I do not know if it is because Nintendo made me wait so long or if it is the thought of having a handheld/console combo but I am really excited about the 3 minute trailer we are supposed to get tomorrow.

Please let it be a handheld/console sort of thing and please let it be good. I have wanted that for so long.

The Japanese Nintendo account says the video will be 3 minutes long, so it's not a full Nintendo Direct, 90 minute job. I'll have a post up on the front page as soon as an embedable version of the video is up.

Yeah, this looks like they kept all the stuff that was smart about the Wii U rather than abandoning it, and just built in a bunch of sensible evolutionary steps to that formula. Well done. I'm excited.

Joy-Con is... not a good controller name, though. That coulda' baked a little while longer.

Yeah I just read the summary on Nintendo's website.

Interesting how they are referring to this as a home console and thus the Wii U successor while making little mention of the 3DS. It'll be interesting to see if they continue making separate portables. I imagine that decision will come down to how well the Switch sells.

Interesting. Nintendo basically did what everyone wanted them to do and made their next console a handheld. But it can still be used on a TV... Clever bastards.

I'm so square. I was 20 minutes late to the party.

Very very interested. The kids are freaking out.
