This information comes from Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime…

On Virtual Console for Switch…

“We know that our fans, our players, want access to all of our digital content, we know that. What we’re working through is, ‘okay, what’s going to be the best way to make that happen, to make that available?’ Certainly, we recognize there’s an appetite for all of our great legacy content.”

On My Nintendo…

“From the Nintendo of America standpoint, we have it as a priority to make My Nintendo much more meaningful moving forward.”

Update: This can be fixed! You’ll need to do a hard reboot of the system, and then Cars 3 should be fine. It’s definitely not an isolated incident though, and we’ve seen a few reports about this happening. Hopefully Warner Bros. and Avalanche will put out a patch to prevent these issues.

Original: You may want to hold off on purchasing Cars 3: Driven to Win on Switch. We’re hearing that the game doesn’t go beyond the title screen, meaning it can’t be played at all.

Here’s a look:

Anyone out there have Cars 3 on Switch? If so, have you encountered these issues? It’d be interesting to see if the Wii U version works…

“What we are doing, as quickly as we can, is scaling up the production to make more available into the marketplace, to get to the point where every consumer who wants a Nintendo Switch can find a Nintendo Switch.”

“That’s what we’re trying to get to. I’m not going to tell you when we’ll get there, but our goal is to improve our supply chain so that more product is available to more consumers. And that is a key focus.”


Nintendo crowned champions in two separate tournaments today during the E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles.

In the 2017 Pokkén Tournament DX Invitational, four teams battled it out in a crew battle, with the winning team of YouTube star MatPat and pro-gaming player Allister Singh each taking home a framed Pokkén Tournament DX art piece signed by Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokémon Company, and developers from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.

Later, during the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational, four expert gamers competed in a single-elimination tournament against four E3 attendees. The winner Jamal “Zerk” Mackey, an E3 attendee that qualified for the tournament in the Nintendo booth today, received the coveted 2017 ARMS Open Invitational Belt. He also got the chance to face-off against the Kosuke Yabuki, the producer of ARMS, in an exhibition match.


Switch’s online app may have a name. Eagle-eyed fans have spotted the title “Nintendo Switch Online Lounge” after fiddling around with the system, which appears to have somewhat of a built-in lobby function. Requests are apparently done through a web applet, and that applet has the logo… typo and all.

You can invite friends to the room via

GameSpot reported today that after reaching out to Capcom, the publisher has no plans to localize Monster Hunter XX for the west. The series’ official Twitter account has since put out the following:

Admittedly, that comment doesn’t really clarify the situation. Capcom did tack on “at this time” though, so perhaps they don’t want to rule out localization entirely. GameSpot also didn’t post Capcom’s original statement word-for-word – it was instead a paraphrase – so that certainly doesn’t help things.

In any case, Monster Hunter XX isn’t heading west… for now. It’s unclear if and when that will change.


Not all levels in Super Mario Odyssey will be automatically accessible. In Treehouse footage shown today, it was mentioned that each Kingdom has secret levels requiring certain outfits. The Mario Maker costume shown above is one example.
