4 Million strong…. And growing! Pokemon fans around the world are absolutely in love with the newest games in this historic franchise. Nintendo has released a statement today sharing that Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have passed the 4 million sales mark. Put together, 4.5 million copies of the titles have been sold already for the big N. Nintendo also shared that the previous quarter was the “best-selling quarter for software in Nintendo 3DS history”.
Looks like everyone is still catching them all. Did you pick up the game?
Nintendo has announced that a mainline game for the Fire Emblem series is headed to the Nintendo Switch. No other details have been given thus far but they did mention that we can expect the title sometime next year. Fire Emblem Heroes was indeed announced during the official Nintendo Switch Presentation but this newly announced game will follow the traditional Fire Emblem gameplay.
Hopefully we will hear more on the game in the coming months…. Maybe E3 2017?
Last year Nintendo took a gamble at E3 and only showcased 1 game… That game of course was The Legend of Zelda The Breath of The Wild and it walked away as one of the most anticipated titles of all time…. This year we wonder if the big N will do the same only with Super Mario Odyssey.
NeoGaf user Las7 was nice enough to take the time to list the most popular Switch titles, by region, so check out the lists below. These are in order of trailer views for each Switch title. It’s a pretty sweet breakdown and interesting to see what Japan loves vs what we here in America are craving…
Check it out:
Mario – 7 mil
Zelda – 5 mil
MK 8 Deluxe – 2.2 mil
Sonic Mania – 1.9 mil
Bowser Family Fun – 1.8 mil

MK 8 Deluxe – 500k
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – 194k
We all saw this coming, but it has been announced that Gamestop has sold out its initial allocation of the Nintendo Switch. The retail giant is trying to get more units for their stores and may open pre-orders in the future. Since the Nintendo Switch will launch in only a month and a half, we don’t really see this changing anytime soon…
Nintendo has gone on record stating that there will be manufacturing more systems as well and we will not have a “NES Classic” situation on our hands. We will believe it when we see it (watch out for scalpers my friends).
Here are the games that will make it to the Nintendo Switch launch thus far. The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild will likely be the biggest launch game but BombermanR looks pretty decent as well. These are all the CONFIRMED launch titles but we expect the list to grow a bit before release (Ubisoft looks like they have a decent amount of games that could make launch).
Check out the full rundown below:
Confirmed for launch
Just Dance 2017
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Has Been Heroes
*We know that at least Steep and Rayman from Ubisoft will be headed to the Switch as well. Also, don’t forget about NBA 2K as well (Skyrim, Sonic and Splatoon 2 will make it to the system *after the “launch window”).
Nintendo has finally unveiled their Nintendo Switch and we have our reaction video for the presentation above.

One of the many Nintendo Switch titles that have been announced, Has Been Heroes, has been given a nifty little trailer. The game features turn-based and RTS game workings that puts players in control of three characters in three lanes. It seems like an interesting concept so be sure to check out the trailer above.
Has-Been Heroes is scheduled for a March release and will retail for $19.99. Seems like it could be pretty decent.
Get ready to fork over some big cash if you want extra Joy Con controllers for Nintendo Switch. The innovative little devices will run $79.99 for a set of two. The Joy Con controllers were shown in detail during the Nintendo Switch presentation and feature some nifty components. The Joy Cons will feature HD Rumble as well as motion controls.
