Blaster Master Zero looks fun, but it also looks like a fan made game. I wish it were more updated, especially as far as the music goes. I like 8-bit music just fine but if the space and the specs allow it, then I think the music should sound better. Also this game will surely be on PS4 as well.

so what you're saying is I should buy both the switch and 3ds versions and wait for the ps4 version that comes out and then buy that one too! I like how you think, mister!

Here's why you need all 3 versions:

SWITCH - To play it on the go. Switch is the only portable console.
PS4 - To play it on your TV. PS4 is the only system that can play on TV.
3DS - To play in 3D. 3DS is the only system that can play in 3D.

Makes sense to me!

I think Nintendo's problem is that people won't be motivated to buy multiplatforms on their system. I see those games and I think of all the trophies that I could add to my PSN.

I stopped caring about trophies and achievements after I hit 50 100%/plats, too much hassle for what they are worth, which is nothing but bragging rights.
So I've actually been buying my games on Nintendo so I don't have to think about them, my OCD won't kick in that way lol

but meh, I got some of the hardest games plat done, so I'm only mostly only doing it for games that are extremely hard.
I had people want to pay me to get platinum done for vanquish and Metal gear rising. lol

Nintendo has the Kudos™ system to compete with trophies and achievements.
