So, here we are!
After months and months of rumors, speculations and theories, finally the new Nintendo console was unveiled today in a 3-minutes trailer on Nintendo website. Check it out:
The name fo the new project is Switch, and this is the meaning of the idiot wordplay in the title.
The first impression was “Wow, all this stuff together?”. Switch is not a home console nor a handheld: is both. So all the people that rumored that the former NX could have been a home console were wrong as all the people that suggestet that the new Nintendo could have been a portable. Or maybe they wer both right.
After realizing that Switch is more than a common console a couple of questions went through my head.
First: could it be a good thing to have a mix of home/portable console?
I mean sometimes when you have an item that can do a lot of things it’s highly propable that it cannot do all the things in the best way possible. Mayne the big N found out the squaring of the circle and I reeeealy hope so since in March 2017 I will be in front of the store to purchase my own personal Switch.
Second: Is the new switch a bit awkward?
It’s wonderful that with Switch you can do almost everything (maybe) but the design seems a bit, how can I say, “heavy” maybe? Look at the console itself: it looks like a small overnight bag, while the controllers when they’re put together look like a dog face with ears down.
However, these are just two stupid questions: if the Switch will mantain all the things he promised I’m sure it will be another big revolution made by the japanese firm.
Now we all have to wait until March 2017…
