Agreed. Based on a reveal trailer alone, it looks more interesting than any game in the series (2D or 3D) since Galaxy 2. It looks like exactly what Mario's HD debut should have been. Better late than never, I suppose!
You know, you seem a lot warmer to Nintendo and the Switch at present, despite not liking the price. I take it Mario and Nintendo releasing Zelda on Wii U simultaneously with Switch helped with that? :P
Yeah, not gonna lie, Zelda still coming to Wii U has a lot do with it. :P
In general though, I actually like a LOT they're doing atm; Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild look like a return to the more ambitious Nintendo I've missed, Splatoon 2 in the Switch's first year and Zelda at launch is exactly what I said they should do, the Switch's controller setup with a pointer, motion control, two independent halves making it basically a wireless Wiimote + Nunchuk looks like it could be basically my ideal controller...
Honestly if it wasn't for the price tag and paid online, I'd have almost nothing but praise for the Switch.
