"Nintendo will continue to expand the console’s selection of titles with weekly eShop updates, with today bringing the first batch of downloadable games."
What an awesome library to headline your new system! Wait..... it's not 1992 anymore. Wtf?
She has blue hair though so it's cool.
Possibly transgender and playing retro games: even cooler.
No blue on one side and red on the other?
what do you mean? you don't like the retro style of 2d games......? There sure are allot of them on the PS4 and xb1 so they must still be popular.
Good comment, I hate irrational double standards that people put up just to slam a console they don't own.
I more don't like games that should be 99 cents being 8 dollars. Nintendo's e-shop has always had the worst prices of all the consoles.
Well at least it runs int 60 fps and it's all 4k !
Look at the PS4 launch lineup. I didnt use my damn ps4 for much other than resogun for almost a year. This fanboy nonsense is ridiculous on here lately. It is AMAZING how much people forget about system launches and how little comes with it on release. Switch comes with one of the best reviewed games of all time, but lets not acknowledge that because of some sort of bizarre obsession with another console.
I prefer Blaster Master Overdrive on wiiware to this Zero version. Then again, I can't play Overdrive on the 3ds.
I'm a switch owner, but even I find this article pathetic.
Every time I look at the Switch, I'm confused.
I turn it on and enjoy the heck out of over 30 hours now bro
I'm confused too, how can nintendo still exist, hardware-wise?
Because other than the Wii U, people have been buying the hell out of their hardware for the last ten years? I believe the 3ds has sold over 60 million. The DS and Wii, over 100 million if I remember correctly. The Switch, so far, is off to a great start, with seemingly lots of consumer interest.
Not for long @sir- they sold 100 million less Portables... They sold well over 80 million less consoles.... I don't know if you realize it but those numbers mean they're installed base of fans is shrinking extremely significantly . If this actually continues there no longer actually going to have a market to sell this Hardware to and they're likely going to have to go third party software only. Consider they are already putting games on IOS and Android. You have to consider your own numbers are showing a pattern of people moving away from their platforms, by enormous Millions. This needs to turn things around for this company in terms of bringing in new consumers that actually become established , for you might be looking at the last system they release. Do you really think about this company could keep wasting billions on Hardware people are not buying?
Because people are allowed to like other things besides what the majority wants them to like. I enjoy my switch for what it is, and I will also enjoy my pro for what it is. I guess its weird to be able to enjoy multiple things, you should try it.
@platformgamer.....if any of this stuff they say about Nintendo or SWITCH was true they wouldn't!!! You just asked a good question. I have a friend that was talking smack about Wiiu (we both have PS4 and xb1) I have the pro and a forza version of xb1. He said they should have a real console controller. I actually SHOWED him the wiiu pro controller. Fast forward 2 months later and he STILL thinks Wiiu had no real controller he forgot that fast. I blame it on people like the ones on this board repeated what they read.
Cool, but the only company able to monetize older games in a 100 different ways! Hopefully there won't be frame rate issues with these.
While they're at it, they should get those popular third party games
"The action game, inspired by the original NES Blaster Master from 1988, costs $9.99 " Enjoy your $380 console people!, x'D Big game developers/publishers or big game engines are like: "Da funk! ?, we invest high in our game developing company to create stunning games and then some console idiot creator come with us and ask us to join them for creating games looking like 30 years ago ?!, get FUNK out of here!"
On what planet is switch $380?
The same planet where they bitch about new Blaster Master games costing $10.
The switch comes out to $330 after tax and since Nintendo didn't put a pack in game with it you have to buy a game and there's only 1 game worth buying and that's $65 after tax so everyone pretty much has to pay $400 period
$321 is not 380. Also the system itself isn't. 380. You added a game. I preorder my games early so i only paid $321 ans some change. Also theres more than zelda for gamers that actually love simple fun. I have skylanders, shovel knight, bomberman, and getting I am Setsuna when i get home today
All these irrational double standards people dont say pro cost over 400 because of fracturing in taxes! Same for xb1 why only add taxes to SWITCH just to make it sound more expensive than it is. You dont add a second controller to ps4 or xb1 cost, so why add to SWITCH just to make them sound more expensive then it is. People don't add in the cost of a game to xb1, or ps4 so why add the cost to a SWITCH? Just to make it seem more expensive than it is compare apples to apples and bundles to bundles hypocrites.
Let me guess... more indie games that are on ps4/PC too and shitty games? bye bye switch
PS4 got a lot of irrational criticism when it launched because of Indie titles. Why be like the others and say the same thing about SWITCH? Don't become a monster from fighting one.

"We want a bigger variety of games to choose from!" *puts classics from other systems into the Eshop alongside great indies* "lol what's this old crap?! I can already pirate all this or get it somewhere else! Show me some exclusives!" *puts out exclusives like Bay 2 or Xenoblade* "lol wtf is this trash!? AAA third party multiplats are what I want! Current gen games, man!" *Gets a few recent third party titles, some of which are equal to or superior to other versions of their time such as Rayman Legends and Assassin's Creed 4* "LOL OMG SO UGLY LOOKING! Weak hardware, can't stand the controller, rehashed old IP's, trash trash trash trash TRASH! Show me some of the cool stuff, like my favorite steam games!" *puts indies up in the Eshop* "LOL why would I buy indies or third party here when I have Steam/PS4/XB1?! Show me some good stuff from the past! I want variety, damn it! Flesh out the Eshop with a thousand games now, now, now! It's 2017 Nintendo! TWEEEENTY SEVENTEEEEEN! Flip a switch and put everything good from way back when onto it, because filled out digital shops are where it's at!" *Adds in stuff like Metal Slug 3" "LAWL, I already emulated this crap years ago or bought it on a different shop, it should be free for me now after how many times I bought it everywhere else! It's not the 90's anymore, Nintendo! And I'm gonna blame you for the prices even on games that aren't yours because ten bucks is a wallet breaker! Whatever, put out some new games and new IP!" *Creates new IP like ARMS and Snipper Clips, then adds in new entries for great series like Xenoblade and Zelda* "HAHAHAHA, I'd rather play multiplats and exclusives elsewhere because Nintendo NEVER does anything even remotely good! Go third party Nintendo! Or better yet just die and sell everything to everyone else!" And here I am, watching this bullshit goalpost moving crap play out, just like above, year in and year out. smh. I'm going back to playing Binding of Issac and Fast RMX.
So everyone was wrong about WiiU? Riiight.
No, my point is that even if the Wii U had been perfect, some people are just NEVER F****** SATISFIED... This bullcrap is going to play out again on the Switch. Mark my words, even if ALL of its problems get fixed, goal posts will be moved just so certain sorts have something to whine about. Because Nintendo.
I'm glad you agree the WiiU was shit. Nintendo hasn't shown that anything will be different with the Switch. So, Nintendo doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt until they prove themselves.
lol try again
I brought my Switch to work this morning and we were all playing multiplayer in the breakroom on the tablet with the Joy cons split! you fanboys in the comments are not real gamers. How can you, as a gamer, not be excited to play badass SNK games like Shock Troopers, King of Fighters, and Metal Slug multiplayer with friends on the go sharing 1 system??
Is this a joke? It looks actually like a trolling article.
LMAO that pic,way to go with the hipster affiliation XD.
What a failed system. It had it chances if the docking station acted as the main processing unit for high demanding games and solid 60 to 30 fps 3rd party ports but no, the Switch is just another Vita. Honestly, the Switch is only a good upgrade from your 3DS , that's it, only a powerful handheld, just like the Nvidia Shield.
