Nintendo: Fan builds historical Nintendo headquarters

Nintendo: Fan builds historical Nintendo headquarters


Did you know how old Nintendo is already? Nowadays, the Japanese company is of course primarily known for Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Pokémon and Co., and has been for several decades. For example, until recently, Super Mario celebrated its 35th anniversary. But when Nintendo became world famous with video games in the 80s, the company was almost a century old! In September 1889, Fusajiro Yamamauchi founded Nintendo as a company that initially only produced traditional Japanese Hanafuda playing cards.

Historical company headquarters gave way to parking space

Nowadays nothing is left of the old company headquarters, because in 2004 it had to give way to a parking lot. However, there are still pictures of the old office. A passionate Nintendo fan from France named Fabrice Heilig took this as a template to recreate the historic Nintendo company headquarters in his own garden.

More space for the collection

Heilig is not only a big Nintendo fan and collector, he is also very interested in the traditional Hanafuda playing cards from the Japanese company. Over time, his collection became so large that a spatial extension became necessary. At first he wanted to expand the existing house, but instead came up with a much better idea: Why not rebuild the company's old headquarters to match the extensive historical Nintendo collection?

Detailed replica

The project was painstakingly implemented by Heilig, as he describes in detail on his own website. With success: its building resembles Nintendo's historic office in every detail! The interior is different from the Japanese original, but also uses a typical Japanese style. Not only does Heilig's extensive Nintendo collection stand there, the small building also serves as a guest house.

Nintendo Switch Pro discovery mentions 4K and a new dock – and we're excited

Just when we thought the latest Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite firmware update could not reveal any more juicy secrets about the future of the Switch family of consoles, comes another incredible datamined revelation.

And, this time, it's about the next-gen console gamers are desperate for – the Nintendo Switch Pro, which is slated for release later this year.

The information comes courtesy of dataminer OatmealDome, who recently posted his discovery on Twitter. In that post, which can be seen below, OatmealDome states  that in the latest 12.0.0 firmware for the Switch the following setting can be found: 'is_crda_fw_update_supported'.

The dataminer then proceeds to explain that 'CrdA' = Cradle (Dock) for Aula. Aula is the codename for the new model'. This information is explained again by commentator Mike Heskin, who states that ''CrdA means 'Cradle Aula'. It's a new dock for the upcoming 4K model.' Check out the revealing post in full below:

What's even more exciting, though, is that the exact same dataminer has also discovered another line in the latest Switch firmware, which specifically makes reference to 4K. And in the context of 4K being used over a USB 3.0 input, too – which means the new Switch would be docked when displaying at a UHD resolution.

As can be seen in the above tweet, the specific line states '4kdp_preferred_over_usb30', which is inferred to mean that the new Switch will make use of a DisplayPort connection when docked in its new cradle to display at a 4K resolution on the attached TV or monitor.

This news, that there is a new model of Nintendo Switch coming, that it will offer a 4K resolution when docked, and that it will come with a brand new design of dock, is not new, with plenty of recent reports based on leaked information saying as such.

Nevertheless, it is very exciting to see what looks like references to these things in official Nintendo Switch firmware, and especially so considering that we're now roughly only half a year away from the Nintendo Switch Pro release date.

Here at T3 we couldn't be more excited about the Nintendo Switch Pro's launch, so here's hoping we hear more about the next-gen console soon. Nintendo has confirmed it is partaking in this year's virtual E3 games show, so maybe just maybe we'll get a teaser then.
