With a global shortage of protective facemasks endangering those on the front line in the fight against covid-19, Nintendo has looked in its back room and found 9500 N95 particulate respirator masks, which are being donated to responders near the company’s American operations.
If you, like me and several other Kotaku staff, have run into a consistent left Switch JoyCon signal issue, don’t worry: Nintendo says it isn’t in fact a hardware problem, but a “manufacturing variation”. The company also says to contact them for a fix if you’re running into the problem.
Sometimes you have to gamble. Sometimes you have to deny that you’re at a dead-end in life and push through. Sometimes you know you’re good at something and just want people to recognise it, and maybe pay you for it, too.
