    Link to the trailer for those wondering:

    It does look good. Not sure if it's enough to motivate me to get a Switch, though. Asidee from Nintendo, are there any games exclusively on Switch that wouldn't be available on, say, Steam?
    You are startled by a grim snarl. Before you, you see 1 Red dragon. Will your stalwart band choose to (F)ight or (R)un?

    there was a thread on here that answered that very question. I had pointed out that I am a fan of the game Marble it Up for Switch but I am sure there are dozens of other must-have exclusives that people mentioned in that thread

    At least this new game looks to be 2D, I never got into any of the 3D first person Metroid games.

    yeah same here. I put maybe an hour or two into Prime and it just didnt suck me in like the other Roids. I generally just prefer 2D games in general though and I think games like Metroid, Castlevania, Contra, Mega Man play a lot better on a 2D plane.

    I also disliked Metroid Prime, but not because it was 3D (I actually thought being 3D was an awesome idea for a game themed around exploration). Rather, my problem was just that it was boring and had a lot of dubious design decisions. I actually just finished writing a rant about this so whenever I upload that to Google Docs I'll link it.

    When it comes to Mega Man, I loved the Legends games. I've heard that X7 and X8 were also 3D and didn't quite work as well, but I haven't played them yet.
