Z can we have a Switch icon and/or a Nintendo icon plz/thx


Launch date: March 3, 2017 in Japan, US, Canada, major European countries, and Hong Kong

Suggested retail price $299.99 "in North America" so probably more in Canada (EDIT: $399.99 in Canada)

Online services:
- online gaming, duh
- interacts with your smart device so you can use that to set up gaming with friends, get notifications, etc.
- free trial after launch; becoming a paid service in the fall

No region locking on Switch software (omg)

now we SWITCH lololol to some other guy; take a drink every time they "switch" to someone else and you'd be dead

Switch has elements of all past Nintendo systems: analog controllers, touch screen, portability, motion controls, etc.

Now we watch a video that shows all the modes, all the stuff from that first video:
TV Mode
- play games on TV
Tabletop mode
- stand the system up with its kickstand and use the Joycons (the little detachable controller things)
Handheld mode
- attach the Joycons to the system and take it anywhere, or pass a Joycon to a friend for multiplayer gaming

Battery life:
- 2.5 to 6.5 hours, varying by game
- you can play while charging the system
- AC adapter and USB-certified batteries available

Connect up to 8 systems for wireless multiplayer

More Joycon stuff:
- Joycons have an NFC reader built in for amiibo stuff
- The Joycons also have a capture button for taking screenshots and, eventually, video
- Joycons have independent motion controls so you can do two-handed motion controls
- The Joycons are full-featured controllers
- They have Wii Remote-style wrist straps
- You can get them in Neon Red and Neon Blue or in gray
- The right Joycon has a motion IR camera for "unique new control styles"
- The Joycon can convey the feeling of ice cubes colliding a cup. "HD Rumble" - new advance tactile feedback

New games:
- Cowboys staring each other down. This better be Wild Gunman HD
- wtf am i watching here
- okay it's called 1-2-Switch and it's some kind of quick-draw game and mayyyyyyyybe it's not the first game I'd lead off a system launch with
- you don't look at a screen, you look into the eyes of your opponent
- this is to be fun for parties and an icebreaker for all kinds of communication
- uhhhhhhhh
- this is a launch title
- this will be in the discount bin by May

Okay another game:
- possibly a fighting game between a schoolgirl and a businessman, both with long springy arms and boxing gloves
- I assumed I was wrong but no that's where we're at right now
- So far this looks like Wii Sports Boxing meets Ready 2 Rumble and I mean that in a positive way
- it is called ARMS
- this looks kinda fun actually
- two of the characters are Spring Man and Ribbon Girl
- "Oh. Spring Man won." this translator is not convincing me of his enthusiasm
- coming this spring (notably not mentioned as a launch title)
- oh shit I just noticed coming this SPRING boioioioioing

- New weapons, new stages, and guns that let you rocket into the sky
- Summer 2017

- he's in a human city? looks neat
- now in a more cartoony environment
- he has a hat-throwing attack
- and is riding a gargoyle-loking thing? why not i guess
- what the fuck his hat is ALIVE?!
- "a large Mario sandbox world"
- Mario has jumped out of the Mushroom Kingdom
- so is this a NEW hat or was his hat always alive
- coming Holiday 2017

I can't help but notice I've seen one launch title and it looks dumb af

- looks neat, don't care
- yeah yeah clouds and a spike hair MFer with a big sword
- it is XENOBLADE 2

- there are five jewels in a shield thing
- and we're back to the sword
- okay now I think the dude said that was a brief clip of FIRE EMBLEM WARRIORS

80 games in development
- Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI coming to Japan
- Dragon Quest Heroes I & II also coming
- remember when you got Dragon Warrior for free if you subscribed to Nintendo Power? that was awesome
- teaser for Project Octopath Traveler by Square Enix
- trailer for a new game in the Shin Megami Tensei series
- a guy from Sega is excited to make games.
- Skyrim coming to Switch
- Suda51 yelled and got no reaction. "That didn't go well." Unsure if the translator was translating or editorializing
- they keep switching between translators and this one is having a particularly rough day
- Suda51 is making a game with Travis Touchdown "heavily influenced by pro wrestling"
- FIFA is coming, maybe other EA games? I kinda zoned out.
- They're showing clips of games, I saw a Lego dude and an NBA 2K18 logo and brief clips of like Mario Kart and stuff and some older games

Switch configurations:
- System has the console, left and right Joycons w/straps, Joycon grip, Switch dock, HDMI cable, and AC adapter
- One model has grey Joycons, one has red and blue ugly Joycons, but are otherwise the same
- Pro controller available separately

- Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild confirmed as a launch title

I've been firmly in the XBox corner for the current round, but for the upcoming stuff I've still yet to see something that completely floors me (some of the PS3 stuff looks nice, but that doesn't mean much to me - plus it may not be representative of the...
