This post is a bit moot seeing as how every man and his dog knows about this but here it is anyways. Nintendo are following up the mega successful release off the NES Mini with the news that now a SNES Mini is being released in September. It will retail for $119.95 and it'll ship with the following games:   Contra 3: The Alien Wars...
Yes, it's the 03/03/17 and while that may seem like just another date, it's also the launch day for Nintendo's latest home console, the Nintendo Switch! I was lucky enough to attend the launch in Melbourne which took place at Federation Square which was attended by many Nintendo fans eager to get their hands on the new console at the stroke of midnight. There was...

Yep, you read that heading correct. Swiss watch maker, Romain Jerome, has decided to join in the Pokemon 20th Anniversary celebrations and release a limited edition Pikachu watch that has a retail price of US$20,000! It comes packaged with a very swish Moon Invader titanium case and black baseplate with a cool lightning engraving. Still...flipping expensive and only for the biggest of fanboys/fangirls!

Nintendo had a big night last night finally revealing the covers off of their next home console. Known for the longest time as the "NX", we now know that it's called the "Nintendo Switch" and it looks very interesting. There seems to be a couple of different control methods consisting of a controller that has two ends that slide off and slide into the tablet...
I recently ran a post about the mini Famicom releasing soon in Japan which comes preloaded with a load of original 8-bit retro titles. Today let's take a look at the mini controller that comes with the unit. Clearly it's made for small hands but look how cute it is! Nintendo also posted some specs for the mini Famicom as well. At the bottom, the...

Straight off the bat, this looks amazingly gorgeous! It'll be available in Japan from November 10, 2016 and will retail for ¥5,980 with an AC adaptor sold separately for ¥1,000. Here's a video...

I've been doing a whole bunch of posting tonight about the major news to come out of the 2016 Playstation Conference which was held today in Roppongi Midtown Hall, Japan. If you missed the telecast, you can catch it below in English. I've taken the liberty to start the video from where the conference actually started as it was literally 14 minutes of the conference logo :)...

It's funny how the PS Vita does pretty good business in Japan which is evident by the amount of support it receives from developers releasing games for it. Yet at the same time, it's failed miserably in pretty much every other territory outside Japan. The success of the Sony handheld in Japan is enough to warrant two new colour models being released on December 1...
