Back in 2012, Nintendo's official magazine, Nintendo Power, released its final issue, after more than 24 years of providing news and strategies for fans across North America. The magazine's discontinuation was a somber moment for many who grew up with it, and in the five years since, some have even tried to revive the spirit of the magazine with new publications, such as Nintendo Force. However, a few days ago, Nintendo announced that Nintendo Power is finally coming back—only this time, as an official Nintendo podcast.

Just a few weeks ago, Nintendo released The Champions' Ballad, the second piece of DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This new DLC was far larger than The Master Trials, which was released back in May, as it added new Shrines, a new quest line in the main story, and several new costumes and weapons to the game.

Although these two DLC packs were the only ones ever confirmed by Nintendo, it was never explicitly stated whether the game would be getting new content at some point in the future. However, in a recent interview with Famitsu, series director Eiji Aonuma confirmed that Breath of the Wild was officially completed, and The Champions' Ballad would be its last-ever piece of DLC.

The second generation of Pokémon is among the most beloved by fans, and it has seen tons of love from Nintendo in the past few years. Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver were remastered in 2009 for the Nintendo DS, and earlier this year, the two were re-released for the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. The third game in the series, Pokémon Crystal, hasn't been given nearly as much attention, and the only version available to this day is the original 2001 Game Boy Color release. That's all about the change, though, as Nintendo has just announced that the game will be coming to the 3DS Virtual Console next year.

It's been nine whole months since the release of the Nintendo Switch, and the console's been an unprecedented success thus far, breaking sales records for Nintendo since day one. Just now, Nintendo confirmed in a press release that the console has sold over ten million units worldwide, an impressive achievement, especially considering that the console's first holiday season is only starting. If this pattern continues, the Nintendo Switch will surpass the Wii U's numbers in just a couple of months; the latter reached lifetime sales somewhere around 13.5 million units in its five years on the market.

Over the past few months, Niantic has been slowly bringing legendary Pokémon into Pokémon GO. After introducing Lugia to the game back in July, it seemed inevitable that Ho-Oh, Lugia's counterpart in the Johto Region, would be coming eventually. Well, yesterday, Niantic officially released Ho-Oh in Pokémon GO—it's available worldwide and far easier to catch than the last few legendary Pokémon, as Ho-Oh can be found through regular Raid Battles.
