Check out the new art above for the upcoming Nintendo Switch title, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It appears as though the game will come packaged with 5 different battle modes if the artwork above can teach us anything. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches on April 28 for the Nintendo Switch but we expect the big N to flesh out the game before its release.
What do you guys think?
Take a gander at the images above as they depict the Japanese public waiting to preorder Nintendo’s upcoming home console, Nintendo Switch. Preorders have sold out over here in the States (at least at Gamestop) so it will be interesting to see how quick the system sells out in Japan. Nintendo has promised that we will receive 2 million units during the release months and we expect the system to be a bit hard to find in the early going. If Nintendo plays this right, the system may outsell the Wii U rather quickly. I will be interested to see how this all goes down.
March 3rd can’t come fast enough! I can’t wait. Did you preorder the system?
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?
More as it develops. Who else is excited?
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.

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).
More as it develops.
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”).
