Nintendo Q1 2018 earnings report - no briefing for analysts/media

Coming from the Wall Street Journal...

Nintendo’s earnings briefings for media and analysts have often been an opportunity for the company to unveil what’s coming up next, but by custom the company doesn’t hold one for the first quarter, which a Nintendo spokesman confirmed would be the case this time as well.

This is just a reminder, as the blurb above says. Nintendo has been doing this with their Q1 results for quite some time now, and they're not planning to change it this year. As for when the Q1 2018 results will be revealed, that info comes next Wednesday.

Step 1

Anchors Away!
When raising your stick to drop on the next rock, try to aim for the purple anchor points on them. A direct hit on the anchor is worth more points than simply landing elsewhere on the platform.

Step 2

The secret to racking up high scores is to land consecutive direct hits on the anchors. The first perfect shot is worth two points, the second is worth three, the third is worth four, and so on.

Step 3

Precarious Perch
There isn’t a lot of wiggle room when it comes to having a safe place for your Pokémon to stand, so take exceptional aim when landing your stick on a narrow rock.

Step 4

Sound Strategy
As you raise your stick, it makes a distinct clicking noise. These audio cues can help your timing as you determine how long you need to make your stick.

NECA doesn't have "any desire to revisit working with Konami again" to reprint their Castlevania line

Sounds like there's a bit of bad blood there! We've heard that Konami is a pretty hellish place to work. Seems like they might be a pain to work alongside as well. I guess the Castlevania content NECA released is the only line we're going to get.
