Having not been a part of these forums for too long – is there much interest in Nintendo around here?

 

I’ve had a long break from Nintendo - predominantly gaming on Playstation since the PS3 - but am thinking that the release of the Switch could be the time to come back to the big N.

 

I'm pretty hyped about the Switch presentation tomorrow and wondered if anyone else will be watching.

Only recently jumped on the Nintendo bandwagon, been ps3 / ps4 for most of my days but recently got a 3ds which I can't put down. Playing Zelda Ocarina of time , Mario 3d and Monster Hunter Generations at the moment and would love a big screen version (knowing there are existing console versions anyways but hanging out to see the newer offerings)

Looking forward to this tomorrow but mainly because of monolith soft. Can't wait to see what they do. Only reason I have the Wii u is because of xenoblade. Was well worth the $400 price.

That's high praise - I haven't played a xenoblade so that may be another one to put on the radar. I'm just really keen to get back into some Zelda, Mario, Mario Kart etc, as I'm now missing that Nintendo magic I grew up with.

And hey Crow/Cheradeninez, fancy seeing you here! A Switch version of Destiny and it'll be like old times!

Haha hell yeah. Hope you will be joining us for Destiny 2 later in the year.

Re: Xenoblade Chronicles I have it on 3ds and it's amazing, the Wii u version looks dope as and I've had to restrain myself from purchasing it as AdamC did.

I'll be working at 5pm so won't be able to watch live, but I'm pretty excited to see what Nintendo are doing with the Switch.

Whilst I play predominantly on Xbox One, I still also use my 3DS and WiiU weekly for games like Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem and Mario Kart. There's always different experiences to be had with Nintendo.

I wonder what the launch price will be? I'll probably start saving money now and look out for deals/Bundles at Christmas this year. Depends on the launch titles too.

I'd love to see a huge proper console version of Animal Crossing!

While Monolith Soft's new game might be too early in development to show off right now, there's a chance if the GameCube VC thing turns out to be real we might get both Baten Kaitos games at some point! :thumbsup:

 

Origins (the second one) in particular is one of my most fav games from that gen. Dat OST, sooo good!

Silly me, forgetting how amazing Monolith Soft are... of course their new game is ready to show off lol.

 

As someone who greatly preferred Xenoblade to X, very happy for a (possibly?) true Xenoblade 2! :D

 

Mario looks awesome, that new Square Enix retro Bravely Default looking game looks awesome, and Zelda, HOLY sh*t, I can't even put into words my excitement, and not long to wait. :D

Well I watched it and I'm not hyped yet.

Fire Emblem is probably the one franchise there that I'd be excited for but seeing that Team Ninja have their hands on it, it's not going to be an actual Fire Emblem game. It'll be a Hyrule Warriors re-skin. Or maybe a Dead or Alive styled fighting game :(

However, if the Nintendo Treehouse presentation tomorrow announces a new Animal Crossing game then I'll jump on the hype train!

ahh I was hoping to find out more about Planet Mira! Looks like I really do need to play chronicles now! lol.

Was that just the basic Skyrim, not remastered they had?

Breath of the WIld looks really good but I still havent got very far in Ocarina of time.

Fire Emblem had me hyped untill I read Pigeons post.... I thought it was going to be a main game like awakening.

$300 US translates to $550 NZ acording to EB Games.... I was expecting about $500

Looks good but nothing says Buy me at launch to me. I didnt see a release date on Xenoblade so thats probably why.

I thought that mario trailer looked terrible. The city stage graphics looked 2004/university project bad. I like the hat jumping mechanic, but man...it all looked really big and really empty.
