    But it's not a handheld.

    Inventors like NERD (Nintendo European Research and Development) are pretty able to assist nintendo with heavier work such as writing Backwards Compatibility stuff.

    Skies of Arcadia Legends and Tales of Symphonia on the go...... *drools* That'd be awesome.

    If this is gonna be confirmed, I'd rebuy Melee, Mario Party 7 and Kirby Air Ride in a heartbeat.

    If the switch's joy cons can be used as individual GameCube controllers then that means easy multiplayer for everyone! And four-player with an extra par, or a seond Switch.

    I've always wondered how shoulder buttons would work in horizontal mode...

    I don't think so, judging by the footage and patents

    That's because they are not visible

    I find it difficult to get excited over Gamecube VC rumors. Not only because it's just rumors.
    First: It will be quite expensive.
    Second: The games will be released one or two games at a time, and will mostly be games that everyone already played.

    But then again, I'll probably fall for it and buy a game or two. (Especially if they release Paper Mario TTYD.)

    Watch again. Specifically the sliding onto the switch scene, and the Mario kart scene where the extra shoulder button is used to drift. I'll link a YouTube video within an hour.

    I'd appreciate that, actually.

    Edit: if you're referring to the trailer I can just watch it myself

    I was referring to the trailer, but there's also a video that zooms in on it, but I have to rewatch all the switch-related videos in my history to find it.
