You could call their repair number yourself and see if the automated message mentions the Joy Con problem.

Do you like platformers? Do you like spinoffs? Do you like Prinnies (DOOD!)? Do you hate titles that were only released on the PSP?

If your answer to all those questions was "yes", then I've got good news for you. Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded is dropping sometime this year as a Switch exclusive (no clue if it will stay that way).

Corocoro is apparently going to tease the next big action game on the Switch.

A couple of notes: Corocoro is known for embellishing if not flat out lying (I'm only reposting this because this news site is reliable), is a Japanese magazine aimed at children, so whatever it is will be probably be a Japanese game aimed at kids, and probably won't be the first to reveal whatever it is.

Well, it was only a matter of time before Nintendo made a Battle Royale style game, and knowing Nintendo they will do amazing with it, though I think they might be just a little late on the front. Hopefully they don't make it a Microtransaction-heavy game like Fortnite is, although they could potentially do it.

My guess is it's either a Splatoon Battle Royale or a new IP entirely.

Huh. I don't have a link for this one right... actually, give me a minute.

https://www.siliconera.com/megadimension-neptunia-vii-will-save-zero-dimension-on-nintendo-switch-on-march-19/

There we go. As you might have guessed by the link, Megadimension Neptunia VII is hitting the Switch in a week.

That's the good news. The bad news is that it currently appears to be eShop-only (yeah, real surprising given previous IF releases), and that the page may be live, but it's live only on the Japanese eShop.

But still, that's hope for us here in the west, right?

Welp, looks like my dream of using my tax return to finally get my hands on Ring Fit Adventure is delayed for a few months at least.

[up][up]Wait, so Megadimension Neptunia VII, the game that got me into Neptunia, one of my favorite games of all time, a game I already own on PS 4, is coming to the Switch where I can play it portably?

EDIT: Assuming this comes to the West...

EDIT 2: Anyways, I just used some of my tax refund to get both Three Houses and Luigi's Mansion 3 (I was going to get the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection on Switch but my Best Buy didn't have it).

While the fact that a demo for Trials of Mana is out on the eShop is rather well known (nobody's really been keeping it quiet), there was a surprise for me today in the demo list: There's a Disaster Report 4 demo out.

Bless Virtuos if they can really pull it off. I'd expect more current-gen games personally, but I've definitely been surprised a lot.

Some sales news for Animal Crossing.

  • Sold over 1.8 million copies in Japan at launch, beating Pokémon Sword and Shield's launch of 1.36 million.
  • Pushed more console sales than launch day.
  • The Switch has now outsold the Wii in Japan.

RIP anyone who clicked this thread hoping for a Direct announcement.

If the digital ratio is half-decent (at least matching Sword/Shield), then New Horizons will be the biggest launch ever in Japan.

Considering the virus quaranteening everyone right now, I'm not surprised Animal Crossing sold gangbusters.

Similar scenario to Sword and Shield where nothing of note is happening in the Nintendo sphere, too, so that helps. We don't even have any new games to look forward to right now other than BOTW 2 and a Metroid Prime followup that's up in the air.

Damn, when did Animal Crossing become such a big deal?

I missed the part where that's my problem.

Animal Crossing has always been a big deal. Wild World and New Leaf are officially the 7th best selling games on the DS and 3DS respectively. This makes it one of Nintendo's best series.

Also, people are looking for games in the stay-at-home world of COVID-19 and Animal Crossing is a new game coming out, so sales are being inflated as well.

Quarter 1 report should be coming soon, right?

The last day of Nintendo's FY is in six days. The next earnings report is not until May 7th.

Galaxy of Pen and Paper (which is somewhat misnamed, even in-universe) hits the eShop on April 8th, and is ready for prepurchase. There's also a bundle with both Knights of Pen and Paper titles.

Between this and Chroma Squad, it means 3/4s of Behold's entire catalog is on the Switch, and I'm willing to give them a pass on Out of Space not having a Switch version given it just launched on P Cs in the last month or so.
