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?

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”).

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.
Nintendo’s pro controller for the Nintendo Switch will set you back $69.99. The controller will pack a punch however and will feature motion controls, HD rumble, built-in amiibo functionality, and more. $69.99 is pretty steep for a controller but it does have a lot of functionality to it…
Nintendo has officially announced the price (and release date) of the upcoming Nintendo Switch. The system will launch worldwide on March 3rd and will retail for $299.99. This information comes from the Nintendo Switch presentation.
