More SNES Mini Systems Will Be Coming “Very Soon” to Gamestop

According to Gamestop, more SNES Mini systems will be available “very soon”. As expected, the SNES Mini sold out rather quickly however people who were looking for the system on launch day were bale to walk into retailers and pick them up. Nintendo has stated that the SNES Mini will be in full supply, so we expect big numbers to be both available and dos throughout the Holidays. I cannot wait to get my hands on one and will be sure to post a video on my YouTube channel once we get our hands on it.

Have you picked up a SNES Mini yet?

Netflix Headed to Switch

A Netflix customer service rep has told GoNintendo user KamehamehaX that Netflix is “locked and loaded” for the Nintendo Switch. The app has supposedly been submitted for Nintendo’s popular platform and it should be only a matter of time before the streaming video service shows up on the device. I think it would be pretty incredible if this happens sooner rather than later and we will keep you updated once the news hits.

Nintendo Spends $4.5m On TV Ads In August

It has been revealed that Nintendo has spent an estimated $4.5 Million dollars on advertising for the month of August. If this turns out to be true, it would be more money than Xbox and Playstation. Playstation campaigns amounted to a total estimated figure of $2.5m and Xbox at $1.5m.

It will be interesting to see how things ramp up in the coming Holiday season as the release of XBOX One X is fast approaching while Sony will be pushing its hardware to the fullest. Nintendo has gone on record stating that it may be hard to find a Switch this Holiday season so let’s all just wait and see how this pans out. It has been nice to see a ton of advertisements from Nintendo products as the Wii U didn’t receive this much love when it was available.

Are Achievements Headed to Switch?

Are Achievements Headed to the Nintendo Switch? Well according to an indie developer, they just may! The developer behind the upcoming Nintendo Switch game, Lichtspeer, has recently participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread. During the AMA Tom Tomaszewski from Crunching Koalas seems to have accidentally let slip that an achievement system is coming to Nintendo’s latest system. Rumors are pointing to an all new Nintendo Direct so maybe these achievements will make an appearance.

Of course, mark this all down as RUMOR for now BUT, we would be delighted if this pans out to be true. More as it develops.
