First impression of the Nintendo Switch


I have had the Nintendo switch now for attest 24 hours. From what I have done on it, I feel confident in telling all of you all about it. After a week trying to remain cool about it, I can say that its been worth it. Even though it is in its launch, it feels like the new console. I have not had a main Nintendo console since the Wii. I am very hopeful about the Nintendo Switchs future.

Buying it in a deal with the game The legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild, it was cheaper compared to the PS4 and Xbox launch. Taking it out of the box, there was no need for instructions. With a quick charge, you are ready to start setting it up. Then either on the tablet or tv screen, it tells you what you need to do to set it up. After all the setting are done, make sure game is in and you can start playing almost immediately. Switch in out your joycons depending how you want to play.

I am going to do a review for The legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild very soon. So I will only say one or two things about it. The imagery in the game and console home screen is a huge upgrade. Its style looks like the next generation, more on the tv in 1080p compared to the handheld being 720p. Make sure you go through the Switchs settings to ensure that your tv is running on 1080p. The second thing is that is runs very smoothly.

The joycons/controllers work very smoothly as well. Can not wait untill I can get some multiplayer games on it and play it not on the tv anywhere with the joycons. unattached from the console, you get a lot of battery time. In my little test after a full charge, playing it for two and a half hours, it was about half charge left. So that’s potentially 5 hours that you can use it not on the tv!

I have heard rumours and seen a face mount attachment design for it. It is said to be the design to add virtual reality to the console. If that is true, then I am excited. Also with Pokemon Go being released last year, will they implement more augmented reality features in future games?

Thank god this is not a review, because it would be near impossible to give it a rating compared to all other video game consoles out there. Saying that tho, it could potentially become the best one out of pure innovation, creativity and beating all other consoles to the market with good quality features and tech. Two games that I will be getting for sure is Super Mario Odyssey and The new Pokemon game. Maybe even the new Smash when they release it most likely this year. I recommend this video game console to everyone that likes Nintendo and wants to experience a new level of gaming and potential gaming.
