Off the top of my head

TWEWY Final mix, probably the mobile version with Switch enhancements and maybe a new char

New Mario Tennis

Char DLC for Pokken, I don't know anything past G1 so Blastoise and Mew and some other shit including what appears to be a dead Pikachu

Port of DK Tropical Freeze adding the funkiest of Kongs

Port of Hyrule Warriors adding some BotW Link and Zelda

SNK Gal fighters Tag team

Some more Kirby powers

NEW Mario Tennis

Some free DLC for Odyssey where Luigi has you hide some balloons or something

DK joins the team in Mario+Rabbids

Dark Souls Remastered somehow but whatever Dark Souls 1 on switch

Also new Mario Tennis
Back from the bellows of hell
Back from the back of a jail in a cell
Back from the common decrees to the common degree
Back to the streets from the East
Back to the belly of beast
Back to the place of my peace
Back to me holding my piece
Anything working disturbing that peace
Will certainly meet the deceased, capiche?

I'm quite happy with Hyrule Warriors definitive edition on Switch. It's almost nothing, but it's about damn time.
Although I resumed playing Fire Emblem Warriors a bit more since the DLC release, and there's a few little things that were a notable step up.
Spoiler: bit of a rant (click to see content)
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

$70.00 for cardboard. That's right $70 for pieces of cardboard! They literally hit the bottom of the barrel for this one.

This looks so incredibly imaginative, yet so likely to fail miserably. It's the quintessential Nintendo product.

I imagine Nintendo chose cardboard so it's easy to burn once this line of products flop and they're left with a gazillion warehouses of unsold product. That or this is a misguided attempt the same product multiple times once the cardboard runs its course.

Edit: if the serial is just a handful of numbers on plain sight (looks at 0:23) with no meaningful encryption, what's stopping anyone from downloading a blueprint from one of these on the internet and playing with a pirate Labo?

I can't imagine this is going to go over well at all.  I mean, it's cardboard for fuck's sake.  Even if you avoid accidentally tearing something crucial when you're putting it together, you've got maybe 4 months at best before the thing just starts to deteriorate of it's own accord.

Yea pretty much. Cardboard does not last too long.

I have no idea what Nintendo was thinking when they did this other than "Okay guys, we ran out of ideas for new game systems, so here's some pieces of cardboard for you for new experiences with your current console. Go nuts with it LOL!"

40 years from now said:
You young people and your new technology, back in my days we just bought a box of cardboard for $70 and had fun with it for months until it just rotted away

Because we had no other game to play with on the Switch.

Oddity Archive, I have a candidate for your show...

...if you check out Episode 12, "Top (Thanksgiving) Turkeys (The (19)90's)", Nintendo's VirtualBoy made the list.

This is all I gotta say about it: is Nintendo trying to be Apple now? Cause I really can't believe it. Great company, but...

nobody knows what that channel is

i read that ign france said the labo are not mandatory and that nintendo will offer the design patterns for free. the prices look insane, but you're also paying for software. the problem is that they didn't make the software seem worthwhile (they looked like very small games, which is fine, but not at that price point). with that money i'd rather buy some other DIY toy

It's not just a piece of cardboard my guy. It took me all of 5 seconds to find this info.

Edit: You're not even required to buy the cardboard

I figured there was more to this, so you just need the cart to get things rolling. It's cool that something like this is happening, classic Nintendo quirkiness.

Update (1/18): Unfortunately, IGN France’s information was correct, and the site has now posted a retraction. Contrary to its first report, you will not be able to receive the cardboard patterns for free.

Looks like you can cross off all your "Labo is literally garbage" jokes now.

This story from the German ratings board (USK) is chuckle-worthy -- according to a tweet from the board, their cleaning crew almost threw out the sample Nintendo had sent. Translated, the tweet states, "Finally we can tell the story, when we had the latest Nintendo hardware, it was almost dumped by the cleaning crew as waste paper. In the past no one would have believed this story, anyway."

Did anyone know this was happening?

Wtf, Nintendo.
