Nintendo Europe issues aware of misconduct allegations against Nintendo Russia's CEO, are running an investigation

I had guessed that Nintendo would step in and offer up a statement about Nintendo Russia's CEO before the week closed out, and for once, I turned out to be right! Nintendo Europe has offered up a statement on Mr. Haddaji, and it seems they're taking the allegations very seriously.

"We are aware of a video uploaded to YouTube recently in which Nintendo Russia’s General Manager, Yasha Haddaji, is seen losing his temper during an altercation with an external vendor in charge of a Mario Kart livestream. Mr Haddaji’s conduct and choice of words are most certainly not in line with our company values. We are also aware of further allegations that have appeared in the wake of this video and are now running a thorough investigation. We take these matters extremely seriously and will not comment further while we are running our investigation."

It seems we'll have to wait for the investigation to end to get an update on the situation. Good to know Nintendo has stepped in to properly take care of the situation.

Thanks to Ylitvineko for the heads up!

Panic Button believes they can still squeeze more out of the Switch

Warframe could be Panic Button's most impressive work yet. The game looks absolutely unbelievable, and it's offering all the same content found on other platforms. You'd think an offering like this would be brushing right up against the limits of what the Switch can offer, but Panic Button says that's not so.

In an interview with Destructoid, Adam Creighton of Panic Button says that there's still a lot of room to get the most out of the Switch. We know the company is working on other games for Switch, but those titles are yet to be revealed. I guess we're going to see what else Panic Button can get from the platform, and I know I'm excited to see what they pull off!

Switch GameCube Controller Adapter delayed to May 2019 in the UK due to "unforeseen production issues"

If you're looking to get a GameCube controller adapter for Switch in the UK, we've got some bad news. Amazon UK sent out emails saying the adapter was delayed, and now further information from Nintendo themselves confirms that the item has been delayed to May 2019.

Thank you for your recent pre-order of Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter for Nintendo Switch through the Nintendo Official UK Store. We are contacting you as the GameCube Controller adapter has been postponed until May 2019 due to unforeseen production issues. Please rest assured that once we have a confirmed launch date we will notify you and does not impact any other Super Smash Bros. Ultimate items you may have pre-ordered at the same time.

That's quite a lengthy delay! Remember, there are third party options that will work just the same, and the original GameCube controller adapter for Wii U will do the trick as well.

EEDAR study shows a sizable chunk of Pokemon GO players intend to buy Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, many are buying a Switch just to play

Pokémon, the beloved franchise that began in the U.S. as a 1998 Game Boy release and has since expanded to anime series, films, manga, trading card games and, of course, multiple million-selling video games, is set to launch its latest iteration on Nintendo Switch in the U.S. market this Friday. Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee are releasing into a highly competitive window on November 16.

EEDAR, an NPD Group company, has been preparing its “Mobile Syndicated 2019” report led by Dr. Heather Nofziger, who was kind enough to forward a few findings my way regarding the potential strength and scope of this launch and the potential impact it may have on Nintendo Switch.

This itself may cause some confusion. Why would a report on the Mobile space be relevant to a launch in the Console space? It turns out that the two are far more related than one might think, particularly when it comes to Pokémon.

Let’s start with Pokémon Go. Originally launched in July 2016, Pokémon Go became an instant cultural phenomenon. The momentum may not be what it was at its peak, but Pokémon Go currently ranks as the #3 top-grossing ranked title on iOS with millions of active players worldwide.

According to EEDAR’s research, Pokémon Go has tremendous awareness and trial within the mobile gaming community. Over 70 percent of mobile gamers are aware of Pokémon Go, while 29 percent have actively played it. This equates to over 55 million gamers in the U.S. with hands on experience with Pokémon Go. Most mobile gamers (60 percent) still playing Pokémon Go more than two years after launch have been active with the title since its launch.

Players of Pokémon Go average 23 years old, with half of the player base being between the ages of 18 to 34. They lean, as a group, somewhat more male (57 percent), and play games across multiple devices. Ninety-three percent of this group also plays games on Console, PC or Portable platforms. The audience for Pokémon Go is like that which plays games on dedicated gaming devices.

How does this relate to the pending launch of Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee? Well, here is where the data really gets interesting. Of currently active Pokémon Go players, 24 percent are also active Switch players. Further, 65 percent of this Pokémon Go player/Switch owner group intend to purchase and play Pokémon: Let’s Go. This works out to be roughly 15 percent of total current Pokémon Go players that intend to purchase and play the Switch version of Pokémon: Let’s Go.

In addition, more than 13 percent of Pokémon Go players who do not currently play games on Switch intend to purchase and play Pokémon: Let’s Go. This is a large group of individuals that intend to buy Nintendo Switch primarily due to the presence of Pokémon: Let’s Go.

Pokémon: Let’s Go isn’t even the first launch on a non-mobile platform that could benefit from the reach and appeal of Pokémon Go. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon launched in November 2016 on Nintendo 3DS and delivered the highest U.S. launch month dollar sales for portable titles in Pokémon franchise history. The sales data suggest that Pokémon Go may have had a positive impact on the sales potential of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

The data further suggest that the multi-pronged approach the Pokémon brand has taken to engage with fans across mediums has been successful in growing the total potential market. Mobile and console offerings appear to be working together to make the total pie much larger. Because of these efforts, Pokémon as a franchise has far more sales potential than were it to only focus on one specific platform or another.

Pokémon is yet another example where having gaming and other content available and accessible across multiple platforms has only increased the size of the total addressable market. More franchises would benefit from following Pokémon’s example; because when it comes to hours of consumer engagement, it’s best for a brand to try to catch them all.

Fake Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu ROM is bricking Switch units

Here's a bit of piracy that Nintendo might approve! As you know, Pokemon: Let's Go was leaked onto the internet last week, and pirates have been downloading the game ever since. To fight against that leak, someone put out a Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu ROM that hides something sinister. As soon as the user fires it up on their Switch, they'll find that their console has been bricked. That's learning a lesson the hard way!

Nintendo says N64 Classic is 'not in their planning,' talks Smash DLC, the Waluigi situation, cloud gaming on Switch, and more

Kotaku had a sit-down interview with Reggie Fils-Aime earlier this week, and we've already gone over the first part of their interview. Now they're back with another wave of questions and answers with the big guy, which you can read through below.

On the potential for an N64 Classic

“We were clear when we did the first two Classic series that, for us, these were limited time opportunities that were a way for us as a business to bridge from the conclusion of Wii U as a hardware system to the launch of Nintendo Switch. That was the very strategic reason we launched the NES Classic system. So while consumers may have been anticipating something, we view these as limited time opportunities. We’ve also now been very clear that as the consumer looks forward to engaging with our classic content that is going to happen more and more with the subscription service. I would not ever rule something out, but what I can tell you is certainly that’s not in our planning horizon.”

On more classic games for the Switch Online service

“As we look to the future, our subscription service, NSO, Nintendo Switch Online is going to be the place where you can play our classic content… We’ll see what comes next. As you have already pointed out, we haven’t even made the full library of NES games available yet. So this content has to be optimized for the Switch environment. That’s something we’re working very hard to do. Like you, I look forward to playing Metroid through the Nintendo Switch Online service and we’ll be continuing to release content that way.”

On the DLC characters for Smash Bros. Ultimate

“I haven’t talked to (Masahiro Sakurai), but I believe he was working hard to communicate two things: One, that the characters have been decided on. Second, that he is well in development on this, so please be patient. My interpretation is that there will be no fan polls, [and that] no independent poll trying to push Waluigi, as an example, will not influence the decisions that have already been made.”

On Waluigi being playable in Smash Bros. Ultimate

“We’re not here to discuss that at this point in time.”

On doing more with competitive gaming and eSports

- Nintendo will “work with the existing events that are in place, make the product available, encourage the community.”
- the Activision-Blizzard model of creating their own leagues for any game is "not an approach that we believe makes sense for our content.”

On cloud-based games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Resident Evil 7

“It’s specific to Japan because of the internet infrastructure that exists in that country. Very high-speed wireless capability. The ability to have a great experience in Japan is profound. The technical infrastructure doesn’t exist for that to happen currently here in the United States and so from that standpoint we’re looking at that activity as a very interesting test case and certainly is going to drive our thinking and our potential investments here in the Americas.”

On games like WarioWare Gold coming to 3DS instead of Switch

"...our development focus is on Nintendo Switch. You look at the plethora of content we’ve launched; the plethora of content we’ve announced. That is clearly where our development focus is. However, there are a lot of five, six, seven-year olds who have an opportunity to have their first gaming device and to have a fantastic gaming experience. And that’s what our dedicated handheld business is for, both the 2DS and the 3DS. ...we want the newest experience to be on Switch. That’s why the upcoming Luigi’s Mansion game is going to be a fantastic experience.”

As one last blurb, Reggie made mention that the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild paid expansion “has done exceptionally well in our marketplace.”

Nintendo Russia CEO caught losing his temper, cursing, and name-calling during a live-stream event

Yasha Haddaji, CEO of Nintendo Russia, is most likely having a very bad day right now. Fans in Russia have been complaining about how Nintendo's products/releases have been handled in the region, and most of them blame Mr. Haddaji. Now thanks to a live-stream recording, we can see that Mr. Haddaji might not be the best for the job.

Nintendo Russia was supposed to be streaming for an event called Level Up Days, and right from the start, you can see that there are issues with the stream. Not too much of a big deal, but then Mr. Haddaji comes onto the stream and starts going a bit crazy. It seems he's unaware that the stream is actually live, which is why he speaks without a filter. He's caught calling other employees names, cursing, and showing a general lack of temperament you would expect of someone in his position.

As of right now, we haven't seen any statements from Nintendo on the matter, but I would imagine one will be released before the week closes out. I'm guessing Nintendo isn't going to stand for this kind of behavior.
