Switch gaming console crucial to Nintendo success

Switch gaming console crucial to Nintendo success

"We're happy to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Nintendo on the trailer". Once called the NX, say hello to the Nintendo Switch.

The reply from a spokesperson for Bethesda was nearly the same.

We can see that with the Switch, as not only did its announcement come with franchise staples like Mario and Link, but with key triple-A releases like Skyrim and National Basketball Association 2K. According to the game maker, games made for cell phones and other portable platforms will still be viable. And despite being a new platform following the less than stellar Wii U, there will be plenty of games to choose from.

Nintendo Co.'s big idea for the next gaming trend is one machine that works equally well as a mobile gadget as it does on a big TV screen. It would be great if the Switch launched with a massive library. Who doesn't want to slay dragons and slam dunk in the backseat while on a grocery store run?

Nintendo's Switch console could "revolutionize" the way people play games because of its unique capabilities and design, Ubisoft Entertainment SA Chief Executive Officer Yves Guillemot said in an e-mailed statement. We know a lot more about the Switch than we did a few days ago, but its stylish reveal left us wondering a few things that we hope Nintendo will address sooner rather than later.

You may have noticed that the Switch trailer featured new Mario Kart, Mario, Splatoon, and Zelda games along with titles like National Basketball Association 2K17 and Skyrim. Perhaps Nintendo is banking on this, bringing back an old school feel to a new school console.

According to Google, the Pixel phones are the first phones that it has engineered and developed completely in-house. Quick tasks, like taking a selfie, can be launched from the home screen by holding down on the app you want to use.


While the wait for any information on specs for the Nintendo Switch may be a test of patience, Nintendo did talk to Famitsu - via Perfectly Nintendo - about some burning questions surrounding the Switch, including battery life and backwards compatibility. But the games shown running on Switch look like last-generation offerings.

Ultimately, the hype around the Nintendo Switch is both understandable and scary. Devices like the Wii U and 3DS have focused on families and children, whereas this new device appeals to nearly all demographics, Peckham wrote.

One of the most impressive-looking first party titles showcased by Nintendo was Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which was also showcased for the Wii U at during E3 this year.

After making confirmations about their plans of showing its console, the company was able to make good with their promise, which gave fans a taste of what their system has to offer in all of its glory.

In addition, the new Switch trailer has ranked No. 1 on YouTube's trending list - ahead of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Sneak Peek" video. You might have been waiting for the new console since a long time.
