Travis Touchdown will be making his return on Nintendo Switch…
The title hasn’t been decided yet…
We will have a game that will have a fusion of death matches and strong style, heavily influenced by pro wrestling. And I’d love to see Travis running around in a game for the Nintendo Switch.

You can sell the full presentation and visit the official website for more details of the console and upcoming hands on events:
Nintendo has presented a creative and social driven console that offers different ways of using it. In terms of potency it will not please the hardcore audience, but we already knew that.
However, the initial lineup of games seems promising and if Nintendo can secure the kind of games we want from them, both from first and third-party studios, I don’t think they’ll have many issues selling the limited amount of units they’re planning on releasing. Even more considering many of them have already been reserved.
What do you think? Is the Switch an interesting console? Will it succeed?
