● It’s now 23 September in Japan and Yamauchi Nintendo & Co. Ltd. formed 130 years ago making hanafuda playing cards, which for the last quarter accounted for just $4.37 million of the company’s earnings, just 2% of Nintendo’s total business.

● COMG! points for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening are at 106. The game is estimated to open under 130,000 in Japan, although digital will likely be high due to it being another one of the Nintendo Catalog Ticket titles.

● Annapurna Interactive and Simogo will be bringing the acclaimed Sayonara Wild Hearts to the Japanese Switch eShop on 27 September priced at ¥1,450. Check out the launch trailer here and the full eShop line-up here.
