Switch featured on Big Brother Italy

While I can't personally vouch for it, I hear that Big Brother Italy is among the most popular shows in the country. That would certainly make sense in this instance, as it's clear Nintendo struck an advertising deal with the TV show producers to feature the Switch. Sure, it's a glorified advert, but still a smart way to get the system out in front of people!

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp hits at least 5 million downloads on Android devices

While we don't have specific figures, the Google Play store has been updated to show a rough estimate of how many times Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp has been downloaded. According to Google's data, the game currently sits somewhere between 5 and 10 million downloads since launch. That's a pretty fantastic start for the game, and more are sure to come during this holiday weekend.

Super NES Classic Edition Back At Best Buy Stores Saturday

The retro gaming Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) is back at Best Buy on Saturday, Nov. 25 – in stores, only.

When stores open at 9 a.m. local time Saturday, limited quantities of the SNES will be available in about 1,000 Best Buy stores across the country.

The Super NES Classic Edition will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Our stores will offer a ticketing process before we open for customers waiting in line – the same ticketing process we’ll offer for the Saturday doorbuster deals.

We will only pass out as many tickets as we have systems available, with a limit of one per customer. Super NES Classic Edition will not be available on BestBuy.com.

This mini system includes 21 pre-installed games, from Super Mario Kart to Street Fighter II. Bonus: It also includes the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game.

To play, just plug the console into any HD TV using the included HDMI cable. Not only does Super NES Classic Edition come with two controllers, but the system is also compatible with the NES Classic controller.

Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses producer looking to do a Mario symphony, says a Smash Bros. symphony is "too complicated"

Coming from a GamesIndustry interview with Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses producer, Jason Michael Paul...

"I recently put together a really nice proposal for a Super Mario symphony. And we'll see. Hopefully it will stick. I also had another concept called Super Smash Symphony, but that's not going to happen. It's too complicated."

Could you imagine all the legal red tape you'd have to cut through to make a Smash Bros. symphony happen? The Nintendo portions are easy enough, but any other characters included in the games would probably result in a nightmare of legal clearances. While it's a bit sad to know a Smash Bros. concert may never happen, we can at least cross our fingers for the Mario proposal!
