  • Would my Nintendo Switch overheat if I leave it charging overnight?

    Best answer: While any electronic device (like the Switch) will generate a little heat while charging, it's way less than the amount of heat generated when in use (especially when doing stuff that's processing intensive or using a lot of extra components at the same time... Pokémon GO on mobile devices, for example,... show more
    Best answer: While any electronic device (like the Switch) will generate a little heat while charging, it's way less than the amount of heat generated when in use (especially when doing stuff that's processing intensive or using a lot of extra components at the same time... Pokémon GO on mobile devices, for example, utilizes GPS, tilt sensors, WiFi / Cellular Data, touch screen & even BlueTooth for optional external devices).

    Assuming you provide it adequate ventilation & reasonable ambient temperatures, you should be OK with overnight charging.

    The general rule of thumb for electronic devices is... If it's too hot (and / or humid) for you, it's DEFINITELY too hot (and / or humid) for your devices (as electronics prefer a little cooler temperatures & a little drier air than humans).

  • Why did the Nintendo Switch prices go so up?

    Best answer: THE PRICE HAS REMAINED THE SAME! The MSRP for the Nintendo switch is $299.99 (roughly $300) US & all major retailers have the Switch listed EXACTLY at that price (for marketing reasons, since charging more would cause potential buyers to look elsewhere for a lower price) & any quick research on their... show more
    Best answer: THE PRICE HAS REMAINED THE SAME! The MSRP for the Nintendo switch is $299.99 (roughly $300) US & all major retailers have the Switch listed EXACTLY at that price (for marketing reasons, since charging more would cause potential buyers to look elsewhere for a lower price) & any quick research on their websites (as I've checked Gamestop & Best Buy on this). Any deviation on that price is likely the result of bundling (with games & other extras) OR resellers attempting price gouging (causing artificial shortages in an attempt to increase their profit margin).

    If you live outside the US, prices may be readjusted to current exchange rates... since is pretty common between US & Canada where $1.00 US is currently ~$1.27 CAN (at time of post)... so $300.00 US could be noted at $400.00 CAN (although the current exchange rate would ~$382.68 CAN). The same can be happen in Asia (where prices may be based on the Japanese Yen) & Europe (where prices may be based on the Euro).

    Please do a bit more research on pricing & provide a bit more information prior to asking similar questions.

  • If i delete my game of of the wii shop will i get the points back?

    Best answer: No it doesn't work that way. If you delete the game off your console you can still re-down load it. You can't deleted the fact that you've purchased it!

  • On my nintendo wii remote plus, the 4th led doesnt flash when i turn it on. is this normal?

    Best answer: DON'T PANIC! NOTHING IS WRONG WITH YOUR WIIMOTES!

    When turning on any Wiimote (for the Wii OR Wii U), the flashing lights indicate battery strength on a 4-point scale that the Wii & Wii U will report as well. As the batteries wear on, less lights will start flashing (going from 4 & eventually stopping at 1) when you wake up your Wiimotes. When you only see one flashing light is when you'll probably want to consider replacing the battery (as they're running low) as many of your games will annoy you with a "Low Battery" warning during gameplay.

    This helpful feature is noted in the Wii Operations Manual as a graphic...

    * For Original Wii (RVL-001) owners, this is listed on Page 25
    * For Wii Family Edition (RVL-101) & Wii Mini (RVL-201) owners, this is listed on Page20

    (You can download PDF versions of these manuals at https://en-americas-support.nintendo.com... )

    You can also see the source link below that notes this as well (in word form, NOT in a graphic) about this.


    The only time you may run into MINOR concerns is if you put in fresh batteries & the 4th LED doesn't flash, despite the system saying the Wiimote has a full charge. In this case, it's possible that the 4th LED may have burned out (highly unlikely, since LED's tend to last a couple of decades) or shorted out.


    Hope this helps!

  • Is it possible to restore a deleted file on mario kart wii?

    Best answer: My condolences for your lost data. Unlike computers, there's no way to "undelete" data on a console. Once it's deleted, it's gone forever!

    To make matters worse, Mario Kart Wii's safe file is copy-protected (as noted on Page 4 of the game manual) due to online multiplayer support, so there's no official way to make any back-ups either.


    Unofficially, there's two ways to back-up such data... but it requires you to modify your Wii (WARNING: VOIDS WARRANTIES) & use a homebrew back-up method.

    First option is the SaveMii tool within BootMii (which create a snapshot of your Wii's internal storage at that particular time) that can be use to effectively "roll back the clock" on the system with the RestoreMii tool... but this can be lengthy (around 20-30 minutes for SaveMii to create the back-up, around 5 minutes for RestoreMii to make the necessary changes) & does the entire system (as an "All or Nothing" deal), so you cannot choose what gets changed.

    Second option is GaveGame Manager GX, which allows you back up & restore any game (even copy-protected ones) to an SD card or a USB storage device.


    HOWEVER, much like PC back-ups, they have to be made BEFORE the damage occurs... which is the sad truth here.

    The only other protective measure (which is a bit late to protect your lost data, but may protect other stuff) is to go all out on the parental controls & lock down everything. I know you'll have to enter your security PIN any time you want to play a game or do anything drastic, but it'll present a roadblock to anybody who doesn't have that PIN.


    Normally Nintendo places obvious warnings about data not be recoverable in these situations, but a quick require of the Mario Kart Wii Manual & the various versions of the Wii Operations Manual as well as the Channel & Settings Manual... instead of resorting to on-screen warnings generally asking you to confirm your decision (as you generally have to hit delete two or three times before goes through).


    I know this isn't the answer you want to hear, but it's the harsh truth that you'll have to live with. I understand the pain of losing a long-standing save file, having lost a save file on a Pokémon game with over 500 hours logged due to the death of an internal battery. Just get through the common steps of grief, make some contingency plans (to minimize risks in the future) & move on.

  • Wii or Wii U?

    Best answer: Wii was discontinued years ago, and the Wii-U can play all Wii games so there's no reason to buy a Wii.

    So far, the Wii was the one that boosted Nintendo uphill. Everyone knows the Wii U was a failure, I think mainly because of lack of variety of games. The Nintendo Switch is doing pretty well so far, but they still need to compete with Microsoft and Sony. Can the Switch be more successful than the original Wii? Or maybe the company should focus more on mobile gaming (?). Mario Run didn't do much because everyone didn't want to pay the $10. They are supposed to be releasing a new Zelda game; hopefully they'll know better this time. Anyways, what does anyone think about this? Will Nintendo make it through the gaming industry?

    Best answer: Despite regional restrictions & power differences (Japan runs at 100v, US runs at 120v... so there may need a step-down converter required to avoid issues), the Japanese Wii will work on US TV's with minimal issues.

    Both US (North America) & Japan run on the NTSC analog standard, but there's only a small difference in black levels... so you might need to make a small tweak in brightness & contrast to compensate, but that's it. Even the ATSC digital standard (which current HDTV's utilize) are 100% backwards compatible with all analog standards (NTSC, PAL & SECAM).


    Hope this helps!
