The Nintendo Switch has only been out for a little over two months at the time of this writing, but it already has two killer apps in the form of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe. Of course, Mario Kart 8 technically isn’t a new game, as it originally came out on the Wii U three years ago, but as Waypoint’s Patrick Klepek points out in his excellent article “The Success of ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ Underscores How Badly Wii U Flopped,” Mario Kart 8 Deluxe might as well be a new game given how (relatively) few people actually played it on the Wii U.

Anything can happen in the world of pro wrestling, and that’s just talking about the scripted action. When you add in the element of live television (or being part of an arena crowd), the potential for something unplanned is even higher.

Kurt Angle made a long-awaited return to WWE programming after WrestleMania 33, taking over as the general manager of Raw for Mick Foley. Although the official word is that the WWE will likely refuse to clear the 48-year-old Hall of Famer to compete in the ring again, Angle is still holding out hope.
Nintendo is riding high right now and with good reason. They shipped one of the hottest toys of the holiday season last November with the NES Classic and couldn’t keep the thing on store shelves (the jury’s still out on whether this was due to higher than expected demand or Nintendo simply not having enough supply), and now their home console fortunes seem to have changed for the better thanks to the early success of the Nintendo Switch. This return to form couldn’t have come at a better time for Nintendo, as the company has struggled in recent years to remain relevant in an industry that, in some ways, had started to leave them behind.
