    I'll either be really disappointed or mildly surprised, unless Reggie pulls Animal Crossing out of his jocks and gives it to us.

    The only thing that would be worse than that, is Amiibo Festival 2. I'd rather not think about either one of those.

    Wonder if they have any ports lined up for the Switch. Love to see a Xenoblade Chronicles X port.

    Luigis Mansion 3... why not? That's ok, but not a main course... waiting for whatever comes after the 3DS leftovers.
