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.
When we rounded up our staff's Weekly Upgrades last Saturday, our editors were taking ballet classes for a spin, upgrading our software, creating ingenious texting shortcuts, and finding creative ways to keep our kids occupied.
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.
The Super Nintendo Classic Mini went on sale today. That means it's time for us to crack open the console, take a long hard look at the list of 21 inbuilt games that come with it, and rank them all.
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.
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System officially launches in Australia on 30 September. Here's everything you need to know about buying one.
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.
Well, that was quick. Barely ten minutes after going on sale, the Nintendo Classic Mini SNES has sold out on Catch. Better luck next time, eh?
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System isn't due to hit stores until later in the year. However, you can reportedly snap one up this morning via the online deals site Catch (formerly Catch Of The Day.) Here's everything you need to know about the sale.
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.
The new consoles have finally been announced, the dust is beginning to settle, and now there are a lot of choices for anyone wanting to make their way back into gaming or starting from scratch. Maybe you don't know one PS4 SKU from another or have any idea who Nathan Drake is -- and that's ok.
Not everyone has the time or the motivation to be a gaming enthusiast, and so this guide is for the rest of you: explaining the consoles, the games, and the technologies you need to know about to hold up a reasonably detailed conversation about video gaming in 2017.
Don't count on Nintendo making enough Super Nintendo Classics for everybody. In fact, if you don't already have your pre-order locked in, there's a distinct possibility you might never get one.
