Skyrim may be now six years old, however the Switch edition looks like it could be the absolute best version to date, with all the game’s myriad of DLC included (including a few Nintendo-themed extras), motion control added in for the console’s Joy-Con controllers, and true portable adventuring added thanks to the Switch’s ability to be taken anywhere. This classic western RPG has won more than 200 awards since its launch for a reason…
The Nintendo Switch has been released in North America, and it’s likely going to be very hard to track one down. This list will give you a good idea about what retailers may have the units, and which retailers are a waste of time.
Great console with functionality, but lack of great games for now. Easy to setup, handy for two players, although the L and R buttons on the joy-con are a bit hard to reach. The only thing i don’t like is the stand at the back, it is quite flimsy, and there is no rubber cover to protect the microsd when the stand is opened. Overall it is a great console!
This bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console and Nintendo Switch dock in black, and left and right Joy‑Con controllers in a contrasting gray. It also includes all the extras you need to get started.
Nintendo Switch is the innovative gaming console that provides a fun, immersive gaming experience anywhere, anytime. Whether you’re kicking back at home in front of the TV or out with friends, Nintendo Switch gives you the full single player or multiplayer gaming experience. Now your favourite games can go everywhere you do.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the first games available for the Switch, and it’s still the best reason to pick up Nintendo’s new console. With its lush woodlands and sun-soaked mountains, the scenery alone is enough to impress.The best part of this game is that you can actually explore all of it — and you absolutely should. Where Breath of the Wild differs from most Zelda games is that it’s about survival just as much as it’s about completing puzzles and defeating Ganon. When your health runs low, you have to hunt and cook meals to replenish it. If Link enters an area that’s too cold or warm, he’ll have to concoct an elixir or find the right clothing to stop his health from dropping. Of course, the crux of the storyline hinges on stopping Ganon, but in order to do so you must free all of the Divine Beasts while scouting out towers and solving puzzle-ridden shrines along the way. Breath of the Wild takes the strategy and puzzle-solving skills that were always necessary for success in Zelda games to an entirely new level.
It’s the most versatile console I’ve ever owned. I like that I can play on the TV and just pull it from dock and continue in any other room in the house and/or take it with me wherever I go. Sure, it’s not the most powerful system, but it makes up for that with the exclusives and the portability factor.
Snipperclips is a hilarious, 2D physics-based puzzle game and the quintessential Nintendo Switch experience for anyone interested in couch co-op experiences. The weird audible instructions shared between you and other players as you try to solve challenges will almost always make you laugh. But Snipperclips incredibly flexible puzzle designs offer you lots of opportunities to experiment and try out different solutions.
This is the one for all you Pokemon fans out there as it comes with the freshly updated Pokken Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch. Better yet, you’re getting a themed Pro controller to go with the game in addition to the standard Joy-Cons. There’s a Pokemon poster too as a nice finish. This Nintendo Switch deal is available direct from Nintendo.
At least that’s what the console costs, but if you want to have a great experience with the Switch, you’re going to need more — much more. That $300 price for the Nintendo Switch doesn’t include the cost of games, storage, screen protectors, extra controllers, and carrying cases. Indeed, there are a ton of hidden costs disguised behind the consumer-friendly $299 price point.
