Basically, it mentioned that BoTW would probably come out in July, VC releases on switch will most likely have a small fee even if you already have it for previous systems, and Switch costing $300.

 

Switch tablet had a 3 hour battery life.

 

Talks about custom Joy-Cons.

Very interesting stuff about Mother 3. She goes on to say that her and Emily have heard from many reliable sources that a localization is in the works, but it just never surfaces. She calls it the "phantom rumor"

I want to believe. I know it can't happen but I want it to be true so badly.

Says that Monolith Soft are working on something new that isn't the XCX Switch port, but the new game has combat similar to XCX's

Yesssssssssssssssssss. I want to abuse more things with Overdrive and Ghostwalker.

Oh yeah, there was also that stuff about the Switch itself, I suppose, but those two points were by far the most interesting to me.

As long as you have a soft-modded 3DS, there's nothing stopping you from playing Mother 3 on the system natively, as the 3DS has a built-in GBA (sans card slot, it reads roms as if they're carts, not emulated).

Oh yeah, I'm well aware. I've had a DS flash cart that works on the 3DS for ages and played Mother 3 multiple times. But it's different from an official release, which would actually bring public recognition to it and makes more people interested in the series. It's one of my favorite games, and I'd love to see it get a proper, official localization.

And just as a side note, as far as I can tell, soft-modding a 3DS is basically impossible on the newest system update, at least until a new exploit's found.

VC is such a clusterf*uk.  Licencing issues have held them back more that I understand.  I don't get why not every single one of their first party titles are available on the VC.  It just doesn't make sense to me.


This I agree with. I understand they need to license third-party games, but there's no excuse not to put all of their own games up there and actually give us some variety.
 

It's been taken down?


Still up for me.

Nintendo being Nintendo will probably release this at $300 with full price games to boot. Releasing a handheld with $50 games is suicide in the current market so this will all rest on how they market it as a dual function console.

Considering how they marketed the Wii U I'm not exactly optimistic.

EB Games Australia's site is up, but this is either a fake or something someone managed to snag just before it was taken off the site: https://i.redd.it/hkspxbkes77y.jpg

 

So that would confirm both the look of the game cases and that Skyrim is for sure coming.

 

Oh yeah and also note that those are placeholder prices.

 

EDIT: Apparently this was the site's state in October...

Most recent leaks peg Zelda as launch, which I hope actually ends up being the case because I don't know how much longer Scootaloo can stand waiting for this game before she physically explodes or something

 

ONLY YOU CAN SAVE HER, NINTENDO

A bunch of licensed Switch products have had their documents leaked. There's stuff like screen protectors, third-party controllers, Joy-Con chargers, skins, etc. Also A CAR CHARGER THIS IS PERFECT FOR MOST PEOPLE.

If they didn't have a car charger, I'd really have to take a step back, and rationally ask myself why I'm such a rabid fanboy. :P

 

My car actually has a regular AC outlet (but it is only 115v instead of the usual 120) as well as a cigarette lighter thingy.

 

 

EDIT: Come to think of it though, how much playing will be I be doing when I'm driving around by myself, which is most of the time?
