Yeah, it's the most likely scenario isn't it. If they could just plan ahead and have all the 3DS/Wii U virtual console stuff on the Switch on day one (except perhaps the DS stuff as I'm not sure how well that would work!) it would be incredible, what a library the system would have from the go. Like you say though, Nintendo will no doubt do their usual slow trickle of games.
Hmmn... Nintendo is ending the online Wii Karaoke U service on 31 March. I'd guess this probably won't impact too many GRcadians but, alongside the closure of the Google Streetview and BBC iPlayer services, it does make me feel a little concerned about the U online services as a whole.
I wonder how long the servers for Kart 8, Smash, Splatoon, Mario Maker and Miiverse will run? I could imagine that Nintendo would want to turn them off quite quickly in order to bring increased focus upon the Switch services.

I hate to say it, but I think you could be right, magic. Tears will flow but - of course! - Club U will continue. In a way, this week could actually be seen as the peak of the console's life, what with a new Zelda title arriving .
