Update (2/4): These deals are now live. Wii U sale is here and 3DS sale here.

Original (2/3): Starting tomorrow, Target will be running a couple of notable Nintendo-related offers.

First, a few Wii U games will be included in a B1G1 free sale. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Pokken Tournament, and Splatoon are confirmed titles thus far.

Arowana Mall, a returning stage from the first Splatoon, joined Splatoon 2 last night. We’re now able to see how the stage compares in both titles. You can see a comparison video below.

Update 2: Bumped to the top. Original comparison has been added in below. We also have a video comparing Bayonetta 2 on Switch and Wii U. Nintendo World Report also clarifies in its reupload that the darker shade isn’t confirmed to be the game itself just yet as it could be due to the capture equipment.

Update: The video has been removed. We’ll bump this to the top if/when it returns.

Original: Nintendo World Report has put together a video comparing the original Bayonetta on Switch and Wii U. The game has a slightly darker tone on Switch, and also loads a bit faster. You can watch the full comparison below.

A new update has gone live for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It primarily acts as a way of adding in support for more languages, though Nintendo says fixes have also been implemented.

The full patch notes are as follows:

  • You can now select Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), or Korean in the language settings menu on the Switch console to display text in the selected language.
    • Voice Language selection is not supported for the above languages. If you choose “Match System Settings” in Options, voice data will be set to Japanese.
  • Various fixes to improve gameplay.

Thanks to Cameron and Reddit for the tip.


Nintendo has published a new video interview with Eiji Aonuma and Hidemaro Fujibayashi, the series producer for Zelda and Breath of the Wild’s director respectively. The two talked about a few different topics, including The Champions’ Ballad DLC, what’s next for the series, and more. Watch the full interview below.


Nintendo confirmed earlier today that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has shipped 6.7 million copies on Switch worldwide. Adding in sales of the Wii U version of about 1.08 million, the overall total should be roughly 7.78 million units worldwide.

The big takeaway from that number is Breath of the Wild is now the second highest-selling Zelda game. Only Twilight Princess has it beat globally with 8.85 million copies sold. Breath of the Wild could very well overtake it in time.

Nintendo said earlier today that Switch sold 12.1 million consoles during the nine month period ended December 31. 7.24 million units were sold specifically during the quarter.
