This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta play some Puyo Puyo Tetris on Switch. Watch the full episode below.

VIZ Media has announced that it will be localizing the Splatoon manga. It will debut in late 2017.

VIZ passed along the news on Twitter:

Originally, the Japanese publication CoroCoro hosted the Splatoon manga, which began in 2015. A new manga based on the franchise will premiere in its June issue.


Target is promoting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in a big way. As part of a limited-time event, over 650 stores have a special experience in place tasked with getting consumers ready for the launch of Switch’s big racer.

First, Target has decorated its carts for the first time. The retailer decked out a handful of “Super Target Karts” that feature Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach.

A lot is being made today over a discovery on the official Zelda website. Tucked away in the “Online Guide” are various character profiles, including one for Ganondorf. On Ganondorf’s page, the official introduction is as follows: “Once known as the King of Thieves, Ganondorf Dragmire used the power of the Triforce to become the beast, Ganon.”

This actually isn’t new. The surname Dragmire was originally included in the North American manual for Zelda: A Link to the Past, along with his alias Mandrag Ganon.

Technically the site only reconfirms what we originally knew. On the other hand, some fans are questioning whether what’s stated is even reliable given how it doesn’t come directly from the developers. Really though this is what we have to go on for Ganondorf’s full name – which was the case nearly three decades ago as well.


The arcade game Taiko no Tatsujin: Yellow Version was updated with a Splatoon song last month. Next week, it will be receiving even more Nintendo content.

Bandai Namco announced today that a Zelda: Breath of the Wild Medley and Meta Knight’s Revenge Medley are being added. Those who use a Bana Passport Card can also earn special Link and Kirby costumes.

All of this content is planned for April 26. Various images are posted below.

More in-person photos have appeared showing off the Fire Emblem Echoes amiibo in greater detail. Get another look at the two figures below.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


The Samus Aran figma based on her appearance in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption isn’t too far off. It now has a targeted release window of October, and pre-orders opened today.

You can pre-order the figure on Play-Asia here. Good Smile is also taking reservations here while it’s up on AmiAmi here.

Here’s a closer look at the new Samus Aran figma:

If a new report from Eurogamer is to be believed, Nintendo will be following up on the NES Classic Edition / NES Mini with a new product. This year, the site claims that the SNES Mini will be launching.

Eurogamer’s article doesn’t have much in the way of details. However, the site says the hardware is “a major reason why last year’s NES mini did not see a reprieve from discontinuation”.

If Eurogamer is to be believed, the SNES Mini will be ready by Christmas.


Amazon Canada is taking pre-orders for many of the amiibo featured in last week’s Nintendo Direct. Skyward Sword Link, along with various Smash Bros., Splatoon 2, and Pikmin figures are live. Get them here.

Switch owners will find that a new update, version 2.2.0, is available for them to download. It appears to be a minor update, promising the usual stability and minor changes.

Nintendo’s lone patch note is the typical one: “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience”.

That’s it regarding the official news. There could be very small tweaks that Nintendo isn’t mentioning, but we won’t know for sure until users start poking around with Switch after applying the update.
