Remember the secret game of NES Golf hidden inside each and every Switch console? It would seem Nintendo is prepared to officially acknowledge the existence of this hidden gem - taken by many to be a tribute to the late Satoru Iwata - but that's about it.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, when asked by Kotaku about the tribute, said:

So, two comments on this. It was identified by folks playing around in the firmware. We’ve got nothing officially to announce for that content or what the plans are for that content. So that’s that. Certainly anything that pays respect to my friend Mr. Iwata is something that is near and dear to me personally, but in terms of that execution and what it was meant to do or what the plans are, we’ve got nothing to announce.

"Nothing to announce" could be taken to mean "we have plans but we're not saying what they are yet". Or, perhaps, Nintendo won't announce anything, and the secret tribute was meant to be just that: a secret.
