    The real question now is, what happens to the 3DS?

    They won't admit anything yet, the N3DS hasn't been out very long, games are still releasing stateside for it over the next year.

    I imagine they'll wait till the switch launches and see how sales measure up before anything happens.



  • @Art
    I think it might depend on if this has any kind of backwards compatibility. I know it wont be able to play Wii U disc, but the cartridge looked just a little bigger then a 3DS cart

    Red Dead Redemption 2 screenshot.



  • So no straight up backwards compatibility is a bummer, but it seems pretty cool to me, the fact that they showed a few Wii U games, makes me hopeful that they'll be porting a lot of the Wii U game

    Could be the case, or maybe it's a digital purchase carry-over thing.



  • @bard91
    Well again we dont know anything. For all we know all WiiU games bought thru the eShop will be compatible on Switch

    CD's are last gen



  • They are not ports,you can see in the video 2 player in one kart ala double dash. It's a new Mario Kart game. Splatoon is also apparently Splatoon 2. Obviously Mario is new.



  • Zelda appears to be buckling hard in mobile mode. Looks like it's running at 10-20 FPS.

    Youtube Video – [00:40..]

    @Syran The human eye can't see past 15 fps anyway. Movie makers in the 1920s' knew this.

    Anything beyond that is extravagance.



  • I'm happy to take a graphics and stability hit when playing on the go providing it isn't too detrimental to the gameplay.

    Any word on if the screen is a touchscreen? Would be weird if it wasn't.



  • @thenerdtheword I'm pretty sure i saw that it was, but I think it was on The Verge or something, so may not be official.



  • It's everything I wanted! The name is stupid, but it wouldn't be a real Nintendo console without a stupid name! We back!



  • While I like NX (I prefer the codename) as a gimmick and its design, I have no reason to get it. I have no nostalgia for Mario and I'll play Skyrim on PC where I can have all mods possible. Only Zelda intrigues me, but I won't spend 300$ (presumably) for it. I'm happy with the expanded 3rd party support and I like how it looks, but (so far) it has done nothing to bring me in, as a new customer. If anything I'll probably get Wii u on the cheap, and have that as a Zelda machine. But I would really like to see the final launch lineup.



  • None of the situations in the video are realistic. I'm going to get it simply because of how much I'm into games, but if they honestly think your average person is going to take this around with them, especially when so many are already carrying a tablet, I don't see this doing well at all, regardless of how good the system is.

    You mean you don't play basketball with your friends on your Switch after playing a game of basketball in real life with your friends?



  • So it's not NX but NS... NS... cough, dunno about other countries but here in germany NS is used as short for national socialism, OH SHIT THE NINTENDO NS!!!

    Well... I dunno, the handheld part is absolutely arbitrary to me, the only reason I play on Vita and 3DS are games I can't play on consoles. The D-Pad on the NS pad looks horrible, but at least the Pro Controller is now a complete 360 rip off, that is a positive thing as I still think that the 360 pad design is the best, the Wii U's Pro Pad kinda sucked imo, I realyl don't like using it, I even prefer to play Bayo 2 with the Wii U Pad.

    I really hope the Mario game is more like Mario 64 and not like Super Mario Sunshine, well I see no FLUDD on his back so this might be good.

    I see Platinum on the support list so I have some hope for a Bayo 3 or TW102.

    The trailer itself was fantasy world, all the cool things you can do but in reality barely anyone will.

    I really wonder how long the batteries last, thinking about the Wii U Pad and 3DS, they need big improvements on this part.

    You realize that 3DS game devs will more than likely drop that handheld and immediately jump on this, right?

    This kills the DS.



  • @Art That only goes for future projects though, the games I already have and are still coming to 3DS exclusively won't disappear.
    Something dawned on me though, the next main Pokemon games after Sun and Moon could be for NS, which means finally a main Pokemon on the big screen again (again because playing GBA games on the GC's Game Boy Player). That would be pretty cool actually.

    Also just looked at the support list again and realized Marvelous is on it too, which could mean that there might be a NS exclusive Senran Kagura or something else from Righteous Boobage Producer Takaki, then I'm 100% sold :3
