Haha, two Nintendo-themed calculator reviews in one day! We are truly blessed.

I did it just for you, Jerec. I know how you love your calculator reviews. I saw you pining for one on Twitter the other day, so I thought I would send your way an embarrassment of riches.

I did a brief search, and it looks like these are first party titles (from Nintendo Software Technology in Redmond). Only speculation, but I think Nintendo saw what the App Store was doing for iPhone, with all the toy app nonsense it had, and trying to position the DSi similarity.

Haha, I bet you're already hard at work playing and reviewing the Nintendo Switch calculator... which can't even be justified based the time it was released.

I think I'll pass on that one for now, and possibly for all time. The Switch library has literally thousands of games I'd rather buy ahead of it, once I have spending money again. While the DS calculator apps might not seem like obvious review fodder, I feel they do have some value as a curiosity (plus I already owned them a few years ago now). There's a chance people will look them up, years from now, out of boredom. I don't think anyone was sincerely interested in the calculator app for Switch even a day after its release. I know I wasn't!

Two calculator reviews? I'm offering praise to every deity I can think of that this didn't happen during one of my RotW weeks!
