Greetings gamers! It’s March 2017 which means it’s time to celebrate! Not only do we have ten new games released this month, we have a whole new platform! The Nintendo Switch debuts this week on Friday, March 3rd!
Let’s take a closer look!
The Switch is Nintendo’s seventh home console and is a clear successor to the Wii and Wii U. It’s a hybrid of ideas, featuring both a docked TV connected use mode and a portable, touchscreen enhanced use mode. What does that mean?
When it’s docked it functions much like your existing consoles, complete with wireless motion sensing controllers.
When it is undocked you can place it on a table and still use the controllers wirelessly, or the controllers can be attached to either side of the touch screen and you can use it like any other portable gaming system.
This new design is bold and ambitious, and is sure to create some interesting new gameplay experiences. The Switch will be available in stock in limited quantities on Friday March 3rdy for $399, be at your local store when it opens to get yours!
