Game Freak's Junichi Masuda really wants you to buy a Switch

Game Freak director Junichi Masuda would really love it if non-Switch owners became Switch owners. At a meet-and-greet event, Masuda was asked about the upcoming Pokemon game for Switch. While he didn't go into details, he did reconfirm that the team is hard at work on something. He followed that up by saying...

“Who owns a Nintendo Switch? If you don’t have it, please buy one.”

I imagine when Game Freak actually shows off their Pokemon title for Switch, a lot of people waiting to buy the system will rush to the stores and plop down their cash!

He has nothing to worry about. Once his company releases arguable one of the worlds biggest system sellers, many more will own the Switch

Make a new Pokémon Snap, then I'll buy one.

And a grocery store sells bread and milk.

It's THAT obvious!

If you want me to buy it, please have Nintendo give customers a way to back up all of their save data locally. S&M seem to have figured the magic secret out. Have someone phone them.

The no local saves thing is just awful. The cloud save service likely won't even be available when people need to back up their saves the most -- when the Switch is a 'retro' console being played 15 to 20 years from now and getting quite old. Since I do still play (and purchase) games that came out 15 years ago I care about this kind of longevity.

By the time the Switch is a "retro" console, hackers will have torn the thing apart and there will be ways to back up your data, count on it.

Hackers already found a way to back up saves

Well of course, the Switch's long-term goal isn't one per family, but one per player.

It's especially evident with their family package.

Being able to trade/battle with others close to you is the whole goal of the series afterall.

I want to buy one. I'm waiting for my dad to go to UAE to get one!

You want people to buy it ? GIve it to me as a gift then I will be your fan. LOL. WHATEVER.
