You guys, we are so nearly there. Tomorrow is the big day. Less than one solar day until it all changes when the Fire Nation attacks the Switch is revealed.

 

You might ask if we really need a whole new thread to discuss this, but I put it to you fine ladies and gentlemen that, yes, we do. Mostly because I'm so super hyped I can't stand it, if we're being honest. This is it. A new video game console, from Nintendo, is about to be announced. It's going to have a Zelda on it. It has a controller with regular buttons and, crucially, it is not the Wii U. I'm excited, you guys.

 

Allow me to present you with a brief rundown of what we might expect from this event, keeping in mind that I take my list-making extremely seriously and would never ever exaggerate:

 

- It's an actual stage event being streamed live from Japan. Nintendo's rented out a whole convention hall in Tokyo for press to get hands-on time with the thing, and I believe there's a matching even in New York, too.

 

- Not to blow anyone's minds here, but they're probably going to go in pretty hard on that there Legend of Zelda. It's all but confirmed as the big killer app launch game, and it obviously looks like a cool video game.

 

- We know there's a 3D Mario, several Wii U ports and Skyrim from that last trailer they put out. I imagine there'll be a lot of Wii U ports over the years, since they're probably easy to make and nobody has actually played them because they didn't have Wii Us. You have no idea how hard I would rebuy The Wonderful 101, you guys. No. Idea.

 

- Leakers are reporting everything from Mother 3's long-awaited English release to a Switch-exclusive exclusive Beyond Good & Evil 2. A third version of Pokemon Sun/Moon entitled Stars, and some kind of unholy Ubisoft Rabbids/Mario crossover RPG, too.

 

- Devil May Cry 5, Metroid Prime 4, Scalebound and Half-Life 3 will definitely be there.

Hold onto your butts, people. Hold on tight and for the love of God don't let go. It's Switch time, and your body will not be ready.

YOU GUYS! There are less than FIFTEEN MINUTES until it happens. UNTIL. IT. HAPPENS! Here's the link again just in case you missed it six inches up the page:

March 3rd, for $300 USD. Now just give me the storage size, that's all I need.

Oh my God they're charging for online! OH NOOOO this is terrible! They blew it already.

 

No region-lock confirmed right out of the game, though.

Three hundred bucks and paid online is really not what I was hoping for. I mean, Nintendo doesn't even have a proper account system right now, and we're supposed to trust them enough to start paying for it right out of the gate? You're 'avin' a laugh, mate.

 

Hope they get started on those hot game announcements real quick. It's time, Nintendo:

We ain't got all day.

 

EDIT - 2.5 - 6 hour battery life, depending on game. Joy Cons are diminutive, but they have tiny shoulder buttons on top, and a PS4-style Share button.

Worry not, the JoyCon can convey to you the feeling of ice cubes rattling in a cup.

 

EDIT - Oh no, we're suddenly back in the days of attractive multicultural models pretending to play video games on camera with Wiimotes.

 

What anime did this dude just step out of?

EDIT - The Wiimote shovelware minigame collection that they've inexplicably decided to show off as the first Switch game, 1-2-Switch, will launch alongside the Switch. As in, you've gotta pay for it. Separately. It's not a pack-in. Oh God.

 

EDIT - Splatoon 2 confirmed. There's a new song, but it is not as good as Kid Now Squid Now. Things that are happening on-stage:

EDIT - Oh man, this Mario looks crazy. He was in a modern-day New York looking city running around next to yellow taxis and regular people with normal proportions like one of those Sonic games.

GOOD VIDEO GAMES ARE HERE! Mario's hat has eyes (Super Mario: Minish Cap) and he's jumping into soup.

 

Super Mario Odyssey for Holiday 2017.

 

Now Monolithsoft. I... don't know what this is. I don't think that's an XCX remaster.

It's just called Xenoblade 2, which I imagine is a sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles (which was just called Xenoblade in Japan).

 

Now there's a Koei Tecmo Fire Emblem game, which I can only assume means a Musou/Dynasty Warriors thing like Hyrule Legends.

Is it a sequel to X? I was thinking it was a sequel to the original.

It's a sequel to regular Xenoblade Chronicles, for the Wii and 3DS. I should really finish that game at some point.

 

I think this is Shin Megami Tensei 5 now. Just a CG trailer, though, so I wouldn't expect anything soon.

 

Square-Enix has an SNES-era-looking JRPG called Project Octopath Traveller.
