Nintendo Switch Console

New York Times review:

“The hottest video game console this year is also the smallest and most portable. The Nintendo Switch boasts exclusive games, remakes of cult classics and a portable style that’s great for travel.”

Featured in New York Times’ 2017 Gift Guide.

The Guardian review:

“Multi-use games system (use on the TV, or on the go) complete with the most addictive game ever.”

Featured in The Guardian’s Best Gifts of 2017.

LA Times review:

“The Switch, Nintendo’s newest console, lets players control their favorite Italian plumber at home or on-the-go. Trouncing the success of the Wii U, its predecessor, the Switch has met with positive reviews from fans.”

Featured in Los Angeles Times’ Best Gifts of 2017.

GQ review:

“The Switch is, hands-down, the most exciting thing in video games right now. Less than a year out, and it’s got games that are stone-cold classics (like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) with countless more on the way.”

The Nintendo Switch is the latest gaming console that seals the interstice between handheld gaming and your living room.

Differing from the functionalities of the PlayStation Vita that is bound to run games only from a PlayStation console, the Switch has an inbuilt or portable screen with fancy Joy-Con controllers that can be attached to the sides. This makes it a completely portable solution for your home gaming console. And this is exactly what gives the Switch extreme uniqueness when compared to the likes of the premium X box one and PS4. 

Now you can play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild anywhere you like: by sitting on your couch or swinging on your hammock on the porch. In fact, this gaming console resembles a much more attractive and thinner Wii U Gamepad. It also comes with a directional pad and standard ABXY buttons.

Another USP of the Switch is that this is completely region-free, which means you can import international games from any part of the world, irrespective of their original selling location. Nintendo’s cornucopian decision to do away with this previously stringent norms have paved the way for accessibility to a considerable number of games at a global scale.

Docking and undocking are way too easy, without any kind of hindrance during mid-game without pausing.  All that it takes is just a second for you to switch the display between your TV and tablet screen, thereby making it a perfect choice of gift this Christmas.
