Lynn is in Fire Emblem Warriors? I'm happy... and yet confused... didn't they say the playable characters were going to be limited to Shadow Dragon, Awakening and Fates?

Project Octopath and Xenoblade Chronicles stole the show for me. The battle system in both games look fantastic. I love the artstyle of Project Octopath. The Nintendo Switch is going to continue on its path to the top.

The Switch is DOOMed this holliday!

I miss Iwata, he added so much personality to the directs. These directs now seem like something you'd show to investors. It actually made me lose interest in pretty much every game shown... oh well. I want miyamoto busting through walls with a sword, or iwata holding some bananas dang nammit!

I also loved them showes with muppets and bananas etc. But in the end, the games are what's important. And focusing purely on games is...Well.. Imprtant. I am so sold on XB2 and Octopath now, it's amazing and Doom was a dream come true (using myself as an example).

I seriously hope Doom, Resident Evil Revelations Collection, Wolfenstein 2, Skyrim, NBA 2k18, WWE 2K18, Rocket League, and LA Noire sell well on switch. The last thing I want is 2018 and beyond to go back to Wii U levels of 3rd party support because these games didn't sell and I think they all deserve to sell considering their all quality ports. I know I will be getting everything I listed above (except the 2K18's) my wallet will be crying this holiday.

I gotta say Switch's 1st year line-up IMO is the best first year software line-up for any console ever. Yes a lot of the games are ports but they're quality ports and let's not forget they're for a HANDHELD! My end year line-up is gonna look like this:

- Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Super Mario Odyssey
- Arms
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Splatoon 2
- Fast RMX
- NBA Playgrounds
- Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
- Fire Emblem Warriors
- Sonic Mania
- Sonic Forces
- Skyrim
- Pokken Tournament DX
- Doom
- LA Noire
- Resident Evil Revelations 1 + 2
- Rocket League

Not to mention big games I'm not interested in like the LEGO games, a lot of indie stuff, Xenoblade 2, the 2K sports titles, etc. Best 1st year line-up ever IMO.

Coud you people seriously stop calling it a mere handheld? It's an obvious hybrid, which is frrick genious.

Apart from that I agree. Great first year it seems, and much is yet to come!

Definitely the best first year for any console.

I'm glad to be finally getting arcade versions of Nintendo's classics.

btw is that November release date for the west? 'Cause I'm pretty sure the Japanese trailer said AA: Mario Bros is coming out the 27th of this month.

Wow, that was pretty f*cking awesome !
I came expecting nothing and ended up being impressed.

I mean DOOM, one of the very, VERY few games that actually made me jealous I don't have another console, is getting released for the Switch and that's awesome. Also super happy abàout how XB2 is turning out and Octopath looks brilliant !

Arcade Archives from Nintendo, that's also excellent news, I just love it !
Builders 1 is also good news and Wolfenstein 2, hey why not I'll take it.
SKyrim essentially dropping amiibo is also pretty cool after the Metroid fiasco. And of course, this had to be expected, but Mario completely stole the show and looks absolutely FANTASTIC !

I seriously don't think I've ever been this hyped for a game. Freaking Mario is back and it's glorious.
