I wonder if those N64 Controllers will work with anything under bluetooth or if its strictly only meant for use with the Switch. If they can be used on more devices, then I might be tempted to jump on it.

Also, Nice to see Bayonetta 3 finally out there now!
The snes controllers work on a computer with emulators.

This direct was really cool! 3D Kirby, finally! And Bayonetta 3, holy shit I've been waiting for a while... I dunno how exactly I feel about the trailer, but there are a lot of questions that it raises and holy shit Bayo 3 actually exists I'm so happy

The N64 and Genesis stuff was neat. Sucks that it's behind another paywall, though. Monkey's paw, I guess. Actraiser was also neat to see. The movie related stuff was hilarious and didn't feel real.

Overall, I thought it was a pretty solid Direct, though I'm biased because Kirb and Bayo.

It's become quite the in thing to say on teh interwebs, but my God I really did think we were getting The Last of Us: Nintendo Edition at the beginning of that Kirby trailer. Highlight of the show for me though!
Actraiser remake, that's nice... Splatoon 3, well it looked fun? Never touched a Splatoon yet so clueless about that one.
Shigsy on stage!! 'Wow', I thought, 'Dis gonna be gud'! - (no... no it fukkin wasn't...)
And that was about it really!

The bad news about the N64/GEN controllers is that they're $50.
The good news is that you won't have to pay that price because they'll always be out-of-stock.

Is it just me or pretty much all the rumors regarding the Switch in recent times has not come to fruition, its almost like Nintendo is doing it on purpose now. talk about the Switch Pro, now no mention of Game Boy coming to Switch online. Perhaps they are planning to sell some GB games individually before adding the GB to Switch online.

No gameboy games coming to the switch, as the "Gameboy classic" will be announced soon.

A portable preloaded with the zelda oracles series and the three Mario lands.

As I said in Temp Mode, the only game that excited me was Kirby; the rest of it was a waste of time.
Oh, and hopefully the last SSBU fighter isn't someone lame; that'd be a terrible adieu to the game.

Not bad, N64 games are much more interesting than Game Boy games (even more so with RARE games in the middle) and Mega Drive games were a great surprise.

But I really hope Nintendo will start giving away games to subscribers like PS Plus and Xbox Live give away even if it's not every month.
