Detective Pikachu, Outlast 2 hit Nintendo eShop this week

Today is a big day for the Nintendo eShop, but not for the reasons you might initially expect. While we're used to seeing the Switch get a lot of love in each week's eShop update, this week it's arguably the 3DS that's getting the bigger releases. That's all thanks to a famous electric rodent who's not only starring in his own game, but also gaining a voice.

Nintendo Direct: Super Smash Bros on Switch, WarioWare, Splatoon 2 DLC

Nintendo just finished its second Direct presentation of the year and suffice it to say, fans have a lot to look forward to across all the company’s gaming devices. Except for the Wii U. The Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS are the stars of the show, with both new games and ports of popular ones. The new titles still coming exclusively to the 3DS reaffirms Nintendo’s commitment to what some presumed would be left by the wayside in the Switch’s wake.

Nintendo Switch eShop has an indie-heavy week ahead of it

Tonight's Nintendo Direct will probably preview a number of big name titles from Nintendo and its third-party partners, but right now it's time to focus on some new indie games. Another Thursday has arrived, which means it's time for Nintendo to detail the games that will be heading to the Switch eShop over the course of the next week. While many weeks in 2018 have provided some big ports of well-known titles, that isn't the case with this week.

New Nintendo Direct for Switch and 3DS premieres tomorrow

New Nintendo Direct for Switch and 3DS premieres tomorrow

Lately, many Nintendo Switch fans have been driving themselves crazy with speculation about the next Nintendo Direct. Earlier in the year, Nintendo launched a Direct Mini that focused on some of the games coming to the Switch the year, but for fans, it didn't provide enough information. Nintendo usually pairs those Direct Minis with a second, full-length Nintendo Direct, leading many (especially those over on the Nintendo Switch subreddit) to assume that we'd get one in February.

Nintendo 3DS sales take surprising turn amid Switch success

Nintendo 3DS sales take surprising turn amid Switch success

With Nintendo looking to turn the Switch into the next Wii, it's tempting to assume that the 3DS is entering end-of-life. After all, we've had indications that the Pokemon and Fire Emblem series - two of the biggest 3DS franchises - are soon to jump ship to the Switch. Despite that, it would appear that the 3DS still has some fight left in it, as the latest numbers from the NPD Group paint a pretty encouraging picture for January sales.

The Nintendo Switch in particular has a big week ahead of it - arguably its biggest of the year so far - with the port of a much-loved PlayStation 4 game and the launch of an indie gem coming up in the next few days. As usual, though, there's plenty more to check out if you aren't really interested in the eShop's new headliners.

As Game Freak prepares to shift Pokemon away from the 3DS and over to the Switch, Nintendo has launched a big promotion to keep Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon players satisfied throughout the year. Last month, the company revealed that it will be handing out free legendary Pokemon to owners of Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon on 3DS throughout most of 2018. That promotion kicks off today.

It's Thursday, and by now Switch and 3DS owners should know what that means: a fresh batch of games is arriving on the eShop. Just the same as in recent weeks, the Switch is getting most of the attention this week, with a few indie gems hitting the eShop today. That doesn't necessarily mean that 3DS players are missing out entirely, and we even see the Wii U getting some love this week as well.

Pokemon has a “legendary year” in store for 2018

While we probably can't expect any more mainline Pokemon games on the 3DS, Nintendo isn't finished with the platform just yet.

If you were around for Pokemon's 20th Anniversary, you know what this means: We're about to get a bunch of legendary Pokemon for free.

Nintendo Switch was a big hit during its first holiday season

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.
