Combine the fact that Nintendo have never delivered a true console Pokémon with the interest in the franchise that showed with the Pokémon Go insanity and I believe Pokémon switch will be earthshattering. Think of all the pent up demand for a Pokémon game on a console. With the switch seemingly merging their handheld and console lines we can assume Pokémon switch will be a true Pokémon.
Of course execution will be key. But with the roll Nintendo is on I am not worried much at all about whether or not it will be of the highest quality.
