I do like when a leak is pretty much exactly what the rumours said it would be. Why didn’t Nintendo announce this sooner?
Looks cool as fuck in the ad but i’m skeptical about the content. Skyrim Remastered, Zelda Wii U, another Mario Kart… all great stuff but it’s the lack of top quality games that killed the Wii and Wii U. It needs steady original games and I’m not convinced Nintendo are able to produce more than 2/3 a year based on how they’ve been.
So it looks like the gamepad thing contains all of the hardware? It seemed really slim and that makes me a bit nervy about the graphical output. Does the TV “Dock” thing contain some kind of upscaler or something to boost the resolution? If this is only marginally more powerful than the Wii U, I think that’ll make it really offputting.
I wonder how they’ll market it. Is this supposed to be a successor to the 3DS as well? If they try and advertise it as a handheld and a console, they surely won’t be able to satisfy both markets. If they release a different thing, a 4DS for example, surely that would put people off buying the Switch?
