Added: 16.11.2018 16:00 | 0 views | 0 comments

"We haven’t even made the full library of NES games available yet".
Nintendo does not appear to be in any rush to revive its classic games collection on the Switch. In fact, the digital NES library only went live in September and the system is now nearly two years old. It's left fans hungry for more, after previous systems - since the Wii Virtual Console era - have offered access to Nintendo's larger retro library. This includes hits from the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 64, along with selections from plenty of other iconic generations.
With all of these old-school gems yet to be released, it has raised concerns about the Japanese company's future plans for classic content.

Shares fell to as low as ¥31,350 at one stage (which is as low as it has been for almost 18 months) before stabilising just above that figure as the day drew to a close.
Of course, investors have been sceptical of Nintendo's this financial year for some time now, with current sales leaving concerns over how the console might perform throughout the holiday season, but today's drop has also been impacted by a significant share price crash for Nvidia - the company which supplies chips for the Switch. Nvidia's shares dropped by 16% in after-hours trading after it was forced to lower sales expectations for the holiday period.
