Looks pretty legit.

I can't imagine it being anything special power level wise, but a portable WiiU is already pretty sweet IMO, the rest is gravy.

I like how this thing comes with enough controllers for local multiplayer out of the box

yep that console is legit, looks like it could be a huge success for them. Making it portable was exactly what the needed to do

goodbye, Wii U, I hardly knew you

Loved the name.

Couldn't tell if that was Splatoon 2 or just Splatoon with new hairstyles.

New Mario looks so good but I'm always gonna fanboy over any new 3D Mario. The artstyle is very different here.

People are just talking out of hype but this hybrid stuff is just a bad idea. The fact that it must go portable is gonna handicap the console and vice versa.

What did I just watch?

Another underpowered system by Nintendo? This doesn't bode well for third party.

Where can I preorder? I need this in my veins now.

Good job Nintendo. I'll be in line for my Switch day 1, just like the U, Wii, Gamecube, and N64.

Keep it up!

I'm so glad I bought Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon digitally..

..fingers crossed we'll at least get the switch versions for a reduced upgrade price (or free would be better).

Holy shit. First reaction was "this is stupid" but damn local multiplayer on the handheld part is awesome. I cannot let myself get hyped.

"what should we demo our new machine with guys?"
"how about a 5 year old game?"
"skyrim?"

In all honesty though the concept looks great, the console design looks phenomenal and i am really excited to see where this goes.

Man just looking back on the near unanimity of vocal GAF members claiming it could never be a hybrid, it feels really good to see that it's a hybrid for that reason alone.

I still think it's going to be a really tough sell. "Better than a tablet, weaker than a console". I don't know how well it'll sell outside people who travel a bunch

So that game with the dragon is Skyrim....hmmm...

From Software is going to do a game for NX too...hmmmm.

Yea next gen is gonna be interesting.

So are we finally all in agreement its a hybrid? I went back n forth over the past few months.

Most exciting thing for me is consolidating all of Nintendo's first party onto on system. All those kids used to playing on tablets will probably love it. I know my nephew will

That name though. I don't really like it

It's a glorified Wii U.

Can't believe everyone is losing it over that?

At least they will have more support if this does end up being their handheld as well. Not very portable though. Good lord I dunno people.

SOLD. Was really hoping the hybrid rumors panned out so I could get all their games on one machine. Being able to play the same games home and way without worrying about wifi speed for remote play is nice as well. I won't use it a ton, but nice to be able to just play whatever I'm in the middle of when traveling vs. starting something on a portable that I'll not finish upon return (sold off my portables a while back).
