Welcome to the Nintendo Wiretap: Weekend Edition! Each day the team here at Nintendo Wire works tirelessly to bring you the best, most relevant late-breaking Nintendo news this side of the Mushroom Kingdom. To help make ingesting all these meaty stories easier than Kirby hopped up on Miracle Fruit, we’ve compiled a handy list of noteworthy announcements and general industry happenings regarding the Big N in the last 48 hours. Without further ado, here’s a few things we’ve picked up over the wire this weekend:
