Also announced- Overwatch for the Switch. A shoutout was given by Mr. Sakurai to go and play Banjo Kazooie on the Xbox 1 during the Smash presentation. And this guy showed up in the Smash presentation...



Sadly, just a costume for the Mii fighters it seems. Also the homerun contest is returning to Smash. Yay.

And cult favorite Deadly Premonition gets a sequel!

...on the Switch.

I believe the Wii was the one gaming platform that the original (which is getting a remaster too) that Deadly Premonition was not released on so this makes perfect sense.

I haven't had time to watch the presentation, but man, the little bit I've been able to read has been great.

Thought for sure Mario Sunshine was gonna get announced.
FINE

Finally, a game to go with my two copies of Duck Game (BTW, if you've never played Duck Game, it's great.  Think 8-bit Smash Brothers meets Golden Eye.)

I you have an extra copy of Duck Game for Steam, I'd be happy to take it off your hands  :D

It feels like somebody slipped them an SNL parody of their peripherals and they didn't realize it.

I was told the same thing about the Switch Lite. That has more plausibility, though.

I'm not shooting it down until I hear more about it, but as teasers go, and as a proud owner of a Wii Balance Board and that Wii Fit Pedometer, I'm really not sure what I'm supposed to be getting off this.

Heck, if this is some sort of Switch Fit, I'm all for it.  I'm working on losing weight (I'm almost down 40 pounds!) and if there's something for when I can't get out of the apartment or gamifies exercise, I'm for it.  IF that's what it is.

Read your guys' comments and then watched the video. This is doing exactly what it's designed to do. It's a teaser for a peripheral to get people talking until more info is released on the 12th. And, even without context, it's not the dumbest peripheral I've seen.

Isn't that literally what a teaser is meant to do, though? Like that's JJ Abrams whole schtick, right?

I was going to say J.J. Abrams' whole shtick was Lens Flare, but even he gave that up.
