Nintendo's latest announcement isn't a new game, or even a new console, but a new kind of content altogether. Aimed very much towards kids, but in typical Nintendo fashion, openly accessible whatever your age, Nintendo Labo is a brand new type of video game accessory that you build yourself.

Two kits will be available at launch - the Variety Kit, with 5 different Toy-Cons to build, and the Robot Kit, in which you make yourself into a giant robot - for $69.99 and $79.99 US respectively.

If you want to learn more about Labo, or why it's a welcome reminder of Nintendo's toy-maker heritage, check out the latest article about it on our sister site, GameCrash:

I wasn't sure if this day would ever come to pass, but the quirky Nintendo 3DS title Detective Pikachu has finally been announced and dated for a western release. Originally this "episodic", digital-only, action-adventure Pokémon game was released almost two years ago in Japan (February 3rd, 2016), but a second part was never released and it was never shown off internationally. Since then the incomplete game largely faded into obscurity outside of its connections with the upcoming live action Pokémon movie.

Now, oddly enough, not only will Detective Pikachu finally be released in North America and Europe on March 23rd, 2018, the 3DS game is receiving a complete physical version that tells the entire story - not just the portion that was previously released. Japan will also be receiving this new version on the same date.

Today's long prophesied Nintendo Direct has finally landed and revealed some new content coming to Pokken Tournament early this year.

Effectively launching a season pass called the 'Battle Pack', two waves of DLC content will be available for the Switch version of the game starting on the 31st January with Wave 1 and concluding on the 23rd March with Wave 2.

There are only initial details on content other than the headlining Fighting and Support Pokemon available within the DLC, but we do know that Wave 1 will launch with Aegislash - complete with its stance-changing gimmick from the main games as well as a new Support set starring Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu.

In Wave 2, Blastoise will join the fight as a playable character, with Mew and Celebi being added as new Support Pokemon.

As well as content not yet revealed, the Battle Pack will also brings with it new Avatar...

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are probably the Pokémon games I’ve looked least forward to, given least thought about and been least bothered about playing since the very beginning of the series’ history here in the West. I didn’t even pick up the games when they came out last year and even after receiving Ultra Moon for Christmas, it took until after the New Year for me to bother putting it into the 3DS.

It’d be wrong to not state that part of that is because I’m just ready to move on from the 3DS following 10 months of life with its successor, the Nintendo Switch. Had I been able to choose to play Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon on my TV or to play it in my hands in bed as...​

Over the weekend the latest Pokémon was officially revealed for Japan! The movie is currently without a name beyond Pokémon the Movie: 2018, but the announcement did include a trailer. Click through to watch it!...
So, ever since Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon launched (and honestly, before that too), we've been receiving a lot of questions about the Trainer Card Maker, when it might get updated with the new additions, when are new sprites/backgrounds/whatever coming in, and all sorts of other questions.

Pokécharms, while it is a very important part of our lives, is just that - a part of which. All of us at the Pokécharms staff are fairly busy individuals, with numerous obligations both on and off the web that are unrelated to the site and are, regrettably, at a higher priority. Things have been fairly hectic for our developers in particular - and that means unfortunate delays in non-critical systems, including the TCM.

Rest assured, however, that an update is in the works - and will be released as soon as possible. We apologise that 'as soon as possible' may not be as soon as you would probably like - but that's the situation at the moment.

We would also like to ask that you refrain from...
