    This seems like satire making fun of ridiculous Nintendo gimmicks, but it's a real fucking thing. I do hope this means we get a succesor to Wii Sports, though I think it's definitely gonna be packaged with a Wii Fit succesor.

    I'm guessing a new firmware update would be required for this

    Nothing like huddling around the living room to watch a middle-aged bearded man play with a space-age thighmaster and hip thrust while he's lying on his back and sweating.

    Nintendo, you've done it again.

    The commercial sucks ass just as the last 9 years or so of Nintendo Commercials. And the product? Well... Nintendo just being Nintendo.

    This has to be some kind of long-term bet going on internally in Nintendo.

    "Hey boss, they actually bought the cardboard we tried to sell them last time, what do we do?"
    "How's about... *looks meaningfully at a pile of old bicycle tires* This!"
    "Now THAT is funny! I'll take these to the boys in marketing."

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    Seems like more Iwata-inspired stuff is coming to the Switch. I wonder what titles will be supported for this thing. Switch Fit (proposed name to the successor to Wii Fit U), perhaps?

    I gotta say, it looks really weird. Definitely not what I was expecting. Gradually, the Switch is starting to look more interesting... I'm still not buying it, though. Not until I see the changes I want.

    I'm all for accessories but I'm not too sure I get the appeal. I'll wait until Nintendo can capture my attention in a meaningful way.

    I don't know how to feel about this. It looks like something that will never be used by any serious gamer, which means we are probably gonna be seeing an influx of casual trash like back in the Wii days. I mean it might be fun to try out but I could never imagine playing a real game that way for any length of time.

    It is called Humor it was my 666 Post hence Nintendo being Evil which is why I added the CAPITALS and Dramatic Text.

    It basically something that makes you laugh if you find it funny the Chemi8cal sends a signal in your Brain for a response.

    So:
    The new gimmicky controller thingy has something to do with Satan and enslavement. Did I get that right?

    I don't see how any of this has anything to do with Satan.
