Every console out there has a way to give yourself a custom avatar, and the Switch is no different, as a recent video shows off with a look at some of the avatar and Mii creation tools available on Nintendo's new console. The video showcases a plethora of the Nintendo favorites available for use including Link, Mario, and even Tom Nook from Animal Crossing. Once you've chosen your image, you also have the ability to change the background color, giving you an added level of customization. We don't get quite as good of a look at the actual Mii creator, but watching the video reveals that you will be able to change your Mii's pose and expression for use as your profile picture.

Hacking the NES Classic Edition has become quite the hobby for some people, with recent attempts successfully emulating the Super Nintendo, Game Boy, Genesis, and much more. A new video has surfaced recently taking things to the next level—emulating the Nintendo 64. Similarly to previous attempts, YouTuber 1lokolo1 used a program called Hakchi to load games such as Mario Kart 64, Wave Race 64, and Super Mario 64 onto the device.

A new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild recently released in Japan, showcasing some stunning visuals in order to further increase the hype for the upcoming release. The trailer also gave us a brief look at a new and massive creature in the game, one that strongly resembles a classic boss. Volvagia, the boss from Ocarina of Time's Fire Temple, is a long, flying serpent covered in flames with a long whip-like head of fire for hair. The creature, shown for only a second in the trailer, has got some fans speculating that this much larger serpent could be a call-back to Volvagia.

An item called the Motion-Sensor Bomb has been a staple in the Super Smash Bros. games since the series got its start on Nintendo 64, and many fans know of the item's extensive ties to the "Proximity Mine" found in Rareware's iconic Nintendo 64 adaption of GoldenEye 007, as well as their later Nintendo 64 hit, Perfect Dark.

But a fellow named Lewys Wilson has recently discovered that Super Smash Bros. Melee actually planned to include a second item from GoldenEye: the Time Mine. Head inside for more information.

Nintendo is ramping up its advertising efforts for the Nintendo Switch now that the release date is less than a month away.

The Switch isn't launching for fifteen more days, though it appears that some lucky Switch fans have been receiving their consoles a bit early. A new video was released on Vidme just over half an hour ago showcasing the console's UI and setup procedures. This marks the first time we've been able to see the UI in action, and overall, I think it seems pretty nice, if not a bit reminiscent of the PlayStation 4 menu.

One of my favorite things about Nintendo is their ability to hide little easter eggs within their new developments. I was blown away, for instance, when I learned that "Ballad of the Goddess" from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was a backwards version of "Zelda's Lullaby." The upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a few of these easter eggs hidden in it as well. Last year, it was discovered that the "Song of Time" can be heard near the Temple of Time if you listen carefully.

A new audio easter egg was discovered in the "Hyrule Fields" theme earlier this month. What could it be? You'll have to head inside to find out!

Though Pokémon GO was a huge hit around its launch last summer, things have slowed down significantly in the months since. There have been a few updates and events here and there, but nothing I would consider major. That's about to change later this week, as Pokémon GO is getting a huge update bringing with it a wealth of new content. Niantic is adding a few new berries and some additional mechanics, but the biggest part of this update by far is the inclusion of more than 80 brand new Pokémon.

Anyone with a Switch will be able to try out demo Splatoon 2 during a "Global Testfire" event in March. At specific times on March 24-26th, players will be able to test out new weapons, play new maps, and overall get a taste of what the full game will be like. Nintendo has also confirmed that Spectator Mode will be added to Splatoon 2, allowing two non-players the ability to spectate a private match, which Nintendo suspects will be ideal for live-streaming matches. In addition to local wireless, the ability to host games over LAN will also be added in Splatoon 2, which should make for much easier tournament and LAN party setups.

Hackers have discovered a new exploit in the original Pokémon Red and Blue that lets you delete other trainers' save files in the middle of a Pokémon battle. If you're a heartless monster, the exploit isn't even that difficult to execute; it might require a bit of technical knowledge, but this video shows you how the trick works and explains how to use it. There is a small danger of deleting your own save file in the process if you make a mistake, though.

Before Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS was officially released everywhere, many people speculated at the game's potential roster. Although we all know what the final roster looks like, there appears to have been some characters that were planned to be in Smash Bros. but were left on the cutting room floor. According to Source Gaming, some unused animation data was found on the Smash Bros. Wii U disc that indicates Peter Piranha was planned to be in the game.
