An extremely skeptical to a hybrid game console Nintendo Switch when it was announced at the end of 2016. Looks like a tablet with a detachable controller the console has caused a lot of issues, and in terms of iron was not able to compete with the powerful PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, in the short period from March to December 2017 it sold more than 10 million boxes worldwide, what struck many experts in shock.
Nintendo Switch is in fact the first in the gaming industry device that allows you to play your favorite games on your TV (via convenient dock) and take them with you wherever you go: on a walk, to work, to travel and so on. Another great feature of the console is the ability to use it as a small TV and cooperative games of two players, each of which takes up one detachable controller. In fact, Nintendo has managed to combine in one device several, and to do it gracefully and inexpensively.
Given that the start of sales of Nintendo Switch in March 2017 cost $ 299, we can assume that the Japanese manufacturer will gradually reduce the price to remain competitive. But this is not necessary, because the Switch literally sweeps the shelves of stores worldwide. In Russia much hype around the console. So historically in our country: Nintendo for some unknown reason, many people consider childish, preferring bloody shooters coming out on older consoles Sony and Microsoft. And a very good reason.
Nintendo Switch is very versatile in terms of releasing games for it. Here you and AAA masterpieces like the adventure game the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and a great, innovative platformer Super Mario Odyssey, and wonderful arcade racing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and unusual fighting ARMS, and the coolest Japanese RPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (I will tell you very soon in your review). And I have listed only the hits of the production of most Nintendo. On the console out great games, third-party developers like the reissue of L. A. Noire new FIFA action series Bayonetta, the new Doom, Wolfenstein and other wonderful projects. And all this you can take with you wherever you go!
The leadership of Nintendo is very proud of his achievements. Because their previous console the Wii U hardly can be called successful. Of difficulties at the start and lack of major hits during the five years of its existence, it sold a modest circulation of 13.5 million boxes. A switch has reached $ 10 million in just 9 months. Impressive results, isn’t it? In the land of the rising sun console today in such short supply that people buy lottery tickets to get the chance to buy imagine this console. In a queue to stand in front of the shops are simply useless.
Given that the popularity of hybrid consoles eventually subsides, but only grows, with it grows and the cost of Nintendo shares. The company has already informed the fans that in 2018 they have a powerful lineup consisting of big AAA-games and dozens of projects of smaller rank. Among the already announced games – platformer Kirby and Yoshi series, highly popular among adults and children. Announcements of new games scheduled for early 2018. Most likely, their plans Nintendo will tell immediately after the holidays.
