I was lucky enough to purchase this new console. (I agree with previous comments that shortage of supply is an old trick to generate demand, anyway…) The console is really well made (as usual for Nintendo) and smaller than expected. I would love to have at least a game included within the box to start without any additional expense. Based on the specs published on internet, I am also not sure that it is more powerful than the WII U (I own all Nintendo since the SNES) which might compromise its usage with future technology like VR or AI. Just my 2ct.
With plenty of new customisation options to help newer players get to grips, as well as added depth via new levels of drift boosting, 200cc trial modes and the all-new Battle Mode, this is an absolute must-buy for Nintendo Switch owners.
There’s not much we can say at this point when it comes to the untitled Yoshi game. The series is well beloved by gamers of old and new with the character featured in a number of his own video games throughout the years.
Who said for you to enjoy a game, you need to look at the screen? Nintendo Switch has something that will help you throw an incredible party anywhere with anyone. In this game, players look and face each other and the screen. You and your friend or for this case, opponent, will get into real world actions like a copycat dance-off, cow-milking competitions, and wild-west duels.
Anyone looking for a Metroidvania game to play on the Switch while they wait for Metroid Prime 4 to arrive needs to take a look at Steamworld Dig 2. While the story is connected to Steamworld Dig, Steamworld Dig 2’s adventure can be played with no prior knowledge of what came before as the only real link are the characters involved. Steamworld Dig 2 really becomes addictive as you hunt down every upgrade you can find, along with mining resources and cashing them in back in town. If you like roguelikes and Metroidvania titles, this is an essential purchase for your Switch.
Nintendo said more than 50 game software makers are developing 80 titles for the Switch. Of those, eight will be available at the time of launch in Japan, including “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.”
Why should you buy it? If you haven’t played Night in the Woods yet, the fact it’s now on Switch means you literally have no excuse now. It’s high on the list of best indie games of 2017, and although it might look like a cutesy adventure of cats, foxes and crocodiles in a colourful world, it’s actually far darker than that. The story flows with sub-currents of mental health issues, concerns about identity and failure, death, mourning, love and all kinds of growing up pains, and it’s all utterly brilliant. You play as Mae, as she works out how to come home after dropping out of college to a town that’s not quite the same anymore, and is full of her past – both good and bad. Rhythm action, platforming and other gameplay tropes are all roped into telling Mae’s story, and thanks to the fact it comes free with the Weird Autumn DLC, the Switch port is the best way to experience her journey. Just be prepared, the scariest monster in the dark woods is you.
No matter the platform, Minecraft still stands tall as one of the best games around. Years of updates, free DLC, and oodles of community feedback has polished it into a deep and infinitely replayable sandbox game that we’ll almost certainly still be playing for years to come. Even better, the Switch version of Minecraft can be played multiplayer cross-platform with many other versions, making it a great bridge between playing on the go and on your couch with friends. – Tom Marks
I’m done I saved up my money for nothing the best buy I went to said that they restock two months after may (July) Tho We went May June and also July even august but nothing! I just give up with nintendo I wish they restocked more of these so I can actually get one and not be some person wasting my time saving up for something I can’t get.
With so many people missing out on the original Mario Kart 8 on the ill-fated Wii U, it’s great to see it get another chance on the Switch and with all the DLC thrown in too (hence the ‘Deluxe’). Race on over to GameStop to take a look.
While Nintendo traditionally designs its flagship consoles just for at-home play, the Switch is meant to be portable as well. A tablet smaller than an iPad mini houses the system’s core technology, allowing you to take the Switch on the go or slide it into its accompanying dock for TV gaming.
The Joy-Con controller is actually a pair of controllers that attach to the sides the the Nintendo Switch when not in use or when playing in tablet form away from the TV. When playing the Nintendo Switch on the TV, you can remove them and play with one in each hand. The left hand gets a controller with an analogue stick and d-pad, the right hand handles the one with a second analogue and the usual A, B, X and Y face buttons. Or you and a friend can use one each in multiplayer games with the d-pad doubling up as impromptu face buttons.
If you’re going to be taking your Switch on the go (and who isn’t?) then you probably want a good case to keep it protected. The Mumba Nintendo Switch case is a sturdy, rubber case that has a good grip to minimize the chance you’ll drop it. And should the unthinkable happen, the bumper is made of shock-handling thermoplastic polyurethane to keep your baby safe.
The Nintendo Switch launches today, the Japanese console maker’s first new system in four years. Here’s a list of brick and mortar and online retailers selling the Nintendo Switch, which has pricing at $399.99 CAD MSRP.
Nintendo Switch’s main component is the Switch Console, a tablet-shaped device that’s packed with cutting-edge hardware. Slide the Switch Console into the Switch Dock and you’ll enjoy a complete, high-definition gaming experience on your TV.
The Nintendo Switch is by far the most dissapointing Nintendo console they ever made. The lack of games is the biggest problem. There are very few games on the console and the best games , Zelda Breath of the wild and Mario Kart 8 are also available on the Wii U system which makes it even more useless. There is also many rports of problems with the stand and scratch made to the screen and problems with the controllers. I dont recommend buying this console unless you are a huge Nintendo fan.
Waterfield’s answer to the game case is an exquisite example of how you can look like a grown-up, but play like a kid. The Arcade Gaming Case is a beautiful designer bag made of full-grain leather (let me tell you, this leather feels so nice!) with a soft plush lining. It’s big enough to fit your Switch tablet (with the Joy-Cons detatched), a Hori Compact PlayStand, your Joy-Cons, all your necessary cables, and more. I managed to fit all of the above, plus my Mophie Powerstation XXL (which is a monolith itself) comfortably. It looks so good over your shoulder like a satchel, but also carries around briefcase style thanks to the leather handle on top.
When DOOM was first announced for Nintendo Switch we were genuinely blown away. We never imagined such a bloody, demanding shooter would makes its way onto Nintendo’s console. But here it is, and despite some visual compromises, it’s a great experience.
The Switch works exactly as advertised. Switching from console to handheld is seemless, easy, and games like Zelda are extremely impressive. As a console, the Switch is relatively capable but as a handheld it is a beast of a machine. Playing a game that looks as good as Zelda or Fast RMX in the palm of my hand is unreal. As a portable it outperforms anything else in its class. Battery life isn’t as bad as I thought it would be, clocking in at the same range as the PS Vita or 3DS XL. Great system with a lot of potential.
