Super Mario Party comes out on Friday. It’s the series’ debut on Switch and the first main entry since 2015’s ill-fated Mario Party 10 on Wii U. It has 80 new mini games, one of which even utilises multiple Switches to create a shared, continuous screen.

What it doesn’t have is handheld mode support, the first in a handful of Switch games this season with hyper-specific controller demands that seem to run counter to the spirit of the Switch’s “play anywhere” mantra.

Over the weekend, this weird-looking Pokemon began popping up in Pokemon GO. Players wanted to know more about it, but they couldn’t even catch it; when they tried, the creature would often turn into a Ditto.

No shortage of memes and conspiracy theories ensued, but last night Nintendo introduced the creature in a new Pokemon: Let’s Go trailer as the mythical Pokemon Meltan.

Today Nintendo announced a new Pokémon: Let’s Go-themed Switch console as part of a bundle for the game’s November 16 release. It’s adorable and comes with Pikachu and Eevee-coloured Joy-Con. which Nintendo should really let us buy separately but because they’re Nintendo probably never will.
