Everything Important From Last Night’s Nintendo Switch Announcement

Nintendo Switch? Nintendo Switch. Nintendo Switch. Nintendo? Switch. Nintendo Switch. Nintendo Switch? Nintendo Switch. Switch Switch Switch Switch Switch, Nintendo Nintendo Nintendo. Nintendo Switch.

Okay, that’s enough of that.

Last night Nintendo finally gave us the details on their forthcoming console, including launch dates and pricing. But since it was in the middle of the night on a weekday (and some of you had work in the morning), a lot of people didn’t get to see it. So with that in mind, we’ve put together a little cheat sheet to give you the gist of Nintendo’s latest and greatest.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Dead at 55

Nintendo has confirmed, in a brief but to-the-point statement, that company president Satoru Iwata has died of bile duct growth at only 55. As of right now, very little else is know about the circumstances, but it goes without saying that our hearts go out to Iwata’s family.

Iwata was a director within the company since 2000. He will be remembered fondly.

Bethesda Softworks Launches Website with Countdown, Fallout 4 Speculation Runs Wild

If you’re like me, you spent waaaaaaay too many hours back in 2008/2009 sitting in front of your 360, lights dimmed and eyeballs bleeding as you roamed the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Washington DC in Fallout 3. When you finished, you wanted more. MORE. Sure, Fallout: New Vegas was alright,  but it just wasn’t the same as Bethesda’s masterpiece.

After years of petitions, DEMANDING that Bethesda just give the people what they want, it appears that…something is about to be announced?

Yes, earlier today Bethesda launched a 24 hour countdown timer that is leading up to what most are assuming is the announcement that Fallout 4 is indeed happening. Or it will be an announcement about an announcement. E3 is only two weeks away, and most gaming journalists figured that would be a pretty good time to give some basic information.

Or maybe Bethesda is just screwing with all of us and we’re about to see what’s for lunch in the cafeteria next week.

At any rate, we’ll find out whether or not to stockpile our bunkers for the apocalypse tomorrow morning.

Update: The link now takes you to the Fallout 4 trailer. Rejoice!

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask Coming to 3DS

Yesterday, Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is getting rereleased, now for the 3DS. It’s a classic installment in the series, and many consider it to be the best 3D Zelda game. Or at least this one guy I talked to at a convention did – and he was super into it.

Anyway, the decade and a half old game should be arriving at your autostereoscopic 3D screened handheld in Spring of 2015, and I can see my fellow nerds rejoicing in the streets already.

Here’s the actual announcement:
