Switch sleep mode - fully-charged unit only loses 2% of battery after 8 hours

Coming from an ArsTechnica feature...

after eight hours in "sleep," a fully charged battery had only drained to 98 percent

I'd say that's pretty damn good. If you were wondering just how long your Switch can stay in sleep mode when undocked, I think you have your answer.

Pokemon GO earned 96% of all AR revenue in 2016


It's no surprise to see Pokemon GO take the lion's share of revenue in the AR field. How many other AR games are out there? I'm really struggling to think of another!

Nintendo on Switch core concepts, new installments in old IP, reaching Wii consumers again

Coming from a Verge interview with Nintendo's Shinya Takahashi and Yoshiaki Koizumi...

Koizumi: “When we were working on the early development of the Nintendo Switch, one concept that was very important to us was how do we get people together to have a good time. Whether you’re playing poker or blackjack, you’re going to be making eye contact with other players. We like to think of this as being integral — core to Nintendo’s DNA. The same DNA is even flowing through the Switch.”

Takahashi: “Certainly Nintendo has our long-time fans who are looking forward to new installments in our IP like Zelda, Mario,. and of course we’ll continue to make new games for those fans. Nintendo is an entertainment company first and foremost.

The ability to pick it up and hand it to someone else was a very important part of the hardware. We began to look at how can we leverage these technologies to create new experiences that will appeal to that wider range of ages and a wider range of interests than even the Wii audience had.

One of the things we’ve continued to consider for a long time is how we can give an audience that played Wii another opportunity to come into contact with Nintendo software. Adding this level of freedom to a game console means more people will see it in use. They’ll have more opportunities to have contact with games in general.”

Fan-Art: Make your own papercraft Switch

We've got some time to kill before the Switch comes out, so why not spend some of it making a papercraft Switch? You can hit up the link below for free printouts that you can then cut/fold into your own Switch. Pretend like you have the real thing, then most likely crumple it up and throw it away when the real deal arrives!
