So I'm thinking of buying a Switch

What do I need to know?

What are extras I need to grab with it - IE carrying case, screen protector, classic controller etc.

Any idea how much it will cost me roughly? (Ball park figure)

I'm thinking of grabbing Mario, Zelda and Mario Kart if I can find them in English.

if you can order a Walmart splatoon bundle or Mario bundle, 499.99 CDN, comes with the game and case, so you wouldn't need anything else other than the screen protector and maybe the pro controller, but you could save some money right now and just use the joy cons in the grip.

just remember, buy the games where you can get them the cheapest, since the system is region free, buy them from euro or NA if they are cheaper than buying them in HK.

I confess i'm thinking about getting one with Xenoblade chronicles 2 myself.

I really don't want to buy anything else on top of it though. Woukd be great if the Vita SD cards worked though, cause i could spare one of those.

How much internal HDD memory does the switch have?

edit: found out. It's 32G.

Same as the Wii U i got. :x

32GB you are fine if you don't care about DD games and dlc. I have a 128gb card in mine, I haven't even got to it yet and I already bought 20 games over the eshop, when I get bonus points from stores, I always use it on gift cards

Be warned even if you are buying retail games a lot of games are going to be requiring a mandatory day one download so you don't really own the games on the cartridge per se. Since I know you hate digital games. That's mainly third party titles though (things like LA Noire, Doom, Wolfenstein 2 etc).

Since Nintendo knows their hardware better obviously there games should be alrigh for now anyway. There is quite a few indie games though getting retail releases on the Switch which is nice.

I have two questions about the Switch.

Is there a way to tell how much charge your Joycons have left? I haven't been able to find one yet.

How do you find your specific friend code (or whatever it's called) to add people to play online?
