Don’t look now but a listing on Amazon has the upcoming Nintendo Switch game, ARMS, as releasing on May 2nd. While it may be a placeholder release date, it certainly would be a pretty nice surprise. The game was first shown earlier this year and has piqued my interest immensely. I think it’s going to be so much fun watching my kiddos duke it out in the game. Keep in mind nothing is confirmed as of this writing for the release date for ARMS, but we hope to hear something soon from Nintendo.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in April, ARMS in (possibly) May and Splatoon 2 around the corner? Yes please!

Enjoy my unboxing for the Nintendo Switch everyone.
Nintendo has uploaded an all new overview trailer for the upcoming Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is set to launch late next month and will be a strong title for Nintendo’s latest console. Even though we have the game for Wii U, I plan on picking this one up for the Switch due to the added content. Plus a full blown, console Mario Kart on the go just sounds too good to pass up.
If you have managed to snag a NES classic edition, you already know that the system is in dire need of a extension for its controller. The much sought after system, comes packed with 30 classic Nintendo games but didn’t quite pack the same punch when it came to controller length. While we hope you are enjoying some of the most memorable classics for the NES, the 3 foot controller cord length quickly became a nuisance. Enter My Arcade’s wireless controller. A prefect companion for your hard-to-find NES Classic.
How does this wireless controller fair? Read on and find out!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has already managed to break several records despite being released a week ago. The title has been gaining a ton of perfect scores from a number of different publications and 40 different sites submitted their review to metacritic praising the game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched worldwide on March 3 and is available for Nintendo Switch and Wii U. The game has already become Nintendo’s most popular release and will no doubt become one of the best titles to ever grace any console.
I am thoroughly enjoying my time with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so be sure to stop back for my official review.
Stay tuned as we pump out more Nintendo news. Game on.
Gamestop has gone on record stating that the Nintendo Switch was a massive success as a new console launch. GameStop Senior Director of Merchandising, Eric Bright, has given his views on how the launch went up and down GameStop’s throughout North America. Here is what he had to say regarding the systems launch:
“Stores across the country last night were packed with customers who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the brand new Nintendo Switch. We even had customers lining up as early as yesterday morning so that they could be one of the lucky ones to score one of the additional units for our walk-in customers. This is one of the strongest and most successful gaming console launches for GameStop in the last several years. For those fans who are still looking for the Nintendo Switch, don’t worry–we’re getting more. And, we’re pretty sure that there are a lot of gaming fans who pulled all-nighters last night playing their new Switch, and who also called in sick to work today with ‘game-fluenza’ just to stay home and play even more.”
Great news for Nintendo. Keep it here as we give you up to the date Nintendo Switch information. Stay tuned!
Hello again everyone and welcome to another video. This one displays a much needed wireless controller for the NES Mini (from MyArcade), so be sure to check out this Unboxing! Thanks to MyArcade for sending this out and be sure to stay tuned for a full review of the product. The NES Mini’s normal controller only gives gamers 3 feet of cable, so something like this

SuperData Research has gone on record stating that Nintendo’s latest home console, Nintendo Switch, could go on to sell over 5 million units in 2017 alone. The company also believes that it will be the devout Nintendo fans buying the console initially but it could well open up to mainstream appeal due to its innovative nature. Here is what they had to say regarding the system:
“The biggest challenge for Nintendo is to convince console gamers to purchase the Switch as a second device, as many have already committed to a PlayStation 4 (53.4 million installed base, worldwide) or Xbox One (26 million).
“Asking $300 for a new console without a bundled game is a comparatively higher barrier to entry for consumers, considering that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are already discounted and come with a free game.”
Sounds good to me. I can see it happening pretty easily actually. They have already announced that their initial 2 million should be quite scarce…. Only 3 million units to shift from now until the end of the year!
In case you missed all the sweet “Nindie” titles that are headed to Nintendo Switch, check out the video above and give it a watch. As we all know, the Nintendo Switch is set to launch this Friday, March 3rd and we are cautiously optimistic about the system (I can’t wait but I PRAY that this system does well at retail).
Indie titles looks like they will have a huge presence on Nintendo’s next home console, Nintendo Switch, so only time will tell if this huge presence will pay off.
These games do look very interesting to say the least.
