GoNintendo Thought - Last week's video content from GoNintendo

Lots of videos to share with you guys this round-up. Let's see if you caught them all last week. I mean, it was a pretty busy week for Nintendo fans, wouldn't you say?! See you in a few, short hours.

Believe it or not, we've got 4 videos for you from the last 7 days. Yes, 4 videos for you to attach your eyeballs to! Have you seen them all? Check out the roundup below to see!

First up, we have my parents reaction to the Nintendo Switch trailer. I didn't tell them a thing about the trailer, nor did I answer their initial questions. I wanted to see how well the trailer did with explaining what the Switch was. See how it went below.

Next up, I did a silly social media video for the Switch. I've seen a lot of videos in this style over the last few months, so I thought I'd give it a go.

Next, I did a really strange video for the Switch. It's a very niche joke, so don't be surprised if it makes no sense to you. I asked you guys on Twitter if I should run with a stupid idea I had, and most of you said yes. This is the result!

Finally, we have the 584th episode of the GoNintendo Podcast. It's jam-packed full of Switch news and discussion from all different angles. Don't worry, the usual humor and stupidity is in there as well. Hope you enjoy this super-sized show!

GoNintendo Video - The internet's reaction to the Nintendo Switch

If you like the video, we'd love to have you share/thumbs up/heart/whatever the hell you crazy kids do on your social medias.

Switch rumors - motion control, multitouch screen, dock secrets, Beyond Good & Evil 2 & more

All this info comes from Laura Kate Dale, who has proven herself extremely trustworthy with information. She has gone through multiple sources to get this information. Still, it's all rumor until Nintendo confirms. If you hit up the source link, you can see just how Laura got all this info.

- Switch will be region-free
- Joy-Cons will support motion control & rumble
- Switch dev kits support Wiimotes
- motion support will be confirmed closer to launch
- the Splatoon and Mario Kart games will support motion
- Breath of the Wild will support motion control for things like gyro aiming, steering, use of the magnet ability
- the past six months have been legal and pre-development discussions between Ubisoft/Nintendo for Beyond Good & Evil 2
- discussions included budget and direction, project scope, and how much of previous development efforts could be salvaged
- October art teases were the result of the project reaching a point where all parties were confident they could re-announce it
- Switch screen is a multitouch screen, used for menus, for drawing, for certain games
- all Switch games need to be playable with the handheld in the console dock, all Switch games will be playable without touch
- dock will have additional processing power
- maximum battery life of three hours
- price, release dates for regions, launch software and spec press releases are essentially ready for release

RUMOR - Switch will not be the successor to 3DS, replacement coming much later

I am keeping this marked rumor because we don't have an official translation of the information. With that said, I'm quite surprised to see that Nintendo plans to release a dedicated portable system that will succeed the 3DS. With Switch being a console/portable hybrid, I figured it would take the place of both hardware lines.

Nintendo Switch - comments on succeeding Wii U, backwards compatibility and more

These translations come from Perfectly Nintendo, who translated a recent Famitsu article...

- Famitsu asked whether Nintendo was positioning the Nintendo Switch as the Wii U successor
- company replied that its new console didn’t really fall in the usual “(stationary) home console” category
- not really appropriate to call the Nintendo Switch the Wii U’s successor
- their new console is a first and foremost a home gaming system
- on the question if the Nintendo Switch would be compatible with Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games, Nintendo replied that it wouldn’t be the case, as it’s not a successor to either platforms
- clearly specifies that you will not be able to use Wii U game discs and Nintendo 3DS cards
- included in the box are the main unit, the Dock, the Joy Con detachable controllers (Left and Right)
- full details about what will be included in the box will be revealed at a later date
- Nintendo didn’t give any details regarding the game cards, outside that they are called just that
- battery wise, Nintendo confirmed that it was designed so that users could play as long as possible, “comfortably”, even in places where you don’t have access to a power outlet
- on whether the Nintendo Switch would be able to play games for smart devices, Nintendo said that they couldn’t answer the question now

GoNintendo Video - My Parents React: Nintendo Switch reveal trailer

My parents had no idea that Nintendo revealed the Switch today. They thought they were coming over to play a game for the usual Parents Play feature. I plopped them down on the couch and hit them with the trailer. Check out what they have to say during the trailer, as well as the discussion that follows after. I hope you enjoy!
