This has been a big week in Nintendo news. The company released its fiscal 2016 earnings report Thursday, revealing that the Switch has sold 2.74 million units since its release in March. Interestingly, Nintendo has also sold more copies of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch than it has the actual system, with 2.76 million copies of that version of the hit game being sold to date.

And finally, Nintendo announced last night that a 2DS XL handheld is coming to Canada in July for $199.99 CAD.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe-themed content also made its way to Super Mario Run this week.
