Nintendo Germany published a new announcement today covering Switch’s first birthday and its plans for the Leipzig Book Fair. In the press release, an update on the system’s sales was provided.

Switch sales in Germany have broken a ten-year record sales record previously set by Wii. The new console has sold more than 650,000 units in the country in its first year, outperforming Wii. Over 14 million Switch units have been sold as of December 2017.

Just a short while ago, Nintendo began distributing a brand new system update for Switch – version 5.0.0. As part of that, the Joy-Con themselves have also received an update. Unfortunately though, we’re not quite sure what it does.

You can update your Joy-Con by visiting the system settings. Head on over to the “Controllers and Sensors” tab, and navigate to “Update Controllers”. The left and right Joy-Con will then be updated individually.

Thanks to all who sent this in.

A new firmware update for Switch has just gone live. Version 5.0.0 is out now for all users.

Today’s update doesn’t feature anything quite as big as version 4.0.0 in which support for video capture was added, but there are some additions and changes. These include Facebook and Twitter friends suggestions, new ARMS and Kirby avatars, and more. Nintendo also fixed the glitch with Play Activity

You can find the full details on today’s update below.

Atari intends to be present at the Game Developers Conference next week. Announced just recently, Switch will be featured in the company’s lineup.

Aside from RollerCoaster Tycoon, it also sounds like Atari Flashback Classics will be making its way to Switch. Atari’s titles for Nintendo’s console will be distributed by partners from Christmas 2018.

Thus far, two volumes of Atari Flashback Classics have been released on other platforms containing 50 titles each, with another one planned. It’s unclear if Switch will be getting the first edition or all three volumes (or something else entirely such as a bundle). We may learn more when GDC 2018 takes place between March 19 and March 23.

Thanks to AwesomePlatter for the tip.


Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse previously appeared on 3DS and Wii U. Now WayForward is bringing the game to Switch as well, according to a listing on the Australian eShop.

Pre-orders are actually live as we speak. That option should be extended to other regions very soon.

Last Day of June is coming to Switch in just a matter of days, a listing on the European eShop reveals. The game is currently lined up for March 16. If not on the same day, it should be out in North America very soon as well.

Originally released last year, Last Day of June is an acclaimed adventure puzzle title. It follows the touching story of Carl and June as you “try to unlock the sequence of events that could save the day” as well as June’s life.

We have more information and a trailer below:

A new update is rolling out for the Nintendo Switch Parental app. Version 1.50 is currently live on iOS. It doesn’t seem to be live just yet on Android as of this moment, but it should be very soon.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Everspace confirmed for Switch

Posted 1 week ago by in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Everspace, an action space shooter that also features roguelike elements, will be released on Switch. Rockfish CEO and co-founder Michael Schade confirmed the news in an interview with Wccftech.

Speaking about the company’s plans for Switch, Schade said:

Another Nintendo Direct is in the books. Many announcements were made for Switch, but even 3DS saw a bit of love with some surprise reveals.

Super Smash Bros. obviously stole the show. But other than that, we heard about more free content and a brand new expansion for Splatoon 2, plus Switch versions of Captain Toad, Okami HD, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Undertale, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and Little Nightmares: Complete Edition. Over on 3DS, Nintendo pulled back the curtain on a Luigi’s Mansion and Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story remakes as well as WarioWare Gold. That’s not everything either, as we even saw news such as a new Dark Souls amiibo.

Now that the dust has settled on the Nintendo Direct, how’s everyone feeling about it? Did the presentation live up to your expectations? Were you disappointed? What were your favorite announcements? Let us know in the comments below.
