I'm cautiously optimistic about it. I think it's innovative, and I like what they're trying to do, but I want to see how it's executed before I buy. From what I understand, when it comes to power, it's going to lie between the Wii U and PS4. Which is fine, but it really is going to need to wow me in other areas as I already own a PS4.
If Nintendo can provide high quality first-party releases (such as a new Animal Crossing and new Mario games), then it may just entice me enough to get one. We shall see.
Arms looks cool, and I'm super hype for Super Bomberman R. It's great seeing Bomberman back in the spotlight after that dreadful 360 game.
As for the Switch itself? I'm happy that the gimmick this time around isn't intrusive like the Wii's motion control or the Wii U's gamepad. I imagine it'll make developing for the Switch less of a pain for 3rd party developers, which is an area Nintendo has been lacking in for a while.
Everything happens for a reason.
I've yet to figure out that reason, though...
Probably what I'm most excited about it that it's not region-locked! Living in the UK has been brutal with my NA machines, as there is a great gaming store not far from my house, but I can't buy anything Nintendo there.
AND there's also a much greater likelihood of us being able to get a hold of a console soon, seeing as we missed the pre-order window. This is actually the first time I've wanted to buy a console at launch for a very long time; I got burned with the GameCube.
