    I am literally only interested in the fact that this appears to give some sort of bow and arrow function. I can roll around on the floor all by myself Nintendo, thanks though!

    The most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.
    That people on the video just used that shit because they are payed for it.
    No one will ever use it on the real life.

    This is going to be useless when nintendo decided to make its new model a handheld only, no detachable controllers.

    And will eventually be the main system due to the poor quality of the normal model, thats if nintendo continue its production and not use lite as a means to stop current exploits.

    Since people buy crystal apples in Kirby Clash (real money), Im sure this will sell like hotcakes.

    Seriously I wish Nintendo would move on from the Wii and let go of all the Gimmicks, It seems they still are clueless on the fact the name "WiiU" was a large part of it's failure. People are sick of the pointless disposable peripherals, let's focus on Gaming!

    Yyyyeeeeaaaahhh....of course it wouldn't be nintendo if their marketing made any sense. My guess is their agenda looks a bit like this:

    10/9: (properly) announce a peripheral device (a rubber band) that requires 2 joycons

    20/9: release a switch version without detachable joycons

    30/9: planned emergency meeting on why the switch lite doesn't sell

    GG, nintendo. GG. :rolleyes:

    If that's to bring Wii sports to the Switch I find this lame. The joy cons are more than enough to do that.

    I'm certain nobody is surprised that the Switch is getting peripherals like this. The Switch is another Wii but with relatively modern specs.

    So you want 3-4 Switch?
    The team who makes this random shit is the one who made Labo, 1-2 Switch, Miitopia, Nintendo Badge Arcade.
    This year Nintendo is also releasing 2 new IPs: Astral Chain and Daemon x Machina.

    Lol !
    They are out of cardboards already ?

    In fact, their business model is interesting, it is sheer deflationist capitalism: do more, with lesser and lesser.

    Btw this is a new IP releasing in December. It's for casual players and it's made from a dev team focused on casual titles so Nintendo isn't wasting any money even if it bombs.
