“The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get any in our stores, it’s out within hours. We anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year”.

Nintendo has to be pleased with news like this and it will only getting better. With games like Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the way, it looks like the Switch is going to enjoy a healthy year sales wise. Let us know if you have gotten your hands on one.

Super Mario Run Now on Android

Android owners can now play Super Mario Run on their mobile devices. The popular mobile game from Nintendo made a big splash on iOS and we can’t wait to see how it fairs on the Android platform. Nintendo will no doubt be pleased with sales and I hope we see the next wave of games for mobile platforms (I’m looking at you Animal Crossing). You will need to have Android versions 4.2 and up if you want the game to work properly.

If you are an Android owner, let us know if you plan on downloading the game.

Gamestop Praises Nintendo Switch Sales

Major retailer Gamestop has gone on record praising the recent success of the Nintendo Switch. The company has stated that sales for the system have been phenomenal and that they will continue to push stock of the hot console. Here is what they had to say about the system:

“The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii. Initial sales on this have been phenomenal. I can’t give straight numbers, but I can say we’re seeing one of the highest attach rates of software and accessories to a device that we’ve seen in a long time.”

“We’re seeing tremendous success with the power chargers for the Nintendo Switch, as well as people coming in and picking up extra Joy-Con so people can turn it into a four-player device. We will soon be going online with all-new bundles. Because of the popularity of Zelda, which is one of my top picks, we’re putting together a Zelda bundle of hardware and accessories for customers to pick up online.”

I am absolutely LOVING the new Zelda and have been taking my sweet time with the game. I am hoping to have a review on the website soon.
