Not enough information.

For example, will this replace the Wii U AND the 3DS? If so, then it needs to sell in the ballpark of home console + handheld console software numbers.

Pokemon and (probably) Monster Hunter will make it sell more than the Wii U, easily. More than the 3DS? I doubt it.

So it is basically an even more confusing device than the Wii U. The only difference is they dumped the Wii name brand so that hopefully parents will pick it up for their kids.

Being that it is mobile they will need to either partner with Apple or Google to get apps on it or kids will not take the time for it.

 

There are still a lot of if's, and the games still are what can make or break it. It is up in the air if they will actually come through with the games though. Even with all the supposed supporters they could end up giving us some crappy ports or just digital editions.

 

I am also surprised that the Switch will have enough power to play games like Breath of the Fire or Wind or whatever the next Zelda game is called.

Lastly is this the end of handhelds for Nintendo or is this what we are stuck with from now on? I would love to still keep them separate, but it seems this is now our handheld. Correct?

Here is the list of Developers.

Yeah ""partners" lol, the same unprecedented partnerships before the wii u got out

Also Take2? They just announced RDR2! Its not coming to the Switch

Dont kid yourselves man.



yeah, also all the negative opinions are common when it comes to Nintendo. If this was unveiled by other company would be the sickest handheld ever.



I hope they succeeded. That's the ultimate mobility in gaming, but I'm not buying the concept. And will not buy the console. After the wiiu and 2 generations of fidelity I'm jumping ship. I guess I'm butt hurt with lack of third part support, sauvage censorship, and lack of smart thinking. They had the chance with the wiimotes to have the best shooters and point n' click on the Galaxy, and they have not exploited that. I guess I'm done, until my kids are at the age of playing games. Good luck, though.

Only counting Japan this console/handheld is already a success.

 

Ohh look the Nintendo bashers are out in full force over all topics I see.

 

Like clockwork... never fail.



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

this tablet need a launch title either Pokemon Switch or a Super Mario Switch to be success...



No.

Not in the way it should anyway, if this is all there is to Nintendo in the next generation. We are already complaining about the 80m the 8th Gen brought Nintendo. This new thing is never going to get that high and we're going to see another regression in Nintendo userbase for sure.

If Sony released this as a Playstation 4 ... uh, you can bet some hell would break loose, lol. 

This is basically Nintendo going portable only with a side option for TV play.

I'm not in any delusion, just saying that this list represents companies that might only release one game on the Switch just to test the waters.

And you need to chill a little.
