Nintendo Switch

At the risk of being further teased by @Left_Empty, I’m going to share the latest rumor:

Ooh, there’s something I might pay full price for!

A new Simogo title is not quite an instant buy, but it’s definitely something I’ll take another look at.

Harvestella seems like a nice Rune Factory, although the devil’s always in the implementation details.

Nier: Automata is a bit of a surprise, Persona trilogy less so, but nice to see. I might possibly play P3 Girls side, since I started but never finished that back in the day.

A pretty decent lineup, although there’s a bunch that are 2023.

Of those, the Persona games are the only ones I’m really interested in. I started 5 on PS3 and enjoyed it, but it’s the sort of game I could only end up making it all the way through handheld on the couch with the TV on.

So out of those games, only the Mario+Rabbids sequel is a Switch exclusive right?

Is Live A Live on other platforms?

Nope. That’s another one. And I think Dragon Quest Treasures might be another, but I’m not sure on that one. I bet Square might actually bring both of those to the PC I bet.

Super Famicom? :)

It looks like Blanc is also a Switch exclusive, if I’m reading that article correctly.

And another game looks like a Disney/Pixar version of Animal Crossing?? Sold!

Also everyone should own Portal and Portal 2.

Thanks for name checking Mario + Rabbids because now I have a release date! I’m not much of a sequels person but I’m super hyped for that.

There is a Direct dedicated to it tomorrow, FYI.

Ah cheers! I think after that short trailer showing off the new combat system I should be good until release now. Looks very fluid and intuitive.

I am interested in learning more about Railgrade but I think I rather play it on PC.

Both Spelunkys are on sale! Both very good and an acquired taste that might be for you even if you think it’s not. https://twitter.com/mossmouth/status/1542580969432940545?s=21&t=05JviZd57yWnfXp6dDOTWw

Oh man I love me some Spelunky! I guess I’m going to keep rebuying games just to have them on the Switch.

Spelunky games are the hardest games I’ve ever played. I would not recommend those to anyone but the most masochistic personalities.

Oh, come on!

… wait, I’m exceptionally masochistic, nevermind.

Finally, been waiting for a sale on the Switch. Thank you!
