Once you’ve pre-loaded a game from the eShop, you’re locked in to the purchase. There’s no way to cancel the pre-order prior to release. Because of this, Nintendo is now facing heat from the Norwegian Consumer Council.

PressFire obtained a letter sent to Nintendo in which the Council asks for clarification on how to cancel digital pre-orders or create a way to do so as soon as possible. As Polygon notes, Nintendo’s current policy goes against the 2011 Consumer Rights Directive that grants “a higher level of protection for consumers … in their own country or elsewhere in the EU.”

When we last heard about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie’s tentative release date, the film was planned for 2018. However, since then, the movie rights have shifted from Sony to Paramount, and now it appears the release window has been moved back. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sonic the Hedgehog will be opening November 15, 2019.


GameStop has once again restocked the Super NES Classic Edition. If you’d like to place an order, do so here. GameStop is one of the few retailers with regular restocks of the SNES Classic, so hopefully those who are looking for a unit will be able to secure one.

Following changes made to YouTube in January, Nintendo has laid out how these changes will reshape the Nintendo Creators Program (NCP) in an email sent out to NCP members. Specifically, eligibility requirements have been reworked. Current channels involved with NCP who do not meet the new requirements will be deactivated from the program.

The latest European episode of The Cat Mario Show has gone live on Nintendo’s YouTube channel. You can watch it below.

Japanese outlet Entertainment Station published two new interviews with Yusuke Soejima and Park Masashi who lead the way on Nintendo’s indie efforts in Japan.

Masashi told Entertainment Station (via Fukuzatsu):

Update: Amazon has this up for pre-order here.

Original: The Super Mario Encyclopedia originally debuted in Japan back in October 2015. Three years later, the book is finally getting an English localization.

Dark Horse is continuing its relationship with Nintendo by handling the Super Mario Encyclopedia for western publishing. It offers a look at almost every Super Mario game created, starting from Super Mario Bros. up through Super Mario 3D World. You can expect descriptions of enemies, level layouts, tricks and glitches, and guides for finding all the collectibles. There are a total of 256 pages.

A number of Splatoon 2 competitions have been taking place over the past few months to determine local champions from some of Europe’s key regions. These winners will now be battling it out at Polymanga’s grand stage in Switzerland to determine the Splatoon European Championship on March 31.

Also at the event, a special virtual concert will be held featuring Pearl and Marina from Off the Hook. They’ll be appearing onstage “to sing along to a series of tracks and perform their slickest choreographed moves, all accompanied by a live band.” This will take place before the Splatoon European Championship.

Nintendo will be sharing more information about the Splatoon European Championship leading up to the event.
