SEGA has opened a brand new online store for its fans. The digital store, which only just started today, can be accessed here.
The shop only just seems to be getting started, but it already has quite a number of items to purchase. You can grab merchandise based on Sonic, Golden Axe, and even the SEGA Genesis. Look for more items on the store in the future.

Nintendo says Famicom cartridge holes were just a part of the design

The NES and Famicom are very different. Even from a design perspective, the two are dissimilar in many ways.
One interesting aspect about the Famicom is that the cartridges have two holes at the top. On the NES, these don’t exist at all. NES cartridges have indentations at the top, which we know are used to snap the cart in place.

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:

Posted on 4 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 9 Comments | 0 Likes
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.
Opportunity to get the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide for free on Amazon
Posted on 4 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 28 Comments | 0 Likes
Update (10/15): The Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide is temporarily out of stock (you still might be able to place an order), but the offer is still running. You can find a few other books that folks have had success with here. Books like The Art of Fire Emblem Awakening, The Art of Splatoon, and The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts are eligible.
Original (10/14): Amazon is running a new offer on its website that could net you a free copy of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe Edition guide. On the listing page, you should see a banner advertising an opportunity to get the book free as well as two others with an Audible trial. Click on that banner (it may require a refresh if you’re not seeing the correct banner) and start the trial (you can cancel pretty much immediately or whenever else you want).
Once you’ve complete the steps, which should only take a minute or two, you should see that the guide will be reduced to 100% off at checkout. Definitely not a bad offer, especially when you can save $50 in the process.
You can try the offer on Amazon here. We’ve only tried this with the Zelda guide, but it should work with at least some other books as well.
NES Classic Edition didn’t originally have boxarts on the menu

Last week, Famitsu published the first entry in its series of interviews with Nintendo about the NES Classic Edition / Famicom Mini (and SNES Classic Edition / Super Famicom Mini). The second section was put online a few days ago. Just like the previous entry, some interesting tidbits were shared.
Similar to what was said in the last interview, Nintendo again noted that very few staff believed that NES Classic Edition / Famicom Mini would be a hit initially. Since Switch wasn’t too far down the road, most staff at the company weren’t really paying attention to the classic hardware. However, Yamato – a former developer and now a manager of the sales department – said that it would make fans happy. He also strongly suggested to make a TV commercial. But since the product itself was met with stock shortages, they could barely air ads.
