New Site Feature: Sidebar game info/game specific music

I’ve made some additions to the site today that I think adds a little something special to Nintendo Nation. When you check out our posts related to a game, you will now see in the sidebar on PC and tablet, and in the footer on mobile devices, some information about the game in which the post is related. You’ll also see a track bar on a lot of the pages. This is a music track either from the specific game or the specific series. There’s something kind of fun about listening to Yoshi music while I’m reading Yoshi’s Crafted World news, or Mario Tennis Aces tunes in the background while I catch up on the latest patch notes.

Nintendo Nation new sidebar feature

I will be updating as many of the backposts as I can with this type of content, so if you feel like browsing the site and listening to some game specific music, be sure to check that out. I’ll also be switching up the featured tunes more often, and that will appear only on the homepage from now on. Opening at least 1 additional tab is the best way to utilize this content, as the music does stop as you navigate away from the page. Having multiple tabs open to the site ensures that your song selection will keep playing as you move from page to page. I hope you like this new feature!

Needed: 1 Indie Game Geek

Hi everyone!

The website needs another voice and I am now actively looking for a contributor for a weekly or bi-weekly written article, with a focus on indie games. This will not be a paid position at the moment, sorry! But, that could change in the future.

Whoever is chosen will have input into the nature of their content, and can expect a friendly work environment with open dialogue. A love for indies and extensive knowledge of current and past releases on Nintendo platforms is a must. If you are looking for a space to practice your writing and be published online to a growing audience, please use the contact form that can be found in the menu or, click here, and send us a message that says “Nintendo Nation Jobs.” I will contact you with more details after this initial step is taken.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Welcome to Nintendo Nation!!

Hi! If you have somehow stumbled to our humble little website, know that it means a lot to me. My name is Jon, and I am currently the sole owner/operator of and Nintendo Nation on YouTube. I understand how many sources of Nintendo content there are out there, and I am striving to make headway into that very competitive world. Your support is important to me, so thank you.

Going forward, Nintendo Nation hopes to become a trusted source for you, the reader and viewer. Whether it be the YouTube channel, written reviews, or daily news updates, I promise to bring family friendly Nintendo content. Even when I review mature titles, I will do my very best to make sure it is appropriate for all ages and safe viewing for kids.

Video games can be a big source of anger, hate, and general obnoxious behavior. Instead of feeding into that behavior, Nintendo Nation will strive to do the exact opposite.

We all have opinions, and each one is unique and valued. I may not like every game I review, but to find some good in a game can help developers who have given everything they have to that game. That’s why, when you read or watch one of our reviews, I will never rip a game apart, no matter how bad it might be.

I have a little foot in the door on social media, and I would sincerely love it if you followed our journey, like the posts, if you like them, and hey, just interact with me. I love talking video games, so if you have questions or comments about games, or just want to say hi, I am always open for that type of interaction.

There is one other full time member of my team. His name is Brick, and he runs our Instagram account. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you really should. It is a never ending interconnected scroll of wacky Nintendo related art. You’ll also find little nods to our game review history, a visual time line of the progress we’ve made with the website. It’s very cool!

Thank you for checking out Nintendo Nation, and I hope to continue growing and learning new, fun, and exciting ways to bring you content for months and years to come.
