    So is it just me, or does Fe look like a 3D version of Ori and the Blind Forest?

    Blazblue Cross Tag Battle will release on June 5.

    Seems to have issues with content, though.

    I can't wait for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Switch. I never got round to buying it for my Wii U, but the Switch version will automatically be the go-to for me. Portability v only being able to play it in the house - a no brainer.

    So, now there is talk about "something" being revealed on Thur.

    After the drama with the last direct, I need a break from the hype train.

    There are no rumors floating about what this could be. I'm really curious.

    Yeah, it sounds like those who have seen it, have been hit with a super NDA, so they are scared to hint about it.

    Could be a new peripheral for the Switch? I've seen it suggested it could be like a kids mode parents can engage in the UI, but there's really no reason for that. The Switch UI is super bare bones and there's no voice chat or text chat for kids to get in trouble with.

    I guess I was right about the peripheral announcement. Didn't think the peripheral would be cardboard. I'm also guessing this is gonna be unreasonably expensive too. I don't know who this is for.

    Nintendo, you go on continuing to be Nintendo. Did not expect that. And now, Nintendo has ALL the peripherals. I almost wonder if we are going to get a cheaper, Labo version of the Switch. I guess it depends on if the software that comes with the starter packs contains a downloadable code or a cartridge.

    But wow, what a cool idea for kids.

    I mean, I guess it's cool if you want something like that, but holy ****, is that some expensive cardboard.

    $70 for some cardbaord? Come on. They'll make a killing on these. I'm sure it's pennies to make, or at the most, $1-$2. The markup is hilariously expensive.

    They will apparently be offering the cardboard patterns for free. So the bulk of the cost is likely the cartridge.

    Essentially it's $60 for the game and $10 for the cardboard kits. The robot one is $20 cause well it looks like it's the most complex to assemble. I can definitely see this doing great with kids and parents.

    I have to say, how they are using the technology in the joycons to do some of these things is down right amazing. HD rumble to move an RC car. Tracking marked spots on string with the camera.

    I honestly wonder if Iwata thought of any of this. Or this just came up from Nintendo looking at VR, and how it is super expensive thing, and said, go cardboard for the kiddies.

    If it was anyone else but Nintendo I would think it was hilarious but this is definitely the sort of thing that would be heaps of fun coming from them

    After all these years Nintendo continues to surprise me, and I mean that in a good way. This could end up being brilliant.
