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.


Update: These have now sold out (thanks Jason).

Original: Over on the official Nintendo UK store, pre-orders are open for the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo. The two Link versions, Zelda, Guardian, and Bokoblin are in stock. Find them all here.

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?


The latest episode of Nintendo’s Japanese show Nyannyan Neko Mario Time has now gone live. We’ve included it below.

Nintendo’s status at GDC 2017 was previously unclear, but it seems that the company’s presence is confirmed. The expo’s website lists the big N as one of the many exhibitors. Nintendo will have three booths in the North Hall.

GDC 2017 runs between February 27 and March 3.

Update: Very quick update for you. Nintendo’s Japanese Twitter page says the Fire Emblem mobile game will be revealed.

Original: A Fire Emblem Direct was announced last week as part of the Treehouse Live stream. The presentation has now been officially confirmed, with Nintendo stating that multiple titles will be featured.

You can expect the Fire Emblem Direct to begin at the following times:

– 2 PM PT
– 5 PM ET
– 10 PM in the UK
– 11 PM in Europe

The Treehouse Live stream indicated that Fire Emblem Warriors would at least be featured. Another possibility is the inclusion of the Fire Emblem mobile game.

Best Buy is now taking pre-orders for the Sonic Mania Collector’s Edition. It previously sold out on Amazon, but the retailer has it here.

Over in the UK, the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special Edition is back up on Amazon. And Zelda: Art & Artifacts Limited Edition, which is sold out on Amazon US / Canada and is limited to 10,000 copies is available as well.

In its young history, Yacht Club Games has only made one game thus far. The studio has continued to work on Shovel Knight since its release in 2014 with a bunch of brand new content.

Shovel Knight still has some new things to offer this year, but it sounds like Yacht Club Games is starting to think about moving on. In a tweet published on the developer’s page, it states that the team hopes “to start work on a new project in 2017”.


Two more amiibo are joining the Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo line. Zelda herself will be getting a new figure, as well as one for the Bokoblin enemy type. We’ve posted the packaging for both above.

Update: Sold out on Amazon, but still up on Best Buy. They’re also now up on Amazon France.

Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo. Get them here.

The two versions of Link, Zelda, and Bokoblin are there. However, the Guardian one is currently unable to be pre-ordered. We’ll let you know when that changes.

Note that the 20% Prime discount doesn’t apply at the moment. However, if you’re a member of the service, it should be discounted before release.
