Yoshiaki Koizumi and Eiji Aonuma, the producers of Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of the Wild respectively, recently played the Nintendo Guessing Game to see how well they know each other. Check out the full video below.


Two new items from Japan now have pre-orders open.

First, you can reserve the Giovanni & Mewtwo Nendoroid. Play-Asia, Good Smile, and AmiAmi all have reservations open. This is tentatively scheduled for August.

Below are a few more photos:

Play-Asia is also taking pre-orders for the Kirby 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert CD here. This mostly features music from the concert in Tokyo last year, though the second disc is a Memorial Arrange CD and features songs not played there.

A few years ago, Mario received his own Nendoroid. If you missed out on the figure originally, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s seeing a reprint.

Play-Asia has opened pre-orders here. You can also reserve the figure on Good Smile here.

The Mario Nendoroid reprint is tentatively planned for the end of August.

The Super NES Classic Edition has returned on Amazon once again. You can place an order right here. As this is considered a “lightning deal” stock isn’t expected to last long. Try getting an order in while you can.

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.

Samus Returns could be just the start of Metroid’s 2D resurgence. Rumor has it that another entry in the franchise is in development.

The Shovel Knight amiibo 3-pack featuring Specter Knight, Plague Knight, and King Knight is once again available for pre-order on Amazon. You can place an order here.

Yo-kai Watch toys are now showing up in McDonald’s Happy Meals across the United States. Eight toys can be found in total, including watches, masks, and more.

You’ll have until January 28 to secure the different toys. After that, McDonald’s will be retiring them.

Here’s the official news about the new Yo-kai Watch toys:


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.”

For those in the UK, if you’ve yet to secure a SNES Mini, you can nab one at the Nintendo UK store. It’s currently in stock here. A USB Power Adapter is included with all purchases.

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.
