I'm a little disappointed that there is an ethernet accessory because it means that the dock likely doesn't have a port. It could mean that it's intended to connect just to the tablet, but I think that's rather unlikely (even though it will probably technically still work in that matter connecting to the tablets USB-C port).

Yup and as much as I like to repeat it Harada's last four games have been on Nintendo platforms and he was asked directly about a Switch version and acted coy.

It's release date is being announced this month....

Notice how there isn't a Mario sticker for the console.

If Mario was at launch as well then surely it would have one like Zelda does.

  • Mortal Kombat XL

Or something new Nintendo is going to megaton us with.

If they both launch at the same time, Zelda will be stealing all the hype anyway.

Seems it's a french leak so that means one thing, since they are accessories for launch and they put a lot of emphasize on Zelda, I think it confirms definitely BOTW for the Switch launch

Injustice got a solid Vita port. I think that's what they were referencing.

Edit: Maybe not. Never mind, got hung up on the downport part when context suggests they meant Wii U.

While the Nintendo Switch is designed for play both in the home and on the go, Nintendo wants to be clear that it’s a home system first.

“Nintendo Switch is a home gaming system first and foremost,” the company told Polygon when asked if the system was going to impact the sale of the 3DS portable systems. “We have made no announcement regarding the future of Nintendo 3DS.

A home gaming system with no Ethernet port would be beyond silly. Not deal breaking of course, but a bad oversight.

The Ethernet adapter will probably be full-size USB and plug into the dock, just like on the Wii and Wii U. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Wii adapter worked with it.

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.

Yes and the connection in those adapters isn't as good as ethernet, I meant to write "ethernet" rather than wired connection.

It's hard to tell from a photograph of a black and white printing of a press render, but it looks like there might be a cutout for the screen on that one, too.

EDIT: Nope, sorry, looking at the wrong one. Yeah, it's hard to see how a touchscreen would work with that protector.

Why release a USB LAN adapter again if it has an ethernet port?
The leaks from Laurakatedale also said no ethernet on retail version.

How does an Ethernet port go against a home console?

Because it's a portable console that you carry with you on the go. You ain't plugging your ethernet in on the bus or train.

You would if you wanted to play it like a home console ie use ethernet.

I don't think KOF is a possibility but AFAIK there's nothing stopping it coming to other platforms.

I know they advertise it as a home console first that you can take on the go. "The take on you go" is the "gimmick" you can say and you can't take it on the go if you're playing online. You won't be able to pick it up and keep playing because you'll probably get kicked off online if you're using a Ethernet.

I'm not saying I wouldn't want it because I prefer an Ethernet port over not having one.

That fight stick implies that Hori knows about some high profile fighting game releases on Switch that we probably aren't aware of. Here's hoping that Tatsunoko VS Capcom gets a digital release on Switch's Virtual Console..... look I know it won't happen. Just let me dream.

When was KOF confirmed for console exclusive? Outside of not going on Xbox obviously.

Folk assumed because it was more or less done it meant it was at launch. Don't think there's ever been a rumour whole source was advising it was to be at launch. Same as the Zelda delay rumour it was based on the time needed to complete translations but not that there was an actual delay. You can kind of put together the source of any of these leaks here.

Mario makes sense as a holiday game.
