Nintendo reveals Nintendo Switch

According to Nintendo, the console isn’t a successor to the 3DS or Nintendo Wii and serves a kind of transitional console-similar to the PS4 Pro and Microsoft’s Project Scorpio. After all, strength in numbers. The Virtual Console has been on the Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. However, buying a game for one platform doesn’t unlock it on others.

National Basketball Association 2K and Skyrim have been featured in the trailer, but neither 2K Games nor Bethesda were able to provide a confirmation that their respective titles are in the pipeline to make the switch to Nintendo’s upcoming console, pardon the pun. “The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles”, Nintendo wrote in the video’s YouTube description.

Of course whether or not consumers are fine with this will depend largely on the Switch’s price, which is yet to be announced.

Local Multiplayer is awesome-there’s nothing better than playing Federation Internationale de Football Association 17 on the couch after a cheeky session at the pub-but Nintendo needs to show us they’re committed to online multiplayer with the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo unveiled the new product Thursday.

“Nintendo’s NX reveal got the gaming community really excited yesterday”. But Nintendo hasn’t confirmed this yet-and we will believe it when we hear it from them.

But Nintendo hardware isn’t bought with the head, it’s bought with the heart, and I love what I’ve seen of the Switch so far.

“What games will it launch with?”

As soon as Nintendo showed off the Switch, one concern bubbled up over all others: battery life.

A trickle of games have appeared on iOS and Android devices, including the wildly popular Pokemon Go. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

It has a kickstand!: If you intend to play the Nintendo Switch away from home, there is a 100% chance that you’d need to keep it upright.

The official Twitter account for Unreal Engine 4, the engine many top titles are built upon, will officially support the console. Not only can the Switch go anywhere on your person, but you can play it with your friends (because of course). We know that the Nintendo Switch is moving back to the nostalgia of cartridges instead of discs.

As previously rumored, the Joy-Con controllers for the Switch will have motion sensing and rumble in the manner of the Wii Remote.

It’s the first mobile home console: Strictly speaking, the Nintendo Switch can claim to be the first one to allow gamers to actually take their home gaming wherever they go. //em , and it needs to change that logic so it can gain the interest of third-parties and their prized franchises.

When answered, the Millennial gamer might think about their allegiance to the Playstation or Xbox, compare it to Nintendo’s newest addition and, well, switch. The Switch will work the same way. That kind of defeats much of the objective of online gaming with buddies if you can’t socialize and coordinate with them. Granted, we/u0027re not talking getting to shovelware levels like the Wii did years ago, but obviously something where good games can come from smaller teams. It seems that time will tell just how much involvement they’ll have.
