Big N’s plans for this year’s E3 have finally been confirmed. It will be very similar to last year’s event, which was all centered around Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo will showcase Super Mario Odyssey, the new upcoming Mario game for the Switch, as well as other upcoming titles in the year of 2017, in the Nintendo Spotlight event. This event will be taking place on June 13th 12pm ET. Immediately after this event, the Nintendo Treehouse will be…

Nintendo set quite the goal for their fiscal year: to move 10 million Switch units. President of Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima is remaining cautious about this, however. Nikkei Asian Review has quoted Kimishima as saying that “I don’t think we can readily achieve the target [of selling 10 million consoles].” A special note from the same source indicates that “An executive at one software company said Nintendo asked it to introduce major releases ‘as early as possible.’” The software company in question is…

Game developers retire, and when someone as influential and long-standing as Genyo Takeda retires, it’s quite the story. Takeda was hired by Gunpei Yokoi in 1971, and worked on several under-performing titles. Takeda then went on to direct and produce several classics, including Punch-Out!!, Pilotwings 64, and Dr. Mario 64. He was also the brainchild behind the NES’s ability to save game data, the Nintendo 64’s analog stick and was the head of development for the Wii. Most recently, when Satoru Iwata…

Only Nintendo can come out of left field with an announcement like that of the New 2DS XL. Remember all the hints and teasers leading up to the possibility of a new addition to the DS family? Neither do I. However, as far as announcements go, Nintendo might have just excited us all about a handheld console we never even knew we wanted. Compared to the original 2DS, the New 2DS XL has 82% larger screens while remaining lightweight and still…

  In a recent investor’s report, Nintendo announced that it will forego a live E3 presentation this June. The report said Nintendo will once again “not be hosting a large-scale press conference for institutional investors, analysts and the media.” The report also mentioned that further details about Nintendo’s E3 plans will be revealed at a later date.

The Nintendo Switch is currently Nintendo’s fastest selling game system, having sold 31,000 more units than its previous best-selling console, the GameBoy Advance. However, the Switch’s sales have set it to be the second biggest hardware launch with regards to a month-long timeframe, only being surpassed by the Sony Playstation 4. In total, the Switch has sold roughly around 1.3 million units since its launch, which is still huge. This may partially be due to the sales and success of Breath…

Emulation is an aspect of gaming which is considered a legal gray area. It’s mostly illegal, yet it is incredibly easy to achieve. It’s basically entry level piracy, and I’m sure many gamers would love to have a Nintendo Switch emulator working on their PC. Currently there is no such thing as a Switch emulator, but there are fake ones out there. The Federal Trade Commission has stepped in and offered a statement regarding these fake emulators, as well as…
