I thought it was a joke after watching for a while until I saw it is on Nintendo's official youtube channel.

Don't get me wrong, It's nice to have new ways to play games, but this teaser looks ridiculous.

Only Nintendo could release a peripheral for its old (sic) console and release it's brand new handheld the week later. I adore them.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

That kept me scratching my head too. Well shit, how are Switch Lite users going to use this thing?

I guess it will just register the linear motion and the spatial position using both Joycon's sixaxis MEMS.

And when you stretch the ring you are just pressing SL and SR.

That's true, but I think the novelty of having a console with peripherals that get players moving has long worn off.
Personally, this is something I've wanted from Nintendo since Wii Fit came out: a more active motion-based game, but not as focused on fitness and instead using the maneuvers for games, too. This looks like it could be the heir to both Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit at the same time, but I could be wrong. ARMS was a good spiritual successor to Boxing. I'd like to see Nintendo refine their old Wii ideas on the Switch since the motion hardware is better.

Me too, I thought it was a troll.

And I will buy this, I am a sucker for this kind of stuff *looks a Fit Board*

Are joycons not compatible with the lite? If so that is even lamer than no video out.
I guess they would be, wirelessly? They won't slide into the console itself (the joycons aren't detachable) so I guess you will be able to sync extra ones with the sync button.

*Sold separately

This has some meme potential, but nothing that beats that guy munching the invisible burger with the controller near his mouth from 1-2 Switch.

From Nintendo’s website:


Game Compatibility
Nintendo Switch Lite can play the games in the Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode.
For games that do not support handheld mode, players can wirelessly connect compatible controllers (sold separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite. If using separate Joy-Con controllers, users will need to have a device to recharge them, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip.

https://www.nintendo.com/switch/compare/#game-compatibility


So, if you have a Lite, you would link Joy-Cons as necessary.

I can't believe I forgot about that one.
Man Nintendo is something else after feasting on that Wii money.

Nintendo make the best games in the industry... But their commercials have always been ass and cringe to levels that shouldn't exist. I'll stick to their games and console, not these ads for gimmicks.
