Has anyone heard about this yet? Looks kind of cool. There's only been a short trailer so far, apparently more details are coming out in January and the console's releasing some time in March.

Oh. Also I should let you know that Nintendo has claimed that all the games in the trailer are for example and are not confirmed games that would be released. I just don't want you to be disappointed when they never have Skyrim on the Switch. We  should know more about the launch games on January 12th

^ Pretty sure that's just Nintendo being weirdly stubborn about not letting any *official* details about software drop before January 12th.

It would be extremely odd for them to showcase only two third-party pieces of software in their three-minute trailer and not have those games release for the console. It would be a very bad look for them.

Dunno, it looks sweet but I'm wary...I just hope it gets some retrocompatibility.

I also wonder if it will replace the DS portable game line? Ughh....just I was finally able to save for one (real life priorities > the new toy)

Also, is important to consider if it will have a big enough title gallery when it launchs or if that's not the case, then the speed at which the gallery could expand.

It might replace the DS/3DS line... Nintendo have been pretty vague about that at the moment, I think they're waiting to see if the Switch sells well before they decide (kind of like the way the DS replaced the Game Boy Advance years ago). If Switch sells poorly, I think there will be a 3DS successor.

Lots of games have been announced! Granted, many of them are out on other consoles already (pretty normal for a new console), but there are still some interesting exclusives coming out this year.

Snipperclips is out at (or close to) launch, and looks really special:

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also a confirmed launch title now:

Super Mario Odyssey is out later this year:

A new Xenoblade has been confirmed, apparently also coming out this year:

Arms, a new fighter out in a couple of months (apparently it's quite a bit deeper than the trailer shows):

The latest Dynasty Warriors + Nintendo crossover, Fire Emblem Warriors:

And a new Fire Emblem next year, too. Also a Splatoon sequel and an upgraded port of Mario Kart 8 this year!

I'm so turned off with Nintendo since the Wii U.  They messed up so many things with that console.  I'll be skipping this one.  It's time they make Mario available on other platforms.

I do belive the switch CAN be a huhe success but just if it is able to show that is a really amazing device. It needs a lot of third parties support, but it only be possible if their games runs at at least 1080p, and we have not seen anything like that this far. The console launching is three weeks away and many things can happen.

I pre-ordered one! I'm a huge Nintendo fan, but got a bit disapointed at the Nintendo Wii U. But I would like to play the new Zelda. So I pre-ordered one.

Yeah, they really messed up a lot of things, for example the The Legend of Zelda game they promised and is going to be released on the Switch first. I'm really unsure if I will be the new console. I'll have to wait to see the reactions and more details after its release to make a decision.

I saw on one of the tech blogs that some guy who pre-ordered already received his unit from some retailer who shipped too early.  Of course he has no games for it so it's basically a doorstop.

Nah, it's coming out on Switch and Wii U at the same time. I get why they'd be bringing it to Switch, though - I don't think anything was going to turn around Wii U sales, but with Switch they've got a clean slate, better marketing and better tech. Having Zelda as a launch title will help them a lot.

I've pre-ordered mine - along with Zelda and 1-2-Switch. I'll be getting Snipperclips if it's available at launch, too, I can't wait to try that one!

The story seems to be different. He bought it from someone who bought it from someone else who had stolen some units at his work. The guy who showed us the Nintendo Switch got contacted by Nintendo. He needed to return the Nintendo Switch, otherwise he would be sued. He couldn't handover a receipt from the Switch. So he lost his money and his Nintendo Switch.
