Shigeru Miyamoto hung out backstage at The Tonight Show and was asked to guess the sizes of random objects. Is it silly? Yes. Is it amazing? Yes. You can view Miyamoto guessing the size of things like a pizza, lightsaber and stuffed raccoon below.

Famitsu reported last month that the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom sold 260,000 units in Japan over its first four days. Now we have data for the entire month.

According to Famitsu’s data, the Nintendo Classic Mini: Famicom moved 319,000 units. The hardware launched on November 10, and data collection ended on November 27. That means Famitsu’s number accounts for about 2.5 weeks of sales.


This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta show off Super Mario Run. Check it out below.

Shigeru Miyamoto was seen wearing a new shirt featuring Mario, who is donned in samurai gear, during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Harmless, right? You would think so, but there’s apparently something going on there.

Nintendo’s Bill Trinen started the speculation train after he wrote the following on Twitter:

The shirt could be related to Super Mario Run. On the other hand, many believe it could have something to do with the upcoming Mario title for Switch. It’s worth noting that the kanji on Miyamoto’s shirt signifies “ran” (or “run”).

Most of you are probably familiar with Pokemon Generations – the webseries has been running on Youtube for a while now, and there are only four episodes left. But did you know that Pokemon Generations wasn’t available in Japanese until today? Despite being obviously produced in Japan, the episodes were only uploaded to The Pokemon Company’s various international Youtube channels in a variety of languages, but never to their Japanese channel. That changed today, however, as the first six episodes are now available in Japanese. You can check them out on the Japanese Pokemon Youtube channel here.

CNET is another publication to have put up an interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. Just as we’ve seen with these discussions, much of it is about Nintendo on mobile and Super Mario Run. Reggie confirmed that the mobile game won’t be on Switch, but won’t rule out Apple TV.
