FamiTom posted a topic in Nintendo StoreSo there's this game I'm really looking forward to called "Death Road to Canada". The only problem? It was supposed to launch a week ago. If you haven't read the headlines, there was a terrorist attack in Toronto just two days before the game was scheduled for release. Many people were injured and some even passed away. In response to the attack, Death Road's publisher, UKIYO publishing, tweeted out this: "Hi Everyone, Due to the tragic events that happened in Toronto yesterday, we felt that now wouldn't be the right time to release Death Road to Canada, so we have put the release on hold for now. We apologise to all the fans and our condolences to those affected by the events." Now, I admit I was disappointed after reading this. I was getting ready to finally play this game after like two months of waiting, and I'd heard great things. But personally, I applaud their decision. Having lived in Canada for a long time, I understand that tragedies like these are devastating and the game's name could cause some... unfortunate misunderstandings. What I was surprised to find, however, was that not everyone felt the same way I did. Some people felt that the name wasn't that big of a deal. So that got me wondering, "Do most people feel this way?" I feel like this is a good place to post this kind of thing and ask for opinions from people who can understand both sides, as people who enjoy playing games. What do you all think? If anyone's interested, the new release date is next Tuesday. (Bonus poll: was that too soon?) I'll look forward to your opinions until then!
Remember how dbrand's switch skins flopped due to issues with the adhesive? Well, they don't anymore! And that's what this topic is about. In case you don't remember, or you've been living under a rock, here's what happened. A company by the name of dbrand, who makes skins for all sorts of devices saw a big opportunity in selling skins for the joy-con controllers on the Switch since there were only three colours (yes, I'm Canadian) available at the time. What they and others quickly found out, however, was that the adhesive that was being used on the skins permanently damaged the plastic on the controllers. They have been working hard for months now trying to perfect it, and here they are! (pic related) The company tweeted this out: Nintendo Switch skins are live: ✅ 7 new Switch-exclusive materials ✅ Tempered Glass 2-packs for $9.95 ✅ Ships immediately ✅ Won't damage your Switch¹ may damage your wallet The skins come in red, yellow, blue, pink, orange, purple, and green as well as matte white, camo black and black carbon fibre. The same colours are also available on the back of the Switch itself and the dock's accent colours and faceplate. I'll leave a link below if anyone wants to check them out for themselves: https://dbrand.com/shop/nintendo-switch-skin PostScript: Thanks to @Buzz for adding in that new sound when you like a topic!

So I was reading about how the president of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime said that since there are new Legend of Zelda and Super Mario titles coming to the switch, that there is a chance of a new installment in the Super Smash Brothers series. I honestly don't know about this one. It could be a port of smash 4, with all Wii U and 3DS stages, or a fully fledged game. What do you all think? Will Smash come to the Switch? Would you play it? Post your opinions in the thread and don't forget to vote in the poll.
With some recent news on sales figures, Nintendo just blew us all away.... Image source: YouTube Nintendo Switch sales worldwide have reached 1.5 million consoles sold, according to a report from SuperData. As first reported by GamesIndustry.biz, that figure comprises international sales recorded mostly during the console’s first week on the market. SuperData’s information comes from Famitsu, the premier Japanese gaming publication, and German-based global market research institute GfK. The specific breakdown has sales reaching 500,000 in the United States, based on SuperData’s own estimate. In Japan, Nintendo has sold 360,00 Switch consoles; that number is from Famitsu, the firm told Polygon. Outside of those two regions, the data gets less specific. Following the Switch’s first weekend on sale, the New York Times reported that the Switch had surpassed the Wii’s sales over a similar period. Nintendo later confirmed that the Switch was thus far its fastest-selling console in the Americas, without giving any specific numbers. Famitsu reported an estimated that the Nintendo Switch had moved 331,000 systems by the end of its third day at retail, which further checks out with SuperData’s research, especially when considering the Switch’s scarcity post-launch. “[The data] indicates that the Switch is off to a great start, but leaves unanswered the question whether the new device will be adopted by the mainstream on the long term,” SuperData founder Joost van Dreunen told Polygon. “Can the Switch grow its install base once the swooning around Zelda dies down?” It’s expected that Nintendo will speak more explicitly about the Switch’s sales performance when its financial quarter ends later this month. The company reportedly expects the Switch to ship 2 million units by the end of its first month on sale. It’s unclear whether it will pass that bar quite yet — and whether it will maintain its current momentum — but for an early March console release, it seems as though Nintendo has something to celebrate. What do you guys think. Were you expecting Nintendo to move this many units? Do you have the Switch already, or are you foaming at the mouth to get one? Let me know below! The important thing to remember here to remember is that the sales figures for BoTW and the Switch are almost impossible to separate at this point in time. What do you guys think? Source: Polygon
Boingshi posted a topic in Nintendo Switchhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=481Wxg_nT08 Apparently, the Nintendo Switch won't have a web browser at launch and may never have one at all. How do you all feel about this? Is it a deal breaker for you?
