According to a post on reddit, it seems a small amount of people have had problems going online during Turf War battles, only to be disconnected about 30 seconds into the game. This started for players who updated to version 2.00. Now with 2.1.0, the problem still hasn't been fixed for thos affected. Ranked problems are not as bad, but it is still an issue. You can read the full details on this problem in the source link below. Have you been having connection issues since the version 2.00 update?
Saber Rider and the Star Sherrifs is currently being funded over at Kickstarter, with one of the goals being amiibos of the mechs featured in the game. Nintendo Life recently talked to project leader Chris Strauss about the possibility of amiibos being featured in the game:
Nintendo has guidelines for all their products, which you have to follow as a third party developer. If you do so, chances are high that your product gets approved. So unless they change their policy, our mecha amiibo has a good chance. And we know that Yacht Club Games also make their amiibo without the help of Nintendo. We have our amiibo already planned and are creating it as 3D model right now. The first prototype will probably be a 3D print.

In Japan, Etrain Odyssey IV, the first in the series released for the 3DS back in 2012, will be getting a "Atlus Best Collection" re-release. It'll be out on November 5 and retail for 3,218 yen. No word on a western release yet.
The other day, we got quite a bit of info dumped on us from Nintendo. It was a bunch of content that would have seemed right at home in a Nintendo Direct, but that never came. We haven't seen a direct since the passing of Satoru Iwata. That's completely understandable considering the circumstances, but that leaves us with a question. Will Nintendo return to creating Nintendo Direct presentations like they used to?
Was talking to a dev working on an unannounced Nintendo project last night who was unsure if Directs would happen post Iwata.— Tamaki (@Doctor_Cupcakes) September 2, 2015
I'm of two minds when it comes to this discussion. Letting the Nintendo Directs stay dormant after Iwata's passing could be seen as a sign of respect. With that said, I also feel like the Direct events were something special that Nintendo had under their belt. I'd hate to think that they'll be gone forever. Perhaps Nintendo is cooking up a new idea to take the place of Directs.
The Splatoon 2.1 update did remove the ledge jump glitch which we knew about before, but the out of bounds palm tree glitch on Arowana Mall is still in the game. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future update.
Interestingly, a Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars update was released today, but only for the Nintendo 3DS version. No new features, but it does fix a potential problem when uploading levels onto Miiverse. Hope everyone is still having fun tipping those stars!
Did you know that there is a Zelda: Link's Awakening enemy in Mario Maker? Or that Mario's outfit on the cover isn't new at all? Geekade has a list of five interesting Easter eggs you may or may not know about. Check out the source link below for the full list!
