Like your first kiss, we Nintendo fans will always remember the air of anticipation surrounding the Nintendo Switch launch. While a lot of the hype can be attributed to getting lost in adventure with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s expansive world, the prospect of being able to play full console titles on the go was genuinely exciting. Couple that with new ways to play courtesy of detachable Joy-Cons and a strong supporting lineup of games like Shovel Knight, Snipperclips, and Super Bomberman R, and it was clear Nintendo finally found a recipe for success we could all get behind.

It can be photos, videos, text messages, a poem – any fond feelings or memories you feel like sharing, really. Here’s mine to get those juices flowing:
