Metroid: Samus Returns gets a special edition New Nintendo 3DS XL

We haven't seen much of our friend Samus Aran in recent years, but that's all about to change with the release of Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS.

Samus Returns is coming up later this month, while Metroid Prime 4 is slated to hit the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2019.

Next Nintendo Pokemon Direct hints at Switch game reveal

Nintendo made an interesting announcement today, revealing that a Pokemon-focused Nintendo Direct broadcast will take place later this week. This is interesting for a few reasons, the first being that this Direct broadcast will be live streamed just a few short days before E3 kicks off. It's also curious that this Direct broadcast will be dedicated to Pokemon, when there doesn't seem to be all that much to talk about in regards to the mainline Pokemon series.

5 things Nintendo needs to do this year to maintain its momentum

Nintendo has reason to celebrate today, as the success of the Switch has sent its stock price up over the peak it reached during the initial Pokemon GO craze. Nintendo's share price rose to ¥31,880, which represents year-over-year growth of 102%. That's impressive, but it comes nowhere close to how high Nintendo's stock was during the Wii era.
