FFS Nintendo.

On the bright side, the 5ghz WiFi supposedly available for the Switch looks to be way more solid at least.

Still would prefer ethernet but I want to give this a shot.

Please remember that Harada said the release date of Tekken 7 was going to be announced in an event in January.

Take that as you will.

They have the car lighter ports, but no actual lighter and no ashtrays. They are simply legacy power ports now.

Only if you are too cheap to buy the adapter. I think it's likely that the adapters that worked with the Wii and Wii U will probably work for Switch.

It's annoying but I totally understand why they omit the Ethernet jack. The VAST majority of users will only ever use WiFi with their consoles. I'm a little surprised MS and Sony haven't tried omitting it yet.

Yeah, that fight stick is definitely eyebrow-raising. Tekken 7 seems likeliest, but I'd love if it was also an indication at MvCI showing up.

They're Nintendo's equivalent of Start and Select they've been using since the Wii. Though I think this is the first time they're shaped like their symbols instead of just being printed onto a default round button.

With a arcade stick, we must be getting a announcement in that genre. Since as said, that wouldn't really work well with Pokken or Smash.

Also worth mentioning that the people saying it was being delayed have been backing off on it.

Better than nothing. Of course the handheld itself can't have an Ethernet port and you can get dirt cheap adapters in Amazon.

UMvC3 is coming out on non-PS4 platforms in March, Tekken 7 is being released around that time, the Wii had a stick to play Tatsunoko vs Capcom...
It's not for Pokken. MvCI is likely if UMvC3 sells.

How are you getting that from these? I'm sure the dock that comes with Switch will have Ethernet. There's no way Nintendo would release a console in 2017 without one.

  • Mortal Kombat XL

The accessory could launch before the game does. Wouldn't be unheard of. I say Injustice is a good call.

It just hit me now, after seeing these accessories, that we're just two months away from a new console launch. Hype is building.

Zelda and Tekken 7 (assuming that's what the arcade stick is for) at launch would be great.

I mean, it probably wouldn't be that pretty, but they somehow managed to squeeze the first game onto the Vita, despite that system's deadly allergies to UE3.

True, & that would also put Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite in the running for use of said stick. I'm just talking about potential Day 1 fighting games.

If it happens to be Tekken 7, I wonder if that's the reason why it's taking so long for the release date to be announced. Simultaneous release on all systems would spoil the Switch release date.

It's being advertised by Nintendo as a home console first, even though it's technically a portable.
