The Nintendo Switch Revealed
In this episode:
- The Nintendo Switch
is unveiled! And being the Nintendo fans we are, there was just no
way that we could go a week without talking about it.
- Here’s what we know so far: It’s a
handheld system AND a home console with detachable controllers that
you can use in different configurations. They’re called JoyCons,
but there’s also a Pro Controller available. There is also a
spacer-thingy that connects the JoyCons into an almost-Pro
Controller. You can also use the JoyCons double-handed like a Wii
- There’s a kickstand on the main
screen and a 3.5mm headphone port! It’s HD and cartridge
- We saw lots of games for it including
a new 3D Mario game, a Mario Kart, some kind of basketball game
(that neither of us know about, but y’all might), Zelda: Breath of
the Wild, Splatoon, and Skyrim.
- And then we go into geeky-speculation
mode, which is always fun. We talk expandable storage (because Void
does all his games digitally), is there a touch screen (and do we
want one?), how long is the battery life, and just how useful is
the console dock? Do we get a charging cable?
- What about release day? Is this a day
1 purchase? Well, that depends on the price. If it’s a high-dollar
console, Nintendo may be in murky water. If it’s under $250,
there’s a huge chance we’ll buy it early.
