Looking forward to playing Zelda on the Wii U and seeing how the opening months unfold for the Switch.

I'm not so sure about Wii content coming.

I'm still of the thought that GameCube is a 50/50 proposition, let alone the beefed up version of the hardware that was known as the Wii. I imagine...

Online multiplayer is very much a secondary feature in Japan, where as it's front and center for...

He's talking about emulation quality, I'd imagine. It's much better quality than their previous NES emulators that have been utilized on their various Virtual Consoles and on the GameCube.

I never considered that they'd be leaving proprietary chargers behind. I agree that it's worthwhile to see, even if it's ultimately just for that.
