Now that we’ve had over half a day knowing that the Nintendo NX is now officially named the Nintendo Switch, we’ve gotten our fair share of rumours, from the third-party devs that are onboard with it, to the specs. While we have to wait and see for all of that juicy stuff, that doesn’t take away from the beautiful 3-minute glorified commercial dedicated to showing this baby off.
I for one am excited, but I am wary, given their past 3 home consoles. The Gamecube was great, but failed to capture the success of the N64, SNES, and the NES before it. The Wii, while sold well, also relied primarily on its gimmick, the Wii Remote. The Wii U was a solid system, but it was poorly marketed, lost most of its 3rd party support, and failed to capture the success of the Wii. Now we have the Switch, which seems Nintendo can bring it in the right direction.
My first impressions are an 8.5/10
