i’m currently trying to keep myself from buying a switch because i want to wait for the collector edition of pokemon shield and sword… but there’s nothing announced yet… do you think we’ll get a collector for this game or since pokemon go had it’s own switch they wont do it?
mario maker is taunting me in my dream… need to resist xD
I’m personally hoping for a smaller and more comfortable Switch before Sword/Shield and AC comes out. I really don’t want the current Switch but I guess I might have to buy it.
But yeah we’ll probably get a small special edition like they’ve done before, a decorated dock or something.
Alright, but I’m having a hard time seeing how they would sell a “Switch S” or something, now with a 2" smaller screen!
They have in the past made smaller consoles because smaller has not had any sort of drawback in the past, but for the switch that would not be the case. I doubt you can look at past actions and say they will follow the same pattern here.
I would guess you’d probably be better served and more likely to get a new 3DS or an all new gen proper handheld than a scaled down switch.
@Fraggles: I’d also like to see a smaller Switch, FWIW. It’s a 720p screen and many games don’t even hit that resolution in portable mode anyway, so a smaller screen wouldn’t be much of a problem, and it’d make the system actually portable. It’s true that a 3DS is better at being a nice portable system, but I want those juicy Switch games xP
Back on topic: I’d be surprised if they didn’t do a new Pokemon skin for Sword & Shield. Nintendo wouldn’t stop at having only one Pokemon edition if there’s an opportunity to sell another one. I think it’s worth waiting to see! And if they don’t release one by the time the games come out, you can always get a regular one along with the game. Mario Maker will still be there, and there will be more levels for you to play by then :>
I personally can’t see why you’d even want a big screen for such low res games. What I want (unrealistic I know) is essentially another Shield Portable. I know they can’t make it quite as small as a DS but a bit smaller is definitely possible. How would it be a drawback?
And I do own every 3DS model except the 2DS XL, so yes I do enjoy those.
I think the switch/ lets go bundle is a sign that they will do it again. i mean you do have those Pokemon super fans that will buy anything with the logo slapped on it so i think Nintendo will do it. if it is not announced by aug/oct just get one
I want a small phone cause it’s compact, cause I can hold it easily and I can carry it around comfortably. The same goes for a HANDHELD console. The Switch is like wayyy too large to fit into my pocket. Also as others mentioned the low res would look a lot better on it. Basically the same as with the Nintendo 2DS. It’s cheap and it only lacks secondary features, so I could finally play some nice Switch titles without spending 330€ for a console + 1 game. The 2DS comes in at under 100€ + 1 game at times, if they manage to get the Switch lite out there for 200€ with a game I’ll be preordering lol
It’d be absolutely perfect for ppl with low budget who don’t care about playing on a big screen, I just want an amazing handheld so badly BTW SONY HEAR ME OUT pls make a portable PS4 thank you
