Companies face industry-wide capacity shortage for key components!

Nintendo is in a race with Apple and other device makers to get its hands on the necessary components to keep up with the red hot demand for its latest game console the Switch.
Nintendo does not have to worry about Sony or Microsoft, it has to be worried greatly about Apple, as big 'N' tries its hardest to increase production of the Switch to met raising holiday demand, they are noticing that Apple is buying up all the key components for their 10th year anniversary launches of the new iPhone and MacBook's, etc. which leaves Nintendo Corp. with some hard choices coming up.

If you want to chat, you must do so only with online buddies in your Switch friend's list!

In an interview with UK-based gaming publication GamesTM, via Japanese Nintendo, we now have a better understanding of what to expect from Splatoon 2 in the way of voice chat.
The upcoming new version of Splatoon for the Nintendo Switch will add voice chat, but big 'N' has decided its best to limit it to 'friends only', and sadly using 'voice chat' on your Switch will require you to have your Smartphone with you and an app installed on it also! :)

WARNING: PLEASE KEEP YOUR MODDED NINTENDO 3DS HANDHELD OFFLINE FOR NOW!

This week, 3DS hacking communities are clamoring over a so-called “ban wave” that permanently knocks systems offline.
Once the 'ban wave' news started spreading like wildfire across the 'scene forums', Nintendo issued the following statement to Kotaku:
But, right now people with 3DS's banned are still trying to pinpoint down what big 'N' is now looking for, is it CFW like Luma, is it using FreeShop, it is converted 3DA to CIA, is it converted GW saves, no one knows for sure what the 'triggerpoint' is right...

Nintendo shares hit 8-year high

Nintendo shares rallied over 5 percent on Friday, hitting a more than eight-and-a-half-year high after major game maker Capcom announced a popular game would be coming to the Switch, with investors hoping this will help sales of the gaming giant's flagship console.
Capcom before stated that it all depends on 'sales' of their exclusive version of Street Fighter, if they are going to invest into producing more Switch ports, but it seems that they will at least port over the popular 3DS version of Monster Hunter to the Switch hybrid, and that news has sent big 'N' shares soaring to new all-time highs, as investors hope it will take off and greatly increase Switch sales! :)

Presentation slides reveal more about the rumored crossover

Yesterday’s leak of the key art for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has led to more information about the still-unannounced Nintendo Switch turning up online.
It seems Ubisoft recently had a closed door presentation of their upcoming Switch game which will 'feature' Mario inside the Rabbids world, and of course the 'slides' leaked right away, and it at least helps to confirm the many rumors that game is real, but it leaves us with new questions about the gameplay itself, and how it all works out, and how much Nintendo has in their say in its overall design.

Our MaxConsole Game Reviewer @JHardin1112 Is Proud To Be Covering The Latest Nintendo 3DS Release!

Created by Tanukii Studios, Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D: Space Recipe for Disaster is the long awaited follow-up to the world’s first chase-em-up game Go! Go! Kokopolo, which released back in 2011 for the DSiWare service.
For the uninitiated, the chase-em-up style is where you attack enemies and they chase you down. It’s a sparsely populated genre, but certainly the two titles that I’m aware of in this list are very much worthwhile to play.

SRFD begins with a brief cutscene showing a space bunny crashing into a meteor and dropping pieces of some kind of a stone tablet (or something) down to earth. The 3 pieces land and disrupt the 3 playable characters. They soon gave chase after the bunny and thus the game begins. Each character has their...
