A reel from Film Roman posted in November has a few seconds showing the Mega Man cartoon. It was originally uploaded at the very end of November, but fans came across the clip today. Take a look at the footage below.

In November, the NES Classic Edition sold 196,000 units in the United States. The hardware had another strong month in December. According to the NPD, NES Classic Edition sales rose by 14 percent. That puts it at just over 223,000 units sold.
Sales should tail off this month if only due to a lack of availability. Hopefully Nintendo manages to get more stock out in the near future.

Another mystery amiibo CPSIA certificate spotted

Update: As HeroOfTime125 points out to us, the filing starts with AACK. AA is used for Smash Bros., so it could be a further hint at a Corrin amiibo.
Original: Last week, three unknown CPSIA certificates popped up in Nintendo’s database. Those may have had something to do with the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo announced shortly thereafter (Zelda, Bokoblin).
Now another mystery certificate appeared on Nintendo’s website today. With the Fire Emblem Direct happening in a few hours, could this be related to a Fire Emblem amiibo?
