    Last great tennis game I played was Smash Tennis on the SNES. Really hoping that Mario Tennis is wonderful.

    Luigi's Mansion was a nice surprise, the 3DS version will go nicely next to my 3DS sequel on my shelf. Hopefully it sells well enough that we get a 3rd.

    Smash Bros. was always going to happen, I'm just happy its arrived so quickly, instead of us waiting a long time. This will also mean a new wave of Amiibos. Excited!

    Crash & South Park are very welcome. Happy with those additions!

    Captain Toad was a surprise but not one I care about? I'll still pick it up, I guess.

    Mario Tennis looks fun, but all those moves and racket breakers look confusing? Thankfully they have the basic mode. Tennis mad family, so this will be a must.

    Hyrule Warriors, I'll also pick up. Looked fun on WiiU but I never owned the console.

    Splatoon single player!!! I didn't realise this was missing when I bought the game, so getting it now is great! But the £20 price of the DLC is a bit hmm...

    Overall, I was happy.

    I would love to be able to play Super Mario Sunshine on my switch but I just don't see it happening :(

    Weird how excited people get for this 'direct' thing. Didn't think there was anything special at all announced, but then smash bros has never appealed to me.

    You do know Splatton 2 *has* a single player mode, right? Just asking because it is a bit hidden (under a manhole cover).

    @Jubs95
    Surely the new Mario Odyssey outfit was a hint that Sunshine is on its way?

    @UncleLou I didn't. I don't?

    I bought the game and others play it now, I haven't had a chance to explore it myself.

    That is good news though.

    @Pipedream I'd like to think so, there's a fair few GC games that would be great for the Switch. Might be why Luigi's Mansion was only announced for 3DS yesterday, hopefully saving some sort of announcement for e3 or something.

    Might be clutching at straws though!

    @Frogofdoom Surely they wouldn't be that cruel, right?

    @Jubs95 I hope they are physical re-releases, rather than virtual console stuff AKA Pokemon Crystal on 3DS for example.

    No idea but I would like to see some sort of official confirmation as they haven't done it yet as far as I know.

    It's one of those where it's surely safe to assume.

    No real hint that it was the WiiU version and Link looked the the Switch version of Zelda.

    I thought the announcements were great - canít wait for Mario Tennis and Smash but also interested in several others. Octopath looks good, I get a bit tired of constant 16-bit Indy games so like the twist on that graphical style.

    Iíve still got backlog from last year but this under-powered home console continues to keep me away from Xbox One X.

    Itís all about the games and them being fun for me these days.

    @Matt36 I'd love physical re-releases but I would also settle for virtual console stuff, I just want to be able to play them on the go.

    I think Nintendo are just trolling now.

    From the Splatoon footage. Gamecube's every where.

    @Jubs95 Most GC games, I own or have played. I want them updated and to be able to play on the move.

    If that means VC, then so be it, but I'd love a copy on my shelf.

    If they release a Golden Sun for the Switch, they can have all my money.

    I'd love some proper HD remakes of some things like SMS, Skies of Arcadia, Eternal Darkness, Baten Kaitos...

    It's criminal that Skies has never had a sequel.

    Thinking of GC Iíd quite like a monkey ball reboot. The one player was passable but the multiplayer was awesome. For some reason the first was better than second, the original monkey target on that was awesome.

    @CosmicFuzz It's been out for ages hasn't it? Tried it really wanting to like it but didn't get on at all.

    That's promising then, although Smash is probably one of the games that would be harmed by a port least as they quite often keep stages and the roster similar across versions.

    Slightly shinier graphics wouldn't go amiss though as well as an easier way to tell what's happening when you are playing 4p local games.

    A Golden Sun using the Breath of the Wild engine. Cryonis and magnesis reminded me so much of Golden Sun.

    I'd buy every damn amiibo and all the DLC. Ditto for Advance Wars. Damn, Nintendo is sitting on some great IPs.
