Nintendo Switch.

NinNews1

After what feels like forever Nintendo have finally decided to give the world a look at their next console, the Nintendo Switch. Much as the rumours had suggested the Nintendo Switch will indeed look to be both handheld and home console, allowing players to take their tablet inspired machine with them wherever they go or connect it directly to a big screen for a more traditional home console experience. The distinctly trendy trailer which revealed the Switch also revealed the console will opt for DS style carts instead of disks and feature a detachable controller reminiscent of the Wii’s nunchuk and that Splatoon, Mario Kart and more unexpectedly Skyrim are all to head to the new console, in fact a “sample” list of developers backing Nintendo’s latest endeavour can be found below.
Sadly more juicy details like pricing or system specifications were frustratingly absent from the reveal, however at least we now know for sure which direction Nintendo are heading in with the Switch and everything else will become clear in time.

  1. That third-party list is impressive, and I sincerely hope that they bring their best and not just ports and weaker offerings. Wii U had a big list, but it fizzled out. If Nintendo Switch can keep their partners and get great games that we can play on-the-go, then this could mean big things. I, for one, am very excited for the Nintendo Switch and look forward to picking it up come March!

    1. I was surprised by how excited I was after the trailer too but it really did leave me very impressed. Nintendo need to bring a whole bunch of AAA titles though, these game droughts have to end.

  2. Sounds like a cool idea. Their recent consoles haven’t been great, but by leveraging their handheld reputation this machine could be a hit. What’s especially encouraging is that for the first time in ages Nintendo seem to have courted third party support.

    1. Nintendo clearly struggled to support both the 3DS and Wii U over the last couple of years so hopefully this move to bring handheld and console together will mean a load more games.
