Switch has all sorts of different ways of playing. With Hamster’s Arcade Archives series, it looks like you can actually have a setup in which the screen is displayed vertically. This was discovered with the latest Neo Geo release, Neo Turf Masters, but it applies to the other titles as well.

The screen option admittedly doesn’t have a tremendous amount of use here. In the future though, it’ll be interesting to see if any other Switch games are made with a vertical format in mind.

At GDC a few weeks ago, Niantic’s Dennis Hwang hosted a panel relating to Pokemon GO. Hwang touched on “the various UX and visual design choices that were shaped by a focus on real-world gaming, and how they led to a fun and accessible play experience for a diverse set of players across age and gender demographics.”

The full recording for Hwang’s session is now online. You can watch the full talk below.

Switch isn’t the easiest thing to find at retail right now. Due to that as well as the strong response to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, pre-owned Wii U sales have been “reinvigorated,” according to GameStop senior director of merchandising Eric Bright.

Bright told GameRant that GameStop has been moving many pre-owned Wii U systems and new copies of Zelda. The situation overall “completely racked up the Wii U market.”

Bright said:

“With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild coming out, we’re seeing great results in our pre-owned Wii U sales. We’re selling a lot of pre-owned Wii U consoles along with brand new Wii U copies of Zelda. Breath of the Wild has reinvigorated sales of the Wii U with Nintendo Switch being sold out at so many retailers. The Switch launching and Zelda launching completely racked up the Wii U market.”
