    When will Nintendo learn that motion controls don't work outside VR?

    I bet this will sell as well as Labo kits in my store. Hint: we've sold a grand total of 2 Labo kits since launch.

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    I was picturing more of a successor to Wii Fit U, not an adventure game. Then again, Iwata would have liked this. It combines entertainment to physical well-being, which was one of Iwata's goals. If I conceded to buy a Switch, this would be in my top ten to get.

    ...But I still refuse to buy. Haters gonna hate. Deal with it. :glare:

    I wonder if Nintendo will shoehorn this controller to mainstream games like they tried with Labo

    I'll most likely buy this game (retail obviously). all of my games are digital, but considering the use of the ring con and leg strap, I'm guessing it won't be digital or maybe it will if you want to buy that stuff separately. I could stand to lose a few more pounds. right now, I'm at the weight I was when I was really buff, exercising nearly every day, but I've lost a lot of muscle and fat after having quit drinking over a year ago.

    For the record, they do include calories intake and miles ran for every levels, plus time it took to complete. There's also quick mode for those who don't want to play the games.

    It's still a fitness game. You want to exercise while doing all those RPG busywork?

    Encouraging gamers to get off their asses is never a bad thing, but what Nintendo still hasn't learned is that not everything needs to be a completely original concept. I would have much preferred if they had just funded a DDR Zelda/Metroid/Kirby Mix instead, or even DDR Mario Mix 2. Any of those I would buy with a new dance pad on day one. This? Maybe I'll pick it up when it hits the bargain bin for $20 or less.

    Absolutely! For the kind of people who would buy a game to try and make exercise enjoyable, the trick is to make the best damned game that you can so that people forget that they're actually exercising. Haven't you ever gotten into a really good game, and realize when you finally turn it off that you've been playing for hours and didn't even realize it? Now imagine that, but throw a workout into the mix. Best case scenario, you've got people who usually lead mostly sedentary lifestyles playing multi-hour exercise sessions and loving every second of it, going for these exercise sessions every single day. Personally, I would love a past-time where I can fully fail to notice the exercise I'm getting in, and the eventual absolute ecstasy and sheer shock at suddenly realizing that my clothes are too big for me.

    Come to think of it, if you were to make an exercise game that was absolutely enjoyable as a game itself, it might be a good idea to make the usual fitness tracking screen an unlockable after so many hours of play. Imagine a lengthy game session, and suddenly getting a bit of a surprise when you find out that you've put in something like twenty hours of exercise over the span of a week without even noticing it. That would absolutely cement the game as a daily routine, since it's getting a lot of good done without feeling like work.

    Isn't it very possible to accidentally drop it and break your Joycons?

    Yea because people actually play tabletop mode over docked.

    Nintendo fanboys need to admit when nintendo fuck up.

    Theirs loads of points that they advertise its games which the poor thought design of the lite model fucks up.

    Every nintendo switch advert you see, claims multiplayer, fun, all that shit.

    Yup kiss that bye bye now.

    Ohh yea sorry its now ok to be forced to buy extra controllers when the joycons nintendo bragged how they could be used as individual controllers.
