    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Nintendo Switch eShop has been updated to feature 3 new games. Has-Been Heroes and Snake Pass will both be released this week on May, 28th on the hybrid console. While LEGO city Undercover will arrive for Nintendo Switch on April 4th.

    The only physical cartridge release of those 3 games is LEGO City Undercover, and it can currently be bought on Amazon. If you buy the game before the official release date on Amazon – Prime members will receive 20% off the original price. So if you are in the market to buy LEGO City Undercover, Amazon may be the way to go!

    Snake Pass and Has-Been Heroes are both Nintendo eShop only releases, while the Nintendo Switch has 32GB of internal storage, it is still good to know how much space these games will occupy on your console.

    Has-Been Heroes – 753MB

    Snake Pass – 3.7GB

    LEGO City Undercover – 7.1GB

    If you bought your Nintendo Switch on Launch day, and been downloading a lot of Games from the eShop, chances are you are starting to run low on space. The Nintendo Switch offers expandable storage. SD cards may be inserted behind the stand to be able to install more games. SD cards can be purchased from major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and even Toys “R” Us.

    The Nintendo Switch was released almost two weeks ago on March 3rd. The console has since then been sold out at major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Toys “R” Us and more. Many have tried to get a hold of the hybrid console by buying it from eBay and other trading websites well over the $299 retail price. It comes at no surprise that Nintendo has now announced that 1.5 Million units have been sold since launch. Reggie – President of Nintendo North America has stated earlier that 2 Million Nintendo Switch consoles would be made available at launch worldwide.

    In Japan the console has sold 329,152 in it’s first week, followed by a sharp decline in the second week of only 61,998 consoles sold. This means the Nintendo Wii U performed better in it’s first two weeks than the Nintendo Switch. Multiple factors may have contributed to this – the Wii U had launched in December. The holiday season is always beneficial when launching a new product. The Switch was launched in the beginning of March, and sold 1.5 Million units without the help of the Christmas and gifting season. Furthermore limited stock could also have contributed to the sharp decline in sales within the second week, as many people are still trying to buy a Nintendo Switch without much luck. Nintendo has recently promised to make more consoles available towards the end of March.

    Japan Hardware Sales

    Switch – 61,998 (329,152)
    PlayStation 4 – 28,902 (31,065)
    New 3DS LL – 18,360 (18,433)
    PlayStation Vita – 8,398 (9,889)
    PlayStation 4 Pro – 6,398 (6,742)
    2DS – 4,094 (4,147
    New 3DS – 1,227 (1,268)
    PlayStation 3 – 639 (615)
    Wii U – 430 (565)
    Xbox One – 117 (147)

    Nintendo is hard at work on making sure enough games will follow the few, but excellent launch titles. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the next major game to be released, but still 6 weeks away. Nintendo has pushed the advertising machine on the Splatoon 2 Testfire weekend, possibly to fill the gap in between now and the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe release day.

    Either way Nintendo will certainly focus on selling their console to make the platform more attractive to more developers. As 3rd party publishers naturally will want to release their games on the hybrid Console if Nintendo manages to sell a lot of them. Let’s not forget that Nintendo still has many aces up it’s sleeves, given that most of the popular IP’s are yet to come to the Switch. Animal Crossing, Smash Bros, Pikmin and more are just a few of them. Mario Odyssey, Mario kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Skyrim are only a few highlights we will get to see on Nintendos Console this year.

    The future of the console is bright, and early sales numbers seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

    Character Customizations have never been greater in Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch and Wii U than any previous Zelda game in the franchise. From huge hoods, to pointy hats and bandanas – you have dozens of choices to dress up Link in any fashion you may desire. However, long time Zelda fans are wondering where the Iconic Pointy green hat is hidden, or why it didn’t make it into the game?

    The answer comes from Breath of the Wild art director Satoru Takizawa who claims ” As the graphic fidelity has increased it becomes more difficult to make that hat look cool. ” He also stated that ” As the game becomes more realistic it’s difficult to present it in a way that’s appealing. ” Satoru also explains that in recent games fans were often criticizing the hat ” If you look at Twilight Princess, I really made the hat long, so it would flap in the wind and move around. But because of that people were like ‘What’s he got? What’s in that hat?’ We’re reaching our limits as to how we can make it look cool. ”

    Zelda breath of the Wild Green Tunic

    From Reddit User: Mitch3315

    It may seem like a good explanation, but Zelda fans are still disappointed not to be able to wear the iconic hat. However, upon finishing the 120 Shrines you will be rewarded the well known and classic Green Zelda Tunic. If you are far away from finishing Breath of the Wild, but still want to have an alternative to the green tunic, you can also unlock the slightly more modern looking green tunic using your Amiibos.

    • Link Amiibo: This Amiibo can get you some pieces from the Armor of Time
    • 8-Bit Link Amiibo: You can use this one to unlock an old-school outfit, from the Amor of the Hero
    • Toon Link Amiibo: You can use the Wind Waker and Smash Bros Version to get a lot of fish, as well as a chance to drop the Armor of Wind.

    [dropcap]A[/dropcap]nimal Crossing has become one of Nintendos most popular franchises. The last installment of the series Animal Crossing: new Leaf was released in 2012, and has recently received a major update. Fans of the series have since waited for a new game. Even though Nintendo hinted a new Animal Crossing coming to Nintendo Switch, no official announcement has been made. However, it is safe to assume that a new Animal Crossing is in development and ready to be unveiled in the not so distant future.

    Just like any other fan, we are most impatient to see what a new Animal Crossing would be like. We have gone ahead an listed 5 of our biggest wishes for a new AC game. We would love to hear what your biggest wish for a new Animal Crossing would be – leave it in the comments below!

    Nintendo Switch

    Share a Town with Your Friends

    Sharing a town with your friends. On the Nintendo 3DS version you are currently able to share a save game, and have a second player move into your town. The second player can of course not be the major, and playing simultaneously is not possible. In the next Animal Crossing installment ( possibly on the Nintendo Switch ? ) we would love to see the option to share a town with a friend. You would be choosing a friend to move into your town. The player will be able to occupy a home, decorate their house, and contribute to your town. It would be very similar to inviting a friend over, except this friend can actually feel right at home, and if you ever want to visit them, you would just have to walk over and knock on their door. It would give a lot more purpose and motivation for players to visit other towns, if they can actually live a happy Animal Crossing life in your world too. Think of it as your vacation home in the world of another Animal Crossing player.

    Open for Business – Run Your Own Store

    Run your very own store. Being a Major in Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a lot of fun, but what keeps us from actually running our own store and giving Tom Nook some competition? Run the store and sell what you have! Your Furniture collection, Fruits, treasures from the island and more. There could be an option to leave the store open even when you are not playing the game. Giving players the option to brows your inventory and purchase from your shop, whenever they want. This could eventually become the ultimate Animal Crossing trading market. This would be similar to how the dream codes work, so you would not have to worry about any harm being done to your town while you are away. However, if you do sell some of your items, you would be collecting the bells next time you return to your village.

    Nintendo Switch

    More Town Customization

    The option to decorate your town as you please for any season or holiday is something we would love to see! Trees with Christmas lights in winter are great, it would be so nice to go all out and beyond, and add your own touch to it. Place a bench, a flower pot or whatever you wish anywhere you like, pretty much like floor tiles.

    Larger Towns

    Increase the size of your village slightly allowing more villagers to move into your town, and giving more room to decorate, and create the town of your dreams. Especially with all the Amiibos players are collecting, it would be great to have more of your favorite villagers live in your town at the same time.

    These are some of our biggest wishes and dreams for a new Animal Crossing. We would love to hear what you would like to see in the next AC game. The Animal Crossing Mobile game is set to release in 2017, and is supposed to connect to a Nintendo Console based AC game according to Nintendo. While nothing has been confirmed, the frequent releases of the mobile version could hint at Nintendo holding back until they are read to unveil the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing that will go along with the mobile version. We will learn more in the near future.

You may even look at friends you have added to your buddy list and see their stats as well. The Nintendo Switch came out on March 3rd and remains to be sold out at major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Toys “R” Us and more.

    The Nintendo Switch has been sold out at major retailers like Amazon, Toys “R” Us, Best buy and more. The few people who got a hold of the hybrid console are confused on how to turn the Switch off. Although this is a pretty straight forward action on most electronic devices, Nintendo has made this a little bit more complicated then necessary. The Nintendo  Switch has an outstanding battery life in sleep mode, making it unnecessary to turn it off completely. It only uses about 2% of Battery life within 8 hours of it being in sleep mode. If you want to turn it off regardless, here is how to do it.

    Pressing the power button on the Nintendo Switch will only put the console into a sleep mode – it will not turn it off. If you want to turn it off completely to conserve battery life, you will have to bring up the power option menu to do so.

    Here is what you need to do

    • Access the console directly, not using the controllers at all
    • Hold down the power button for more than five seconds
    • A popup will appear on the screen, giving you the option to put the console in sleep mode – or you may chose more power options.
    • Select the ” Power Options “
    • Here is where you will have the option to either restart the console or turn it off entirely.

    You now have turned off your Nintendo Switch. It will not use any batter life, if you are traveling and you know you wont be playing for several hours, this may be a good option for you.
