I could see Monster Hunter being a legit launch title. Its very popular in Japan probably more so then Zelda is over there at this point and Nintendo is going to want to pull out all the stops at launch. I'm not a fan of MH but I know its a big franchise.

I never understood what all the fuss was about either. I tried getting into it a couple of times myself and just lost interest.

Manashake5d ago

I understand the fuss, but can't bear the stressful gameplay.

_-EDMIX-_5d ago

I agree it's one of those franchises that I just don't myself really understand its appeal but Japan absolutely loves the Monster Hunter series.

I recommend Dragons Dogma!!!

Vegamyster5d ago

Every weapon has it's own unique move set that's based on skill/timing and the monster design/moveset is better then most other games, that's why i like it.

Same. There was nothing else to buy on wii u when it was released and i hated the game. I spent about 15 hours trying to like it and never did.

WeAreLegion5d ago

Same. The combat is waaaaaay too slow. I love the art style and design, but I need Soul Sacrifice's combat.

You better believe monster hunter and Zelda are going to sell this platform like hot cakes in Japan!

Oh... monster hunter and Zelda on a portable device in Japan? Annnnnnd sold out lol

Apocalypze5d ago

What if I never had hot cakes before?

I really hope Monster Hunter gets some real love. It is time for a reboot on a brand new engine. I got Monster Hunter back in 2006 for the PS2 and they are still using the same engine to this very day. It is time to shake things up.

Can't wait for the new Monster Hunter!

If the launch lineup is true (we all will find out in roughly 2 days) I will be getting:
1. Zelda
2. Skyrim (if mods are supported)
3. Mario Kart 8
4. Splatoon
5. Monster Hunter
6. The 3D Mario game
7. Dragon Quest 11 (or 10, whichever is the MMO)

Read somewhere skyrim will have mod option.
Prob DL onto cart or switch.
Myself looking forward to Mario karts. Big karts fan.

Mario Kart 8 was the best one since Double Dash in my opinion... One of the very few Wii U games I enjoyed. That list is in no particular order, those are just the games that came to my head. I plan on going hard for the Switch. I haven't been this excited for a Nintendo device since I first got my original Wii nearly 10 years ago (jesus it's been THAT long) I love the portable aspect of it, and while I can understand and deal with the lack of power compared to the XB1 and PS4, the library of Nintendo games will more than make up for it. Nintendo always kills it with 1st party stuff... And I'm hoping this console will not disappoint in that regard

@MetroidFREAK21

While Nintendo makes great 1st party games, the problem is they just dont release enough to make up the lack of support for everything else.

I heard 3D Mario was Q2

Doopy5d ago

Does someone have a link to switch launch lineup

MetroidFREAK215d ago

I'm going off rumors that I've seen. No official word on any of these

elda5d ago

The only interest so far is a new Mario game & Zelda.

sk8ofmnd5d ago

I wish i could disagree with you but thats not possible as of yet. Maybe things will change after their unveiling in 2 days.

3-4-55d ago

It does says NX placeholder and not Switch...not sure if that is relevant though.

sk8ofmnd5d ago

I have to give 1 thing to nintendo, they are better at not leaking things early like the other two. Their lips stay sealed until they themselves open them.

RosweeSon5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

They are very good but been a fair few leaks around this shame really as people just like to ruin the suspense but like those losers who used to write and probably still do somewhere "First" on all the comments boards. Yeah first to get punched in face ;) I guess it's all so that they can say well as I revealed back in.... yay medal in the post for you mystic meg 🙄

_-EDMIX-_5d ago

Not necessarily I would say all the companies have huge reveals that always get leaked depending on how huge they are.

I mean consider the same people that leaked PlayStation 4 and Xbox One also leaked pretty much 99% of what the switch was going to

Utalkin2me5d ago

Well if there was more hype and anticipation. You would probably getting more info.
