  1. Ridley X3 {Jaded Ninty fan. Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4. Awaiting Greatness on Nintendo Switch; just need cloud storage, add external HDD support, & to eliminate the need for that stupid Nintendo Switch Online App on smartphones.}

    For me, it’s Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade 2, & Metroid: Samus Returns.

    As for Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon & Fire Emblem Musou (Warriors outside of Japan) for Switch, I’m still on the fence with those.

  2. I am glad to see Metroid: Samus Returns on the list. It’s good to know there are japanese gamers interested in this game.
