Nintendo Switch: adjustable charging stand

Last week, Nintendo announced an official adjustable charging stand for the Nintendo Switch. As the name implies, the stand is adjustable, which is pretty useful when you want to get a good viewing angle when playing with friends in different envrionments. The stands has an AC port on the side, allowing you to keep playing without having to worry about the battery life.

This adjustable charging stand for the Nintendo Switch will be released on July 13th in Japan and North America, and will cost $19.99 / 1 680 Yen + taxes. Nothing has been announced for Europe yet, but it’s quite likely the accessory will also be released on July 13th in that region (this does not seem to be a random release date!).

Here’s some pictures of the adjustable charging stand:

Splatoon 2

Over the past few days, Nintendo shared a few more videos for Splatoon 2, and more precisely the upcoming Octo Expansion. We get to see a level called “Stamped-Up Station”, but also one where the players has to play with the Inkjet, and another where you have to roll your way around with the Baller!

Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion (Switch) comes out this Summer worldwide.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Creating a Champion

A few months ago in Japan, Nintendo Dream released an official artbook for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, called “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Master Works”. And that very artbook will actually get an English release, courtesy of Dark Horse Books.

According to an early listing on Amazon, it will be released in November (on November 20th, to be precise), and will cost $39.99. Here’s the official description for the book (that does cover contents from the 2 DLC Packs):

This book features nearly fifty pages of sketches and official illustrations from Takumi Wada, two-hundred and ninety-six pages of design artwork and commentary about the making of the game from the creators, a fifty-five-page historical section that divulges the history of Hyrule as it is known in-game, and interviews with key members of the development team–Hidemaro Fujibayashi, Satoru Takizawa, Takumi Wada, and Eiji Aonuma. Witness the making of a champion!
