Snipperclips confirmed for Switch launch day in Japan


Nintendo has confirmed that Snipperclips is going to be a day-one title for the Switch in Japan. While NoA/NoE haven't echoed this announcement, I would imagine a Japanese day-one launch bodes well for the rest of the world. Keep those fingers crossed!

Door is "certainly not closed" for Mass Effect Andromeda on Switch, will be considered if the platform succeeds

The following comes from Mass Effect Andromeda producer Fabrice Condominas...

First, we were too deep in development to focus on a new console. Secondly, the door is open, we have nothing against the Switch even if we have nothing for the Switch. If the Switch is a significant success we will revisit that. So the door is certainly not closed, it just wasn’t the right timing for us.

I am a big fan of the series and would love to see the latest entry come to Switch. I'm going to guess that it won't happen, but at least the producer is playing nice for now.

Switch sleep mode - fully-charged unit only loses 2% of battery after 8 hours

Coming from an ArsTechnica feature...

after eight hours in "sleep," a fully charged battery had only drained to 98 percent

I'd say that's pretty damn good. If you were wondering just how long your Switch can stay in sleep mode when undocked, I think you have your answer.
