The ITSHOW 2020 will be postponed to a later date due to the current Novel Coronavirus situation in Singapore. With the DORSCON level raised to Orange, the Ministry of Health is advising event organisers to cancel or defer non-essential large-scale events.

In conjunction with the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons game on the Switch, Nintendo is launching a limited edition Animal Crossing themed console. And it looks beautiful.

It comes with a pair of cool looking mint green and blue Joy-Cons.

The console’s dock sports a distinct design of Tom Nook on a deserted island accompanied by his nephews, Timmy and Tommy. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first time Nintendo release a dock that is not the traditional black colour.

The Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing: New Horizons Limited Edition console will be available from 13 March 2020. Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be released on 20 March 2020.

Canon, in collaboration with UNIQLO, is launching a limited edition t-shirt under “The Brands – Masterpiece” collection.

The design showcases the EOS R, Canon’s first 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor mirrorless interchangeable-lens digital camera with an electronic viewfinder. This is Canon’s third collaboration with Uniqlo, with the first two in 2010 and 2011, featuring Canon’s EOS system.

Available in black only, the limited-edition T-shirts are now available at $14.90 on UNIQLO.COM and will be available across all UNIQLO stores islandwide from 10 February 2020 onwards.

Samsung is having a Galaxy Unpacked event on 11 February 2020, 11am. (12 Feb, 3am Singapore time)

We’ll find out more about it on 11 Feb.
