This looks good. The main controller looks a little chubby, but all-in-all I'm amped for this.

Correct. And I think it should remain in a dedicated thread. PC, Xbox, Sony and Nintendo, along with mobile games in one thread is pretty ridiculous.

I kinda wish Nintendo would make a console without a gimmick. Just make a nice console that can play some cool games, that's all I want.

To be honest, I'm a bit intrigued about this... I wonder if they have lost their touch.

You can also take the controller parts off the tablet, pop the stand on the back, and play with the controller from afar, using the tablet as a screen, which is nice.

As I said in the video game thread, although not a launch game, GameFreak did confirm a while back they will eventually move the main console Pokemon Games to the Switch. I assume it will be when they move to Generation 8, which is likely 4-5 years from now. This is just logical, as most people won't have a Switch at launch, so they're going to make games for the console with the more players, which would be the 3DS at this time. 4 years down the line, they'll have a good chunk of Switch users, and a new generation is lines for a graphics upgrade.

The whole "it doubles as a portable console" thing. Which I don't really mind as far as gimmicks are concerned. It seems like a neat idea in theory.

They never lost anything.

That isn't a gimmick.
All it is is a merged console.
No longer will development be split between two groups.
Everyone will be making games for the same console.

Gamefreak said that the sequel/3rd Sun/Moon game will be on the NX, now known as Switch.

Any game that can be played on the 3DS or the WiiU will now be either stationary or portable.

This means no more separate Mario Kart games, no more separate Smash games. It is all one game!

That means better turn around for all games too.

No more years long droughts for separate systems.

...that makes no sense? You're intrigued, but you wonder if they lost their touch? O_o

I see a lot of my PS/Xbox fanboy friends saying they're ditching their consoles for the switch when it comes out.

They said the games will eventually be on it, not that the sequel/third game will be.

I sincerely doubt they'll make a main game pokemon game on the switch in the next year or two. That'd be risking a ton of money on a gamble. There's a reason gen 5 was released on the DS and gen 7 on the 3DS. They wait until enough customers have bought the new console.

It's basic economics. Do you make a game for a console only a million people have and hope it draws in enough people that they're willing to spend $399 on said console to play it, or make it for a console 5 million people have? (made up numbers, obviously, just to make a point) And a third version would not be enough draw to get people to buy a Switch JUST for Pokemon.

I'm rather intrigued by the Switch so far, though it'll likely be a while before I ever get one. If the Switch will indeed be the next one that'll cover both home and portable, then I'm there.

As far as names go, I'm a little happy that they've finally dropped the Wii name, if just to get away from the slightly negative stigma it garnered. Seeing all third party support is nice too.
