Also, unlike some other cases, the Hori Tough Pouch strikes a gentle balance between protection and convenience. Because you only put your Switch into it when you’re done playing, it doesn’t change how you grip the console or its Joy-Con controllers.
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…
One of the top selling points of the Nintendo Switch is its ability to easily transform from a traditional gaming console into a handheld, portable one. You can dock your unit to access HD gaming on your television screen, or you can play anywhere by switching to handheld mode.
Editors’ note: This article was first published on January 12, 2017 and has since been updated. We’ll be updating this piece as the Switch is restocked or when new information is released, so stay tuned!

The gaming console itself has amazing graphics for Zelda anyways, be curious to see the other games that are due out. My only concerns are the lack of games that were ready at launch date as Zelda was the only title launched the same day. Also we have only played our console 4 times not consecutively, now our console won’t turn on at all. Tried taking it out of the docking station and charging it that way and even moved it to different locations within the house. Went into Best Buy and was told we need to ship it out to Nintendo and they will repair it and send it back. Disappointed the system only lasted 4 days before not working.
Imagine Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots on steroids, and you’ll have a pretty clear picture of what it’s like to play Arms. As its name implies, the game is all about your character’s arms and how you use them. The fighting game includes a roster of brawlers equipped with spring-loaded extendable arms that are used to pound enemies in a variety of ways. Each type of arm brings its own advantage: certain arms are capable of dealing multiple shots at once, while curved arms can be helpful for cornering opponents. Arms puts the Joy-Con’s motion controls to excellent use, although the game is plenty fun when played as a more traditional fighting title too.
[Breath of the Wild is] a fresh approach to what Zelda games have striven for since the very beginning. The depth you expect, the open exploration and constant sense of discovery the series is known for, are here in perhaps greater effect than ever before, but with the systems and mechanics that drive the moment-to-moment action heavily overhauled. The result is a Zelda that feels unmistakably like a Zelda, but that also breathes new life into the venerable classic.
It’s nowhere near the control you get with a full-blown racing wheel, but the Joy-Con Wheel gives you a more hands-on approach to Mario Kart or other racing games, which is wonderful if your Switch is often being played by younger gamers. This set includes two wheels, so you can get right to the track with a friend or family member.
If you’ve been playing a lot of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with friends, you’ve probably already discovered that using a single Joy-Con horizontally starts to hurt your hands pretty fast. Myriann makes a cover for your Joy-Con controllers that make them more like a mini version of the Grip for each side. The horizontal design make it easy for you to access the L and R buttons, which is important for drifting and throwing items in Mario Kart Deluxe 8.
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.”
Nintendo’s new console is also better suited for entertaining children and guests that may not be as interested in video games. The Switch’s JoyCon controllers can detect motion like the Wii’s remotes, opening up possibilities for more casual party games. The best example of this so far is 1,2 Switch, Nintendo’s launch title for the console, which requires players to compete in wacky challenges against one another using the JoyCon remotes.
Super Mario Kart has always been a staple of Nintendo’s consoles, and there are plenty of reasons to pick up the latest installment for the Switch even if you’ve played Super Mario Kart 8. The Deluxe version introduces new characters like the Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy from Splatoon and an updated Battle Mode that includes new gameplay styles. Combine that with smaller updates like the ability to hold two items at a time and play with others without an extra controller, and you’ve got a game that substantially differentiates itself from its predecessor.
“The machine can be used both as a home console and handheld device so the higher price is understandable to some extent, but there aren’t really enough software titles to justify that start price,” he said.
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.
Managed to snag one of these in store on the first day, along with Zelda and switch 1-2. In mobile mode or working like a tablet, it is excellent – with amazing graphics, excellent controls. Docked and connected to a TV is also excellent. Beware that because of the way the controllers attach and detach, there are a couple of detachable cover pieces that you will need to take care of or risk losing. Overall, it looks like Nintendo has a winner with this one.
Connect to your TV using the supplied Nintendo Switch dock or immediately transform your console into an on-the-go handheld featuring a 6.2 inch screen with multi-touch capabilities. Enjoy a full home-console experience no matter where you are.
Born out of Harvest Moon, it makes perfect sense that Stardew Valley fits right at home on the Switch. The farming life sim is wonderfully open ended, letting you forge your own country path with fishing, fighting, farming, and falling in love. Additionally, being able to take advantage of the Switch’s sleep mode helps take some of the pressure off of not being able to save in the middle of a day, even if a few other bugs in the port are still waiting to be squashed here. – Tom Marks
The Nintendo Switch is finally here and you know what that means; it is time for great games.

If you want to get the most out of your NBA game, grab the Legend edition gold, which comes with 250,000 VC, 40 MyTEAM Packs, Shaq digital items for your MyPLAYER, and more. This is all you could ask for out of this game for $83.
This is the cheapest Nintendo Switch bundle we’ve seen that comes with a game. In all honesty though, Sonic Forces forces is pretty average and the extra $20 is more than worth it for the likes of Zelda or Mario instead. If you’re buying a Switch bundle as a present, this could be one to avoid. Loyal Sonic fans on the other hand may want to take a look. Then buy Sonic Mania instead.
The Nintendo Switch has a list price of $300, AU$470 or £280. There’s only one color option for the console itself, but the attached Joy-Con controllers come in gray, or a more colorful option with one neon blue and one neon red.
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.
For all intents and purposes, this is classic Bomberman. You run around a maze dropping bombs, all the while trying to avoid getting caught in the subsequent explosions caused by both yourself and your opponents.

When it’s time to head out and meet your friends, simply slide the Switch gaming system out of the dock and take it with you on the go. If you want to take on your buddy in your favourite game, place the Switch on a table top and detach the wireless joycon contollers from each side to start your multiplayer game!
“If you haven’t pre-ordered Nintendo Switch, quantities will be limited. So be sure to head out to a local Best Buy store ahead of time to snag your spot in line,” the company stated. “The console will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Just like on Black Friday, our stores will have a ticketing process for customers waiting in line. We will only pass out as many tickets as we have consoles available, with a limit of one per customer.”
A wonderful-looking platformer with a clever concept. It’s based around paint that is splattered around each stage by various guns and gizmos. Each colour affects your character differently; you can climb walls covered in red paint and bounce off yellow paint, for example. Combine that with a water gun used to trigger switches and collect special gold-flaked paint for bonuses, and the result is a brilliantly creative platform game that plays like an unlikely mix between Super Meat Boy and Splatoon.
It’s not the usual Nintendo game, but The Binding of Isaac is a platformer that older gamers will love to play on the big screen or on the go. Throw in this accessory pack and you’ve got a Nintendo Switch bundle that gets you a neat saving of just under £40.
GameStop often sells custom Switch bundles of its own, many of which toss in extra games and accessories for the same price as buying them all separately. On the plus side, these bundles tend to be more readily available than the console by itself. But if you just want the console and a game, also check to make sure the game you want isn’t on sale. For instance, one of the Switch’s most iconic games — Super Mario Odyssey — is currently on sale for $54.98 at Amazon.
TOKYO — Nintendo Co Ltd on Friday priced its first in about four years above market expectations, disappointing investors and clouding its prospects of winning back gamers who have shifted from consoles to smartphones.
