Nintendo has provided Kotaku with an updated statement about the situation surrounding Joy-Con connectivity issues on Switch.

According to the company, the issues stemmed from a “manufacturing variation”, which caused “wireless interference with a small number of the left Joy-Con.” Nintendo has already addressed things “at the factory level” and says it won’t be a problem moving forward.

Nintendo’s full statement reads:

The team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has made it official: the game is heading to Switch. Additionally, plans for the Wii U version have been cancelled. News about a Switch version of Bloodstained first emerged earlier this month.

In a Kickstarter update, it’s noted that “the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.” It made sense to include Wii U during the campaign as Switch wasn’t in the picture at all, but that’s no longer so. “This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch,” the Kickstarter update reads.

Those who supported Bloodstained on Kickstarter can change their backer survey platform from Wii U to Switch or any other version. A refund should also be possible under most circumstances.

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire kicks off on Friday. During the first event, Nintendo will be hosting a stream with members of the Treehouse.

You can watch it here at the following times:

– 12 PM PT
– 3 PM ET
– 7 PM in the UK
– 8 PM in Europe

While Switch was in early development, Nintendo reached out to Cyanogen about a partnership. According to former Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster, the two sides would have worked together on a custom-made OS, which would have been based around Android. Nothing ever materialized as McMaster told Nintendo to “stick it.”

McMaster wrote on Twitter:

McMaster added that Switch mostly uses a custom kernel. However, it does contain “bits of Android” as well.

As is the case in North America, Nintendo is planning a Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition for its European audience. A video showing its contents can be found below.

The Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia Limited Edition is mostly the same in North America and Europe. Both versions have a copy of the game, artbook, Sound Selection CD, Pin Set, and reversible cover sheet. In Europe though, the two new amiibo are included.

We first found out about Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology – a remake of Atlus’ 2010 DS RPG – a few hours ago. First details have now leaked from Famitsu.

On 3DS, this new version has enhanced graphics, beautiful visuals inserted for event scenes, and the ability to change the difficulty level. A-1 Pictures produced the opening animation. Players can also choose from two modes when they first begin:

– Perfect Mode: newly added Sub-History in addition to the Standard History and Alternate History of the original title right from the beginning of the game
– Append Mode: start with Standard History and Alternate History, and after clearing those, you can move on to the new Sub-History. Difficulty level can also be changed.
