No Pack-In Title at Launch
Nintendo announced what you’ll get inside the Switch box when you pick one up at launch, and strangely it doesn’t come with a free pack-in game. The last few Nintendo systems have had a tradition of giving purchasers one game that really shows off the capabilities of the new system.
That’s why it seems so odd that Nintendo didn’t immediately announced a free game that instantly comes with the Switch, something that 1-2 Switch looks perfect for. A party title with a fun twist that has you concentrating on other players instead of the screen – it’s a great way to show off what makes Switch special. The fighting games Arms could have been another good choice, as it requires the use of the Joy-Con controllers and could show off Switch’s graphical capabilities.
Maybe in the coming weeks Nintendo will announce a free download for all Switch purchasers, but at this point in time it doesn’t look like we’re getting a free game.
