Though it may have come out the starting blocks a little threadbare – albeit with one HELL of a shining crown jewel in the form of Breath of the Wild – the Nintendo Switch has only gone from strength to strength. Rolling together the experimental motion controls of the Wii with the portable tablet nature of the Wii U Gamepad, the Switch is easily the most ‘fashionable’ and coolest of everything on the market right now.
And for good reason. Its library is an enjoyable bevy of indie games mixed with the occasional big-budget gem like Mario Kart 8, though the primary feature is of course, playing any game you’d associate with a larger screen in your lap instead.
Now we’re on the other side of E3, it’s clear Nintendo roundly trounced the competition, unleashing sought-after announcement after sought-after announcement, the landscape for the Switch’s future almost being reminiscent of the quickfire release schedule of the SNES.
From shooters to platformers, RPGs to sports, Nintendo have planted their seeds in just the right places, and it’s going to be a joy to watch them grow.
