nintendo Stories Today

When Nintendo announced Labo (a platform designed to get children interested in engineering) back in January, many fans were concerned that cardboard may not have been the best material choice. While cardboard is flexible, inexpensive, and easy-to-use, it can also be susceptible to spills, tearing, squishing, things that most children have been known do. When pairing this concern with cost to replace a kit, it seemed like a gamble if you and your family would get your money’s worth. Nintendo put many of these fears to bed today by announcing replacement parts can be purchased directly from manufacturer. expand full story

expiredNintendo’s official Switch AC Adapter drops to $25 Prime shipped (Reg. $30)

Amazon offers the official Nintendo Switch AC Adapter for $24.97 Prime shipped. Normally $30, this is the lowest we’ve tracked and the best available. After recent developments with the Switch 5.0 OS update, it’s hard for us to recommend you buy anything not officially licensed by Nintendo, which this charger is. Rated 4.5/5 stars.

nintendo Stories March 27

Update 3/28: Nintendo recently released an update to its Switch OS, 5.0.1, which has “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.” While Nintendo doesn’t specifically state that this update fixes the accessory compatibility issues, we’ve seen reports that some end users are no longer having issues with third-party accessories. Until Nintendo makes an official statement regarding third-party power accessories, we still hold to our position that you should only use first-party power accessories for the time being.

One of the best parts about Nintendo’s Switch console is its USB-C port. With this universal port, you can charge it, send the display to a TV, and more. It’s a data input, output, and power input port all in one. Because of this, many people own third-party accessories to use with their switch. Things like a third-party dock to avoid paying over $70 for the official one, or maybe using an external battery to extend gaming sessions while on the go.

I’ve even used external batteries with my own Switch when traveling and it’s a beautiful feature. But, it looks like after Nintendo released the 5.0 version of its Switch OS, some of these third-party accessories could be bricking units. Read on for more information on how you can keep your Switch from dying.
