    This is why I hate data mining. There is no Easter eggs, no surprise present, no hidden cheat code anymore, just a bunch of data sitting on a screen tell you "that is it". What worse is that everyone don't even thing it is a spoiler and put it on every goddam first page like it something everyone must know asap.

    I pay respect for Nintendo crew for paying tribute to Iwata. Maybe they too want to surprise us and make us remember about him on that day, not today, and definitely not by a leak like this.

    God, I don't know why but "gbadrama" made me laugh so hard :D

    But yeah, it was really not super nice, with a lot of people calling him a liar or insulting him.

    The saddest part about this all is that before 7/11/18 this tribute Easter egg will probably have something Homebrew enable it or some savvy devs will figure out a way to get an NES emulator running and the Easter egg will be redundant.

    Im on 2.3, fresh out of the box, never set up an internet connection. Cant get it to work. Saw on reddit it requires 1.0.0, any truth to this? Instructions on joycon movement are also kinda unclear. Moving them from pointing forward to a vertical position doesnt match the nintendo direct gesture. Anyone have a video of the gesture with actual joycons?

    Still stuck in 2009...
    Aw, I was kinda having fun messing around with settings and swinging my arms around trying to get it to work...


    For once, out of all the times nintendo has tried to get me to exercise, this time, they actually did it...


    Those tricky tricksters.

    If it was exposed to WiFi it has network time stamped, it will not work. 2.3 means you have used it and thus it probably saw a public network at some point and probed it for time. It does work on 3.0 confirmed by the homebrew devs themselves by modifying the date with hacks.

    Ohhh this is cool. I kinda wish I didn't know though, because now I'll be anticipating playing this next summer. Ah well, I think Golf Story comes out on the eShop soon, that looks really neat.

    Maybe, however he did not start it on the 11th, and he did not say he was on 1.0 :)

    So how?
