Speaking with GameSpot, Bethesda game director Todd Howard said that Nintendo was “less interested” in the company’s games in the past. However, that has since changed.

Howard noted that Nintendo has been a “very good partner” for Bethesda in its effort to bring Skyrim to the Switch. “Whereas before they were less interested in the types of things that we did or some other groups did,” he said.

Howard also had some praise for Switch. Regarding the new platform, he had this to say:

“I think it’s really smart what they’ve done. I think it’s the kind of device that only Nintendo could make. It’s exciting to bring Skyrim to the Nintendo audience. I don’t know where it’s gonna go. But I think it’s a really smart platform. We like it a lot.”


Update 2: We’re now hearing that orders are being cancelled. Guess it was too good to be true!

Update: Deal is dead.

Original: Amazon UK seems to have made a massive error, as the digital version of 1-2-Switch is currently going for just £1.99 on the site. It goes without saying that we have a price mistake on our hands.

You can try ordering a copy right here. We’ll have to hope that orders aren’t cancelled, but that could be a possibility.

With the Switch unboxing video that emerged earlier today, we have an important reconfirmation about how the system handles eShop purchases.

Much like with Wii U and 3DS, you can link a Nintendo Account to Nintendo’s new system. On Switch, doing so will allow for all eShop purchases to be tied to that account rather than the system. If you remove that link but re-link it at another point, it’s possible to redownload software or DLC that you purchased. Nintendo does say that discontinued software may be unavailable for redownload “in some cases.”

Reggie had previously indicated that eShop purchases could be tied to a Nintendo Account on Switch. Thankfully, now we have another confirmation straight from the system.

We now have an idea of what the demo kiosks for the Switch will look like, at least for GameStop locations. It appears to just be intended to show off the console screen, and not actually as a playable demo. Check it out below.


Switch unboxing video

Posted on 6 years ago by in News, Switch, Videos | 32 Comments

Continuing the early Switch footage and pictures, we now have an unboxing video for the console from the website FloKo. Furthermore, this looks to be the world’s first unboxing of a Switch. It’s been quite a day for Switch leaks, and I’m sure it has only made the wait harder for some out there. For the rest, you can see the unboxing video for yourself below.


Some new footage of the Splatoon 2 demo is up to watch on YouTube. It’s a mix of off-screen and direct footage, which you can check out below.


It seems we’re not done with the early looks at the Switch, as another picture of the console has surfaced. It’s not clear if this is from the same individual who has already shown us the OS of the Switch or if this is a similarly lucky individual who just received his unit early. Regardless, we’re able to get a much better look at the instructions included on the side of the box containing the console now. Check it out below.


Update: This looks to be real. Video of the OS is below.

NeoGAF member hiphoptherobot has apparently managed to secure a Switch unit nearly two weeks before release. He claims to have been “lucky” – meaning he’s not a member of the media.

hiphoptherobot shared some photos of his find, including a new image of the Switch UI. It definitely looks legitimate, but in this day and age, you can never be too sure. We’ll keep this post updated with any additional information or images that may come in.

Thanks to Matthew M for the tip.



Here’s something that may come as a bit of a surprise. On the official GDC 2017 site, Super Bomberman R is shown as one of the playable games developed with the Unity engine. Rather than going with internal tools, Konami and HexaDrive decided to use third-party technology. Fortunately we know that Switch supports Unity very well.
