Picking ours up on Saturday. Sadly along with Zelda includes 1-2 switch game which will be going for a fiver in a month but oh well. Boxes are kinda cute not that it matters. Won't be buying any other games until splatoon 2 (which my son loved) and on the fence over a marginally better Mario Kart 8.
Want to see what the 3rd party support will be a year from now. Crucial for long term success.

It's an exciting piece of kit, IMO. Zelda will be the most powerful handheld game ever released I think?

Think that is beyond doubt.

Especially when some gamers go to all the trouble to have a traveling set up for their XBox or Playstation. :lol:

Getting mine day 1. Yeah I know this is probably the "Beta" period of the Switch's launch but I know I'll be quite happy with Zelda, then Mario Kart next month, then whenever I decide to pick up Arms and Bomberman which by then E3 will come around to announce more stuff as well as Splatoon 2 not being too far off after that, and whatever downloads the eShop will have...

I'm beginning to feel the hype a bit too.

For some reason I always go for the Nintendo consoles at launch, and haven't been disappointed yet.

My only gripe was the relative hassle it has been getting a copy of Zelda guaranteed (I hope).

I can't understand why they wouldn't produce equal numbers of Zelda and Switch consoles, as lets face it, its the only physical game at launch worth getting.

I'm hoping for Zelda, Snipper Clippers and Fast RMX at launch. That will keep me busy for months.

Seeing as Zelda is not sold out yet, I bet you will be able to get a copy at launch.:)

I have a copy, but a certain high street retailer is sold out according to their sales staff.

So the Nindies video hit the internet earlier today. :) Lots of interesting games, some timed exclusives, some real exclusives, some multiplatforms. But the major one for retro enthusiasts I guess, is Blaster Master Zero, coming for Switch and 3DS as a timed exclusive.:D

Here's the entire video:

I'm already liking the indie support for the Switch. One of the reasons I liked it so much for the Vita was the portable nature of the handheld, so with the Vita support on decline in this aspect and the Switch getting loads of indie titles I'd want to play on a handheld is a win win situation for me. Really looking forward to Blaster Master next week.

Why? Is it an exclusive? What happened to the pc and PS4 versions?
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

It's in this montage of switch titles that Greg Johnson tweeted.
