    Nothing particularly new, but the port line-up is actually pretty great, so I'm not disappointed. Having Catherine on Switch makes me all the more optimistic for proper Persona on Ninty's handheld, for that matter.

    Remember the rumours in the past week or 2 about BotW2 details? I was hoping for that...

    It's like you're about to sneeze, then the sneeze goes away. That's how I feel.

    burnout paradise is probably one of the twitchiest racing games i've ever played, if the joycons get in the way of this one i won't be having a very good time

    and if it's not at 60fps then holy fuck someone did something wrong, since it ran at 60 on every system it's been ported to

    Maybe I'm getting old, there is not that much here that really grabs my interest. Panzer Dragoon: Remake, yes please!
    Maybe Trials of Mana, although the demo made me prefer the good old SFC version. And Bioshock? (Never played it, maybe now is the time). Bravely Default 2 is a time eater that I'll probably never finish. King's Bounty 2 could be worth it.

    Where's my Advance Wars? I miss that series so much...

    Shinsekai: Into the Depths and Catherine: Full Body look interesting.

    A shame that there's no flashy movie to introduce the new ARMs fighter announcement.

    I'm the only who hates the new graphics of the Xenoblade Remake? I mean they use the same anime ones from the XBC2 and that made the game feels more childish comparing to the first game. I hope in the future the modders repair this.
