A smaller, cheaper Nintendo Switch might be coming this year

Artist's estimate of how small the rumored Nintendo Switch revision might look based on a Nikkei report

Nintendo Delays Mario Kart Tour to Later in 2019

For those that have played the original game, getting to the maximum of level 20 is not all that hard.

Nintendo Co.is opening its second major official store, this time on its home turf, seeking to broaden the appeal of its gaming hardware and software.

Not many details were shared, but from what Nintendo does say, it'll be a "Puzzle" game. Nintendo's Q3 2018 profit amounted to 104.2 billion yen (roughly $1.2 billion CAD), up from 83.7 billion yen (about $1 billion CAD) past year.

Hot off the news that Nintendo has moved over 33 million Switch units worldwide, a rumor has sprung up claiming that the company is working on a smaller version of the hybrid console.

And while the Switch dominated its competition over the Christmas period, its sales aren't quite covering off the gap being left by the wilting sales of the aging 2/3DS. These changes, among other possible adjustments, could feasibly allow Nintendo to sell a different version of Switch for far less than the current $300 Dollars price tag. "Investors realized that the Switch audience was fairly limited", Cole said.

Given Illumination is behind popular animated movies like Despicable Me and Minions, the standard for Nintendo's next film adaptation of Super Mario Bros.is set pretty damn high.

Nintendo told us last October that Mario Kart was still on track for an early 2019 release, but the Japanese company today followed up with some disappointing news.

However, the “World” part of the games title throws us for a loop. "The franchise has more mainstream appeal than any other Nintendo title, and its fast-paced gameplay is a great fit for mobile", he said, adding that it could generate annual revenue of a billion dollars.
