I know this could/should be a separate thread in another category, but I'm surprised no one has made mention of who's slated to score Xenoblade 2.

The trailer mentioned Mitsuda and ACE.

If the first game is any indication, Mitsuda will compose a theme song (probably played during the end credits) and the rest of the game will be scored by ACE, which is perfectly fine by me, because the first game's soundtrack kicked ass.

On the other hand, Shimomura doesn't seem to be involved this time, so maybe Mitsuda gets to do a little bit more (title screen, maybe?). I bet/hope the majority of the music will still be done by ACE though.

I'm waiting to see how much better the Switch version of the new Zelda is.  The new Mario game isn't enough to sway me to buy a new Nintendo console given how little I've played the Wii U.

From what I've read, the Switch version runs a bit smoother, but they're both still 30FPS, just with (frequent?) frame rate dips on Wii U.

Also, Switch has slightly higher resolution and better sound.
And the Wii U version has a mandatory install of 3GB, which apparently doesn't work on USB sticks:

Oh, sry, my bad.

Speaking of the Switch and borrowing a bit from avatar's one thread:

Am I the only one that's a bit annoyed that Gamestop is trying to bundle Switch stuff together already? No, putting Just Dance in a bundle with all the Zelda stuff isn't going to make me want that game. Yes, you may save in the end but I don't know why this bugs me as much as it does? Does it reek of desperation? Eh, hell if I know.

I just placed an order for Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Ultra Street Fighter II and Mario Odyssey from Amazon. The total, after tax and Prime Savings, came to $195 for all four of them. That's $48.75 per game. I'm pretty happy with that, but now I have to find a Switch system for the list price. It's easy enough to find one for $450 and higher, but I'm not looking to support the exploitation marketplace.

The turning point for me wasn't one thing. I can't say specifically what it was, but a combination of many positive things. The lack of an optical drive, the cart-like games, the dual nature of the system, the need to escape from reality (Breath of Wild seems to deliver on that point), etc. - all positives that influenced me.

Edit: I got a notice from the Bloodstained Kickstarter I backed that the Wii U version was cancelled and is being replaced with a Switch version. That was a significant factor as well.
