    It's feels a bit like a Wii reboot.

    Yes! Many people were speculating a less-then-HD display, but we got 720p! Yeeee. Also, all the features of the JoyCon sound fucktastic! Overall, this looks much better executed then the Wii U!

    But battery life of 2.5 - 6 hours...? That's a very weird range.

    2 confirmed games for launch, and no idea on the Euro price yet...... I was excited for the switch, but that kinda hurts the hype.
