Nintendo Switch Announced

Today it was just announced from Nintendo that the new Nintendo Switch will be releasing in US in 3rd March 2017 at the retail price of USD $299.99.

It was announced so far there is no region lock tho.

Here are what it is in the box.

Since this is a portable device when it is in portable mode, the power consumption was said to be between 2.5 to 6.5 hours battery life. So it really depend on what you are doing.
The console comes with 32GB of storage - extendable with a MicroSD card slot.

Multiplayer online gaming is given for free initially but later paid-for it which don't really work for me as I feel player paid the game, paid for their power and internet data plan.

There are also smartphone app for social aspects of games including chat function which not pretty sure it is something I would use or not.

Do note that the Joycon can be share for 2 players. So players can play 2 players  game out of box (you have to buy the game for that).

There are other color to choose from if you need to get other colors and here are the button of the Joycon

Personally what will make me buy a console are the pricing the quality of the game.  So far it was annouced The Legend of #Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, ARMS and
Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Among these games only 2 that I am kinda excited about.

With the pricing not certain in Singapore, I will wait for more quality game release that is suitable for handheld mode as ultimately this is a play and Go device is it not?

What do you think?

I will share more on Nintendo Switch here on this blog. Do follow me!
