The Ringfit Adventure accessory was released a while back and ever since it came out people have not been able to buy one. The supply has been short and Nintendo knows that. Nintendo issued a statement regarding the matter and mentioned that it knows that the Ringfit Adventure supply is not going well. Nintendo has promised that the supply for the Ringfit Adventure will increase as we move towards the end of the year. This means that more customers and dealers will be able to buy the product.

The Nintendo Switch is a very successful console that has sold millions of units since it came out in March 2019. Nintendo has done a great job of marketing the Switch and the new commercial features a man with Down Syndrome. This is a very positive ad with the theme “favorite ways to play”. I think that this is a very mature ad that shows the diversity of the audience and this is a very good business practice. Nintendo has also released a cheaper version of the Switch called the Nintendo Switch Lite. The lite has been very well received and plenty of people have already got it. It was sold out in most places at launch but it back in stock now. If you missed the latest Nintendo Switch commercial that features a man with Down Syndrome then you can check it out below: https://youtu.be/QwQbwaUps3U The original Nintendo Switch…

A new Nintendo Switch has been rumored for a while now and even though this new product does not offer better graphics it does offer better battery life. The older model has a battery life of 2.5 to 6.5 hours and can run The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for around 3 hours. The new model has a battery life of 4.5 – 9 hours and can run The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for around 5.5 hours. That almost doubles the battery life compared to the older model. The older model is version HAC-001 (product serial number starts with “XAW”). The new Nintendo Switch model variant is HAC-001(-01).

The Nintendo Switch Lite has been announced and has got mixed reactions. It turns out that the rumors of the Nintendo Switch Mini were indeed true. That was not the only rumor that we heard of. We also got word about a premium Nintendo Switch version that could run games at a higher resolution. This Nintendo Switch refresh is not coming out this year. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch Lite is the only hardware that is going to release this year. This means that at the earliest the Nintendo Switch refresh will release in 2020. That does not seem like a coincidence keeping in mind that the Xbox Scarlett and PS5 are going to release in the Fall of 2020. The Nintendo Switch does not directly compete with the Xbox One or the PS4. Nintendo Switch focuses on portability while the PS4 and…

Nintendo has just announced its new version of Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, a cheaper option for those who only want the handheld experience. But, Nintendo isn’t ignoring the original Nintendo Switch as it also getting a facelift. According to filings, Nintendo is updating original Switch hardware with a new CPU and storage. Nintendo has filed to FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to upgrade original Nintendo Switch with a new SOC and storage. The filing is to ensure that the original product is being updated instead of having it re-certified for sale in the US. Nintendo intends to update the SOC(system on the ship) which is the custom Nvidia Tegra processor. This could be to ensure that the upgraded version of Nintendo Switch is patched against the exploits in the original version. For those who don’t know, the original Nintendo Switch has future-proof hack due to an exploit present in Nvidia Tegra.…

The Nintendo Switch Mini is supposed to be the cheaper version coming out later this year. We have seen and heard plenty of leaks and rumors but we have not heard anything from Nintendo itself. Analysts have predicted that new hardware or a revision is inbound for the Nintendo Switch this year. In a recent shareholders meeting, Nintendo admitted that it knows about the rumors about the Switch Mini. It did not want to confirm or deny the existence of the device. Here is what Nintendo had to say about the Switch Mini: We acknowledge that there have been reports [about this]. Answering to rumors and speculations would end up stealing surprises from our customers and also be unprofitable to all of our shareholders, so we have no answer to that. As a general theory, we are always performing development of new hardware. While this is a generic statement, Nintendo…
