I am overly excited about this. Me and my son used to spend plenty of quarters at a local play center on this game, so much so that I instantly recognized the music during the direct.

You don't get too many modern arcade ports these days, besides Street Fighter and Tekken.

Sega should release Daytona 3 on the Switch.

New Malibu Stacy. I mean switch model.
It's still the same etc etc...
BUT SHE'S GOT A NEW HAT!

I WANT IT
I WANT IT

only thing I want to know is if the docks are backwards and forwards compatible. I assume since the joycons are, the dock would be, but you never know with crazy Nintendo.

It will play all Switch games docked or handheld because it's just a Switch with an OLED screen. No other improvements.

I don't see why the docks wouldn't play the old Switch.

You suck, Nintendo!

The more I think about it, the more mad I get :olol: This has to be the most half-hearted update realistically possible. Upgrading the screen alone would've been fine, if it still cost $299 USD. Sell the updated dock separately and include with new system? Great. But all this for $50 more sucks.

wait. it's more expensive... $539. So it's not replacing the old one? just added to the lineup?t This needs a laughing man video on youtube.

It would be less hilarious if they Dropped the old switch to $369, and had this at $469.

I don’t know why any of you are complaining, y’all won’t be able to find one to buy anyway.

Honestly, this whole thing gives me flashbacks of the DS days with the XL versions of everything. No upgrades, just a larger screen that makes everything look worse because the resolution was made to suit a smaller screen.

Yeah the price is insulting, and it's a third separate model.

It's even more disappointing that they couldn't be bothered to add something paltry like Bluetooth audio. It would've been a day 1 purchase for me had they included this, I've come around to Bluetooth earbuds after buying a decent pair.

But there's still a chance that I'll be a sucker because I've been looking to get a new Switch so that I can mod my original console. lol They have me at my weakest point with the release tied to a new 2D Metroid game.
