Switch lottery lines continue in Japan, TV reporter can't find a Switch after visiting nearly 50 stores
Over 3,000 people, and 105 Switch units to sell. That was the situation with the latest Switch lottery, which was held in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro. Nintendo is definitely getting more stock out there, but the situation is still a rough one.
Japanese morning show Tokudane sent out one of their reporters to assess the situation. The reporter was looking to walk into a retailer and buy a Switch. As you can guess, it didn't go well. After visiting 48 different retailers, not a single one of them had a Switch to purchase.
Looks like Sonic fans are eager for a bit of old-school fun. Sonic Mania has already grabbed the top spot on the Switch eShop in North America, the UK, and other parts of Europe. We had no doubt the game would be a success, and it's great to see it take the #1 spot so quickly. How are you enjoying your time with the game so far?
It's amazing how this simple change makes the Metroid series feel completely different. I really liked this feature a lot. Throw it in with the melee counter, and Samus is feeling more badass than ever!

Kirby does balloon up to a bigger size in Kirby's Blowout Blast, and Susie can't seem to get enough of it. I wonder if she's seen how big he gets in games like Kirby's Return to Dream Land!
