Behold: the Nintendo “Switch” has arrived 

Written by | Gaming, Japan, News, Nintendo, Opinion

Yes Nintendo, it’s time for a Switch.

The grueling wait is finally over….

After all the speculation, rumors, and fake images, the Nintendo Switch has officially been unveiled by Nintendo!!

We at ComedyNGaming are extremely hype!!! We’ve all been waiting for this moment for such a long time and it’s finally here.

Now that is sleek

Let me just start by saying WOW, that’s all I was thinking whilst watching the reveal trailer. It first starts out with some Breath of the Wild gameplay and then we see the console itself. I must say the Switch is a rather beautiful looking console, it’s has a very polished and sophisticated look to it.

Looks like they listened when I called for a normal controller (lol jk)

The controller for the console resembles something you would use to play Xbox (not that we’re complaining) and it looks like the console does actually feature a detachable option to take your games on the go. This is my initial response to the trailer so keep in mind that I’ve only seen it once, but it sort of looks like you can take the screen off of the console to make it mobile. It’s still unclear whether the system uses discs or not though there was a point in the trailer where you can see someone inserting a cartridge into the console while in mobile form. Not sure if it’s backwards compatible either but there was some gameplay of Splatoon and Mario Kart. There was also gameplay of what appears to be a 3-D Mario game and Skyrim. I think the name change was a great move, probably the biggest dilemma with the Wii U was it’s name. Many people even to this day just think it’s an add on for the original Wii. “Switch” is a clear cut name that describes exactly what the console does and hey it’s pretty catchy too!

Now watch me switch, and watch me play games (*switch dance coming soon*)

Sleek. Revolutionary. Nintendo. What  More?

I personally like the idea of the Nintendo Switch. It is just another example of how original Nintendo really is and I believe the Switch will undoubtedly be a force to be reckoned with this generation. There is still much information we are yearning for, such as what exactly we should be expecting from the console as a whole. The whole gaming world has their eyes on Nintendo once again. Only time will tell if the Switch is actually any good, but I truly do have faith that it will be.
