    Prime 3, as Dread was originally planned for the DS before being cancelled a couple times.

    Other highlights: Super Monkey Ball collection remaster and a new Crus'n game!

    Brain fart..Scarlett Nexus is Bandai Nam not Capcom so hopefully they show something even though it’s really close to release.

    Also, I was surprised to see Guardians get announced for the Switch- but apparently its a cloud version, which makes sense.

    No Switch Pro, huh? I was looking forward to trying to decide whether to get one and the decision being made for me when I can't find anything in stock for a year.

    They did specify this would be Switch software only (well, Zelda G&W not withstanding).

    But BOTW2 being confirmed for 2022 pretty much solidified there not being a Switch Pro this year.

    Patrick Klepek was on Nextlander's stream and said everything he had heard suggested it's more like a New Nintendo 3DS vs 3DS upgrade than anything terribly drastic. That's maybe the only assessment I've heard of the alleged thing that I trust at this point.

    Starting to wonder if this will be a Twilight Princess situation where they just actually ending end up releasing their next console and BOTW2 comes out on both Switch and the new one.

    Oh it’ll definitely run on both systems. Nintendo would be suicidal to not make it compatible with current Switch software. There’ll just be some added power behind stuff.

    I just want any new console to be on par with XB and PS. I really miss the Game Cube days.

    I think the days of Nintendo consoles having competitive hardware specs are over. For better or worse, the Wii taught them that it isn't necessary to chase Microsoft and Sony. The Switch just confirmed it.

    And I'm fine with that as long as they make fun games to play. Metroid Dread probably could have been made for the 3DS, but it looks on the Switch and I'll definitely be buying it and BOTW2 of course.

    Switch Pro? Metroid Prime 4? They're in an unmarked grave with Bayonetta 2.

    I'm so glad that Switch Pro wasn't announced.

    So that I could say "I told you so" to everyone that was SURE it was going to be there.

    (I mean, no offense to you, I'm just doing a bit right now)

    Offense taken. You owe me a Switch Pro. Buy it from a scalper for 6,000 USD!

    lol Imagine if Nintendo released what is essentially a new console in the midst of the pandemic; we're barely out of it and some people think they'll unveil and release it in 2021?

    I mean, I'm not trying to rag on anyone that's under that impression, but I just find it... Well, pretty unlikely.

    Hasn't stopped GPU manufacturers from announcing new cards.

    No doubt most likely. Would sure love a fellow hitter with the unique controller greatness they bring now though.

    Is this Bandai stream bugging out or is just mine?

    Keeps jumping around bits it seems like.

    Never played any of the Metroid titles before, but I absolutely love the look of Metroid: Dread. Very Alien: Isolation inspired, in a sense, with the unkillable enemies that have to be avoided.

    If Nintendo stopped being dumb and released a complete Metroid collection, along the lines of what Halo: The Master Chief Collection is for the Halo franchise, I'd probably go out and actually get a Switch.

    Frankly, I'm content enough as it is with my Steam library, but tbh, I think the Switch has enough reasons to get it, though if I had to choose between, say, a new "Switch Pro" (or whatever it'll be called) or a PS5, I'd get a PS5.

    I ll have to look up Bandai tomorrow. I only saw one game and then my stream got all wacky I think and placed me on something else with just a lot of talking heads. Unless they only had one game for their bit?
