Switch Week: Let’s Discuss the Nintendo Switch


The Nintendo Switch is blowing up our news feeds everywhere — here on WordPress, on Tumblr, and on Twitter, just to name a few. The presentation from Nintendo this past Thursday night (well, to us around here on the east coast of the US) was fantastic. There are definitely plenty of points about the Nintendo Switch that we’d love to share with you all!

There are so many, in fact, that we’ve decided to switch things up this week! (Get it? Did you see what I did there? …Sorry.) Anyway, Kris and I normally post individually, her on Mondays and Fridays, and me on Tuesdays and Thursday. We post together on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but since there’s a lot to talk about, and we don’t want our posts to get too repetitive, we’ve decided to have all of next week’s posts be together discussing various points and general thoughts about the Nintendo Switch.

Lucky you readers, right? Some of the highlights we want to discuss are the trailers for the games that were showcased, the mechanics of the console itself, the controllers, the prices of the Switch and games, the online subscription, just to name a few.

There was a lot jam-packed into that one-hour presentation and we have a lot to say about. We’re excited and skeptical about a few things, but mostly excited. We can’t wait to get our hands on this console.

Are you excited for the Nintendo Switch? What was your favorite part of the presentation? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. I have to say the best part for me was the Super Mario Oddesey reveal. It is the most interesting Mario I’ve seen since Mario 64. But the idea of paying for online with a handheld and having it require another device for social interaction….Is pushing me away.

    • Super Mario Odyssey reminded us of Sonic Adventure DX with the setting, but it doesn’t look too bad. I wasn’t a fan of the Galaxy series, so having another Mario with a hub world like Mario 64 doesn’t sound bad to me.

      The online subscription wasn’t exactly our favorite part either… Perhaps they’ll refine that aspect down the line?

      • I wonder if it’s due to them marketing as a home console rather than mobile. Microsoft and Sony also do paid subscriptions, to an extent (I’m honestly not as well versed about those companies), so Nintendo may be trying to keep up with them. I wouldn’t mind it if the price is reasonable and there’s enough of a benefit to it. Hopefully we’ll get more information in the future!

  2. My favorite part was discovering Breath of the Wild will indeed come out in March!

    I was not very impressed by the games that were announced. Mario Odyssey’s realistic scenarios looked out-of-place and Splatoon 2 does not seem to do a whole lot of different things when compared to the original (even if that’s a rather premature evaluation). But I am sure the system will receive awesome games down the line. Nintendo had to step things up with its launch titles, though.

    • We’re definitely trying to stay optimistic about the game lineup for the Switch. Mario Odyssey, honestly, reminded us of Sonic Adventure DX — pretty sure Sonic interacted in a world with humans and tall skyscrapers first. We shall see, though, won’t we? 🙂

  3. I’m very excited for the Switch, and Super Mario Odyssey was my favorite part! It’s a return to sandbox world platforming that I’ve wanted for over a decade. I’m excited for other games, of course, but Mario was the highlight of that presentation for me!
