Pokemon Go Plus temporarily back up on the Nintendo UK store

GoNintendo Thought - Last week's video content from GoNintendo

Lots of videos to share with you guys this round-up. Let's see if you caught them all last week. I mean, it was a pretty busy week for Nintendo fans, wouldn't you say?! See you in a few, short hours.

Believe it or not, we've got 4 videos for you from the last 7 days. Yes, 4 videos for you to attach your eyeballs to! Have you seen them all? Check out the roundup below to see!

First up, we have my parents reaction to the Nintendo Switch trailer. I didn't tell them a thing about the trailer, nor did I answer their initial questions. I wanted to see how well the trailer did with explaining what the Switch was. See how it went below.

Next up, I did a silly social media video for the Switch. I've seen a lot of videos in this style over the last few months, so I thought I'd give it a go.

Next, I did a really strange video for the Switch. It's a very niche joke, so don't be surprised if it makes no sense to you. I asked you guys on Twitter if I should run with a stupid idea I had, and most of you said yes. This is the result!

Finally, we have the 584th episode of the GoNintendo Podcast. It's jam-packed full of Switch news and discussion from all different angles. Don't worry, the usual humor and stupidity is in there as well. Hope you enjoy this super-sized show!

IGN Snapchat story says Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer coming tomorrow (UPDATE)


I don't know what this trailer is going to be. It could be something we've already seen from Japan. It could also be something new. It would seem silly for IGN to tease a trailer that is already released, but that's just my own speculation.

Aksys teasing Zero Escape news this October

I don't know what this tease is about, but I guess we'll all find out together come October. Let's hope it means something good for Nintendo fans!
