Almost two weeks have passed since the release of the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo could not be happier with its sales. The Nintendo Switch is currently selling so well due to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo Switch owners will not have to wait long for another major Nintendo franchise to launch on the Nintendo Switch though, because Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is coming soon.

A new tidbit shared on Twitter suggests ...[Read More]
Cosplay is a huge part of every PAX event. Overwatch, League of Legends, Mario, Zelda, Deadpool, Kingdom Hearts, and too many others to list were all represented this year.

While the stream is still going, the stream started with the announcement of Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia for the Nintendo 3DS. It has stated during the stream the game is coming out May 19th of this year. I’m just excited with each announcement as I type this. I will be updating this post as I get the Nintendo email, which provides future details on the game and other information.
Not that this is a huge surprise, but a statement was released by the American video game retail giant GameStop in regards to the recent pre-ordering of the new Nintendo Switch. While many are still skeptical about the new system, the turn out to pre-order the Switch was overwhelming, with many of our local GameStop stores selling out within an hour or so after opening. I got to witness the excite...[Read More]
