Mark your calendars for March 29th, because at 12 p.m. CT, Best Buy will be restocking two Nintendo consoles. Customers will be able to try and order the Switch as well as the NES Classic Edition. Both systems are almost impossible to find for their suggested retail prices at the moment, so don’t expect too much. It’s likely Best Buy’s website will slow down and become almost unusable, as has been the case many times in the past with other online…

Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime has a few words to say about E3 this year. First of all, he makes no bones about Nintendo’s presence at the expo in 2017. He claims the company will have “a big E3,” showcasing a variety of games. He also mentions both Switch and 3DS titles will be shown, but won’t give specific names. “E3 is always a big time for Nintendo. We look at each E3 as a unique opportunity to tell our story….

Senior Director of Merchandising at GameStop, Eric Bright, recently discussed the Nintendo Switch’s impressive launch with Game Rant. In the interview, Bright mentioned that the console has “one of the highest attach rates of software and accessories” he’s seen in awhile and that because of this GameStop is preparing new Switch bundles. Attributing some of the console’s success to the popularity of Breath of the Wild, Bright said the company is in the process of creating a Zelda themed bundle. “We’re seeing…

Switch users, how many gigs of data have you spent on taking funny pictures of Link? If there answer is “more than you want to admit,” then you might be worried about how many funny screenshots your Switch can hold. That mystery can be solved right now. The Switch does have a limit to how many screenshots it can hold, and that limit is 1,000. That seems like a lot of room to work with, but if you run out of…

I don’t know about you, but I certainly have had my fair share of problems when it comes to the left joycon. When docked, it seems that I have to be in the right position and the stars have to align perfectly for me to not have any problems with it. Most of the time is harmless, but sometimes, it causes me to die in Breath of the Wild or The Binding of Isaac. Nintendo has stated that this is due to…

In a recent announcement from Nintendo, they have confirmed a renewed partnership with the party gaming vehicle company GameTruck. For those who don’t know, GameTruck is a company who specializes in delivering party entertainment of both the indoor and outdoor variety. Because of the release of the Switch, Nintendo has decided to bring back their partnership with this company. As of this announcement, over a hundred GameTruck vehicles will now feature Switch games including 1-2-Switch, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe (once…

Nintendo has recently confirmed some news about their newest console that might make fans a bit annoyed. According to the FAQ section on Nintendo’s website, game data is stored on the console’s System’s Memory and cannot be backed up to a microSD card, or transferred to another Switch. That means that if you accidently delete your game’s data, or your Switch is lost, then your save game data is gone and you have to start your adventure all over again. Sounds like a pretty backward feature, not…

Now that you got your hands on your new Nintendo Switch, you might be scoping out some awesome skins or stickers to cover the plain boring outside. Before you run out and do that, heed this warning. The skin company dbrand has found out that vinyl stickers and skins are not compatible with the Switch console or Joy-Con. The company, who is well-known for selling skins for electronics, have found out through testing that the coating of the Switch is not compatible with adhesive. …

The Switch has been released to good reviews, and the accessories are performing well. Some Redditors have found a hidden message on one such accessory, the Pro Controller. The words “thx2 allgamefans!” are printed just above the right thumb stick. The text is small, and it may not be visible at first. For those searching, viewing at different angles and variable light conditions may help. I think its pretty neat that Nintendo added this little easter egg. It may be…

Recently, Nintendo released a video telling us a little bit about the Switch’s eShop. One of the things that Nintendo mentioned is that you can merge the funds you have in your Wii U or 3DS eShop to the Switch. If you think you might want to get Breath of the Wild first thing tomorrow through the eShop, you can go to your Nintendo Network ID and transfer the necessary money over to your Nintendo Account. The Nintendo Account will be…
