What’s New Nintendo – Nintendo Switch That Is

Last Saturday, my son and I were some of the first people to try the Nintendo Switch  the new home video game system at the Nintendo Switch Event.

I knew there was a buzz about the Nintendo Switch and quickly understood why was a buzz about the next portable console as we played the games.

These ease and smooth feel while playing was perfect.  I was not very good at the games, but I was comfortable while doing so.

We played and saw The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and others.

Throw an impromptu party anywhere with anyone thanks to a new play style in which players look at each other—not the screen!

Each game takes advantage of the Joy-Con controller features of the Nintendo Switch system in different ways. While the action unfolds off- screen, the audience watches the players themselves instead of the screen. That makes it as hilarious to watch as it is to play – an instant party amplifier!

My son and I played together and with two other players.  As I continued to make us loose every game, my son partnered with another player.   I was so bad someone suggested I try the retro games.  Unlike me, my son played all of the games like a pro.  He was hopping from one game to the next.

In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.

At home the system rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which lets you play with family and friends on a TV in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock at any time, the system instantly transitions to handheld mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its 6.2-inch screen, which displays bright, high-definition gameplay at the park, on an airplane, in a car, or at a friend’s apartment.

I may have lost in every game but my competitive side would not allow me give up and I wanted to learn all of the games.  I did not quit get it right and now I want a Nintendo Switch.  Whether you are a gamer or not you will you will want one of these gaming systems.  I like the look, the capabilities and the games.  When I get one I will definitely have guest over for game night.
