@Harmonie
You're welcome to all of those opinions and more. But from what I'm reading, you're getting dangerously close to the whole "my opinions are facts" sort of statements. Like when you say it was Nintendo's "mistake" to put out a game like MK8 Deluxe, asking you to spend 60 bucks on a game you already owned

(and to be clear, there are WAY more differences between Deluxe and original that you failed to mention or perhaps are simply ignorant of such as: not only improved graphics but many new added effects on the tracks, an improved boost system, and an improved item system; online play also offers a new conveniences like changing your loadout without having to back out of the entire lobby),

you are speaking from a comparatively small viewpoint. Way more people did NOT own a Wii U than did. So you need to own that. You are speaking from a very particular viewpoint (and I'm one of you, as well - I owned a Wii U) that the majority of gamers do not have. So that means that many Switch owners, possibly even most, do NOT view MK Deluxe as a "mistake" or something they already owned because they never had the chance to experience it in the first place. It makes business sense for Nintendo to target these people. Soon enough the Switch is going to sell more in its first year or so than the Wii U did in its entire lifespan.

Now, that doesn't make you "wrong" or anything. Like I said, you're welcome to feel that way. But my impression from reading your posts is that you're not really giving a fair shake to a lot of your points, the MK8 example I showed above being just one of them. And I think that may rub some people the wrong way, that's all.

In my opinion, the Switch is fantastic and has allowed me to get a bit more gaming back into my life with its dual nature. And I'm not going to freak about the online stuff until we hear anything solid. Like my old friend used to say, "Worrying is like chewing bubble gum in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but doesn't get you anywhere."

@YummyHappyPills Love it! When will these numbnuts that call themselves journalists ever learn. NEVER rule out Nintendo.

Really like the look of The Escapists 2.I hadn't really paid much attention to it when it was revealed. I'm a little concerned it won't be so good in single player though. I've read some user reviews of the Steam version saying there's too much to do in single player making it really difficult. There is an online mode though so that may help. Anyone played it elsewhere?

Physical Switch games can be registered, but the amount of coins earned is FAR lower then on digital purchases. I can kinda get why they did it, but I do feel slightly snubbed (probably not too different then how you feel about MK8D).

Thankfully (er, kinda), My Nintendo sucks at the moment. So I can just ignore it.

Apparently Nintendo PR is asking outlets about requoting reviews for A Link Between Worlds.

My immediate guess is a new camapaign promoting the 2DS XL with lots of Selects games.

My other guess is hello HD version...

Its most likely the latter.

That's certainly exciting

I only say it's most likely the latter because the 3DS has had lots of sizzle reels promoting Selects games, heck the main 2DS XL had has loads of games highlighted, ALBW included.

These are quotes specifically for ALBW. Something with that game specifically is going on.

@YummyHappyPills

ALBW Bundle maybe?

Or maybe it's what that “3DS Link's Awakening sequel-remake“ actually is. Assuming the leak has any shred of credibility. Who knows what gets “lost in translation“.

Ohh the salt if there's another top down Zelda game coming to the 3DS.

@DarthNocturnal They already did a limited edition 3DS Xl when the game launched in 2013.

I'm starting to think that "3DS Link's Awakening sequel-remake" is "Link Between Worlds from 3DS sequel-remake"

An HD Link Between Worlds would be superb. I've never played the game. Maybe a 2D Zelda remaster and a brand new 2D Mario is what we'll get this year. I'd be well happy with that. Too soon or good timing?

@YummyHappyPills All those sites have one thing in common, they just regurgitate what the other is publishing, each trying to outdo their ever more salacious articles. Some of the Forbes commentators/articles are downright atrocious.

Eh I wouldn’t get too hyped about ALBW. It’s probably for Nintendo Selects I bet.

@WebHead Here's the thing, they didn't do that for the EU Selects release, nor have they had to to feature it in the sizzle reel ads.

And it's ALBW specifically, no mention of any other games.

It's such a peculiar circumstance. I mean it's just as likely it's for an ad or sizzle reel to really push how good the game is, or something else.

Nothing sells a remaster like "Look how good it was before"

Just to speculate, wasn't there a team that was looking of hire for another "legend" or something from the Zelda remake devs? Would certainly fit into the new game rumors

@Operative2-0 .....oh s*** you right.

Grezzo, the guys behind Ever Oasis, OoT 3D and MM3D.

....you don't think they are remastering another Zelda game for Switch?

I suspect we will get a 2D Zelda on switch at some point so yeah it’s possible.

While we're all aboard the 'speculation train', I just wanted to throw this out there...

I believe that Kimishima-san recently stated that Nintendo are going to be targeting 'broader demographics' with the Switch in 2018...and if there's one game series that successfully does exactly that, it's Animal Crossing. Based on that (possible mis-translation/throwaway statement) - and that alone - I'm feeling pretty confident that we'll be seeing AC: Switch at some point this year!

@NaviAndMii Didn't that line have more to do with using the more gimmicky features of the console, like the camera and the like?
