Switch has reached another major milestone. Based on the latest information provided by NPD, Nintendo has confirmed that its console is now the fastest-selling home gaming system ever in Canada.

During a video broadcast today, Nippon Ichi announced the latest information about the Disgaea series.
First, CEO Sohei Niikawa revealed that a remake of Disagea 1 is in the works. It will be released in Japan this summer. No information or images were shared, but given the success of Disgaea 5 Complete and the company’s commitment to Switch, this one should end up on Nintendo’s console.
Niikawa also teased the next entry in the series, Disgaea 6. However, we have even less information about this one, so we may not be hearing about it anytime soon.

Reggie leaves the door open to more gameplay possibilities and third-party support with Nintendo Labo

TIME was recently able to speak with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime about Nintendo Labo. The first topic discussed is the potential to expand on the idea and the use of the Toy-Cons, of which Reggie had this to share:
“Can [the Toy-Cons] be incorporated into other forms of gameplay? Certainly. But right now we think if we effectively communicate the power of the idea with Nintendo Labo [and] really enable players to make their creations, personalize them, and enjoy the [inherent] gameplay experiences . . . We think that’s going to be a great way to start and then progress down the path.”
