I am aware that in the past articles here have not quoted their sources. Sure "Nintendo PR" is a grey area and it seems to be acceptable to just use that as the quoted source. Kind of useless as the readers can't varify the source but at times it's all we have so we accept that.
Personally I trust that when NL use "Nintendo PR" it's legit and not just making stuff up like other websites do.

But then other times we have articles like this
https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2019/08/wayforward_reveals_...
That don't link to the source at all. I did a search and found the source material.
https://wayforward.com/wayforward-reveals-official-title-and-...

Can we start adding the source links to the NL articles please?
If you say someone announced something, link where you found out this information so we readers can verify the information. However if someone told you this information in person, state this too so we know how the information was gathered.

We readers should not have to search up links to information in the article that the NL journalist refused to link somewhere in or at the end of their article.

Good news! Through the science of free will, you no longer have to look up links if you don't want to!

@the8thark I've added the link. Tbh, 99 out of 100 there will be a source link, but obviously got missed on this occasion - the information may well have been sent via email, and we can't add the email as a source

Also, yes you can trust us, we never "make stuff up".

Cheers!

Have you got a source for that?
