Nintendo is preparing an announcement related to Switch for today, January 17 at 10 pm UK time. The advertisement can be found on the company's pages from other regions, but all are focused on the same message and do not indicate more clues.
before you get yourself hyped, many insiders are reporting similar results about a game which will probably require an accessory to play, and that this game "is not the Animal Crossing or Smash Bros you may be expecting" i am just saying to maybe lower your expectations, i will say that most of the insiders are still in the dark as well it seems, and only have some super vague hints, so this could still be something big.
it's definitely not a game, more like an app or something. Possibly something interactive with amiibos or something.
i believe it's an accessory that is not with the switch, maybe some add on to one of the joy cons i think.
I also read that this new interactive experience was "geared towards kids or people who are kids at heart". I'm not sure this will be anything mind-blowing.
It's either mobile-related, accessory-to-a-third-party-gam e-related, or an announcement for a way of playing 3DS games on Switch. Just my two Rupees.
"3DS games on Switch" God I hope so.
There is no way Nintendo is going to combine 3DS and Switch if both are selling well. Nintendo is all about maximizing revenue and right now both are providing excellent revenue sources for them.
Normally, I would COMPLETELY AGREE with your sentiment. However. I think a lot of people have forgotten that there is actually PRECEDENT for this sort of move. Do you recall a little device called the "Super Game Boy"? Because I sure do. I spent literal years playing my GB and GBC games on my SNES, through that device, whenever I was at home. And it came out despite the SNES and game boy both being super successful. All I'm saying is that we shouldn't count the possibility out.
Interesting. VR perhaps? Nintendo have some patents for the Switch sliding into a head mounted accesory after all.
It's more likely to be them bringing back the Heart Rate Monitor accessory than VR.
Anything is possible. Anyway, not long left now. We'll find out soon :)
5PM EST :)
Can we get some online details please. Been super into my Switch and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 lately
Plug & Play 3DS adapter perhaps ? Play physical 3DS games on the Switch ?
"specially crafted for kids" hmmmm
New interactive experience. Stars(trophies) and online chat without a phone¡!¡!¡!
There’s no risk of any disappointment for me, as I’m expecting something pretty shit to be honest.
Pretty spot on ;)
if its not a game or some kind of backward compatibility than no thanks the console is too weak 4 anything else
A twist to VR mode is my guess
You weren't far off I guess
It's crazy, it's cardboard accessories for the switch 😶
