Whereas yesterday brought with it the story of one person stealing a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, today gives us a story of a wonderful Switch-giving gesture, hopefully restoring balance to the world and certainly restoring our faith in humanity.
Just last week, eight-year-old Arthur Millichamp of Mapperly in Nottingham, UK, was travelling back home in a taxi with his Nintendo Switch. Sadly, five minutes after the journey, he realised that he'd accidentally left his Switch in the back of the car; his mother eventually managed to get in touch with the driver of the taxi the following day, but the console was nowhere to be seen.
Luckily, help was on its way. Tony Stephenson, founder of Nintendo fan-group Nintendo Nottingham (and good friend of Nintendo Life, we might add) saw an article about the story on a local news website. Speaking to Nottinghamshire Live, Tony said, "I saw the article and thought we could try and help in some way. We have a spare Nintendo Switch that isn't being used so some of us had a chat at the group and we decided to give it to Arthur."
The generosity didn't stop there, however, as the group also put in the effort to replace the five games that also went missing with the console including Super Mario Party, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and more. Wonderful stuff.
We do love a good festive, feel-good story every now and then. Nice work, Nintendo Nottingham!
