Speaking of Bayonetta, there’s an issue with the retail copies of Bayonetta 2 in North America… or rather, the download code for the first game, included with all copies. A small number of those codes were printed incorrectly, and therefore, cannot be redeemed on the Nintendo eShop. If you’re one of those impacted by this issue, you need to contact Nintendo Support!

Nintendo Minute

Here’s the latest episode of Nintendo Minute, which isn’t about a specific game once again:

Hi, this week we came up with a fun little challenge for each other. We both wrote two silly Nintendo-themed stories but left some essential words blank. The other person has to fill-in-the-blanks. Hopefully these stories made Wario proud! Can you come up with some stories in the comment section? It would be really fun for us to read through your creations! As always, we hope you enjoyed this video and we’ll see you guys next week!
