Nintendo Switch

Officially, the Nintendo Switch is not yet available for pre-orders, though some retailers have already started taking some. It’s quite likely they will open shortly after the Nintendo Switch presentation, on January 12th/13th. That’s also when most retailers will start putting up displays for the console in their stores.

But in Australia, JB HiFi didn’t wait to start putting up some displays, though those don’t show anything new: they simply re-use official press shots of the Nintendo Switch.

Monster Hunter Stories

Today, some new DLC for Monster Hunter Stories went live in Japan, with a brand new Sub-Quest to complete. If you do, you will be able to get the Molten Tigrex as an Otomon.

Here’s what this Tigrex looks like:
