The Nintendo Switch finally got a more detailed reveal after a seemingly eternal wait since its introduction back in October. Now that we’ve seen more of what it is, what it can do, and what games we can expect in the coming year, does it stand a chance in 2017?
It’s no secret that there’s a lot riding on the success of the Nintendo Switch. The Wii U was a relative failure, especially when compared to its competition. What’s more, the competition is upgrading to be able to render better graphics and larger games. That means Nintendo can’t just rest on its laurels (which have long since expired) and do what it has always done. While going for style over power is charming, more is needed to survive in the current generation, at least from the hardware side.
The Nintendo Switch Event was a chance for the company to show exactly what they have in store, but all may not have been what was expected. Let’s break it down.
