An easy swish for Nintendo
The day has finally arrived. We finally know the future of Nintendo’s console. The aptly named Nintendo Switch is a console/handheld hybrid that is cartridge based and is the most portable and versatile home console to date, if the reveal video is to be believed. The 3-minute video, linked below, shows off the portability of the console as well as the power of the new console.
The video was also a breath of fresh air for Nintendo fans, as it showed off a diverse software line-up on the console. Among the titles shown were Wii U hits Splatoon and Mario Kart 8, as well as a new entry in the Mario franchise yet to be announced.
The biggest surprise of this reveal is without a doubt the third party support of this new console. Bathesda’s Skyrim was prominently displayed as well as some sports titles during the video. This speaks to the power of this console but the diversity of software it will have at launch. The future of gaming looks bright.
