Nintendo reportedly doubles Switch production again

  Nintendo reportedly doubles Switch production again Nintendo is going to ramp up Switch console production even more next year, anonymous sources told the Wall Street Journal. The company said at the end of October that it was doubling production and would produce at least 17 million units in its first year, but it looks like Nintendo now has even higher hopes for its smash hit console. The Switch had sold 7.63 million units between its March launch and the end of September, and at the price of $300 a piece, it’s been immensely profitable for Nintendo. Business and profits aside, it’s just an incredibly fun, well-executed gaming console. That’s why we’ve included the Nintendo Switch inThe Verge Holiday Gift Guide.

If Nintendo does take the Classic Edition route with the Game Boy, hopefully it doesn't miniaturize it like it did with other consoles. The Game Boy was small enough as it was, thank you. In July, Nintendo filed a trademark application that included an illustration of the Nintendo 64 controller

Nintendo recently filed a trademark for The Last Ranger in Europe. What kind of game is it? My guess is… Herok♞. Once again I say Nintendo does have new stuff, this just proves that further.

a group of people standing in front of a crowd© Provided by IBT US It appears Nintendo is preparing a couple of new games from various franchises. It was found out just this weekend that the Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company filed for a series of trademarks for many of its properties.

GoNintendo learned just this Sunday that the Kyoto-headquartered company recently filed for several image trademarks. The image trademarks were for various franchises and products including “The Legend of Zelda,” “Splatoon,” “Animal Crossing” and “Super Smash Bros.” There are also two image trademarks for amiibo and three standard character trademarks for “Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp,” “Marika” and “Pokemori.” Japanese Nintendo has obtained copies of the trademarks, which can be viewed here.

Nintendo’s old promotional Flash games are being brought back to life

  Nintendo’s old promotional Flash games are being brought back to life A modder, programmer, and all-around Nintendo enthusiast who goes by the name Skelux has been working on restoring all of Nintendo’s old promotional Flash games, as spotted by Motherboard. A functional way of putting animations and videos into webpages, Adobe’s Flash plugin provided a way to deliver rich web content that was widely adopted in the early 2000s era of the internet. Flash gave us some of the web’s finest moments, like Badger Badger Badger and Homestar Runner. It was also used by companies like Disney and Nintendo to create interactive content for promoting upcoming releases, usually in the form of small interactive website modules and mini-games.

Nintendo has filed for a new trademark in the US for something called S.T.E.A.M. Let IT fucking be miyamoto’s new IP I need some new games , I mean we all do . Aaaaarrrggggg I’M getting crazy!

The trademark was filed back in February, and it should be approved (or denied) within a few months. Usually Nintendo waits to trademark games and consoles until they’re very close to announcement, and maybe this could be one of the new games they announce at E3 in June.

The news comes around the same time that Reddit user DasVergeben shared a lengthy post covering various leaks about rumored video games. The leaker claims that he has “multiple sources” to back the information he is disseminating. He even established his reputation by pointing out that he was the one who leaked that the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Enchantress” are part of the Fighter Pack 3 of “Injustice 2.”

According to DasVergeben, the upcoming games from Nintendo are the following: a new “Pokémon” game for the Switch, “Metroid Prime 4,” a new “Animal Crossing,” “Mother 3,” “The World Ends With You 2” and a “Hearthstone” port for the Switch.

Dishing out a couple of details regarding the “Pokémon” game, the leaker said that Game Freak is being pressured to come up with the 8th generation “Pokémon” game for the Nintendo Switch. Game Freak reportedly hopes to release the game in 2018.

Spotify buys online recording studio Soundtrap

  Spotify buys online recording studio Soundtrap Music streaming company Spotify has bought online music and audio recording studio Soundtrap, it said on Friday, declining to give financial details of the deal. Stockholm-based Soundtrap allows its subscribers to have an online music studio and create music together with other people in real time, its website says."Soundtrap's rapidly growing business is highly aligned with Spotify's vision of democratizing the music ecosystem," Spotify said in a statement.Spotify is aiming to file its intention to float with U.S.

Nintendo has applied for a trademark for a game entitled Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace. In addition, the filing does offer some faint clues as to a potential platform.

There are very few hints about what this platform will be, despite the company filing trademarks for the new platform in both Japan and Europe. Games have nothing to do with it. The last two unprofitable Nintendo consoles – the Gamecube and (so far) the Wii U – have great 1st party games .

When it comes to “Metroid Prime 4,” DasVergeben said that fans should anticipate in-game footage to be released early next year. He also mentioned that “something” would be revealed alongside the in-game footage, but the term “something” is quite vague. “Bandai Namco is developing the game for Nintendo. I don’t know which development studio,” he added.

Comicbook reports that for the forthcoming “Prime” revival, Bandai Namco is rumored to be working alongside long-time “Metroid” series producer Kensuke Tanabe. Unfortunately, Bandai Namco hasn’t really issued an official announcement, so the outlet encourages fans to take this new bit of information with a grain of salt.

Meanwhile, DasVergeben also shared that “Mother 3” is real. “According to my source, it was completely localized and playable,” he said. However, he also revealed that something is holding back the release of the game. “The sad thing I’ve heard is that it is being held back for some reason, which all I know has something to do with not knowing which month to release it in.”

As for the other games in the rumored lineup, DasVergeben has this to say: “According to one of my sources, they claim that Square Enix is doing ‘The World Ends With You 2’ exclusively for the Nintendo Switch … Blizzard is preparing a ‘Hearthstone’ port for the Switch. I’m not sure when this will be announced due to the phrasing, but I heard about this when I went to Blizzcon … There is some kind of new ‘Animal Crossing’ that they hope to release next year.”
