Fans will find the console very reminiscent of the Wii. But this is intentional. As General Manager, Shinya Takahashi puts it:
“Nintendo Switch has inherited DNA from each of the many hardware systems that Nintendo has released to date.”
Since the Nintendo Switch presentation, additional games have been announced as launch games for the Nintendo Switch. Trailers have emerged of titles such as Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2. The furore around the console has sent pre-order sales sky-rocketing.
Can get everyone get Nintendo Switch?
Sadly, this isn’t the case. In India, Nintendo doesn’t officially sell their consoles and games. This is a shame as Nintendo Switch could help to invigorate India’s interest in console gaming.
Speaking to Pocket Gamers, Indian game developers gave their opinion on the matter. Abhinav Sarangi says: “If they launched in India at an aggressive pricing point, I can see it taking a share of the market from other consoles.”
By combining new features with old, Nintendo Switch proves to be a rival to match all other consoles. Nintendo shows how their unique console can be loved by gamers of all ages. This is a console not just for kids or Nintendo fans, but for everyone.
Hopefully, in time, Nintendo will share its newest creation with the entire world. Nintendo Switch releases on 3rd March 2017.
