To start, Nintendo’s Switch released on March 3 and has been selling well. Over 2.7 million consoles have sold, more by the time this is posted. It seems to be continuing, as well.
One important key factor for every video game system are ‘the games.’ If there were very few game, we would more than likely see another Wii U. The Switch will hopefully proof otherwise. In fact, about every single game shown in the October reveal was eventually confirmed to come to the Switch, ie the Wii U’s reveal where games were cancelled. The Switch seems to be getting more now, slowly but surely; It is very unlikely Skyrim will be cancelled this late as it launches in the fall for Switch. An actual ‘trailer’ needs to be shown very soon though instead of only the Switch reveal or presentation.
The Switch will be in good shape if games come. It does not need every single game in existence though to do well; As long as it also has a steady supply of first-party games, system stock, and ‘better than Wii U’ marketing.
Just bear in mind when a developer says they are big fans of Nintendo (for this matter) does not mean anything. It only creates false hype.
Nintendo Switch is available now for $299.99 USD / £279.99 BP. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Snake Pass are great additions to buy first on your Switch. Later this year, you’ll be able to pick up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, (listed above) Super Mario Odyssey, PAYDAY 2, and more.

Nintendo’s Direct focused on ARMS 2 today. It talked about how the game works. A Global Testpunch was also announced, similar to the Splatoon 2 multiplayer demo.
In other news, a new Splatoon 2 trailer was revealed to the public. This one focuses on single player as well as the co-op mode.
Both games come out on Switch this summer. ARMS comes out on June 16. Whereas Splatoon 2 will release the following month. Get S2 on July 21.

A Nintendo Direct will be Live tomorrow or today, depending on your location. It will show at 3PM PST and 6PM EST US times. If you live in the UK, it will likely premier at midnight. However, there should also be a Europe version.
Moving on to the main point of this. Nintendo Direct will mainly talk about ARMS and Splatoon 2, but mostly ARMS. Maybe we will see a few surprises or E3 sneek peeks. (Don’t expect too much.)
I will make a follow up after the Direct sometime.
I will soon be uploading a video on YouTube explaining my schedule for the week of E3. It will include when and how I am doing coverage on this year’s E3. I will update in the next week or so on this matter.
E3 2017 takes place in Los Angeles on June 13 to June 15.

Nintendo uses a new rewards program to replace Club Nintendo called My Nintendo. Recently, Nintendo added a new kind of discount of 40% off. The two new games (new deals) are from Capcom. They are Street Fighter IV 3D Edition for Nintendo 3DS/2DS, the next game is Street Fighter Alpha 2 for NEW Nintendo 3DS/NEW 2DS XL (LL). This is a good thing Nintendo is doing as it shows better discounts for games. Some are even more recent than a NES or SNES game.

LEGO City Undercover was a great game. As for the story, it was okay. It was nothing great, though.
The game has good playability. It is recommended to play more on TV with the Pro Controller (or two with multiplayer split-screen) but Joy-cons were fine when needed. The Joy-cons were acceptable while undocked.
Now, it was a LEGO game so don’t expect anything of the likes of Grand Theft Auto V or Resident Evil VII, but it had decent graphics. It even was on par with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions. Although, its counterparts had slightly better visuals. (The PC version had major issues.)
The game’s soundtrack was good. The ending themes may be more favorable.
LEGO City Undercover is a good game. If you have a Switch, then consider picking up this game while waiting for some other third-party titles to release.

Friday releasese are Nintendo’s day. The company released Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Switch today.
Mario Kart 8 was originally released in May of 2014 on the Wii U. The console did not do so well, however it was one of the best selling games on the console. Perhaps Nintendo decided to upgrade to a new version on Switch due to the poor sales on Wii U. So in a sense, it makes sense to do this. But it would also make sense to do that with Double Dash on GameCube.
Anyway, the game is available on Switch today.
