I don't like it. I would never give my children smartphone. It is not good for the brain. It is obsession. Also they will lose their ability to write, thinking, calculating etc.

Children won't be buying this. IT will sell to Nintendo fanboys aged 20+ and sell poorly. So no need to worry.

no, the kids young enough to not have phones have already asked their parents for phones. any little kid that gets the switch at launch probably goes into this category of already owning phone

Don't get your kids a smartphone then haha.

But technology is not a bad thing, think of the opportunities it can afford as well as possible downsides.

Lol, playing videogames has arguably the same demerits.

Yeah. At gunpoint, even. I always hate it Nintendo manifests as a physical entity and forces me to buy things. Curse them!
the content itself of the game not matter, for a game being a good waifu game. fanservice, romantic material isn't needed to be a waifu game. - dark-kyon

Soooooo, kids cant have smartphones because it makes them dumb? But having a video game console does not? I'm struggling to find any sense in all of this.

Children shouldnt be chatting online with strangers
"If PAC-MAN had affected us kids, we'd all be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive electronic music!"

The chat isn't likely to be with strangers, and it's up to parents to sort that out anyway, not Nintendo.
