Hopefully there will be more characters, such as Diddy Kong. Also mean a high chance of a Smash bros port with added content, hopefully water down all the sh*tty Fireemblem and bayonetta characters.

Easily lost parts: The console

But with that aside, it looks pretty cool. Probably more of a polished WiiU that can play DS games, but I might use it. If I could invest in it and had the time.

everyone online is hyped for the games they had running which are most likely just tech demos...

anyway I'm worried about this one... the detachable controllers look less comfortable than a wiimote...

it's gonna be tough for people to support this console once the initial hype wears off... (besides nintendo fans)

the call of duty and grand theft auto era is to strong...

With all those moving parts, the level of inherent wear and tear might be kind of high. I can imagine kids breaking these quite easily.

I hope the price is more competitive than that of the first model of the 3DS.

I don't know if everyone saw, but it looked like they also had traditional controllers they could use so I imagine it is 4 player capable and I think it will reduce wear and tear on the detachable parts.

Looks like its going to have a lot of Wii-U ports.

Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon were shown and they don't look like sequels to me, they'll probably be the Wii-U games. Zelda is also technically a port and they'll likely re-release Mario Maker and Smash U too.

Mario was the only new title shown.

I've been thinking I'd get it for the Switch, since it's portable. I'm kind of concerned about battery life though, as well as the detachable controllers since they do look rather small. They make me think of playing games on a Game Boy Micro.

It does. 3DS game development is coming to an end. You can tell Nintendo wants to merge their handheld and console lines together so all their development is on one console now.

Yeah looks to be heading that direction. But on second thought I think eliminating the hand held only branch would cost them money.

So I'm wondering how multi-player will work with this. Is it two players only unless others also have the system?

Growing up with the N64 it was so simple. One console, one cart, and four controllers. I'm old. :tconfuse:

Pooping is an adventure all unto itself. From long to short, I have no use to be accomplishing anything else whilst pooping.

What the Switch means for me, though, is a money saver. No more separate console purchases for home and on the go for Nintendo, no needing to keep up separate libraries, and I certainly hope that with the Nintendo Account system, I won't have to buy some of these Virtual Console games a fourth time.

Yeah, this is one of the many internet jokes I don't get. What the hell do people be doing that they so desperately need something to occupy themselves in there? I dump ass, I wipe, I'm out. I don't have time for extracurriculars in there. If anything, wiping is the longest part and that takes up a whole hand.

Yeah, originally it made sense for Nintendo to have both consoles and handhelds, simply because the handhelds were so far behind in power.

The Gameboy/Color was essentially a portable NES. Then the GBA came out in 2001 and breathe new life to 2D games, it was basically a sequel to the SNES while the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox era was going so it was great. The DS was also a success because it had many unique and interesting portable games.

The 3DS on the other hand while it has a great lineup, made it obvious that the handheld games were too similar especially from Nintendo on 3DS and Wii U:

Mario 3D Land AND 3D World
Mario Kart 7 and 8
New Super Mario Bros 2 and U
Smash 3DS AND Smash U
Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends
Donkey Kong Country Returns was ported to 3DS
Xenoblade was ported to 3DS
Yoshi's Wooly world is now being ported to 3DS
Mario Maker is being ported to 3DS

Also some other games like Luigi's Mansion 2 and Kid Icarus would have been better suited as Wii-U games than on handhelds.

It's pretty cool. I personally don't care much to play things on the go but it works anywhere. As long as the games are good that's all that matters to me.

Battery life is a good question. My iPad gets like 4-5 hours fully charged, basic browsing, light game usage. So this would have to go at least 10 hours on full charge imo but for heavy portable use maybe 12.

It's taken a decade, but I'm happy to see Nintendo "Switch" back to regular controls, no motion or touch screen controls in sight. Although nothing has officially been announced yet, it looks like it might not be backwards compatible with the Wii U. But I'm ok with that, just gives people a reason to keep their Wii U and I'll gladly sacrifice backwards compatibility for normal controls. I'm not crazy about how small the Joy-Con controllers are, but that's ok because I don't have to use them because a more traditional controller can be used instead.

It also makes power outages ruining your game progress a thing of the past due to it having it's own battery. Really looking forward to seeing more of that 3D Mario game. I really hope they go back to the Super Mario 64/Sunshine/Galaxy route with this one. The camera position gives it the old 3D Mario feel, but the levels look very linear...almost like a Crash Bandicoot level.

This system has no backwards compatibility with the Wii U and will not play 3DS games. I'm not complaining about the 3DS, but remember when I put up a thread asking if I should or should not get a Wii U? My main concern was if the new system had backwards compatibility. Thank goodness I got a Wii-U, because I would have ended up screwing myself over and not have been able to play those Wii-U titles I wanted.

Well, that is disappointing about no backwards compatibility. Hopefully since wii-u sales were lacking, I hope for that rumored "Smash" port coming out, as well as they do something for the two Bayonetta games. BECAUSE I don't want to spend money on a new system for 3 games

Most likely the virtual console will continue on it for all old games. Although I wonder how they'll handle the second screen for DS and 3DS games.

3DS will be kept awhile for the next 2 years or so to make sure that if the Switch fails like the Wii U they can counter-act with a new portable and if it's a success do away with the portables, similar to how the GBA was kept a live until the DS proved to be a successor, if it hadn't then there wouldn't been a new Game Boy to replace the failed DS "third pillar" approach.

Most likely the virtual console will continue on it for all old games. Although I wonder how they'll handle the second screen for DS and 3DS games.
Like the Wii U Does giving you different options and with the tablet controller it's easier than ever if you wnat to play it there since all you have to do is rotate the screen.

I'm guessing Smash won't get a port, it's Nintendo's biggest game and they'll want to hype a new one instead of re-releasing a 2+ year old game. The other's might get a very similar version that is different enough to be called a new game.

Its already more or less rumored/confirmed Smash is getting a port by the same people who said Mario Kart 8, Splatoon and Mario Maker were being ported.

It'll likely just be Smash U with all the DLC characters. However if we're really lucky we might get stuff like the Ice Climbers, maybe 2-3 new characters (still surprised the Inklings from Splatoon were not DLC), and maybe the levels from the 3DS version included.

Well no backwards compatibility is somewhat disappointing. I mean I guess it doesn't support discs so I understand no wii-u but it could definitely play 3DS.

It could just flip up horizontal with a split in the middle. It wouldn't be 3D (unless the screen is 3D) but I'm sure all DS games could run on it. Assuming the Carts/Cards are the same size and shape.

They could have made it BC if they really wanted too.

As with most new systems that have no backwards compatibility I'm sure the urge is to get you to re-buy old games digitally on it.

I dunno if I trust Nintendo anymore. 1 new Mario game, 1 new Smash Bros game, and 1.5 new Zelda games per the life of a system, the last two systems, isn't quite enough to intrigue me. I don't care if I can bring the console into my car and get into an accident dinking around.

CyberCubed
10-21-2016, 11:47 PM
Makes you wonder what Nintendo will do if the Switch doesn't sell well.

The Wii-U only sold 13 million consoles to date after 4 years. For reference the Gamecube sold around 21 million consoles and Nintendo viewed that as a failure. The N64 topped out at 32 million consoles.

Investors already warned Nintendo they don't want another flop, and if the Switch doesn't sell any better than the Wii-U I have no idea what they're going to do. They're not going to keep releasing new console after console. They may just go all streaming or finally make games available on non-Nintendo consoles.

Its in the same manner Nintendo said for a decade they would never put their games on mobile phones...and now they changed their mind.

Andrew NDB
10-21-2016, 11:55 PM
It's a matter of ideology. Nintendo still looks at their systems and games as "toys," essentially, when video game platforms transcended that eons ago. The only thing that saved Nintendo when Sega went down in flames is that, of their core lineups, people care a lot more about Mario, Zelda, and Metroid than just Sonic the ****ing Hedgehog. They can always release a new Mario, Zelda, or Metroid game and people will buy it, pretty much without fail... Sega can release a new Sonic game and maybe some people will buy it, if it's awesome. But they didn't even bother making good Sonic games by the end.

If Nintendo had placated companies like Square-Enix, Konami, and Capcom and kept them in their corner they'd be in way, way better straits. They probably would have even fended off the rise of Playstation.

@spd, Cure...I obviously don't know how to build a console but come on you're telling me this machine could not run DS games?

I don't think it's a major issue , I still want one, it's just kinda disappointing when it's obviously capable. They just didn't or won't build it to do so.

The DS came out in 2004 and the GBA still had new games released through 2006. The 3DS came out in 2011 and the DS game lineup continued to about 2012.

There always still games coming out on old systems even when new ones come out. The install base is at its highest at the end of a cycle so they try to squeeze out some last sales before they start all over again with the next one.

Nintendo tends to drop its consoles like a hot potato though. The N64, Gamecube, Wii and now Wii-U were all pretty much barren wastelands in their last years besides maybe one or two last games.
