The Nintendo Switch: What is it?

October 20, 2016 Conor 0

Nintendo seem to have learned their lesson from the announcement of the WiiU. Where that announcement was a bloated, feature filled exercise in justifying its own existence, and the Console suffered from a confusing brand name that didn’t help. The Switch looks different. The Switch is Different.

Pokémon Sun and Moon kick things off, with new announcements including the reveal of Alolan Rattatta (Dark/Normal), who have adapted to avoid being hunted by Yungoos. So actual natural selection in a Pokémon game.

Nintendo’s November Mini NES Gamble. 

July 14, 2016 Conor Caulfield 0

As of today, Nintendo has announced a Mini NES micro console, releasing on November 11th and coming bundled with 30 games and a controller. America has a price of around $60, so barring the pound falling any further, I’d have wagered a £40-50 price tag.

Spring Nintendo Direct

Directly to you. Through me. So shall we try that again? No Pokemon to steal the show this time. Nintendo Direct for the 3rd of March 2016, covering all the games of spring and summer. Presumably this will be taking us right up to E3 and the NX announcement. Speaking of which, no news here. They’re holding off on that, even more so than expected. This does mean that if we don’t hear too much about Zelda WiiU here, I’ll be putting more faith in those rumours about the NX and the double platform launch.
