Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers

Here’s various videos for Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers, including the European and North American launch trailers:

Nintendo Switch

Last week, Nintendo announced that they would start doing something unexpected in Japan… selling the Nintendo Switch without the dock, the AC Adapter, and the HDMI cable. This new SKU is primarily targeted at users who already own a Nintendo Switch in their household, and want a second one for themselves, their significant other, or their children (while sharing a single dock).

Naturally, that SKU is slightly cheaper than the regular one: 24 980 Yen (instead of 29 980 Yen). However, there’s a catch: you can only get it from the My Nintendo Store, you won’t be able to get it from regular stores.

In other words, this is a pretty limited offer, and it doesn’t look like Europe and North America are going to get it any time soon… if ever (after all, we never got to purchase additional GamePads for the Wii U, like in Japan!).

Nintendo Labo

Last week, Nintendo revealed the results for the “Best Decorated Toy-Con” category of the Nintendo Labo contest held in North America. You will find them on this page!

The contest is also over for the “Best Toy-Con Mod Using Nintendo Garage” category, but results for it will be revealed at a later date. As for the “Best Original Invention Using Toy-Con Garage” category, the contest runs until June 15th.

Nintendo Minute (Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection)

Here’s the latest episode of Nintendo Minute, which is about the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection!

Hi, today we have tons of special guests here from Capcom to play the Tournament Battle, a mode exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. We also have this really cool LAN set-up to do this. It’s very simple to set-up so we hope that you’ll give this a try with your friends when the game comes out on May 29! Don’t forget that we’re taking 2-weeks off to prepare for E3 so we will see you guys on June 15. Miss you already!!
