing news of delay.

However, at PlayStation’s State of Play, we now have some new footage of the game. The released footage features cinematic scenes with Cloud and Aerith, gameplay previews, and glimpses at the remake’s primary antagonist, Sephiroth.


Final Fantasy VII was first released for the original PlayStation. It’s the first game in the series to move away from 2D animation and make use of polygonal character design, taking advantage of the console’s capabilities.

The game’s director Tetsuya Nomura also said that “most of the plans are already in place in the run up to the launch.” He also promised more details in June. Here’s to hoping for no more delays and that we don’t have to wait another four years until the game actually comes out.

Confirmed: EA plans to expand Apex Legends to mobile platforms

Following other titles like Fortnite and PUBG

Apex Legends on PC | GadgetMatch

Electronics Art‘s popular battle royale title, Apex Legends, is on its way to challenge mobile players. During the company’s earnings call, the game’s publisher and developer mentioned the upcoming mobile version of the Titanfall-based game.

The confirmation aligns with EA’s initial thoughts of bringing Apex Legends to mobile, especially on smartphones. There are no specifics about platforms or release dates, but we’re betting Android and iOS are part of the list. There’s also a possibility for the Nintendo Switch to join the party.


EA’s decision to expand to mobile is part of the new strategy they are working on. Part of it is bringing Apex Legends to China.

Also during the call, EA reported that Apex Legends currently has over 50 million users. While impressive, the game’s growth is slowing down, which is why they now have to bring the game to more platforms.
