Huge batch of new consoles coming very soon

Currently, the only Nintendo Switch games planned to arrive in 2018 are Gamefreak's new Pokemon Game (believed to be called Pokemon Stars), Kirby, Yoshi and now potentially, Metroid Prime 4.

Speaking with Gamesbeat, Nintendo of America corporate communications director Charlie Scibetta explained the reason behind allowing Cross Platform Play between Nintendo Switch games with other platforms like Xbox One and PC.

After E3 2017, the Nintendo Switch is looking like a much more attractive platform - the only problem is that they're still hard to find.

While Nintendo Switch games on the handheld unit run at 720p resolution, games in console mode usually run near or at 1080p. Low production continues to be a problem for Nintendo, as everyone always seems to be out of Switch systems about as soon as they receive new shipments. "We had a good quantity for launch, we sold 2.7 million worldwide in that first month, said we're going to have 10 million [more] by the end of the fiscal year".

Trump takes jab at Democrats after special election loss
CNN's Chris Cuomo offered Democrats a lesson about failure Wednesday, one day after the party lost a special election in Georgia . On Tuesday, Republican Karen Handel defeated Jon Ossoff , a Democrat, in the race for Georgia's 6th Congressional District seat.

Trump slams Ossoff, praises Handel in tweets
That's exceptionally more than what an average House race costs, about $1.4 million for a winning campaign as of 2014. A May 22 poll by SurveyUSA for Atlanta TV station WXIA showed Ossoff with 51 percent compared to Handel's 44 percent.

Nintendo then continued on to say that it has been shipping as many Switch units as it can every week to retailers. The Japanese company is expecting the game to receive the same (or even better) response this time. Nintendo feels our frustration, and they've issued an official statement about their struggles. Despite the success of the Nintendo DS hand-held console and Wii, the company "failed to ride the wave of smartphones and was left out in the cold", said an analyst at a domestic securities house. The major issue, according to Fox Business, is that Apple is now their biggest competitor since they need the same components to manufacture their devices.

Speaking to DualShockers, a representative for Nintendo said Scibatta had meant "2018 and beyond" instead of simply "2018.", which is a rather small, but rather important detail. Still, true abundance does ultimately stop scalpers in their tracks, so hopefully Nintendo comes close to delivering just that as it rounds out 2017.

The popular game has drastically changed the company's outlook, however, enabling Nintendo to showcase the strength of its characters.
