Nintendo Switch

She's one of the Journo's that leaked a lot of the Switch stuff previously in the year, so her info is usually reliable.

Every time I see this mentioned or read this thread, the Will Smith song Switch plays in my head. I assume this will carry on for the entire time the Switch is a thing.

Glad I'm not the only one this happens to. It's always the 'Hey-ey-ey' at the start of the chorus it kicks off with too.

You two have both outed yourselves as Will Smith fans 

 

Hey-ey-ey (Hey-ey-ey) 

 

it was the last good Will Smith song. It's no Miami or Gettin Jiggy Wit It (or any of the songs from Willenium for that matter) but still a solid Smith production.

Hey all, it’s time for yet more Nintendo Switch news from places other than official sources.

 

Today’s report, backed up by one previously used source and one new source who I have vetted thoroughly, is that UK specialist gaming retail chain GAME has been informed of the Nintendo Switch’s wholesale price to retailers, and is planning on selling their basic SKU (stock keeping unit) of the system in stores for £199.99.

 

It is important to note this is not a Nintendo set RRP (recommended retail price), as Nintendo do not set UK RRP prices for consoles. However, it is safe to assume this gives us a solid indication of the price the system will sell at nationwide.

 

We have also learned that a separate SKU featuring more internal storage and a packed in game is planned to sell at £249.99. We have heard rumours as to what this pack in game is, but we currently have only one source on this information so we are unwilling to talk about that pack in title at this time.

Both our sources have told us that additional Switch Pro Controllers are expected to sell at launch for £39.99 at GAME.

 

Lastly, we have been told that Nintendo is planning for the Switch to be close to direct conversion price comparable across regions, which we have been told is tied into their push for the system to be region free. This would in theory put the USA price of the system at approximately $249.99 and $299.99 (This is based off conversions, not any insider information).

 

So, how do these prices sound to you? In the UK this would put the Switch firmly in line with the entry level prices for the Xbox One and PS4 which seems wise if their device is going to be in any way less powerful than the current systems on the market. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

I would certainly be happy enough to pay that. Im at the point where the lower the better is what Im thinking as Im almost certainly going to be paying the Nintendo tax and so the smaller it is the happier I will be.

Yeah, given that it's going to have limitations, if they can get it to the point where "why the fuck not?" which I think £250 is, then this will sell (£199 definitely is). 

 

At 200 quid you could pretty much just decide to buy one on pay day. Granted a lack of games means you're looking at another 100 on top, but yeah, I'm in

Yeah I concur, £199 is a decent price, puts it at only £20 more than the N3DS I believe, will almost definitely go for the pack-in bundle though, did that for my Wii U with Zombi U at launch so will do the same again here, will be even better if they chuck in a Switch Pro controller into the bundle!

Yeah seems like it's probably a fake, Eurogamer guy said it was a dummy unit then deleted the tweet, then later said it was a fake.

 

So yeah, sorry chaps, move along, nothing to see here... :)

Hey folks, Laura here again with another report on the leaky boat which is the Nintendo Switch.

 

We have learned from two separate sources, one of whom is the Nintendo source who informed us of Switch Reveal Trailer info before Nintendo announced it, some early info regarding Nintendo’s March software releases for Switch and Wii U in March.

 

Following recent reports that Zelda: Breath of the Wild would miss the Switch’s March launch, we have not only heard the same information independently, but also that the Wii U version is not going to hit the previously expected launch date either. We have heard that, even though the game will not launch until several months into the Switch’s lifespan, Nintendo still plans to release a Wii U version of the game.

 

In Switch-specific news, we have been told that the Mario game shown in the Switch reveal trailer is planned as Switch release day title in all territories. One source has told us a potential name, but we are currently unable to find any web domains or trademark registrations to back up the name suggestion and so we are choosing not to talk about that at this time.

 

The title will apparently feature a 3D open world hub from which different worlds can be selected, with multiple objectives to complete in each, much like Mario 64 or Mario Galaxy. This may seem obvious, but we share this information to specify that this will not be a Super Mario 3D World-style game where the action is in 3D, but each stage is a linear path designed to be completed a single time.

 

The multiplayer teased in the trailer will be a co-op version of the main game, with both players able to work together toward objectives, but with a form of tether to keep the players from going too far from each other. Player two’s gameplay will not hold player one back from progress, but player two can be the one to complete an objective and be shown as receiving the level end reward. A screen will then show how much of the progress toward that success was down to each player, like how many red coins each player collected in a red coin stage.

 

This Mario title has a demo in development ready for press to play in January 2017.

 

We have also heard that the current plan is for the more expensive Switch SKU (stock keeping unit) to come bundled with a new version of Splatoon. A big part of the push for this will be a 1 vs 1 mode where two players on separate Switches can fight over a map, switching their weapon of choice at will mid-game. Nintendo expects the short match nature of Splatoon to translate well to handheld multiplayer, in that players need only commit a few minutes to a full multiplayer match.

 

There are also plans to add additional single player content to the game, and for the Switch version of the game to have a similar free content output schedule to the one the Wii U version of the game enjoyed.

 

Also, that Skyrim port Bethesda refuse to confirm is real is totally happening. We’ve heard it’s planned to be a launch day release for the system, to mirror the recent remastered version of the game, and to allow mods at some time post-launch. Mod support for Skyrim will not be there from day one, and much like the PS4 will be limited to mods made using existing in-game assets.

 

So, there’s what we’ve heard about the Switch and Wii U March software lineups so far. How does this leave you feeling about picking the system up at launch?

 

 

Bit disappointing for me, thought Splatoon was incredibly overrated so to potentially have that as the pack-in game is underwhelming, hope the Mario game is better than 3D world as well and more Mario Galaxy. No word on a new Luigi's Mansion either :(
