You need the best Nintendo Switch cases or covers you can buy. Don’t count on your Switch looking new for very long without one. Your Joy-Con controllers won’t look nice after a few weeks without a case either.
Let’s face it, the Zelda series was long overdue for a major change, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild offers an unparalleled sense of freedom and scale in the palm of your hand. It tells a an epic story, as glide, cook, and battle your way across a beautifully ruined version of Hyrule. It helped reinvigorate The Legend of Zelda in a way that fans had only dreamt of, easily propelling it to the number one spot on our list and in our hearts. – Zachary Ryan
The adapters that are included for when you snap out the joy controls and you want to share them with someone to play multiplayer are not that great. When you try to detach the adaptors (which is basically some plastic that makes the mini R and L buttons easier to use) it feels like you are going to break something because they attach too much to the joy controls. I wish they had thought of that when creating the design.
Some of us don’t want Wi-Fi getting in the way of our online gameplay, and while Switch doesn’t offer an Ethernet port in the tablet itself there’s a way to make sure you’re wired when connected to the dock.
The Nintendo Switch is gaining momentum with the role-playing game genre and has a promising future with over 50 third-party independent developers offering support. Like the days before it with previous Nintendo consoles, the Switch is on a journey to return to form, allowing for more role-playing games to its console. And there are already role-playing games released and lined up that are ready for any RPG enthusiast to dive into.
You can expect a series of characters to return from BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena, Under Night In-Birth, along with RWBY. Unfortunately, there’s no specific release date attached to the video game quite yet other than developers stating the game will launch at some point in 2018.
Lichtspeer takes place in a land rid with monsters, yet you are a champion who can channel the power of the Gods to take on enemies and restore balance to the universe. Grab your speer and restore your kingdom to it’s glory for just $7.
This is another Switch accessory that won’t be useful for many gamers, but very effectively solves a very specific problem. Don’t prop up your Nintendo Switch against a vase or another unsuitable piece of furniture. This stand will put your Switch at just the right angle for long hours of undocked gameplay. It has lots of rubber pads, prongs, and other anti-slip features to ensure it’s held in place well.
The pre-orders are gone, and the idea of a midnight launch is a little moot when so many locations are open 24 hours anyway. But the chain has confirmed that it will have units available for walk-in customers, although we haven’t been told how many units to expect at each location.
The Nintendo Switch absolutely represents the future of home consoles. I use the word “home” loosely, as what you have here is an extremely powerful portable unit as well. Out of the box, you’ll be surprised just how compact this unit really is. Set it up next to your TV and you’ll be saying “is that all?”. If you’ve owned other consoles in the past, you’ll know what I mean. You barely even see it. Add the small SD sized games, and even your storage needs for games is a tiny space. The unit with JoyCons attached feels solid in your hands. Separated with on the joining controller it also feels solid. Adults will note that the joycon fits a bit smaller in the hands, but you will quickly get used to it. The thing is, this is a console for all of the family, so having a controller that can be used by everyone is important. The Switch starts up fast, looks great on the screen (both TV and console), and does what it’s told when it is told. The simple interface on the console is a cinch for anyone to navigate. It will even start your TV up when you put the console on — without having to even set it up that way. Games look great no matter how you play. The internet connection is solid – never been an issue. Absolutely no regrets and a ton of fund playing Zelda and Imaginators. Can’t wait for more games – but to be honest these two will keep us going for awhile. No Netflix (yet) but I have it elsewhere. Would be nice though to take it on vacation – I imagine they will add it in the future. Love the Nintendo Switch! Rivals the NES as their best ever!!!!
The system has been out of stock for some time when it comes to pre-orders, but companies like Nintendo love that photo op with long lines of smiling fans waiting for their chance to buy the hardware, and we already know that some of the launch units are being held back for walk-in customers on the day of release.
Matches are incredibly fast-paced and satisfying, offering a tense competition that always feels fun and refreshing. You’ve also got a meaty solo campaign to dig into alongside a bunch of neat customisation options for your personal squid kid.
Nice graphics, an amazing launch title with The Legend of Zelda: BOTW and the possibility of more great titles from Nintendo. The perfect platform for indie games. It feels good in the hands when not using the controllers separately. It appears to be well built besides the screen fragility. However it does have some serious issues. The battery life is mediocre to terrible, the screen can be scratched from the dock, you can’t transfer saves, and the online functionality social aspect is very weak. Nintendo is terrible with anything to do with online functions besides downloading games or charging you money. The framerate in docked mode is worse in some games that it is in handheld mode.
