Whilst it may not have been an especially explosive week for Nintendo news directly from Nintendo, special sources have been firing ten to the dozen this week bringing forth a wealth of new rumours with surprising validity. If you've been too busy doing other things that someone in your life claims are more important than video games then don't worry. Thanks to Nintendo Life Weekly you can get yourself back up to speed in next to no time at all.

This week we explore the substantial if unconfirmed claims that Mother 3 is being localised at Nintendo of Europe, further word that the Nx will drop this year, speculation about currently unreleased Splatoon content, and the usual medley of releases and reviews.
