Well that was sudden.

No formal, big announcement or anything? Just a sudden tweet saying it's going to be shown off in a trailer the next morning? Why would they decide to make a 3-minute video showing the console instead of actually detailing it, ESPECIALLY considering this thing is supposed to come out in 5 months?

My guess is that we'll get a brief overview of the system and name tomorrow, and more info/official reveal/press events next week.

I can't wait for GameFAQs' reaction.
Even if it's just panoramic shots of the console, they'll probably complain about how it looks, or get into arguments about the fact it's just panoramic shots when really everyone would agree that sucks.

The console looks pretty dang good and I really like how the pieces just click together, though they didn't show any new games I think? One of those might've been a new Mario game since I didn't recognise the levels from 3DW, but my memory of that game is really rusty (Galaxies are stil da bes).

Anyways, I'll keep an eye on it but there doesn't seem to be anything that's must-have for me at launch, so I'm not getting it for a while. Unless the next Skylanders is on it, and that's still a big maybe, cuz I want a PS4. Portable MK8 is something I'll definitely get after I get this console though.

Any other ports of Nintendo games I'd get... Um, probably just Xenoblade and maybe Smash (but I prefer the 3DS version anyway, so it'd have to have some kind of extra content for me to bite). I'm not interested in portable Splatoon. I mean I would buy a Bayo1/2 port or TW101 port as well and hell yeah I'd buy older Skylanders ports unlesstheywereSuperchargers but hell would freeze over before those happened lol.

Now I just need to mull over wether to get Zelda for the U or wait until I get an NX. I have a ridiculous backlog right now, so probably the latter. I don't wanna buy it twice, I'm a little stingier with money now.

It looks alright I guess.

Honestly the biggest news to me here is Skyrim Remastered and I don't even care about getting that.

Unless they offer this for a really cheap price I'm going to pass. It'll take a lot to convince me to bother anymore.

Looks pretty cool. Screw those controllers, tho! I'm def picking up the normal ones instead
CAV Platinum Sparx Gems: 5821
#27 Posted: 14:11:04 20/10/2016
I imagine those controllers come bundled with the system since the entire point of the console is to take it on the go if you want.
Spyro Fanatic Hunter Gems: 9563
#28 Posted: 14:18:13 20/10/2016
The trailer reeks of Bethesda.

Never thought I'd say that on an Nintendo topic...

Apart from that, I'm skeptical about its battery life.

#30 Posted: 14:20:12 20/10/2016
I LOVE THIS.


also I'm pretty sure those are Splatoon/MK sequels (or remastered), not ports, because of the new MK characters and new Splatoon hair styles.

^ Splatoon and MK are porting levels from the originals, I doubt there'll be enough new content for me to bite on them, personally.

So, is that Mario game 3DW? Does anyone recognise the level, or is it new?
Looks more open than anything I remember from that game, but like I said my memory of it is so foggy I can't tell.

And overall I'm happy with this. I'm just gonna wait. I don't have enough interest to buy consoles at launch anymore, this gen taught me that's just a bad idea.

Hrrrmmm... this one's going to take time to grow on me. I really wish those hybrid rumors weren't true and this was a proper console. Using both or one half of the tablet as a controller looks even more awkward than the Wiimote/Nunchuck... which means I'll likely ignore the so-called portable aspect of the console in order to use a proper controller. Or, at the very least, I'll never use it in portable mode for multiplayer... since that seems to force people into using the little half-stick.

And the cartridges are tiny... which concerns me... because I'm worried I'll misplace one. What was so wrong with discs again? Oh right, Nintendo's always been consistently behind on disc-based technology and probably refused to fork over royalties to Sony for Blu-ray tech.

And it looks like, unless this was stock footage, Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon are getting updated re-releases of some sort? There was also 3D Mario... and unfortunately it looks to be Mario 3D World 2, which is very disappointing for me as I think that, outside of including Yoshi, the "3D Mario with a 2D Mario game structure," formula has run its course. Moreover, the big draw of 3D World (multiplayer) wouldn't work for me since I don't have friends who want to play multiplayer 3D Mario.

So just based on the initial footage, it'll be The Pokémon Company that ultimately decides if I'm buying the Switch or avoiding it. <.<

Impressive list especially with From Software and Bethesda on there, but how many of them are still going to be here after a year? That's the big question that stops me from buying into the hype.

Remember that we were promised the Wii U would have long third party support as well.

Vita cartridges are ridiculously small and unless you're flipping them like coins you shouldn't be losing them.

#35 Posted: 14:26:02 20/10/2016
i honestly think it looks horrible
imo it's nothing more than a glorified gaming tablet that can plug into your tv
controllers suck, gimmick sucks because it feels like now theyre phasing out not only the wii u but the 3DS as well
seeing skyrim and a splatoon remaster or splatoon 2 run on it is intriguing, but not enough for me to consider buying it for any more than 200

so yeah, i think ill be passing until they completely phase out the 3DS >.>;
TheToyNerd Gold Sparx Gems: 2137
#36 Posted: 14:26:34 20/10/2016
The trailer clearly shows that you don't need to use the sticks in order to play the game portably. Again there were normal controllers being used, so I feel like all complaints about that part of it are moot.

Waitwaitwait THQNordic? Holy **** I thought THQ bit the dust completely.
Well, it's good Platinum is making something on it (could be a port of one of their lesser games, but here's hoping for something great).

The Wii U's loss of support stung, especially Rayman Legends getting delayed, personally (I remember the devs themselves complaining about that and it made me tear up).

It's still Nordic Games with THQ's IPs, they just changed names.

Well, I'm meh, honestly. The trailer really didn't hit it despite the 2 year wait, and though the console itself is alright, until we get to know more about its power I'm wary of cartridges and just overall being so small.

So I heard this thing is region free? I have no idea how true those rumors listed are, but I heard there were some rumors that were true (and also mentioned no BC), so that's be great. (Although 32gb internal storage would blow)

Honestly I got more of a 64/Galaxy vibe from that Mario game. Looking at the footage, it doesn't look like another 3D World game to me, and it even looks like there's an NPC to interact with (There's a little cactus sombrero dude dancing in the corner... But that could be an enemy, I dunno).

But anyway here are my thoughts if anyone cares.

^ I heard carts can hold a lot more data than consoles, but I assume that previous handhelds didn't utilise it because they didn't have the power to make use of all that space? But I don't think that's something to worry about. And jeez I'm gonna be saying "I heard" a lot.

Honestly I think it looks pretty cool. I actually kinda like the design and the whole portable console thing. Still, I probably won't get it unless the main series Pokemon games move over to it which considering Gen 7 is already starting on the 3DS probably won't be for at least a couple more years if it does happen.

It could get ports, if MK8 is(unless those are just very copy and paste sequels).

And well, region free means importing is a possibility for me. Just give me pokémon and I just might be in(if I ever make enough money to get a console in its prime days that is).

edit: Splatoon 2 confirmed, not a port.

I think Sun and Moon would be harder to port than Mario Kart 8 or Splatoon would, since the 3DS Pokemon games aren't exactly HD. They'd probably have to make up new models and maps for everything... But then again Game Freak confirmed they were working on something for this console, didn't they?
