Amazon may have more Switch stock in the near future. In a customer support chat exchange sent in by reader RobinWithN, the representative noted that new stock will be showing up “from the first week of May.” Regular consumers and Prime members will apprently be able to place orders. Of course, we do have to take this with a grain of salt as it doesn’t come from an official Amazon announcement, so keep that in mind.

Various retailers have been gradually restocking Switch over the past few weeks. However, Amazon hasn’t really had any units available in about a month. Based on today’s information, hopefully that will be changing soon.

Thanks to RobinWithN for the tip.

Video: “What Is Portal Knights?”

Posted on 41 minutes ago by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 1 Comment | 0 Likes

505 Games prepared a new Portal Knights video that provides more information on the action RPG that’s slated for Switch. View it below.

Update: Added in Sunday’s updates.


Nintendo Badge Arcade has been receiving daily updates since heading to the 3DS eShop. Because it’s continually updated with content, we’re rounding up all of the additions and changes in a weekly post.

Here’s what’s on tap for the week of April 17:

April 17

– 5 Nikki & Friends panels
– 6 Ashley panels
– 2 WarioWare panels
– 11 Yo-kai Watch panels
– 6 Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival panels
– Thank-you badges until April 20
– 1 free play

Rain can be an inconvenience for Link while climbing in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But for one of the game’s enemies, it’s actually deadly.

You’ll notice that a Fire Keese’s flames will go out when rain starts to pour. A few seconds later, it’ll perish right on the spot.

Here’s a quick look:

In the official Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide, two of the game’s most important developers left messages for readers. Series producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi both reflected on creating the massive title.

Aonuma’s message was particularly interesting. In it, he spoke about the developing process of “creating while playing”. Aonuma also touched on not being completely satisfied with development due to “a desire to keep evolving and growing.”

As for Fujibayashi, he touched on the difficulties of trying to rethink Zelda’s conventions. He also said that the team has “on occasion observed things happen in the field that not even we, who created the game, could have imagined.”

We thought it might be interesting to share both of these messages from Aonuma and Fujibayashi. Read the full transcriptions below.

The Japanese Fire Emblem Heroes Twitter account has confirmed that Female Robin and Navarre are both returning in the mobile game tomorrow. You should see them at the usual update time via a Grand Hero Battle. Some special quests are expected as well, but the specifics haven’t been shared just yet.

– Jack-o’-lantern mask
– Jack-o’-lantern costume

The returning stage will be available until April 29 at 6:59 PM PT / 9:59 PM ET.

Don’t have a television nearby? Want to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with three other players? Fortunately, that’s entirely possible.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe does in fact allow for four-player split-screen while playing undocked. You may not have as much real estate to work with, but the feature is there if you want to use it.

Thanks to Zack for the tip.
