This is exactly what I wanted out of the hardware, so I am pretty excited.
edit: NoA video is finally up.
I'm relieved that there will be a "Pro" controller option at launch.
All true, but only the Pro Controller has a d-pad.The system itself kind of IS a pro controller. If you dock it or stand it up they supply this block of plastic as a holder and spacer between the left and right parts making it into a controller away from the screen. The added stand alone pro controller is kind of just an added pay perk or forthose who want more than one controller.
I'm confused lol. So does this play 3ds or Wii U games or neither? I don't get what people are so hyped about. It's a Wii U tablet that you could take where ever. Doesn't look that portable either.
Nope, just plays its own Nintendo Switch games. Yeah, they basically put Wii U level hardware (personally, I think it will less powerful than Wii U - it will use shittier textures, lighting, etc. for the sake of running at 1080p 30-60fps) right into the tablet. And I agree; it doesn't look portable. I'm not hyped, but I think it's good for Nintendo to accept the fact that they're never going to be #1 and will always be a secondary gaming device these days. I think they're playing to that strength. But some of the features are just stupid.
