You need to be a badass first.




It's here! The long awaited, highly anticipated new gaming console from Nintendo: the Nintendo Switch!

This new entertainment device promises to enrich your life by being one of the most versatile game systems on the market! Play it at home, or on the go! There's a method of play for every kind of player!

Three Modes of Play!



In TV Mode, the Switch console rests in the Switch Dock and the game is displayed on the TV.
In Tabletop Mode, The Switch rests on a flat surface with its stand, allowing for more flexible play options.
In Handheld Mode, the Switch has both Joy-Cons attached to it, allowing for gaming on the go.

The Joy-Cons!



The Joy-Cons combine years worth of controller innovations into two small packages of fun! You can detach and attach them to the Switch at will, attache them to the Joy-Con Grip, and you can even forego Joy-Cons altogether by getting your hands on the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller! So many different ways to play!

Other Details!

-Console costs $300, while the Pro Controller is $70 and separate Joy-Cons will run you $90. poo poo be expensive
-Comes with a USB Type-C charger; battery life will vary depending on the games you play
-Up to 8 Switches can connect to each other for multiplayer
-A paid online subscription service is planned to launch in the fall, reports indicate that it'll be fairly cheap (roughly $17.50 to $26.50 per year)
-NO REGION LOCKING
-Has a capacitive touch screen, meaning it registers more than one touch
-Uses micro SD cards; would probably be a good idea to get a bigger card ASAP
-Cartridges are back, baby
-Specs are for losers and turbonerds that hate fun

Shut up about the console and show me the games!

If you say so!

Launch Day:

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild



The biggest, most badass Zelda game ever is finally here! Live off the fat of the land and gather weapons and items as you go along your quest! Or just go straight to the end and get your rear end whupped by Ganon! The possibilities are so open to you in the biggest Zelda masterpiece yet (once dual audio gets patched in)!

1-2-Switch



The most insane launch title for the system, 1-2-Switch is all about showing off what the Joy-Cons can do! Milk a cow! Eat a sandwich! Pretend you're playing Wild Gunman! Pick up the phone! Count Koizumi's ice cubes! Around 28 different mini-games in total!

Super Bomberman R



HOLY poo poo BOMBERMAN IS BACK! Join Bomberman and seven other explosive personalities as they fight the evil machinations of Emperor Buggler and his Five Dastardly Bombers! Some people think this game looks bad but they're wrong! Buy it so we can keep Bomberman alive and maybe get him into Smash Bros.!

Snipperclips - Cut It Out, Together!





Already being declared GOTY by goons in the previous Switch threads, Snipperclips is an adorable co-op puzzle game where you cut out shapes with a friend to solve puzzles! Play with a friend in World or Party Mode, or go head-to-head with up to four other players in Blitz Mode!

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment



The smash hit indie game of 2014 makes its way to Nintendo Switch as a launch title, with limited exclusitivity benefits! Purchase Specter of Torment by itself for a brand new adventure starring Specter Knight, or buy Treasure Trove and enjoy all the currently released content for Shovel Knight (includes the main campaign Shovel of Hope, Plague Knight's campaign Plague of Shadows, and the all-new Specter of Torment)!

Other Launch Titles
-Just Dance 2017
-Skylanders: Imaginators
-Fast RMX
-I Am Setsuna

Coming Soon:

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe



The perfect Mario Kart game returns, only this time it features the original Battle Mode and the return of Dry Bones (and also Junior, King Boo, and the Inklings) so now it's even more perfect. Also brings back Boo and Feather (Battle Mode only) items, and lets you carry two items like in Double Dash! Launches April 28th

ARMS



Following on the success of such beloved Nintendo fighting games like Urban Champion and Joy Mech Fight, ARMS smashes its way into the Switch's line-up! Choose from a cast of varied characters and arm types, then use your springy arms and character abilities to do battle! Playable with or without motion controls! Launches Q1/Q2 of 2017

Splatoon 2 (not Spla2n, Smellissa!)



The freshest game on the Wii U gets an even fresher sequel! Use new weapons like dual pistols, customize your Inkling more than ever before, and enjoy a brand new story that takes place after the events of the first Splatoon game! Launches Q2/Q3 of 2017

Super Mario Odyssey



All this time, subconsciously, I've wanted a game like Mario 64 that rehashes the plot of the Super Mario Adventure comic, and now I'm getting it. Also you can throw your hat and it has eyes? It looks like the best Mario game ever made. Launches Holiday 2017

Other Games Coming Soon
-Fire Emblem Warriors
-Xenoblade Chronicles 2
-Sonic Mania
-Project Sonic 2017
-Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (5/26)

-Disgaea 5 Complete (5/23)
-Skyrim
-NBA 2K
-Yooka-Laylee

FAQ

Do Switch cartridges really taste bad?

Yes. Nintendo has painstakingly coated each cartridge with denatonium benzoate, making it really bitter to taste and discouraging kids from eating them. It's not toxic, but keep this in mind when you decide to lick cartridges!

Should I bother getting this at launch?

If you really want Zelda and don't mind fighting other nerds for the system, then go for it. Otherwise, it might be a good idea to wait until availability for the system goes up (which should be once Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and ARMS are out)

How do I access a different eShop region?

Here's a handy guide on how to do this,, but the long and short of it is: Make a new Nintendo Account, change the region to the one you want (Japan for the Japanese eShop or United Kingdom for the European eShop), make a new user on the Switch, and connect that user with your new account.

When's the Virtual Console service coming out?

Soon™

Is the thread title gonna be changed every 12 seconds like the last two Switch threads?

No, and if VideoGames does do that, I will politely ask him not to do that

What does Waluigi think of the Nintendo Switch?

Trip report:

Both Best Buy and GameStop told me they only sold BotW Special Editions as preorders. So a reminder that Target will have a very limited amount tomorrow morning when they open. You could also try Toys R Us. WalMart tonight at midnight might also be a possibility.

Other than that, you and by you I mean ME are hosed.

My Switch (from GameStop) will be at the UPS depot tomorrow morning, as will my preorder for the new Temples album (coincidentally releasing tomorrow).

My copy of BOTW is coming from Amazon, and it shows a USPS tracking number. The gently caress?

Ups and fedex have contracts with usps to finish delivery. So they might ups to your town then go with the mailman to you.

There was sadness when my Gamestop inevitably over preordered and I was one over the limit, but at least the guy there told me about a Best Buy that had some and *that* guy just did a headcount and said "Everyone in this line is getting one".

I'm not saying Trump donated money to NAMBLA, but people are saying that. It's something I've heard, but I don't believe Donald Trump donated several million dollars to NAMBLA over the last several years. Still, if he did that would be a great reason to not release his tax returns
