Below are the latest Nintendo products that can be currently pre-ordered at retailers:

Some maintenance on the Nintendo network is taking place next week during some of the first days of October. The maintenance will effect signing in to Nintendo Network IDs on the 3DS, Wii U, and computer web browser.

The schedule is as follows:

– 10 PM in Europe (October 2) – 4 AM in Europe (October 3)


Last year, GameXplain tested the NES Classic Edition with some Wii U games and the the Virtual Console. With the SNES Classic Edition’s launch, it’s time for another test.

Like we heard earlier in the week, the SNES Classic controller works absolutely fine with the NES Classic. You can also use it with Mario Kart 8 on Wii U as well as the Wii U Virtual Console. Since the SNES Classic controller layout is similar to the Wii Classic Controller, you shouldn’t have too many issues with the VC for the most part.

The latest Japanese hardware sales from Media Create are as follows:

Switch – 43,426
PS4 – 18,396
New 3DS LL – 8,726

Vita – 3,707
2DS – 1,659
New 3DS – 379
PS3 – 87
Xbox One – 76
Wii U – 56

For comparison’s sake, here are the hardware numbers from last week:

Nintendo’s maintenance schedule was updated today with four different periods. Online play, downtime for all shops, and maintenance involving passes on Switch have been added.

Here’s the full schedule:

Nintendo has once again carried out an item distribution for Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch. If you subscribed to the game’s news channel, you should be receiving a message from director Hidemaro Fujibayashi.

Hyrule Bass, Hylian Shrooms, and a Raw Bird Drumstick are this week’s distributions. Once you receive the message, you should see a link to boot up Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All of these items will appear in your game immediately.

Nintendo has posted a video with the producer for Breath of the Wild, Eiji Aonuma talking about that Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Korean languages will be coming to Breath of the Wild in early 2018 next year. With these new languages, Breath of the Wild will have 12 different language options to choose from.

Did you ever have dreams as playing as Waluigi in Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Well, your fantasy has been fulfilled. The modding scene has exploded as of late, and the results are about what you’d expect.

Here’s a look at a Waluigi skin:
