Nintendo surprises Switch Online subscribers with stealth release of a “souped-up” The Legend of Zelda

Wesley Yin-Poole Deputy Editor @wyp100 Nintendo has stealth released a special version of The Legend of Zelda to Switch Online subscribers. Today, as announced, Solomon’s Key, NES Open Tournament Golf and Super Dodge Ball were added to the Switch Online NES catalogue of games.

Eurogamer has something MUCH more light-hearted as Nintendo released the classic The Legend of Zelda game for Online Subscribers of the Twitch system, and did so unannounced. Nintendo released the game to the Switch Online network along with announced classic games Solomon’s Key, NES Open Tournament Golf and Super Dodge Ball, but as a surprised they released an “enhanced” version of the classic game called “The Legend of Zelda – Living the life of luxury!” that gives you a lot more to start with hearts, rupees, and a lot of weapons. Brings me back to the days of the original Game Genie.

A dog bit a man in the genitals in a flat in Haddington High Street, East Lothian Victim was rushed to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary after the incident on Sunday He was induced into a coma and police are inquiring into ‘the full circumstances’ A man is in a coma after a bulldog bit off his genitals.

The Daily Mail in England has a REALLY strange on as they report that a 22-year-old Scottish man was put into a medically induced coma after his “bits” were BITTEN OFF by an English Bulldog.

Tokyo braces for potential rat infestation as Tsukiji fish market closes

Moving day has come and gone for the people and fish, so next it’s the landmark’s rat population that’ll be looking for a new home. Last Saturday, the wholesale section of Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market shut down for good, bringing an end to a 83-year seafood legacy at the site that’s earned worldwide fame.

SoraNews 24 has two stories following up on the move of the Famed Tsukiji Fish Market 2 miles down the road and becoming the Toyosu Fish Market. The first story is about what is still living at the old site, RATS. It is feared that with the old site being demolished, the little critters will move and find new homes as well.

Another story they have is a relocation of one of the world’s oldest Beef bowl restaurants that has been in operation since 1926. That predates the old market by 12 years and this place relocated the Tsukiji when it was first built in 1938. They are set up in the new market now and already offering up good food in Toyosu.


And all that food has to go somewhere.
