Your Nintendo digest for the week ending August 9.
Issue 193 — August 9, 2020
Hi, issue #193 of your weekly Switch round-up here.
Pikmin! Dropped outta nowhere (yes, it's been rumoured forever) - but I kinda dig Nintendo just revealing stuff on Twitter directly. Pleased that more folks will get a chance to play an enhanced version of this gem as it kinda tanked first time round (Wii U says hi).
Also this week, Nintendo released some updated financial results and with everyone at home under lockdown one thing is clear — we've all been gaming more. Highlight stat for me: One in every three of the 60 million+ Switch owners have Animal Crossing. Insanse attach rate.
Another quiet week in terms of notable releases, but we've got just over 20 games hitting the eShop over the next seven days — the full list is below.
▶ Pikmin 3 Deluxe – Announcement trailer— Another Wii U port hitting the Switch in October - this time with a few nice extras. I played this first time around and it was great. I'd love to see the first two go up on the eShop too before October. If you really want to go deep on this, Arlo has an hour-long chat on the upcoming release.
Each and every week I bring you the latest Switch news and upcoming releases — if you enjoy this digest, consider supporting it for just a dollar a month. It really will help keep the newsletter sustainable long term.
