Top 5 Best Things About Nintendo Switch
Not everything is bad about this system… Its actually pretty good in somethings.
Most release date predictions seemed to veer towards the end of March, either March 24th or 31st, considering how uncharacteristic it is for a console’s ship date to be unveiled this close.
However, Nintendo shocked us all by announcing that it will in fact land on March 3rd, barely a month-and-a-half from now, meaning fans at least won’t have to wait long at all to get their hands on the tech.
One can certainly argue that Nintendo should’ve delayed the platform until it could present a more favourable launch line-up, but after the Wii U dive-bombed so hard, fans really need this as soon as possible.
Splatoon 2 is coming this summer! Most of the leaks and rumours pointed to Splatoon being ported from the Wii U to the Switch, so seeing a legit sequel was a very pleasant surprise indeed.
Sure, it’ll probably basically be more of the same but with new weapons and stages, but Nintendo have at least promised a ton of new content after launch and special timed events just as with the first game.
Given the immense success of Splatoon, at least Nintendo mostly got this right, though not making it a launch title was a colossal mistake.
One of Nintendo’s most-despised practices is their tendency to region-lock hardware, making it impossible to import and play titles from other regions.
Finally, however, Nintendo have relented and “revised” their policy, making the Switch region-free so that gamers can play whatever region titles they want.
Considering the nature of the global market and the Internet helping close up our geographical borders these days, it’s about damn time Nintendo stopped drawing these arbitrary lines, even if they’re incredibly late to the party on this one.
