Splatoon 2 Switch bundle is first for US (but good luck getting one)

Today Nintendo revealed the first Switch console bundle heading to the US. This isn't the first Switch bundle the world has seen, of course, as the US missed out on those excellent-looking Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundles earlier in the year. The focus of this bundle will likely get prospective Switch owners just as excited though, as Nintendo will be packing in copies of Splatoon 2 along with a unique Joy-Con color scheme.

The Mewtwo Pokemon GO countdown begins now!

Pokemon GO summer hype had another kick in the pants today as our countdown to Mewtwo hit start. A source familiar with the information (who wished to remain anonymous) informed SlashGear today that Niantic's target for "the arrival of Mewtwo" might be sooner than we first expected.

Mewtwo just broke Pokemon GO

Mewtwo just broke Pokemon GO

In the past two days, the rise in Google searches for Mewtwo in the Pokemon GO universe have expanded wildly. More than almost any other Pokemon GO-related term that I'm aware of - and I've been watching the numbers since day 1. The other thing that's risen sharply in the last 24 hours is Mewtwo-related complaints from Pokemon GO users that do not live in Japan - where this Pokemon is (thus far) exclusive.

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con colors can be customized, Japan only

Nintendo Switch Joy-Con colors can be customized, Japan only

Due to its popularity and novelty, and partly due to Nintendo’s oversight, the Switch has been hard to come by. Supplies have quickly dwindled and queues have gotten longer. While Nintendo has promised to rectify its production issues, it is also doing something a bit unprecedented for would-be Switch buyers, at least in Japan. The update Japanese online store for the Nintendo Switch now allows buyers to choose between a variety of Joy-Con colors as well as strap colors before placing their order. Of course, the Switch remains sold out anyway.

Pokemon GO Mewtwo raids today (how and when!)

Pokemon GO Mewtwo raids today (how and when!)

This morning in Pokemon GO, Mewtwo was released into the wild. He was released in Japan, first, during the Pokemon STADIUM Event. While our sources suggested that this event may have been the place where Ho-Oh was launched, it would appear now that either a last-minute change was made, or the true secret was extremely well held. This was the last day of the three-week cycle of Pokemon GO's Legendary Bird release: Articuno, then Moltres, then Zapados.

Retro Fighters Nintendo 64 controller is for a new generation of fans

Retro Fighters Nintendo 64 controller is for a new generation of fans

Retro Fighters has created a version of the Nintendo 64 controller designed for a new generation, as odd as that sounds considering the N64 console's retired nature, and it arguably features a better design than the original controller. The controller is targeted at diehard N64 fans who still play on their original console, not emulators. As such, this model has an N64 cable rather than USB, though the company says there are adapters available for using the controller with a PC emulator if you want that functionality.

Switch Joy-Con controllers have Nintendo in legal trouble

Remember the Wikipad? You'd be forgiven if you didn't, as it hasn't been available quite some time, but it's forcing its way back into the spotlight today. The creator of the Wikipad, a company named Gamevice, has brought a new lawsuit against Nintendo, alleging that the Switch's Joy-Con controllers infringe a patent it holds concerning detachable controllers on computing devices.
