Splatoon 2 Shows New Mode, Amiibo Functionality And Date

ARMS on Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch console has been doing so well that retailers aren't able to retain stock of the platform for more than a few hours, at least according to GameStop. The press release also notes that there will be "information about Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch games on the way".

Information on Splatoon 2 has been slowly trickling out, and a public "Testfire" demo period took place late last month.

With the release of Arms, a new yellow joy-con and built-in battery will be released.

Nintendo now hasn't announced any official release date for the two games, but what we do know is that they will hit stores this year.

In addition to this, a Brazilian rating board listing has outed another new game coming to the system, Sine Mora EX. Nintendo 3DS users can also expect news from the Nintendo Direct presentation, as it is likely Nintendo will provide more details about the upcoming Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Email Attacks Feat Unpatched Microsoft Word Vulnerability
It's not yet known if the use of Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit prevents the malicious malware from working. Unfortunately, turning off macros does not protect against this attack, as it uses a logical bug in Microsoft Office.

Nintendo may not be the first company to come to mind when we're talking about bug bounties, but looking at its new program for the Switch, maybe it should be.

Nintendo Switch continues to boost with popularity nowadays, becoming one of the most sought-after consoles of recent memory.

We'll find out when the Nintendo Direct conference goes live on April 12 at 11pm, United Kingdom time. Finding and submitting a big security problem could see you walking away with a cool $20,000.

It's a great day for all the Nintendo Switch fans, as the Nintendo Direct Conference is returning tonight. For starters, I hope there are more than the five characters I saw when testing out the game back in January at the Nintendo Switch event.
