Back in action with site updates coming this month. Meet Sirfetch’d, only in Pokémon Sword.


Hi there and welcome to my site! 🙂

My name is Luther, founder of NintendObserver. I also go by DePapier or Luther DePapier across the Internet. (And accessorily as Marina’s official* boyfriend on Twitter.)




Why NintendObserver?

I’ve been a gaming enthusiast on the web for quite some time now and through my experience, something has been baffling me about the perception of Nintendo in the gaming community: more than the orchestrated misinformation, it’s the sheer ignorance.

Ignorance of what Nintendo is. Ignorance of what Nintendo has done. But mostly, a sincere lack of research on what Nintendo is doing, what this objectively means for the business of the company, and by extension what this means for the future of videogames.


At NintendObserver, I strive to learn and to understand what makes Nintendo. I strive to comprehend the business of Nintendo as well as the rationale behind their decisions in order to envision accurate expectations of what the company might be cooking for its fans. I strive to provide content that is related to what Nintendo announces themselves such as through Nintendo Directs and corporate management briefings, straight from the mouths of late Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata and his Koopalings. (Notice I wrote that before Doug Bowser took over Nintendo of America.) 😉


And ultimately, I aim for NintendObserver to be the #1 source on the Internet for all things concrete with regards to the world of Nintendo.


Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
