IT'S. ABOUT. TIME. I was continually amazed it never made it to the Wii U, as the dual screen set up would have been perfect for inventory/tool management. I don't have a 3DS, so I never got into New Leaf, so I can't wait for this to drop.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the come up with for the new one. Probably nothing earth-shattering, but then New Leaf was more of a refinement of previous versions than something entirely new anyway.
Wait, now I HAVE TO enroll in Nintendo's online service if I want to play AC with my AC friends? Is that their evil plan? Is that their sneaky way to get me to give them even more of my money? Don't they have enough of my money already?!?
Tricia's Switch Friend Code:
I will accept anybody who reads this* and sends a friend request. I'm laying the groundwork down now, because I am betting that I am going to need to exchange fruits latter. And you might have cat villagers I want to steal. And pretty Exotic furniture and Asian themed stuff in your Nook's store.
Nine more will come out in the subsequent months. Solomon’s Key, NES Open Tournament Golf, Super Dodge Ball arrive in October, followed by Metroid, Mighty Bomb Jack, and TwinBee, a vertical-scrolling shoot ‘em up never previously released in North America, coming in November. Finally, Wario’s Woods, Ninja Gaiden, and Adventures of Lolo close out the year in December.

I logged into Mika's account to send you a friend request but you beat me to it.
I should mention that she has never held the Switch in her hands, much less played anything. For her, the Switch is an excuse to hog the TV since I don't need it since I can play the Switch anywhere. But this will surely change when Animal Crossing comes out. That and Untitled Goose Game.
Gonna keep replying to myself because the rules don't matter anymoooooooooooooore
If you want more info on Untitled Goose Game find it at goose dot game
Sega Genesis Classics is coming to Switch:

Solomon's Key, NES Open Tournament Golf, and Super Dodge Ball got added to the Nintendo Switch Online NES library, along with an easier version of The Legend of Zelda where you start with a pile of cash and items.
EDIT: It's a save file within the existing Zelda game, not a whole new game
There's a grassroots movement (originated by the FF7 board, I believe) to not vote for Sephiroth. Probably nothing substantial will come of it (I have Sephiroth winning), but something to keep in mind for any pools.
