G’Day Gamer Gals & Guys!
On yesterday’s blog, we covered the battle between the XBOX One & the PS4!
Who DO YOU think wins the battle for 2017?
Before you answer that question…
We have a whole new contender in the mix!
He is set to complete his fight training by March 3rd of this year; and is due to hit the ring with all the newest games by Holiday 2017.
Yup, I’m talking about – The NINTENDO SWITCH!
So let’s find out what all the hype is about!!
The Nintendo Switch is being promoted as the newest console that you can not only play at home but also play on the go!
As a home video game console you can, of course, connect it to your tv to play games..but what sets it apart – is that you can remove it from the dock – get up and go!
And when you attach the new JOY-CON consoles, you can play anywhere.
The “Switch” is really designed to let you play games when & where ever you want!
Let’s go over the different modes of the NINTENDO SWITCH:
TV MODE – playing games the traditional way, on your television.
TABLETOP MODE – the Switch comes with a stand on the back! When you prop up the stand and attach the Joy-Con controllers, you can play in tabletop mode with yourself or a friend!
HANDHELD MODE – attach the Joy-Con controllers to the console and you can not only enjoy, but also bring it with you, wherever you go!
Battery life ranges from 2.5 hours to 6 hours, depending on the game. You can play while charging with the USB Adapter.
The Nintendo Switch has a progressive touch screen and will connect over wifi for multiplayer and local multiplayer gaming!
Up to 8 consoles can be connected for local multiplayer over wi-fi!
So now you know the specs..but what games can we expect for this year’s launch?
I will put a short list below with their expected release dates.
The Legend Of Zelda – Breath of the Wild – Available March 3rd
1, 2, Switch – Available March 3rd
MARIO KART 8 DELUXE – Available April 28
*And the rest of this list’s release date is TBD…
Super Mario Odyssey
The Elder Scrolls v – SKYRIM
EA SPORTS FIFA
So what do you gamers think?
What has you more excited, the gameplay and console features, or the games themselves?
Did anyone notice a few games on there that you wouldn’t expect for a Nintendo Console?!
I want to know your thoughts!
Are you going to “Switch & Play” the NINTENDO Switch?
If so, are you getting it in the spring or will you wait until the holiday season for the new games?
Whatever you do… Don’t “Switch” off of this blog! 🙂
Stay tuned tomorrow because we are always covering the latest and greatest of gaming!
See you then!
