    Cost: 299.99 USD
    When LOZ? LAUNCH TITLE
    Online Services: Will Cost Money like PSN and XBL
    Region Lock? NOPE
    Battery Life: 2-6 hours
    Smaller details: Capacative Touch, USB C Charger, amiibo support, screenshot button
    Joycons: They come in 3 colors and have "HD rumble", along with an IR camera. Gimmicky but also interesting tech. Cost $80. Pro Controller Costs 70.
    Games in order of announcement:

    I forgot
    Only thing that remotely interested me was Mario and Zelda and no region locking. Everything else was meh. 3/10 presentation Nintendo, 3/10.

    EDIT: Also, Dragon Quest X would be a port, not a new game ;)

    I went into this event expecting nothing and hoping for Nintendo to actually impress me.

    ...They didn't and the paid online and basically announcing 1 launch title has just killed it for me. I truely think this console will flop harder than the Wii-u. I hope it doesnt but nothing about that presentation filled me with hope of them re-entering the console wars.

    I can't believe there actually is a new Bomberman game in development, but I'm confused as to who is developing it. Is Konami really interested in making console games at this point, especially one that they've barely addressed since they acquired Hudson? It sure hasn't seemed like it up to this point.

    I don't get why some people are disappointed in the presentation. What the hell did you expect?

    Please add Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It was totally not in the presentation but is up on Nintendo's YouTube channel. Don't know why. April 28th Release.

    *would have

    Also, Zelda is enough and Mario Kart in April sells me as well. I have already preordered at two stores in my city and will preorder with Amazon once it goes on sale there.

    If I had Nintendo shares before the press conference, by the time 1,2 switch was shown, I'd have had no more Nintendo shares in my possession.

    Paid online was the only black mark for me. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming to the Switch, Sonic Mania as well! Also apparently the online service allows one to play a free NES and SNES game for one month, and for the SNES games, there will be online play, for which ones they didn't say.
