Deadline is reporting that Crackle will air a five-part documentary series based on Nintendo on March 1. The show is titled Playing with Power: The Nintendo Story.

Jeremy Snead is a writer and director. Sean Astin acted as an executive producer and narrator. W

According to Deadline, “Playing with Power tells the sprawling story of Nintendo, the secretive Japanese company whose origins date to the 19th century.” It has interviews with Wil Wheaton, Alison Haislip, Nintendo of America co-founder Ron Judy, Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell, former SEGA of America CEO Tom Kalinske, former Nintendo CEO Reggie Fils-Aimee, and and head of Xbox Phil Spencer.

Last May, a new figure for Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition was revealed for Melia based on her appearance in Future Connected. We then saw a prototype version a few months later.

Tying in with the WonHobby 32 event, we now have a look at the final version of the 1/7 scale figure for Melia. You can see the design above.

There’s no word yet on when the Melia figure will be ready for production, but hopefully it’ll be finished by the end of the year.

Nintendo’s February financial briefing gave a lot of insight into the sales of hardware and software during the past months. However, the official report they released only provided the more technical details of the company’s finances and not what was discussed between investors.

Well now, Nintendo has released a summary of the Q&A conference call that Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa had with investors, and it includes more general details of what was discussed.

Investors brought up questions relating to new Switch hardware releasing, the possibility of the Switch passing the Wii’s sales, and the impact of Animal Crossing: New Horizons on hardware sales. They also had questions about the Switch’s appeal in foreign markets (such as China) and how Nintendo will expand the Switch’s player count heading forward. 

There is truly too much to recount in these notes, so the full transcript has been posted below to view.

Nyannyan Neko Mario Time

The latest episode of Nintendo’s Japanese show Nyannyan Neko Mario Time has now gone live. We’ve included it below.

According to a report from Asahi News, a 23-year-old man has been arrested in Japan relating to modded and hacked Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

The arrest was made after a modded Sobble was sold. In April of last year, the man apparently took home 4,400 yen from the hacked creature, which is about $42. A press conference was held earlier today and police showed the desktop PC used to alter the data.

Last year, LEGO worked with Nintendo on numerous products based on Mario. The company is now teaming up with SEGA to produce a set for Sonic the Hedgehog.

You can thank UK-based LEGO builder Viv Grannell for making it all happen. After Grannell’s pitch for a LEGO and Sonic crossover found support in the LEGO Ideas program, the project moved forward and gained the official support of SEGA.
