Nintendo will now fix your drifting Joy Cons for free, no muss, no fuss. They will even give you a refund if you've paid for it in the past! Nintendo is also upping the number of levels you can upload for Mario Maker 2 from 32 to 64. Sea of Thieves is adding pets to the game "soon" and also adding microtransactions so you can buy pets (and emotes and ship cosmetics). Overwatch is making a HUGE change to the way their matchmaking works by introducing the "Role Queue" system where you will pick a role before you enter a queue. Finally, we got confirmation that we will see some changes to the mainline Switch, in the form of better battery life.
