It's the game that most perfectly represents the Gamecube, honestly.

I'm all for a GameCube Virtual Console though I'd still like to see most of those games remastered if only to put them in widescreen without stretching the picture. I had my doubts that Nintendo would ever release Super Smash Bros. Melee HD, but I'm holding out hope (in vain) the Switch port of Super Smash Bros. For Wii U/3DS has a Melee Mode that emulates Melee's speed, physics, and gameplay but tries to fix its balancing issues so more than four characters are viable.

Myself, I'd love to see a Smash 64 mode. I always liked the gameplay best there, but it sorely lacks content.

This I loved Smash Bros 64 more than any other.  Melee's single player content was much better...but I found the speed to be too fast.  Also, I found the overly advanced technical hits of Melee and others to be annoying.  Seriously, I have to time my attack to hit the tip of a sword or show to get the strongest attack...who would have even thought to be that specific without reading about it?

If that is directed towards me.  I hope you know I had positives to say as well.  Sunshine while I was playing it the first time was very engaging and many aspects were much better than Super Mario 64.  That said, there are some games I love and are great games, but I will probably never play through again.  Sunshine is one of those games...then there are games I can play through, over and over again.  Super Mario 64 is one of those games.  I think it comes to accessibility.  And I think SM64 is more accessible than Sunshine.  Also I will play Link to the Past over and over again...but the other 2D Zeldas and OoT I can't play through again...there are just bottleneck areas that I don't want to trudge through to get to the better parts of the game again.  That is why story is never important to me in playing games...I know it is just my opinion though.

THQ Nordic is working on two games for the Switch. Me thinks it's a port of the first Darksiders and a remaster of some obscure Gamecube/PS2 era game.


This tells me enough to decide to not buy the Wii U edition until Switch launch just to be sure. I have DS2 digital on my Wii U, but I'd love to get a physical combo pack of 1 & 2 on Switch.

Melee will 100% be the best selling game on the GameCube Virtual Console.

It won't, because Nintendo will follow their MO of announcing this "great new system with VC support" and then only release 3-4 titles we slightly care about and "surprise us" with Double Dash a two and a half years later, giving us hope for a revival, only for us to be disappointed for another 3-4 years... ;)

That's an odd way of spelling Double Dash.

Super Mario Kart Double Dash would definitely beat Melee.  I think that is one of the better Mario Kart games.  Though, I really want a Mario kart with the controls of Double Dash but the Weapons of Super Mario Kart 64, which had the best Blue Turtle Shell, and also I loved being able to break and prevent banana peel spin outs. 

If a Double Dash sequel was made I would love to seem them add an item combination feature that allows for a special powered up attack combining the two drivers items.  Like Mushroom and Red Turtle shell is a faster shot.  Lightning and Banana Peel shrinks players.  Ghosts and and a special item steals that specific item and gives you two of them.

Meant to post this here versus the official game announcement thread.

Rumor has it from a pretty solid source that From Software has Dark Souls 3 running on the Switchand are happy with the performance.

Quote
According to one of our sources, From Software has Dark Souls 3 running on the Nintendo Switch with a level of performance they are happy with. They have not committed to releasing it yet, but discussions internally at the company have discussed the financial viability of re releasing the main three Dark Souls titles on the Switch with their DLC bundled in.
Development on a Switch port has been underway for several months via a small team, with From Software waiting to see initial sales data before committing to producing ports. The plan would be for a Switch rerelease of Dark Souls 3 if greenlit to release the same day as PS4, Xbox One and PC receive versions with all DLC included.


Hopefully, provided the sales data looks favorable, that last sentence implies they would release Dark Souls 3 with all DLC for Switch the same day as PS4, Xbox One, etc.


This is sounding positive. I would have to give strong consideration to picking up one or all three of these games. If this is a sign of the kind of games we can expect on Switch, then this is going to be a successful platform for Nintendo.

Evans_B:  I agree Melee doesn't need to come back.
Personally, I think Super Smash Bros. For Wii U/3DS mops the floor with Melee. It's hard for me to go back to any other previous Smash game. However, I don't understand your position. Why shouldn't Nintendo bring Melee back? What harm would that be? We still get the Switch port and probably a sequel down the line. Why shouldn't Melee be revisited in some way? The game has a really passionate following. Why try to take that away from them? Why not introduce it to a newer generation? By the same token, I didn't really like Mario Kart: Double Dash, but **** it, bring it back. Let's get a Double Dash mode in Mario Kart Switch (granted, alongside fixing Battle Mode).

Amazon wouldn't charge until it ships, though. And GS won't open preorders until the 13th of January.

Rumor: FF VII Remake will be on Switch, and will be the first or one if the first things shown in the January 12th announcements. That was part of the reason why it hasn't shown much since its announcement in 2014. Is also why Cloud is in Smash Bros despite having never appeared on a Nintendo console.

That would be a huge get for Nintendo. I've never played it, and have no real interest in changing that, but that'll draw a lot of attention to the system.
