Nebbles

I'm holding my actual thoughts until I see a roster, honestly. If it's just Awakening and Fates aka weeb emblem I won't be very happy.

^because the dynasty warriors games fukin suck.

Yeah noc, basically what nebbles said with the addition of a March third launch with Zelda, splatoon 2 this summer, mariokart 8 deluxe 4/28 and supposedly a lot more third party support. Also battery life is hella weak.

Edit: and no more region locking

So Mario Odyssey looks great and everything, but it just occurred to me that I might be mildly disappointed if the Wario brothers don't show up in it. Dunno why I'm thinking about that, but there you go.

Well, then not appearing is a huge possibility since they hardly ever appear in non-spin-off titles. But it's not like that has hindered other games' success.

Yeah, I know that and the game won't be any lesser because of it. But in a game this big, a man can dream.

Also there's Puyo Puoy Tetris and a new 2D sonic game that both look pretty decent.

MMMMMMMMMMMMM
SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY LOOKS AMAZING!!!! Also, Bowser looks good in a suit! Now, I'm curious to see how the cap mechanic ties into everything.

I would say I was disappointed, but honestly it's exactly what I expected.   Nintendo is just hilariously out of touch with the market.

I'll probably just get the Zelda Master Edition and put it in a closet until the switch is in a bargain bin (or Nintendo fires and rehires everyone).

I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

You two are joking, right? Where to begin... There's a hilarious lack of software, especially at launch (minus Zelda, ofc) with basically them just showing off their "see look third parties are on board" rather than actual games, the battery life is too ridiculously limited to be useful, accessories continue to grow in price (but that isn't really exclusive to Nintendo), they obviously focused on the mundane features (HD Rumble?) rather than their lack in power when compared to consoles that are already on the market, and more. The only thing that was real news was that it won't be region locked, but most everything else was p. predictable.

I believe the only real issue with the Switch is the pricing. The joy cons are $50 each and the pro controller is $70. That's outrageous. The Switch itself is expensive software and won't be able to match the Xbox One and PS4, especially when it comes to pricing.

As for the launch titles, they're a little thin...which isn't very surprising. They could've used another big title (like Zelda BotW), or at least had Super Mario Odyssey ready in time. The holiday is way too far off to be releasing gameconsole-selling games in my opinion.
I think it's great that they are bringing games from other consoles (for example Skyrim), but games like that won't sell the console when you can buy a different console that is cheaper with the same game. They need more good exclusive games that will sell the console (like Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey). Those are my two big concerns: expenses and lack of games at launch.

1 2 switch isn't Wii Sports. I know a lot of people didn't like Wii Sports, but that is the game that first drew me to the Wii back when it was first released. Wii sports sold approximately 82.79 million, which is pretty dang good. The highest-selling Wii U game only sold 8 million (Mario Kart 8 ). Also, Arms? No way.

Now if they only improved the battery life...
