Switch @ GameStop

Yesterday, GameStop sent a press release to announce that they had reserved all of their initial allocation for the Nintendo Switch. In other words, if Nintendo doesn’t allocate them more units, the Nintendo Switch is already sold out at GameStop. Naturally, the store chain is working closely with Nintendo in order to get more units, and they will make an announcement when they have them.

For the president of GameStop, this is the proof that players are really interested in Nintendo’s new home console. As comparison, GameStop had 500 000 units for the Wii U at launch, and all of them were pre-ordered.

Nintendo Switch Press Event

Here’s some pictures from the Nintendo Switch Press event, held on Friday in New York:


Many people find that the two Joy-Cons, when docked on the Grip, look like a cute puppy. And the thing is… that’s exactly what the engineers at Nintendo were aiming for when they designed the thing!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

According to a Nintendo rep at the Nintendo Switch hands-on event in Paris, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will let players chose the language for voices, including Japanese. This is pretty good news for those who prefer to play with Japanese voices, though obviously, it’s best to wait for confirmation from Nintendo before celebrating…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch, Wii U) comes out on March 3rd in Europe.
