Nintendo Switch was a big hit during its first holiday season

Nintendo executives have another reason to celebrate this morning, as NPD Group has just delivered hardware sales rankings for the month of December. Continuing a trend that persisted throughout much of 2017, the Switch finished as the top selling console in the US, beating out the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. That is, of course, unsurprising, considering that the Switch is a new console while the Xbox One and PS4 have been around for a while, but the amount of Switch units Nintendo moved in December might come surprise even those who expected it to do well.

Nintendo 3DS production will continue, despite Switch success

When the Nintendo Switch first launched in March, many were left wondering about the fate of the Nintendo 3DS. After all, the 3DS had been Nintendo's main money maker for a few years at that point, but being a portable console, the Switch seemed to accomplish much the same thing. Nintendo ended up supporting the 3DS throughout the rest of 2017, but what's going to happen moving forward?

The Switch is starting off 2018 with four new games that are arriving on the eShop today. This is quite a small eShop update compared to some of the massive ones we received at the end of 2017, so the Switch is starting the year with more of a whisper than a bang. Nonetheless, if you're looking for a new game to play on your Switch, you might want to check out one of these four titles.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

A year ago, I reviewed Pokemon Sun and Moon and found that the changes they brought to the long-running (and in many ways stale) Pokemon series were great. After all, Pokemon is not usually a series that makes drastic changes from game to game. Though Pokemon Sun and Moon are completely different than Pokemon Red and Blue, that isn’t the result of some sweeping reinvention, but rather incremental changes that have been implemented over the course of the series. With Pokemon Sun and Moon, Game Freak rethought its approach and took more risks, and the results were very successful.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have been here for almost a week now, and while they’re mostly what we expected, the represent big things for the Pokemon franchise.

Nintendo Black Friday sale expands to Switch, 3DS, and Wii U eShop

Nintendo already discussed the hardware deals it has in store for Black Friday, but aside from mention of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Explorer's Edition, it didn't really delve into any software deals. That all changed today, as Nintendo revealed a rather long list of eShop discounts that are going live today. The list includes discounts for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U games, so you can probably find something regardless of the device you own.
