Fils-Amie's statement, which comes from an interview with Wired, also helps quell some fears regarding the Nintendo 3DS, which some critics believed could be rendered obsolete by the Switch.

The recent supply problems seen in the market for the NES Classic Edition Mini consoles won't be repeated with the Switch launch, reassured Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.

While the official presentation of the Nintendo Switch took place Friday morning, we learn a little more about the new removable controllers of Nintendo.

For a very long time, Nintendo didn't require you to pay for a subscription to play online multiplayer. The Switch's system specs don't necessarily help clarify that either, and its battery life when away from its dock has come under fire from some who feel the Switch's mobility may be limited by how often it will need to be recharged.

Have you gotten your hands on the preorder for the Nintendo Switch? We've done this before, managing two different systems. Although whether or not the Switch can catch on to that extent at its current price is something that remains to be seen. Let us know in the comments. During my own plodding around the internet I found that the Nintendo Switch (Neon Red/Neon Blue) was still up for pre-order at Amazon UK, but the more tasteful grey one was unavailable. These games will be available at launch: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ($59.99) and 1-2-Switch ($49.99) from Nintendo, Just Dance 2017 ($59.99) from Ubisoft, and Has-Been Heroes ($19.99) from GameTrust, available exclusively at GameStop.
