Check out some screenshots of this week’s Nintendo Downloads in Europe:


After Nintendo revealed Switch last year, some fans noticed that the the system takes on the appearance of a puppy. It’s particularly evident when the Joy-Cons are connected to the Charging Grip.

Amazingly, this was actually intentional. The Wall Street Journal mentioned to Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi that the Joy-Cons look like a dog, who responded by saying that he knew. Koizumi added that’s what his team was thinking when making Switch.

The Wall Street Journal has conducted an interview with Yoshiaki Koizumi, the General Producer of the Nintendo Switch, at the console’s big event last weekend in Tokyo. Make sure to read the full article here; below are a few interesting excerpts:

On the difference between previous handheld devices and the Switch:

“You could go out with a hand-held game device, but you can’t play with others if they don’t have the same device. We wanted to provide people with more options to play games.”

On when he would call the Switch a success:

“I want people to share the fun of playing games not just over social media but also on street corners. When we see people playing the Switch at various places and with different styles, then we would call the Switch a success.”

On how the Switch offers a different way to play games:

“When you play cards, you look opponents in the eye to read their strategy, and that is fun. And we realized no videogame devices have been able to offer that kind of entertainment.”


A new event called “Load of Coins” has gone live in Super Mario Run. For the duration of this event (until January 27th), players will receive 1.5 times the normal amount of coins if they win a match in Toad Rally.
