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.


Yeah, I'm not buying this for a second. I'm willing to bet lots of this so-called support is simply going to be ports of existing games (e.g. Lego Dimensions from Traveller's Tales). >.>

I'm a bit busy to look right now,but apparently it's on the splatoon dev team's social media. I can only find them announcing the console, not the game, so dunno.

But hey, it'd have to be a pretty big port to add hair and pants.

Also, King Boo seems to just be a random Boo model with a crown. Where's the purple eyes and copious amounts of guyliner?

King Boo is like that a long time ago, I guess.

[Unrelated]

But yeah, I'm still pretty bothered that it will not run Wii U games. I can't blame Nintendo, tough. Guess I'll need to be outdated again if I want to play the games I want.

That's his Luigi's Mansion design. In every Mario spin off he's appeared in (Double Dash, MK Wii, Paper Jam, Mario Party 8, Olympic Games, etc.) he's a Big Boo with a gold crown. >.>

Aww, I didn't know that since I'm most familiar with Luigi's Mansion :c

Well, I guess it's expected that it can't run WiiU games because of cartridges, at least it seems to be region free. Hopefully they'll do better this time with the new equivalent of Virtual Console, if it has any.

Very mixed about this reveal.

The concept itself is cool. The idea of having a hybrid console is pretty intriguing. I also like the design of the whole console itself. The controllers and the tablet look really nice. Skyrim on a Nintendo console is really cool to see, and that tease for a new Mario game was cool.

My problem is pretty much everything else. This is only a 3-minute commercial and I really think Nintendo should've spent a whole direct unveiling this thing. There's still a hell of a lot about the console we don't know yet, and it comes out in 5 months. And this is stuff that has to be known now or never, such as:

-Is the third party support here to stay?
-Is Nintendo going to make a better online system?
-Is Nintendo going to incorporate other traditional things consoles have today, such as an achievement system or cloud based storage?
-Is this console on par with the other consoles when it comes to specs and technology, or is it behind the other consoles again like the Wii U was?
-Can this be a traditional home console along with being a gimmicky system, or is it just going to be another gimmick console like the Wii U was?
-Are they actually going to market it, let alone market it well, unlike the Wii U?

I'm staying reserved on this one until I know more about it. Until Nintendo answers questions and starts detailing the Switch I'm not even going to consider getting it.

I'm betting there will be a Nintendo direct down the line to talk about it more and maybe show off a few games.

Speaking of which, when's supposedly the anniversary for those Directs?

There's no way that it'll be on par with the PS4 or Xbox One, especially with the Pro and Scorpio on the horizon. lol
Plus, we've pretty much known that it wouldn't be for a while, considering it's technically a handheld.

Hands down, just that alone is a console I'll get, last one I got anyways was the wii in 2008, and I saw plenty of others games that I'll get as well. I'm sure that they will port some Wii U titles, but if not, whatevs.

Either way, never rule out a tech demo, it's early enough that it might just be experiments that they happened to like enough to use on footage.

If that is just a tech demo, that is a darn fine tech demo, pretty extensive too, but, judging by Nintendo's determination of polish and high quality gameplay, I could see what you mean. But that seems way to much hard work, for me at least, I wouldn't go all out on my game for it to go to waste

It won't be on par meaning it will be less powerful? Or more?

If you honestly think that the Switch is as powerful as either the PS4 or Xbox One, then you're completely delusional. No offense, of course, but it simply cannot be.

Really the best thing I can say for the Switch is that it most definitely, certainly bills itself as a different gaming experience compared to a PC.

The biggest problems I have with Xbone and PS4 is that Microsoft and Sony are clearly trying to emulate the experience of PC gaming with equipment that cannot out-perform a decent PC. The reason I use my 3DS so much more is because the stuff it offers is different. I can't just go on my computer and play a 3DS game (well, there are some emulators out there, but they suck). And in the Switch's case, it certainly seems to look like a very unique experience.

But I want to see the games first.

I'm guessing the game boxes will probably be the size of 3DS boxes. Sounds fun.

I'm excited, not gonna lie, but March is still rather far for me, so I'm trying not to get too excited. That port/possible sequel of Splatoon though, is literally beautiful. I definitely can't wait for that.

Do we have a price point yet? I'm guessing no, but it'd be nice. I wanna learn what the launch titles are too...

EDIT: Welp, nevermind my question. Looks like we're not getting any info on the Switch until next year. That means we'll be getting a lot at a time though. Which is sort of ok? It's 3 months to announce release, price, launch titles, and other important information so it'd all have to be announced then.

All we know is that there is a Pokémon game coming to the Switch soon, we do not know for a fact if it is a main series game or not.
(It's more likely a port of Pokkén, in all honesty)

This is the best I could find. Which this doesn't seem to inherently say anything about it not being a side game.

I think Windumup is just assuming based on the fact that this will probably come to replace both the WiiU & 3DS. Unless they choose to keep the 3DS around so younger kids have a simpler, purely portable option that doesn't run the risk of losing the controllers.

It looks promising but since I am getting a PS4 Pro, I will need some more convincing if I am to make the Switch on day one.

The new 3D Mario looks amazing though. It looks like a hybrid of 64 and 3D World, which is exactly what I wanted from the next game. You can even see a floating heart in one of the shots, just like the ones from 64. So they might be using the HP system again.

I feel like they're going to keep around some iteration of the 3ds. After all, the Switch doesn't have the dual-screens.

It's not a confirmation, but in the statement the president of The Pokémon Company made, he explicitly named GameFreak as the development studio working on something.

Of course, that proves nothing. And it's worth noting that their development experience on consoles as opposed to handhelds is... well... rather limited.

Possibly the screen itself, but that would mean they're as meh to use as they are on the WiiU. Here's hoping it's on the station or something.
