Man. What a world. I can finally import Taiko no Tatsujin and just play it instead of having to mod my system. Finally.

Japan has a garbage line up as well. I wonder what scraps EU will get.

Going to have to check out reviews for Dragon Quest 1 and 2. Other than Breathe of the Wiild there isn't anything I'm excited enough to buy for the first 2 months. Removal of region locking makes buying this early less painful.

Those first few months are going to be dry as fuck
As with any other console. The good thing is that the dry period will only be about half a year because Nintendo will not be handling Holiday 2017 like Summer 2013.

Also seeing how low key Mario Kart 8 was handled I could see them releasing a lot of WiiU ports (Mario Maker, Smash , Pokken etc.) to fill the gap.
Japanese third party support is way better than Wii U. Nowhere close to 3DS though.
how great was japanese third party support for 3DS in its first year?

the only notable release was Resident Evil and Street Fighter 4. combine that with the fact that nintendo had a really pisspoor 3DS launch lineup (unlike switch which has a zelda game)

3DS had Professor Layton, Dead or Alive, Ridge Racer, Kingdom Hearts and MGS3 all announced before launch. Not mindblowing but a bit better than this IMO.

Smash's absence is nothing surprising to me. There's simply no reason to rush it on the launch window. Unlike Mario Kart, which will eventually receive a proper sequel, there won't be another Smash game this generation. They will push it as the Switch Smash and release it at a time when there's no major competition from other Switch games.
