“The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device,” Pokémon CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara disclosed to the paper in an interview with the WSJ. At this point many of us are growing antsy, as the NX is slated for release in March 2017. 

Maybe, it's just about time to unveil this beauty, Nintendo?

There are two ways to look at this news:
1) Whoa cool, what a neat and unique amiibo!  I sure would love to have one.
2) NOOOOOO I'm never going to be able to get my hands on it.  I might as well just curl up in a ball and die now.

Choose your own adventure, I suppose.  And expect to see a silver one as well.

Yesterday, news feeds were stormed by a couple 'shocking' (...) in-game discoveries. We had the unearthing of the prehistoric Mike Tyson Punch Out!! Easter Egg.



And we also had the super rare Super Mario Bros. 3 slide animation..We'll take a gander here, and assume many of you have long since known about at least one of these super secrets..

Anyways, here's the 1 frame animation in all its unadulterated glory.

According to Bloomberg, Nintendo's planning a new strategy for the future:

The Kyoto-based company will develop completely new game machines for emerging markets rather than sell cheaper versions of existing devices such as the Wii U, President Satoru Iwata said in an interview today. Nintendo is also planning to boost the use of characters such as Mario by offering figurines that will allow the transfer of game information between devices through near field communications.

Nintendo will be revealing a new Nintendo Figurine Platform (NFP) at E3, similar to the system used by Skylanders:

The platform announced today will allow figurines to link with different video games through near field communication technology and exchange data via the Wii U gamepad. More details will be released at the E3 trade show in Los Angeles in June.
