The Switch is Nintendo’s bet in an area of gaming technology that never really caught along. A console which works great connected to a TV and be used as a personal portable gaming device usually results in significant compromises in design or processing capabilities. With the Switch, however, Nintendo is promising a smooth transition between physical gaming environments (hence the name “Switch”), all while playing fairly graphically intensive games.
There are three modes/styles of using the Switch:
2. Slide in the Joy-con controllers on the sides of the Switch and use it like a portable console.
3. With one controller in each hand, use the Switch’s display by using the integrated kickstand to make the console stand up on any flat surface.
You can also purchase the Nintendo Switch Pro gamepad if you find the in-the-box controllers uncomfortable.
And with that,
let’s talk games!
2. 1, 2, Switch - this game, developed in-house for the Switch, really showcases the multiplayer and Joy-con abilities of the new console. With two players facing each other (and not the screen), they can play games like a quick draw shooting game that uses the motion sensors and IR in the Joy-con to play the virtual battle.
3. Arms - Another new release, this game is a boxing game that takes advantage of the Joy-con controllers. It’s a high intensity active game that you can play with the computer or with a friend.
4. Splatoon 2 - paint the world more to win! Again, this game is powered by the Joy-con.
5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - this game will be available from day on the Switch, because it is the most anticipated game for the Switch undoubtedly. With a large Zelda fanbase, this might end up being a major selling point for the console.
In addition to these games, FIFA, Skyrim, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will also be coming to the Switch in this year.
