Nintendo seems to have a new hope by planning on their new Nintendo Switch release after their Wii U has failed miserably, despite the success of the original Switch. This home console has been waited for so long and the Japanese firm has put a lot of hope in this device. So, what’s special about this device, anyway? Well, first of all, it will come with two different functions and forms so you can use it as the handheld item or the home console design. With the basic design of a tablet and the controller, it is highly possible for you to enjoy the dual functions.
Nintendo Switch release and the Console
Set to be released around March the 3rd 2017, a lot of people have anticipated the device for quite a while. The Switch was previously named as the NX but Nintendo decided to change it. With a tablet computer and also the Joy-Cons controller that is attached to the side, the Switch seems promising – well, at least from the design alone. The controller isn’t the regular one because it can sense movement (sounds familiar, Wii fans?) and the screen is sensitive to the touch.
As a home console, the tablet has a special slot and dock that can be connected to the TV. So far, only a limited information has been provided to welcome the new Nintendo Switch release. Such as, there will 80 new games and they are under way. The battery can last from 2.5 hours to 6.5 hours. Among the new games, Super Mario Odyssey is included, which is the newer version of the original Mario. So, if you are a Mario fans, you should probably think about having this device. There will be also the Arms, a boxing game with motion controlled mode that should release in this spring.
Nintendo Switch Release and the Basic Problem
Of course, it is always exciting to have a new gaming console, especially from a well-known name and popular brand. However, there is a controversy about the machine since not many gamers, apparently, like the idea of the price tag. For the American platform, the device will be sold at around $300 while it will be £279 for the European market. In Japan, it will be sold at around ¥30,000 which is around $260. This is one factor that makes the Nintendo Switch release a bit problematic.
Such a price tag is definitely higher than everyone has expected and a lot of people have stated that it is possible that Nintendo has made another mistake. They are already in a bad place and they don’t need to make their position even down under because of this decision. What do you think about Nintendo Switch release, anyway?
