Here’s a little something that you may or may not have known about Switch. When touching the screen on the Home Menu, the sound is directly related to the surface area of your tap. With a larger surface, there’s a lower pitch.

I admit that I could be genuinely oblivious here, but I honestly had no idea about this – in part due to how little I use the touchscreen. Hopefully I’m not the only one.


Constructor is taking longer than anticipated to land on Switch. The game was first thought to be set for April 28. On that day, it was pushed back to the summer. Now we’re hearing that an October launch is planned. Hopefully there won’t be any further delays.


Nintendo has announced the ARMS Japan Grand Prix 2017. The tournament will be held this fall, with local qualifiers held at four major cities: Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka. A champion will then be determined with a large tournament. More details will be shared through the official Twitter account later.

Nintendo held a tournament for Japanese ARMS players earlier today, and towards the end, producer Kosuke Yabuki appeared. It was reconfirmed that Max Brass will be delivered as a playable fighter, along with his stage. Yabuki also indicated that Nintendo will be adding another game mode, new Arms, and fixes based on gathered data from online battles. Yabuki noted that Nintendo is trying its best to release the update in the middle of July.

Here’s today’s tournament in its entirety for those who’d like to view it:

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon was announced for the west earlier this week. Following up on that, we have the game’s boxart. Despite the text saying it’s not final, we can’t see the packaging changing much before release.

To compare, here’s the Japanese version:

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon launches in Japan on August 31. North America and Europe are getting the title in late October.

The Camera Rune in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is undoubtedly a useful feature. Players have used it to take all sorts of pictures and selfies with Link. With a new glitch though, the possibilities have expanded.

By following the steps below, you can move around freely while using the Camera Rune, ultimately allowing for infinite poses:

1. Hold Shield (ZL)
2. Camera + Crouch (L + LS)
3. Side Jump (Right + X)
*Hold ZL the whole process

YouTube user Mety333 shows off the glitch in the following video:

It’s true that you can take screenshots at any time on Switch. However, there are some angles and photos that you just can’t really take during normal gameplay, especially with the zoom function. And if nothing else, being able to play while the Camera Rune is going can lead to some interesting results.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild marked a monumental step for the series in terms of how Nintendo portrayed its characters. For the first time, the game featured voice acting. Among others, Zelda was given a voice.

Patricia Summersett played the role of Zelda in the English version of Breath of the Wild. With the game’s first DLC pack arriving yesterday, we felt this would be the perfect opportunity to speak with Ms. Summersett about her role in the game. Continue on below for our full discussion.
