5 Reasons You Should Be Excited About the Nintendo Switch

When the Switch launched, it did so to mixed reactions. Within the first year, though, Nintendo proved it wouldn't make the same mistakes that it did with the Wii U. Gfycat takes a look at five reasons why the future of the Switch is exciting and could appeal to a larger market.

I refuse to jump on board until Nintendo fixes the glaring flaws

If you want a Switch to play some awesome games, then you don't have to worry. If you are expecting it to do much more than that, then maybe it's not for you.

Some amazing titles released already for this thing and we are just over 6 months in.

carmelo43282d ago

What are those amazing title's you speak of

Kun_ADR282d ago


BOTW, Mario Kart, Splatoon 2, Mario+Rabbids. Soon we'll have Fire Emblem Warrior, Mario O, and Xenoblade 2.

And I only picked out the best one. There are still even more including indie games.

MrFisher21282d ago (Edited 282d ago )

I agree. Now that homebrew has been confirmed to run on the Switch. May be time to get one used that was stolen.

PeaSFor282d ago (Edited 282d ago )


I only have 3 games on my switch: Zelda:Botw, MK8 Deluxe and Mario Kingdom Battle.

I find them "amazing".

So, u mad brah?

EDIT: Oh and im also hyped for Octopath Traveller.

It's not quite what I'd like it to be for the price.
Zelda is fantastic.
Skyrim handheld sounds like a dream.
THE indies look good.
THat with Mario isn't quite enough for me not to wait.
I'd like a $300 bundle
That's what I'm waiting for

If fallout 4 is released before then, I might jump in

dougr282d ago

I bought one of these, you really gotta understand what it is your buying. I bought it not for third party titles, I already have a ps4, I bought it for your typical Nintendo franchises. I do wish it had apps like netflix, hulu, etc, and hopefully those are coming, but overall this system is 1000X better than the Wii U, I hated that system, but actually like the switch a lot. I bought Zelda and Mario Kart with it and am waiting for SM:O. One thing is the Joy Con controllers, the buttons are to close to the joy stick, it's really uncomfortable for me to use, I'll have to get a pro controller.

mcstorm282d ago

I'm with you on the switch is better than the wiiu but for me the wiiu was also underrated it had some of the best games from last gen (Xbox one/PS4) as it started off fast with some great games but then was dropped just as fast.

I do feel the wiiu should of been what the switch is but I do wonder if Nintendo had to make the wiiu to then design the switch.

Theknightofnights282d ago

Well, you'll be missing some good games. Hopefully Nintendo fixes whatever issues you have with the system though.

If you haven't jumped on bored, meaning you don't own one, then how are you knowledgeable about these "glaring flaws" you refer to ?

Could it possible be that people just write and talk about the "problems" because it generates clicks, and people like you fall for it?

Yes it's not perfect, but no console or handheld is.

Switch is even starting to get some real solid 3rd party support and the indie games it's getting aren't trash either...they are high quality.

deafdani282d ago

You don't need to own a Switch to know that its online implementation is horrible, that it doesn't have cloud saves, that everything you purchase is tied to your account, which is tied to the machine. You don't need to own it to know that for some unfathomable reason, friend codes are back (despite the fact that Wii U didn't have them)...

That data is easily reachable using simple Google searches. All of these are glaring flaws, stupid shit that this console shouldn't have.

I own the Switch and I love it despite all those flaws, but what the dude above said is perfectly reasonable. You're wrong, pal.

I'm already excited since it's finally getting another console Pokemon game and isn't a spin-off .

prankster101282d ago

Nah... Not excited at all about a bunch of has-beens and their latest offering.

Jaypi03282d ago

Those "Has beens" have been in the biggest games to release this year.

prankster101282d ago

I assume by "biggest", you mean blockbuster appeal? Like FIFA? Destiny? CoD? Assassins Creed?

Oh wait, you're talking about Zelda. That is just ONE game.

Ok then... Mario. Not out yet. Anything else? Thought not.

Istolla282d ago

Well Prankster it does have FIFA. But I'm pretty sure he's referring to best selling titles.

MrFisher21282d ago

Lmao. Any mobile phone can run these games. Come on now.

deafdani282d ago

If by Blockbuster appeal you mean sales... take a look at Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, ARMS, and Zelda. All of them sold past 1 million units on their first month (or even their first week).

I got a Switch, been enjoying it for the most part along with my PC, lastest game I got on it is "Golf Story" pretty funny little indie, hyped for Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Switch is having a pretty damn good year so far, hoping Nintendo can keep up the momentum into 2018.

Kun_ADR282d ago

If you love Golf Story then you need to buy Stardew Valley immediately. You won't be able to put it down.

ibrake4naps282d ago

What do you do in stardew valley? Just farming stuff?

282d ago
instantstupor282d ago

How far have you gotten in Golf Story? I've gotten to the point where I have to bring turtles back to the lake in order to play the second course and be able to continue the game. I have literally no idea where to go at this point and I can't really find any info online about it. I'm guessing I'm missing something super straightforward, but if anyone sees this and can give me a hand, I'd appreciate it! :-)

instantstupor282d ago

Disagreeing with asking for help? That's new lol.

Jaypi03281d ago

Sorry for the late reply, I think you have to walk up to the turtle and interact with them if I remember correctly, I believe they're in all 3 areas of the region. Sorry I can't be more specific i kinda forgot what to do since I passed it.
