Do You Know Where Your Joy-Cons Are? The New Switch Update Should Help

by Peter Paltridgeon June 20, 2017
The Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con controllers are sophisticated, tiny, and easy to lose (especially for children). If only there was a way to remotely determine where they were left last….wait, now there is. The latest update to the Switch firmware has added a “Find Controller” option in the menu that buzzes the Joy-Cons’ vibration feature on […]

Today was the day Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime went on the interview circuit, speaking with all the big websites and answering their queries.

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2017
The day Super Mario Odyssey was formally revealed at E3, representatives of Nintendo spoke of a possible multiplayer feature but said they were “still working on it.” Today in the Treehouse a co-op function was demoed for the first time.

E3 2017: There Will Be A Pikmin 4, But Not Tomorrow

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2017
Nintendo boss Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that Pikmin 4 is in development and will be out for the Switch sometime in the future. “I’ve been told not to share anything about this from PR,” Miyamoto said to Eurogamer while chuckling, because he’s Mario’s daddy and can break any order he wants, “but I can tell […]

E3 2017: Sushi Striker: The Way Of Sushido

by Peter Paltridgeon June 14, 2017
Nintendo wasn’t kidding this year when they said they were spacing out their announcements. Thirty minutes ago, out of nowhere, the live Treehouse stream sprung an unannounced 3DS game on everyone….and boy is it an interesting one. It’s called “Sushi Striker: The Way Of Sushido,” and It’s early enough that it doesn’t have a complete […]

E3 2017: Hats Off To Super Mario Odyssey

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
Super Mario Odyssey is now playable on the E3 show floor, and journalists can’t get enough. It’s the first open-world Mario title since Super Mario Sunshine, and it’s making a big impression. Until today, all we knew about Mario’s new hat (now named “Cappy”) was that it had eyeballs. Turns out that hat has just […]

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
For several years now Nintendo has forgone the traditional E3 stage presentation in favor of a pre-prepared livestream. With most of the other companies’ conferences not leaving a very strong impression, it was up to Nintendo to drop the bombs we were hoping for. And we did get a few.

E3 2017: Metroid: Samus Returns (Twice)

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
There hasn’t been a proper new Metroid game in seven years.

This morning we got that…and then we got more. […]

That was quick. The Nintendo Switch has only been out for a little less than three months, but already there’s a limited-edition version with a special design in the works.
