Imagine you had a handheld that held the power of a console inside of it, but still maintained its portable form-factor. Maybe you had higher hopes for other portable consoles or maybe you wanted something more out of your Nintendo handheld. The latest and quite possibly greatest system from Nintendo yet and that is the Nintendo Switch. Note that this will not be a review of the actual system, just my impressions so far of the console.
One thing that smacks me in the face is just how much the system meets what I have always longed after. Growing up I was overly fond of the Nintendo GameBoy Color and that was the system for me. Not to mention it was the only system I had for a long while until I got the Nintendo 64 system. Still, nothing beat the ability to take my GameBoy Coloron the road with me for endless amounts of fun. While the future handheld that I got were good, they could never beat the quality of a console.
The Nintendo Switch is surely that and so much more. It feels like a system that is both familiar, friendly, fun and unlike anything we have witnessed in the market thus far. Sure, Nintendo always walks a path that is less than travelled and they do stumble. Still, that isn’t to say that this console ha snot seen superfluous success during it’s first year of circulation. With mad pre-order dashes to on-going supply and demand issues, the Switch is one hot cookie.
For good reason too. It just works. From the great tablet experience to the console experience. It just feels like it is finally the best of both worlds. Now yes, we will still see some support on the DS line of systems. This does remain to be seen as the push for the Switch is something that Nintendo hasn’t done for any console in recent memory. They want the system to succeed and their advertising is testimony towards that. Frankly it has worked and worked well; quite possibly too well… It sure has the market running around in a tizzy trying to find ones that have yet to be picked up or claimed.
Now yes the system is lacking in diverse content due to just only being 6 months old. The system has time to grow and build up its library and It is frankly on the right footing, it just has to fight to keep those third parties under its belt of influence.
