The week’s biggest Nintendo news stories and the Arlopinions that accompany them! In this edition: Nintendo drops a “””surprise””” Mario Direct, Pikmin 3 mysteriously returns to the Wii U eShop, Nintendo reverses their stance on pre-order cancellations, the Gamecube was almost a Switch, Kensuke Tanabe says a bunch more stuff to make me mad, and Pikachu is a car now or something.

Here’s a link to the Nintendo Life article on the Family Video Game Database, with more info and a link to the website itself.
