Nintendo Switch 2nd Anniversary

Here’s How Nintendo Is Celebrating the Switch’s 2nd Anniversary (And Xbox Joins the Party in Sweden)

Today the Switch celebrates its second anniversary on the shelves, and Nintendo is celebrating on social media.

Nintendo of America just posted a celebratory tweet with most of its popular characters, asking fans what games they’re playing today.

Nintendo of Europe adopted a birthday theme, with a delicious-looking cake with strawberry, cream, and JoyCon candles. This was echoed by the accounts of every national branch of the company in the Old Continent.

Interestingly, the love story between Nintendo and Microsoft seems to be continuing in unexpected places, as the Swedish arm of Microsoft’s game business quoted its local counterpart’s tweet with two hearts, one red and one green. Could there be a fire brewing under the embers?

They also doubled down on the celebration with a message with more hearts and cake mentioning “Happy Birthday Nintendo Switch. You have so many great games, but we mainly like the games that we can play with you.”

It’s starting to get warm and cozy here.

Of course, this is also the second anniversary of the release of the ultra-popular The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of the Wild.

The British branch of Nintendo celebrated with a nostalgic trailer.

On the other hand, the folks handling the market in Australia and New Zealand had a more “natural” approach.

I am not afraid to admit that I have been skeptical of Nintendo’s hybrid console and of its potential in the beginning, but its success and a few of its games certainly proved me wrong, so Happy Birthday, Nintendo Switch!
