Have you pre-ordered a Nintendo Switch?

Are you going to pre-order a Nintendo Switch?

If not pre-ordering, are you planning or thinking

of getting a Nintendo Switch later on?

Which console did you order? Standard or Neon?

 

 

I'm interested to know what games and accessories others are getting or thinking of getting.

 

Let me know below

I think I'll grab one when xenoblade is out but no way will I be grabbing neon! It would look funny in the lounge.
How about you?

I've preordered the neon but am getting the seperate matching joycon set for either straight blue and blue or red and red colour schemes. I agree it's not very flattering as blue and red.

I've ordered a pro controller, official Nintendo screen protector and case and Zelda.

Preordered Neon Switch and Zelda. As soon as I saw the neons at the Switch presentation I was sold! Something about those colours is just too irresistible to me. I'll grab Snipperclips off the estore as well if that's a launch game. Will probably buy most/all future games digitally from the US store via Amazon. I'm holding off on a pro controller until checking out how the standard controller feels - I'd probably want to get another joycon set and grip to be 4-player ready, along with having a full second controller.

I am not planning to get the Switch. I am a little disappointed by my Wii U purchase. I got tons more use out of my PS3 purchase. At least I'll get to finally play Zelda U.

Did you try xenoblade chronicles X? I can't recommend that enough.

Yeah Snipperclips looks legit amazing. Definitely a game I'll play with my wife who is not much of a gamer.

 

I'm also going to get at some point but not day one, 1-2 Switch and Bomberman R. 

nzgameshop have 1-2 Switch for NZ $57 and I might get it from there just to have, and I do have people over often who I think will appreciate the mini games and type of fun on show.

 

Bomberman is an amazing series and I'm so keen on it, just not at full price. I'll wait until this comes down in price.

 

I'll also pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in April.

Definitely the most common combo at the moment among many people I know buying one.

A lot of people seemed let down by the Wii U and fair enough with what was initially promised.

 

I still feel it had some amazing games that shouldn't be missed and I honestly reckon in 10 or so years it will be much more appreciated for what it was and the games it had similar to how many now remember the GameCube.

 

just of face value, Switch should absolutely outshine the WiiU in all aspects. I hope they actually port the classic WiiU games to the Switch in the future for those that missed them.

Yes, I played it for 63 hours, but ultimately was bored. I loved the original Xenoblade on Wii, but was disappointed by X.The characters were weak, the story was weak, the hub music was horrendous. Also I didn't really like the skell combat.

Ahh that's a shame. I loved all the affinity missions for character stories and the combat was amazing imo.

The main story felt really unfinished though and I was hoping for a sequel. (Unless Mira is actually Mechonis and we are getting a sequel:) ) and the hub music was a wierd choice but I didn't think it too bad.

Exploring everything is what keeps me going back, and working on my ground gear. Once ya actually figure out ground combat (which even the manual which is a must read doesn't explain properly) it makes skills seem weak unless you have a lv60 maxed one.


If ya don't enjoy that though I got nothing else lol.
I'm playing the first chronicles now but I don't find it as fun. Still great though.

My order is still just Zelda and Neon Switch. Will definitely grab snipperclips when it's available, and plan on eventually picking up some matching neon joy cons and grip, maybe a pro controller from Amazon since prices work out a bit cheaper.

My pre-order is a standard Switch, Zelda and a Pro Controller.

 

I have Binding of Isaac pre-ordered from Amazon as well but sounds like that isn't coming at launch anymore (few weeks after) /cry.

 

Really excited for it all! :D

I wonder if you will actually be able to use them blue blue and red red because they are physically different left and right. Even different buttons.
You may still have to use blue red.
