This morning Nintendo announced a new set of peripherals for the Nintendo Switch called the "Nintendo Labo" and they're made entirely of cardboard. Yep, Nintendo is now in the paper craft game and if you're looking to get into cardboard-video-game-toys, here's what you need to know.

One of the most entertaining aspects of a game console is the ability to play with friends. Unfortunately, some major game companies make it difficult to find and add friends to your list of potential multiplayer buddies. If you're using Nintendo's Switch to interact with your gaming brethren, here's how to get your pals onto your friends list, and deal with Nintendo's dreaded "Friend Code" system.

For Mario, 3D used to mean freedom. In 1996, Super Mario 64 broke Nintendo's mascot from the shackles of having to run in a straight line, letting the player choose their own path. But for quite some time now -- no matter how 3D the graphics may have been -- Mario's adventures have reverted back to running on a straight line.

With Super Mario Odyssey, that changes once more, and it's a glorious thing.

Nearly every Nintendo Switch owner I've spoken to has professed their love for the portable console. And while its slick design allows for convenient local multiplayer using the pint-sized, removable Joy-Con controllers attached to either side, they aren't exactly comfortable to hold. Luckily, Nintendo's latest 4.00 software update for the Switch lets you use one of the most beloved controllers of consoles past: The Gamecube controller.

I tried out the SNES Classic, and found that Nintendo has made some small but meaningful improvements to it over the NES Classic. I have no idea why, since the thing would sell out in 30 seconds anyway even if it were covered in rusty needles. Instead, it has a few nice new features, including a pretty smart system to let you jump back in time when you screw up.

We have some great news for everyone desperate to get their hands on Nintendo's upcoming SNES Mini Classic video game console. The company has confirmed it will be manufacturing additional units next year - and Australia will be receiving some of the shipments.

In other words, if you miss out on launch day (which is likely), you will still have plenty of opportunities to snap up the console in the future. Hurrah!

Dear Lifehacker, I'm keen to get my mits on the Nintendo Mini SNES video game console, which comes out at the end of the month. I wasn't interested in the NES version, but heard people had a pretty rough time getting hold of one!

So my question is: what are my chances of buying the Mini SNES on launch day? Will I be able to just walk into a store, or am I basically screwed?

At approximately 10pm last night, Harvey Norman quietly opened pre-orders for the highly-sought after Nintendo Classic Mini SNES. If you didn't hear about the sale, you're not alone - no announcements were made on social media and no press release was issued to journalists. We only just found out about the sale via a report on vooks.net. By then, stock had already sold out.

We're so conflicted about this.

After summarily ignoring our emails all week, Catch has finally confirmed that the Nintendo Mini SNES won't be going on sale this morning, as previously reported. Instead, it will be appearing at an undisclosed time as part of a flash sale.

That's right: if you want a Mini SNES, you will need to keep checking back on the hour, every hour. Tch.
