Now hackers have gotten Doom 3 running on Switch

"Can it run Doom?" The one question any self-respecting hacker asks himself with new hardware. Usually those hackers are trying to make Doom run on stuff like calculators and screens built into refrigerators, but this time around the focus seems to be on Switch.

We've already seen some instances of original Doom running on the Switch, but now we have evidence of Doom 3 working on the platform as well. I guess Bethesda really spurred on hackers with their port of Doom (2016) to Switch. Now it's a hacker mission to bring the whole series of games over!

Rare copy of Donkey Kong 3: The Great Counterattack surfaces

Have you ever heard of Donkey Kong 3: The Great Counterattack? It might sound like a ROM hack, but it's actually an officially-licensed Nintendo title. Hudson Soft released the game for a number of home computers, including the Sharp X1. Now all these years later, a legit copy of the Sharp X1 has surfaced.

As you might expect Donkey Kong 3: The Great Counterattack has some major differences from the version of Donkey Kong 3 we all know of. This version puts Stanley on a single flat platform at the bottom of the screen, where he has to fight off Donkey Kong, who is floating downwards via a pair of parachutes. There are 20 stages in all to tackle.

The whole reason we get to talk about this game now is due to a Yahoo! Auction selling a confirmed copy of the game. A group of software preservationists bid on the auction and won, and now they've dumped the game online for all to enjoy. That's not something Nintendo is usually okay with, but in this very random instance, I don't think they'll make too much of fuss about it.

Super Mario Bros. - New speedrun world record for the Minus World set

Watch [WR] SMB1 Minus World Ending Speedrun in 2:33.587 from Kosmic on www.twitch.tv

Kosmic is the man to beat when it comes to Super Mario Bros. speedrunning, and now he's put down yet another world-record run. In the video above, you can see Kosmic tackle the Minus World in 2:33.587, which is only milliseconds faster than the previous run. While Kosmic's run hasn't been officially recognized just yet, that seems to be nothing more than a formality.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp was developed by ND Cube

ND Cube is known to be the team that handles a lot of Mario Party games. As a matter of fact, they recently worked on Mario Party: The Top 100 for 3DS. That's not their most recent project, though. On the company's official website, we see that they were the main developer working on Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Nice to see them have an opportunity to step away from their party game roots to do something considerably different!
