Last night, Walmart unexpectedly began taking pre-orders for the Super NES Classic Edition. If you weren’t playing Splatoon 2, perhaps you were lucky enough to get an order in. Reservations were up for about 40 minutes before Walmart pulled the plug.

In one way, this is already a win over the NES Classic Edition. For that hardware, retailers did not take any pre-orders.

Walmart looks to be done at this point. But what about other retailers? Based on one tweet from Target, the store will be taking pre-orders. We don’t know when, however.

Technically this isn’t an official announcement from Target, so we won’t believe it until we see it. If and when Target does open pre-orders, we’ll let you know.


Retro City Rampage DX will be on Switch very soon – likely within the next week or two. See some off-screen footage of the new release below.

The first Pokemon GO Fest has not gone smoothly. Due to long lines and connectivity issues, some players have barely been able to accomplish anything at the event.

On the bright side, Niantic is at least trying to make things up to the fans. Those who are at Pokemon GO Fest can receive a refund and $100 of in-game coins.

Niantic is still apparently working through today’s issues. However, the status for some of today’s big events – like the opportunity to catch the first Legendary Pokemon – is unclear at the moment.


The first Shantae figure was sold at Anime Expo earlier this month. Series creator Matt Bozon said that if it sold well, Volks would be more interested in making it available online as well.

Volks now has a pre-order page up for the Shantae figure on its website, so it looks like interest at Anime Expo was very high. Orders placed now will be delivered on August 18. Pricing is set at $75.

You can pre-order the Shantae figure here.

Remember when Pokemon GO launched last year and the game was hit with massive connection issues? The same problems have returned one year later.

At Pokemon GO Fest, attendees are having to deal with long lines. Connectivity issues are also plaguing players, meaning the game is unplayable for many fans. Adding to it all, some people spent quite a bit of money just to make it to Pokemon GO Fest.

This culminated with Niantic CEO John Hanke getting booed during an introductory speech on stage:

So… this is all a huge mess. We’ll have to see how things play out during the rest of the day.


Harvey Atkin passed away this week after losing a battle to cancer. He was 74.

Some of you may be unaware of this, but Atkin played a big role in the Super Mario Bros. cartoons way back in the day. Atkin voiced King Koopa in three different animated shows in the 80’s and 90’s. Interestingly, he was the only one to play the same role in each series. Atkin was involved with The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, and The New Super Mario World series.

Rest in peace, Harvey Atkin.

Pokemon GO Fest 2017 live stream

Pokemon GO Fest is just now beginning, and thanks to Niantic, you can watch all of the festivities unfold in real time. Among other things, an event will be taking place in which the first Legendary Pokemon should be unleashed. View the live stream below.

GameStop is hosting a Splatoon 2 demo event today, and the retailer is giving away color changing cups for those who stop by and give the game a shot. Over on the Nintendo NY Twitter account, we’re given a better look at the two items. Have a look below.

Mario Kart Arcade GP VR was featured on the latest episode of Denjin Getcha showing footage of the game itself and the overall setup. Check out the footage below.

For awhile we had hoped that Redout would finally come to Switch this month. GameStop went as far as to list it for July 25 in one of its weekly ads. Unfortunately, July 25 is almost upon us, and that date is looking extremely unlikely.

GameStop’s own online listing has been updated to October 24. The same goes for Best Buy. Amazon has a release date of August 29.

In any case, the bottom line is that we still don’t have an official release date for Redout on Switch. Anything being listed by retailers is speculation at this time.

Thanks to Brent for the tip.
