Nintendo Engineering & Product Development: The Nintendo Switch!
Most every good Nintendo fan knows about the new Nintendo Switch that is due to debut in stores starting in March 2017, along with the latest installment in the Zelda franchise, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This new system has taken the video gaming world by storm, and sold out presales overnight of the system itself as well as the master boxed sets of the new Zelda installment. Over 3.9 million people viewed the grand debuting of the system and games on Youtube with much excitement. It is clear that this is going to be a winner of a system in the eyes of fans everywhere!
For those who don’t know much about the Nintendo Switch, this is a system that works a few different ways. First, you can play it like any console with controllers on a big screen. The second is by playing with the controllers attached to the tablet like the Wii-U, but with a much longer range and a longer lasting battery life. The third option is to use the controllers like the original nunchucks or Wii-motes in friendly competition with friends and family. In other words, the Nintendo Switch has built upon previous game consoles and made it better for long time fans.
So what about this new console makes it so special in the eyes of fans everywhere if all it does is build upon past consoles? Well, the reason fans already love the new console is because of it harkening back to their childhood. Remember the days of playing Super Mario World on Super Nintendo, or Pokemon Yellow on GameBoy Color? Remember the sheer wonder that the Nintendo 64 and Game Cube brought to gamers everywhere? That is what the Switch intends to bring to its fans; a gaming console that brings back the magic the old consoles had in the past, but with new advancements that make the gaming more immersive! In other words, this is in many ways a golden egg for Nintendo and Nintendo fans alike.
The Nintendo Switch is set to become a major hit in the Nintendo community, and will likely be among the greater consoles available.
