  • Nintendo Switch's Sales to Customers Are Over 13 Million Units; SNES Classic at 4 Million Units

But it doesn't seem as if Nintendo has any intention of replacing the Switch with a more powerful model - quite the opposite in fact.

Brainseed Factory's charming and rather imaginative puzzle-platformer Typoman is making its way onto Nintendo Switch in the form of its later-released Revised edition.

So it's entirely possible that while the Switch is technically supported for seven years or more it's superseded by a newer model long before that. Another offering of the Nintendo Switch Online service is the access to classic games from Nintendo's back catalogue that have been reworked for online play and made to take advantage of the multiplayer features of the Switch. "Because the Nintendo Switch launch was not timed to the holiday season, you can not make a simple comparison between platforms", said Nintendo honcho Tatsumi Kimishima during the presentation of these graphs.

Kevin Rudd: Ex-PM sues Australian Broadcasting Corporation
ABC reported that ASIO seized hundreds of the documents on Thursday, but it was not immediately clear whether all were retrieved. The documents revealed a myriad of secret cabinet deliberations and national security positions over several governments.

The launch of adorable action adventure Kirby Star Allies has been narrowed from Spring 2018 to March 16, 2018, while the boundary-pushing, innovative fold-it-yourself interactive game project Nintendo Labo was announced for April 20 onwards (April 27 in European regions) earlier in January.

Based on the lifespan of Nintendo's DS and 3DS, it looks like Nintendo is actually threating the Switch as a handheld rather than a home console. With hardware revisions, power upgrades, and a steady flow of exciting games, both exclusive and not, it's not hard to imagine that people will remain interested in the Switch for years to come.

That being the case, Nintendo Switch Online should cost $19.99 a year (or $3.99 a month if you prefer).

Rex Tillerson at UT: 'I think there will be change' in Venezuela
Tillerson gave a speech in Austin , Texas, on Thursday, ahead of a 5-nation trip to Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Jamaica.

That's serious business. The Switch is actually selling faster than Nintendo's Wii, which was itself a runaway success.

Like the Xbox Live and the PS Plus subscriptions, getting the Switch Online will guarantee players free games every month. More details about Nintendo's new service would be revealed at a later date.

Nintendo has yet to announce anything about the games coming out in the second half of the year, so we don't know anything for sure. Up until now, Switch owners were able to already enjoy online multiplayer games without having to pay any additional royalties other than just buying the game.
