Posted 1 week ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 20 Comments
The end of Miiverse is almost upon us. Towards the beginning of November, the service is shutting down. All posts and everything else associated with the social network will be wiped clean.
To celebrate all of the good memories on Miiverse, a number of Nintendo developers have contributed special drawings that have been shared over the past several days. Shigeru Miyamoto, Eijo Aonuma, and Takashi Tezuka are just a few who created art for the community.
Here’s the full roundup:
A number of new items have been added to Miitomo. Among the selection you’ll find in the app, the following are now available:
– Star print wire headband
– Dolman knit cardigan
– Denim overall dress
These items can be obtained by using Miitomo coins in Miitomo Shop.
Switch eShop adds section for games on sale
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 31 Comments
Finding out about the games that have been discounted on the Switch eShop hasn’t been entirely easy. But with a new inclusion on the store, it shouldn’t be as big of an issue going forward.
Today, Nintendo added in a section on the Switch eShop for all of the games currently on sale. Right now it’s somewhat barren, but as more and more games are released, it should fill up quickly.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is off to a slow start in Japan. During its first week, the game sold roughly 25,000 copies. Dengeki further adds that it had a sell-through rate of 45 percent.
Dengeki does say that Mario & Luigi games have gone on to sell over 400,000 copies. With that in mind, it’ll be interesting to see how this one does in the long run.

Demon Gaze developer Experience setting its sights on Switch
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in News, Switch | 29 Comments
Experience has never been associated with Nintendo platforms. In the future, however, that will likely be changing. Hajime Chikami, the president of Experience, expressed interest in developing for the console in a brief message posted on Twitter.
Experience might be best known for its work on the dungeon crawling Demon Gaze series. The studio also developed Stranger of Sword City and Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy.
Engine Software has discounted its full slate of games on the North American eShop. For one week only, all titles are down to just $1 (and €1.00 / £0.80).
Gunslugs, Gunslugs 2, Mindfeud, Proun+, and Sumico are included in the sale. There are some pretty decent games here, with Gunslugs being the particular highlights.
The $1 sale will be live until October 19.
Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Detective Pikachu movie expected to start filming in January 2018
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 9 Comments
A film based on Detective Pikachu was announced last year. The project has gone somewhat dark this year, but it looks like things are about to pick up in just a few months.
Omega Underground spotted a product listing showing that Detective Pikachu will be filming in London, UK on January 15, 2018. A short blurb says that it’s a film involving “a new character and storyline in the Pokemon universe.”
Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Monsters Vs. Aliens, and Shark Tale) will be directing Detective Pikachu. Nicole Perlman and Alex Hirsch are working on the script.
Square Enix has launched Lost Sphear in Japan. The RPG can be purchased in stores, though a digital version is being distributed as well. It’s a 2.4GB download, in case you’re curious.
Lost Sphear is still a few months out in the west. It’s planned for January 23 in both North America and Europe.
