After a fairly lengthy hiatus, 2D Metroid was back in the spotlight with Samus Returns. Nintendo and MercurySteam partnered together on the 3DS game, which debuted last September. It wasn’t entirely new, but was a remake of the Game Boy title Metroid 2: Return of Samus.

Detective Pikachu amiibo costs $30
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 28 Comments | 0 Likes
Earlier today, Detective Pikachu was announced for the west. The news was accompanied by the reveal of an entirely new amiibo, which is bigger than other figures in Nintendo’s line.
We now have confirmation that the Detective Pikachu amiibo will cost $30. That makes sense given the size increase.
You can use the amiibo in-game to unlock “a combination of hilarious content that might also provide a hint.” You can still access this through normal means, “but tapping the amiibo will allow players to unlock content more quickly.”

Switch is the fastest-selling console of all time in France, other tidbits and sales data
Posted on 1 week ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Nintendo, News | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
Yesterday, we reported on the Switch’s success in Italy, where the Switch sold faster than the Wii in its first 10 months on the market. Today, we have a similar success story from France.
Speaking with Les Numériques, Nintendo of France General Manager Philippe Lavoué has revealed some concrete sales numbers for Switch hardware and software in 2o17. In October, Lavoué stated that Nintendo’s goal was to sell a total of 800,000 Switch consoles in France in 2017. That goal has been reached pretty comfortably – the Switch has sold a total of 911,000 units in France last year. Not only does this mean that the Switch has surpassed the Wii U’s lifetime sales in France, but it also makes it the fastest-selling console of all time. Previously, that record was held by the Wii with 703,000 units.
