  1. I can’t believe you guys never posted the news about Snow Bros. Special, coming this year to Switch. Even after I messaged you about it around 2 weeks ago. Which for me was the most exciting Nintendo news I’ve heard in a LONG time.

    1. wait…you are not complaing about the lack of interest on punch out sequel, are you feeling well?

  2. After the “arguing” about Luigi’s Mansion 3, I bet Nintendo wants a Japanese boss there to see it is done the way THEY want. I bet this is the whole reason for the purchase to replace the president there. Just speculation ofc.

    1. I don’t see how that would work unless if they try to move their headquarters to Japan. If they try to appoint a Japanese president they will eventually become accustomed to the Canadian culture.
