Nintendo Switch Is Getting A Piano App Later This Week

If building the Nintendo Labo piano seems like it’d be too much hassle, this new piece of software heading to Switch later this week might well come in as a handy alternative.

Simply called Piano, this new app lets you transform your Switch into a mini piano wherever you go. It comes with a free play mode, where you can tinkle the ivories to your heart’s content, and also includes nine tutorials of “classic” songs if you happen to be a beginner.

We don’t have any footage to share with you sadly, but judging by these screenshots provided by Nintendo, Piano may well be best suited for young, aspiring pianists rather than already-accomplished musicians.

Fan releases Super Mario 64 port for PC, no emulator required

Players have been emulating and modding Super Mario 64 for years now. But a new port of the game has mysteriously popped up online: a fully functional, native 4K version of the game for PC, powered by DirectX 12.

A YouTube channel called Unreal (no relation to Epic Games’ property of the same name) posted a 12-minute gameplay video of the new port, which was spotted by VGC. It looks like the Super Mario 64 you remember, not the one that actually existed on your Nintendo 64. This version of the game is not emulated, and has built-in controller support, including the ability to use analog sticks to move the camera.
