Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo
Here’s a French commercial for the retail release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo:
Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo (3DS) comes out at retail on November 23rd in Japan, November 25th in Europe, and December 2nd in North America.
Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System
Heads up for happy Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System owners who might be tempted by the Edge joystick (made by a company called Emio): it is not compatible with the console, despite the product description, the packaging, and even the manual saying so.
It’s not clear if this is intentional or not, but it’s certainly fishy that the company didn’t even bother checking out compatibility with the actual console. If you already bought one, you can get a refund from Amazon. If you bought it elsewhere, make sure to go ask your retailer about their refund policy: some of them (including BestBuy) have actually started recalling the controller itself.
Super Mario Run
Today, Nintendo shared a cute illustration for Super Mario Run, drawn by Toad himself:
