Nintendo Revolutionizes Gaming Technologies Again

Nintendo made the first release of its original Game Boy in 1989 and was a revolution in the gaming world. Gamers were no longer quarantined to their living rooms and the neighborhood. Long ride to Grandma’s home did not mean backseat solitaires or other plate games. Game Boy lets you play with your favorite titles anywhere.

It’s been 25 years since they created the mobile gaming market and now it’s time to shake the industry again. This time with Nintendo Switch

The all new Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch is a fully functional home and mobile console that bridges the gap between home gaming and gaming on the go. 

Bring your home console anywhere

I have fond memories of running the N64 emulator for playing Majora’s Mask with an Xbox controller on the train. Switch is a much easier solution for gaming from home in the wider world. From stationary to mobile, you only need to unhook console's screen from the dock.

Controller Has Four Different Configurations

The teaser shows at least four controller configurations for the best usage of the console. Two halves can be connected to a grip mount for standard home play. These can also be plugged into the sides of the console for configuration reminiscent of Wii U’s gamepad. When each half of the controller functions as a standalone controller, multiplayer gaming can be done. 

Few Questions Still Linger

The gaming console looks fantastic but there are still a few questions that remain unanswered.


About the Battery Life: Such gaming console would need enough battery life for the mobile LED screen and a processing power to run Skyrim. 


Exclusive titles: We have seen glimpses of games being played on the Switch like Splatoon, Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and even 3D Mario but no concrete revelations have been made about the potential launch titles or Switch exclusives. 


The Nintendo Switch would be out in the sweet spring air of March 2017.
