It’s super fun. The biggest problem with the Switch right now is there are actually too many awesome games to play! I had to put down Splatoon 2 to play Mario+Rabbids and before that I put down ARMS to play Splatoon 2!
The Direct was great. It covers a rather short timeframe so expect another in December to lay out the first half of 2018 a little better. I think that was how they did it before Iwata passed away. It seems like they’re back to that now.
I went to the Nintendo YouTube channel and what’s really cool is with this Direct and all the Indie stuff from less than a month ago, there are just piles of things coming to this system that are either exclusive and cool or going to be portable for the first time, making them a great way to play if you missed them before. Like, who wouldn’t want to play DOOM on the go, especially if you haven’t played it at all yet?! Skyrim portable is kind of insane when you think about where that game has been up to now. Six years old. Still looks great. Plays well. We can already take it anywhere. Wow.
I downloaded the Octopath Traveler demo and hope to try that this weekend.
Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 though… just… wow. SMO looks to take Mario to places that Breath of the Wild took the Zelda series. It’s mind boggling that they’re releasing both in the same year. There’s so much stuff it’s like the Fire Emblem Warriors game is almost lost in the jumble! I pre-ordered XC2 Special Edition. That 220 page art book was too cool to skip.
