So, I had a thought about something that’s lacking in the switch firmware, the social / sharing integrations for the switch is not good. It feels like it’s the bare minimum for sharing a video/photo to fb/twitter. For example, an autocomplete on a # tag would be really nice. as well as maybe a google drive / dropbox integration where I could save my video out to a cloud service without having to physically take my sd card to a computer. While I’m at it, the typing on the switch screen (since I primarily use it handheld) is not very good either. I don’t think Nintendo has done a lot of work to make that experience very good. Typing on a switch is not nearly as important as on a phone, but I think nintendo could take a note from iOS/android by helping the user “cheat” while typing.For example, you can change the touch areas for the screen based on the word that is being spelled, and provide more autocomplete suggestions at the top of the keyboard. Or perhaps allow third party keyboards? I know that all of these are not trivial, and that the biggest smartphone manufacturers still struggle with thisI guess this is only a problem for those of us who are primarily handheld users of the system. Really the keyboard isn’t my biggest gripe, it’s the lack of cloud storage integration.

Wa-hoo! It’s almost time for Mario Day! Every year, people celebrate the mustached hero of the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario, on March 10, aka Mar10 Day. For this year’s celebration, Nintendo is offering a special deal on select Mario games for the Nintendo Switch system. Between Sunday, March 10, and Saturday, March 16, anyone outside the Mushroom Kingdom can purchase select Nintendo Switch systems and one of five select games starring Mario for a suggested retail price of only $329.98. That’s a savings of $30, which amounts to 50 percent off one of the games.
People that already own Nintendo Switch can still take advantage of the promotion, as they can purchase a digital download code from participating retail stores or retailer websites to redeem in Nintendo eShop for the same five Mario games for only $39.99 each. Downloaded games from Nintendo eShop live directly on the Nintendo Switch system, so it’s ideal for gamers who want all their games in one place, as there’s no need to carry around game cards.
The five Mario games featured in the promotion, which all offer fun experiences that can be enjoyed together by the whole family, are:
Super Mario Party, an uproarious party game for up to four players. Play as classic characters in a series of more than 80 fun new minigames.
Super Mario Odyssey, a massive globe-trotting 3D adventure for one to two players. Using his new ally Cappy to control objects, animals and enemies, Mario explores multiple creative Kingdoms to collect Power Moons.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the multiplayer high-speed racer. Race friends through colorful tracks using iconic characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, and even Link from The Legend of Zelda series and the Inklings from Splatoon.
Mario Tennis Aces, a multiplayer sports game. Play locally or online with friends in fast-paced tennis matches across multiple modes.
“What better way to celebrate Mario Day than by playing some of the most popular Mario games on Nintendo Switch,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This promotion is a great option for consumers who want to pick up Nintendo Switch and some hit games at a value price.”
The Nintendo Switch system + one Mario game promotion will be available in store and online at participating retailers, while the individual Mario game sale is exclusive to participating retailers that sell digital download codes.
