The games reportedly reached a total of 15.44 million shipped units during the company's fiscal year ending March 31.

A few months after this leak, Game Freak posted a job listing that suggested it's hiring new talent to help make a Pokemon game for Switch.

Matching the 3DS XL in various ways means you get features such as the C Stick and ZL/ZR Buttons, providing expanded control options in compatible games.

How do you feel about Nintendo Switch shipping via plane just to meet demand?


Nintendo has pulled out all of the stops to ensure they keep up with the demand for their new console.

Bizarrely, this means it's sold more copies than there are Switch consoles. The 28th of July will also see the release of Nintendo titles Hey! There are plenty of good reasons why Nintendo killed it, but as a way to get normal folks talking about Nintendo again, the NES Classic can only be called a success.

As its name indicates, the 2DS XL harmonises elements from three existing 3DS lines. It is not powerful enough to deliver 4K or HDR like the new PlayStation and Xbox consoles but it may have the special Nintendo magic that fans have been longing for. Some things that will be announced at E3.

After surprising the world with New Nintendo 2DS XL, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has confirmed that the company will continue to support the Nintendo 3DS family of systems with new games running into 2018.


Nintendo Switch has debunk artificial scarcity claims that the company is creating the situation to create a belief that theirs is a must-have product.

Many spectators wondered what the Nintendo would do with the 3DS line now that the Switch is both home and portable console - seems like it's not planning for the dedicated portable.

Given the console's overwhelming popularity, it's undeniable that any follow-up to Nintendo's Wii would have a hard time matching it.
