That looks quite cool, until you scale it to the size of the joycons and its actually pretty small, and you'd have to know the other person quite well to go 2 player.

Jesus I just clicked on the Nintendo Treehouse Live day 2 stream to see what’s up and they are STILL talking about Smash Bros.

Oh my god Nintendo you really fuked up this year :lol:

EDIT: Although they still have 38,000 people watching so maybe this is perfect marketing what do I know

There are loads of mad idiots that love Smash.

It has always been something of a B-tier Nintendo game to me but the amount a lot of people lose their minds over it says otherwise.

Original arcade Donkey Kong comes to Nintendo Switch in first-ever re-release


The arcade version of Donkey Kong is a pretty big deal in retro gaming circles, as seen in the classic documentary King of Kong. Until today, though, it was impossible to legally acquire or sell an arcade-perfect version of the game without tracking down an actual arcade cabinet, reportedly due to complex legal issues over authorship of the code. Now those issues appear to have been resolved: Nintendo just put out Donkey Kong on the Switch for $7.99 through its Arcade Archives series.

This Donkey Kong release actually contains three versions of the game: the Japanese original, the more common updated Japanese version with bug fixes, and the international version. You can rotate the Switch 90 degrees to play with a vertical screen layout, mirroring the arcade cabinet.

Donkey Kong’s cut-down NES version has been released for various platforms, of course, and Rare went as far as to rebuild the arcade version from entirely new code so that it could be included in Donkey Kong 64 without legal trouble. But you weren’t really playing the original Donkey Kong — the game that introduced Mario to the world — and now you can.

Nintendo also announced that it’ll be releasing an Arcade Archives version of the long-lost Sky Skipper next month. Sky Skipper never saw a formal arcade release beyond some scattered location testing in 1981, and Nintendo had to extract the ROM from the only known original arcade cabinet still in existence.

Remember how the Switch was first called the NX?

How weird is that now

I saw footage of that mech game for like the briefest of minutes but the impression I got was it was a more score attack like and slower version of Zone of the Enders.

I watched it for like 60seconds so maybe there’s layers and layers I don’t know about but that is what it looks like.

Who's going to pick up Mario Tennis this Friday? I wasn't entirely convinced by the demo and its special shots but I'll still give this a try and I think it'd be cool if we could play some doubles with 4 people from here.

Not for me. I think Blakey is getting it, though.

I was going to, but the demo put me off a bit. Tennis isn't really that exciting, is it :) I mean not like karting or smashing.
Is it on the Switch?
