With the release date forthcoming in a week it's own thread is deserved.

I've got one pre-ordered and I'm pretty excited for it. Huge Zelda fan, so I'm obviously most excited for that -- which is clearly the only "big" launch game.

Stoked! Got my Amazon pre-order coming in on Friday with Zelda.

Also, guess Edge Magazine gave BoTW a 10/10, which is rare for them: http://neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1347513

10/10 whoa.


Do we know if the console comes with one or two controllers?

I'm hoping 1-2 Switch and Snipperclips get great reviews. I think they should've packed one of them in, like Sports with the Wii. If they have a hit multiplayer game, everyone will show it to friends and word of mouth will spread. Instead, I fear most people will just be playing Zelda and their friends won't get to try it.

I'm really hoping for a hit. I've had nearly every Nintendo system and I want this to be a success.

It comes with the R and L joy-con. For some games, that will work for 2 player, like 1-2 Switch and Mario Kart. I ordered a pro controller so I'll have two "full" controllers, and I expect it to be better anyway.

Some links I could find:

Looks like Best Buy and GameStop are doing midnight launches.

(I have a insider friend who works at my local BB, and they got 30 systems last week for the midnight launch)

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/video-games/nintendo-switch/pcmcat1476977522176.c?id=pcmcat1476977522176

http://www.gamestop.com/gs/pages/events/NintendoSwitch-Zelda/?utm_source=linkshare&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=deeplink&cid=afl_10000087&affID=77777&sourceID=qd9XcyEa3J0-KiLFxk9dS3dICDuT.mL7OA

And Target is releasing systems when stores open on Friday.

Does this mean it'll be easier to get a Mini-Nes classic now? :roll:
