Currently watching a DJ standing between 2 giant screens, with oodles of lazer lights, whilst some synthy music plays, waiting for the 4am kick-off of Nintendo's great big event begins..

Excite!!

(Doubting that the music isn't being dubbed, since it's not quite as flashy as the visuals!!)

7 minutes to go! The excitement is palpable.
If Nintendo have learned one thing from Apple, it's that making people wait for online presentations builds hype!!

Facts so far.
Release : 3rd of March 2017
Price US $299 : Europe "See your local stockists"...!?

Amazon UK's listing that Pre-orders will be available Jan 13th from 7am. Still haven't listed a price, though!

|update| Nintendo Life are suggesting a £279 pricepoint |update|
|update| Having just ordered from both Amazon and Game, yep, £279! |update|

Approx 2->6 hour battery... So 2, then!

Extra JoyCons will be available in at least 2 other colours.. Red'ish and Blue'ish

Local wifi for up to 8 Switch's at once.
It doesn't mention how many JoyCons you can connect to a single Switch, but 2 pairs seems to be alluded to in a few of the videos.

Online-play will be premium!! (Shockingly un-Nintendo-like)

No Region Lock "As standard", which suggests game-dev's will be able to lock their games if they want.. Which, from past experience, pretty much means every game you actually want WILL be region locked..

Joycon "wrist strap" for motion control, clips on making the controller bigger.

Rumble/haptic feedback from each JoyCon.
The left one (or is it both!?) has a camera that seems fairly capable for distance/movement sensing, as well as hand signals.!?!

Game : 1-2-Switch : Release March 3rd
Welcome back WiiSports
Essentially trying to be a new WiiSports, but entirely played with the controller. You don't even need to look at the screen.
Play directly against the other player.

Game : Splatoon 2 : Release : Summer

I've not played Splatoon, yet.. I probably should, at some point.
Nothing new, really. Just more-bigger-better.

Game Trailers and other bits and pieces.
Xenoblade 2
Fire Emblem Warriors
Dragon Quest 10+11
Dragon Quest Heroes 1+2
Something that looked odd from Atlus but had a 100% Japanese title, so I have no idea what it was..
Project Octopath Traveller from Square Enix (!?!)

Sega says "That's nice, we'll make something", then.. don't actually show ANYTHING.. !?!

Bethesda show off Skyrim for a bit.

Grasshopper show off a character, Travis, from No More Heroes, and tell us that they think the character's popular, so they should make a game with him.. (!!!) Incidentally, the translator's having a REALLY hard time keeping up with this guy!

ugh.. EA's time..
"I have been such a fan of Nintendo, I gave my firstborn son the middle name 'Luigi'..."
"We love Nintendo.. ...
.. FIFA!!!!! WE MAIK TEH FIFA GAIM! SELL MANY AND MUCH GET SALES! WOW FIFA! WEEE!"

Unreal Engine 4 apparently works well on the Switch, too!

Amazon have a strict 1-per-customer rule, so I had to order one from Amazon, and a second from Game, instead..

*tut*

My Niece's birthday's 8th March, so hopefully they'll both be here by then. .. Because she ain't getting whichever one arrives first

Other than the Zelda video it was all a sack of shit.

As a huge Nintendo fan, I was very disappointed - nothing I'm interested in there at all (obviously except for Zelda). Hopefully third-parties will announce something woth buying after the presentation. E3 might bring in a lot more stuff, but this certainly didn't.

The hardware looks great; it just lacks software to make up for it.

That was the worst presentation I've ever sat though - I struggled to stay awake. Boring.

That 1-2-Switch seems fun. Like they remembered what it was that made the Wii so good,
The Boxing thing.. not so sure it's compatible with my motion sickness. As much as I can play Wii Tennis for a short time, I can't play Wii Bowling or Boxing, because there's a bit too much movement involved.

Shame Mario's such a long long way away. Fiddlesticks.

I'll probably grab that Puyo Tetris, and will definitely be getting Sonic Mania..

All those JRPG games.. meh.. There were a large number of those, but you have to remember this was primarily a Japanese presentation.
Apparently there's a much more varied selection of games in the playable demo room.

1 2 Switch? No thanks. Who the fuck is going to pay more than a tenner for that?

Arms? No thanks. The players in the vid couldn't even hit each other!

FIFA? GTFO. GO. NOW. FUCK OFF!!

Splatoon 2? Still not unwrapped the first game for my WiiU.
Xenoblade 2? Same as Splatoon 1

Sonic? Only 30 years too late. Not fussed by anything Sonic nowadays.

Mario - I love the Galaxy Games and Mario 64, but seeing a squat Mario in a world of normal people was kind of jarring. Should have had Mario-esque peeps or Toads etc. IMHO. But yeah, I'll probably get that.

Zelda? Ooooooooooh yes!!!

Disgaea 5 complete has been announced. That's a must buy I have to say.

Puyo-Tetris? Yeah, at a budget price. No way I'd pay more than £20 for that.

So, yeah, nothing really for me that I can't get on the WiiU. I think I'm going to wait to get a Switch. I'm really hoping that E3 might be promising.

All I needed was mentions of Animal Crossing, Pikmin and Metroid (seeing as Mario and Zelda was already mentioned) and I would have been a bouncing bunny. Nothing else matters.

Dad - "Yeah, err... son"
Mum - "We've got you the new Nintendo Switchy thingy"
Dad - "We don't want you to access any naughty sites and stuff with it, so we're going to turn on the parental controls"
Mum - "Can you show us how to turn them on?"

The Game Collection has them all for £50. Even so, that's still £10-£15 more than I'd be willing to pay for most games and abut £49.99 too much for 1 2 Switch!

Looks like I'll be waiting for Christmas 2017... not enough launch games.

I'll be comparing the reviews on Zelda for the Wii U (which we already have) and the Switch (Wii U 2).

Already I've heard it's much smoother (fps-wise) on the Switch, but then you have to take into account the incomplete nature of the game during these gameplay tasters.

I'll definitely get a Switch, but I'll probably wait a bit. Maybe. I'm a real sucker for Nintendo stuffage.
