@Barbiegurl777 Hi there! Long time no see! Glad that you seem to be doing well! 😁

All of the previous posts have covered any game suggestions that I would have for you, going off of your tastes. I will say this: I picked up my own Switch this past holiday season and absolutely love it! I've been juggling my already extensive Switch library with my 3DS and DS libraries. I considered getting a Switch Lite, but it's strictly portable and can't connect to a TV; it cut out a little too much to offer a lower price point for my liking.

It's ironic that you show up and ask about Animal Crossing when the latest entry will show up on March 20th.

@Barbiegurl777 - Haha, there it is, good to see it again. From what I know you enjoy playing, Switch probably doesn’t currently have the sheer number of games the 3ds had that fit your tastes exactly, but there is good variety to be found. If you play the Nintendo core franchise games, there’s a number of good games waiting for you there.

YES!! Finally Nintendo got smart & ditched the region locking. I hated that tbh! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I ironically have a few Japanese DS games: Dr. Slump DS (Unlocked everything) Mame Goma 1, 2, & 3 DS. Some of the Japanese games it's not so much knowing the language but figuring out the control's & movement in the game once that's mastered the games are quite simple. I play them fine without a problem just can't read the text lol. I even imported Daa! Daa! Daa! (UFO Baby) GameBoy Color. I went old school & dug out my GBA SP to play it the graphics are amazing for a game boy color game! πŸ˜πŸ’•

Has anyone noticed on the Japanese games they put both the English & Japanese keyboard in the games for text like usernames etc. I noticed that on several of my Japanese ds games & even the gameboy color games! πŸ‘ Just thought it was interesting! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I think I'm going to get the Nintendo switch that connects to the TV. Just have to save my allowance for 3 months! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Playing 3ds in the mean time! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Happy Gaming! (^~^)

@Tyranexx,

LOL yeah every time I watch cartoon's on Nickelodeon they keep showing commercials for animal crossing on the Nintendo switch the graphics look awesome! πŸ˜†πŸ‘

@Barbiegurl777 Animal Crossing on Switch really does look like a beautifully polished game! While it isn't fully on my radar right now, I'll likely end up getting the game at some point down the line. I already have so much to play! XD

I talked it over with my dad this morning. He wants me to wait until either black Friday around Thanksgiving or this Christmas 2020 to get the Nintendo switch. He said because around the holidays they do sales or special promotions that kind of thing lol. Plus looking forward to E3 this year in June! πŸ˜‰

I decided I'll get: Luigi's Mansion & Animal Crossing as my first 2 Nintendo switch games.

I do have 3 other questions I hope no one minds lol:

Does the Nintendo switch need a micro SD card?

Can we download games on the Nintendo switch? I'm assuming the answer is already yes but just guessing...

Does the Nintendo switch run faster than the Nintendo Wii u?

Those are my last questions! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Happy Gaming! (^~^)

Play on tv.

Not if they want everyone to enjoy on the fun then the Standard Switch is what they would want it cost more but gives you more options.

@Switchforce,
I know. I saw the Nintendo switch & Nintendo switch lite at Walmart yesterday. Then my mind started racing with a million questions lol.

But if you want everyone to enjoy the games I Recommend getting the standard Switch don't get the Lite version this will only limit you to Portable Mode no TV Docking mode.

For me it started the moment the NX code name for the Switch was in rumour mills that a whole lot of NIN Fandom started chatting here and online forum and twitter about this.

E3 will be low key as everything that could help Switch has come and still expanding. Black Friday or Thanksgiving will not make the Switch cost less to get. What might be is they will have more Switches with extra included and that will cost more. So I would say don't wait if you can afford it now-get it and enjoy it. Also get extra Joy-Cons or Pro controller so you can have multiple players join the fun. One to get is Ring-Fit game this is selling very well for Nintendo.

You should look at the Mario series games otherwise also get A/C 4.

I recommend at least 400gb this is the best price and big there is a 1tb in the pipe but is extremely expensive as much as the Switch Lite. So I am holding out to get it to reload all my games again. Remember eShop games takes up microSD space so be careful to not sell yourself short when buying eShop games. eShop games takes up microSD space along with your game updates.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Yes as long as you setup a NIN account for each users the limitation is eShop games bought on one account can be played on another account but eShop games downloads are tied to the eShop account.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

It is faster and more expansive in hardware and games. And Wii/U games that are popular some are being remastered to Switch.

Nothing wrong asking.

@Barbiegurl777 1st question: You'll need a microSD card for downloading games. I highly recommend one actually, especially if you're gonna buy a lot of games from the eShop - the Switch's internal memory is only 32 GB so you probably won't get too much stuff on there. Try finding a microSD card that has a good amount of storage and at a reasonable price.

2nd question: Yes you can download games from the Nintendo eShop. There's quite a few download-exclusives too.

3rd question: From my experience, yes it does. The Switch seems to start up games faster than how the Wii U does it.

Wii/U to Switch is night and day also your not tied to the chair. This is one investment you won't regret buying. The Switch will always be in demand.

@SwitchForce

I completely agree with you about getting the Nintendo switch sooner because I have the cash but trying to avoid conflict with my parents. It's easier to wait it out & get it at Christmas as opposed to arguing with them lol~ Thanks for all the advice! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ See everyone around Christmas lol~

Happy Gaming! (^~^)

@Barbiegurl777 That's why we give each our own experiences to the talk. When to buy will be up to the buyer. But even if you wait there nothing wrong either way just do alot of research to see what best fits your need and want before jumping in. If your a collector that is different compare to just gamer wanting to game and have fun. Well arguing with parents has good and bad points. So do what works for your situation and wait to have fun later. Good Luck.

Strictly speaking, Switch doesn't need a micro sd, @Barbiegurl777 .... You'd probably want to get one, though! Not only can you download any game for Switch digitally but there's quite a few either not available at all physically or that difficult to get that way.

What kinda mentallity is this. The microSD is for software update and DLC so to tell them not to get it isn't a wise move here.

@BruceCM

Well I went to Walmart again & checked there game section. They have Nintendo switch games for around $20 in the case which isn't a bad deal. I can download the games or buy the cartridge either way it doesn't really matter to me. I like downloading a little only because it saves on space in the house plus I don't have to look for cartridge lol. Honestly though from what I saw even when the 3ds was big it look's like Nintendo is trying to push the idea of downloading more as opposed to cartridges. It will probably come to a point where all the games are eventually downloaded all together & cartridges are eventually done away with...

@Switchforce,

Don't worry! πŸ˜‰ Way ahead of you as for already planning on getting the micro sd card lol! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Happy Gaming! (^~^)

@Barbiegurl777 good for you don't listen to Trolls telling you not to get a microSD especially if you eShop games this will save you internal Storage for game saves. This is something those telling you not to get a microSD don't tell you. And if you transfer to a new Switch unit having the eShop on the microSD makes transfering data/files much faster. Get the biggest microSD you can afford 400gb is alot but if you eShop this will give you more options. Until they get cheaper 1tb that's my next move.

I still very much enjoy my 3ds & Wii U & am wondering if it's worth upgrading to the Nintendo switch or Nintendo switch lite...

In my opinion it's very worth it . . . though it's not an upgrade, it's more like a totally new and amazing experience. Nothing like the WiiU but better . . . in most ways.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Can the Nintendo switch that connects to the TV

The standard Switch can do this and many people (myself included) play the standard Switch on the TV the most.
Both versions, standard and can be played portably also, but the Switch Lite is portable only (ie no use with the TV)

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Can the the controller itself fit in a purse for on the go?

Yes . . . but you need to think differently. The small controllers that come with the Switch (joycon) attach to the side to the Switch if you get a standard Switch. The portable only Switch Lite have the controls built into the console itself (like the 3DS and Gameboys). So if you get a case for your Switch, you don't need to put your controllers inot a bag as the Switch case holds it all.

The one exception is the Switch pro controller, which I recommend is used for TV play (and tabletop mode). It functions just like the WiiU pro controller but feels a lot better to use.

Table Top mode would be like putting a 3DS in the desk and using an external controller to play it. It works with the Switch well because of it's larger screen. So you can use a pro controller with your Switch and not need a TV.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Or can it solely be played in the house?

The Switch can be played anywhere in the world. Just like the 3DS.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

I know Luigi's mansion is on the Nintendo switch unless there are other really good games that someone can recommend...

There are literally hundreds of great games on the Switch. Something for everyone. Very hard to recommend you anything unless we know what kinds of games you like. With a little research I am sure you'd find at least a few games you'd like, probably many many more.

Maybe if you could tell us your favourite WIiU games, that'd be a nice start to helping us answering this question for you.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Does the Nintendo switch lite have any pro's or cons?

The Switch Lite is portable only. No TV play. The Standard Switch is both TV play and portable play. That's the main difference.
Also a few games, like 5 at most out of the over 1000 that exist need joycon which only come with the standard Switch.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Or should I still wait a little while longer before upgrading to either system?

I think the best answer is to see what games you like. I didn't get a WiiU till 2.5 years after it was released because I didn't like any of the early games for it. I think the best answer is to see what games you like on the Switch and if there is enough of them, feel free to get a Switch.

Nintendo has said they want the Switch to last a while, like at least 6 years. So you have at least 3 more years of Switch before Nintendo thinks about a Switch 2.

Harvest Moon? Animal Crossing? Anything Disney? Barbie games? Hello Kitty games?

Harvest Moon - Yes (and a few really similar games that are great like Stardew Valley)
Animal Crossing - Yes, coming out March 20
Disney - A few games yes
Barbie games? Hello Kitty games? - Not sure, I don't think so but I am sure someone else will know.

Barbiegurl777 wrote:

Any helpful advice would be appreciated!

My advice would be look at the games. They are why people want a Switch in the first place. See what you like on the WiiU and see what is similar on the Switch.
Also I think you'd be better with a standard Switch. Because it can be played on the TV and portably. You did talk a lot about the TV in your topic here. But the choice is up to you.

Problem here is WiiU is no long production and games from Wii/U the most wanted are re-mastered to the Switch. Don't let others tell you don't buy a Switch for the money you spend on it it's worth it. There is no other console that does this and will be able to do this. Having a xbox/psx power system misses the mark on just purely enjoying the game and having multiple units in one place or controllers for many family members to join the fun. Those other system haven't fully caught up to the Switch and what it does.
Barbiegurl777 wrote:

All of those games are released so far Disney they have the lion king and barbie that requires licenses fees of which would be cost prohibited to get and they have Hello kitty racing game. So those games are already there. I got most of those besides lion king and barbie.

I totally think it is worth it. But as mentioned, if u have waited this long, still enjoying WiiU and 3ds, why not wait a bit longer and see if a Switch Pro comes out?

That's because The PS and Xbox are not trying to catch up to what the Switch does. They are doing their own thing and competing with each other to be masters in their domain. The Switch is a totally different beast as we all know, with no true competition at the moment for what it does.
