Today Nintendo elaborated on it's previously announced plans to bring Nintendo world's to Universal Studios Japan. The company now plans to bring its attractions to three of Universal's theme parks, adding Orlando and Hollywood to that list.

Miyamoto seems genuinely excited about this, and we could watch videos of Miyamoto being excited about things all day.

Shares of the company fell 7 points after the Switch was unveiled. President Kimishima was baffeled at the response and told Bloomberg. "I had wondered about the reaction. But I don't understand why."

 

We suspect it has something to do with the Switch's resembalance to the Wii-U and Nintendo's continued insistance on releasing gimmicky consoles.

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.

It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...

Granted, the 'final product' doesn't look like anything worth getting too worked up about, but still the concept's something a lot of Nintendo fans could get down with. 

Miitomo's a free-to-start social experience built around Nintendo's Mii avatars. Users craft and wardrobe themselves (tapping into an array of virtual items) in Mii form while mingling with friends on the 'My Nintendo' network via Q&A mode.

Users can create Miis using Miitomo's editor, which is created in such a way that pics taken with a smartphone's camera or imported via Nintendo 3DS, or Wii U through a QR code can be re-worked back on the editor.

Nintendo additionally released a statement that a new virtual store with an amassed catalog of 2,000 games (purchasable w/Nintendo account for play with 3DS or Wii U) will be opening March 31st.

Watches video. Looks down at hands. Shakes head and disgustedly tosses controller...

No, but all kidding aside if players out there are willing to substitute pride and dignity and their GameCube controllers for wireless controllers, they'll be able to play with the Bidou technique. Granted, smash tourneys don't allow wireless controllers, but hey why not mess around with this during recess?

Bidou allows for players to near perfectly execute pivots/crouching pivots, sliding spot dodges, standing dash attacks, and sustain frame accuracy during wall jump attacks.

Yes, behold the latest alleged NX controller leak pics. They're definitely more of a sell than the last liberated, albeit ugly one. According to redditor perkele37, the one who posted these shots:

  • Only the upper 'nubs' of the sticks move. The bottom part is static (kind of like the circle pad, but it moves along the bottom 'sphere.'
  • The rollers on the top feel and look pretty much identical to a mouse scroll-wheel. Though I do don't believe this will be the final design.
  • Haptic feedback is feels like Apples 'taptic' engine. Not like regular rumble.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom.
