The key selling point of the Nintendo Switch is its myriad of playstyles. Mario Kart 8 may be a port of the Wii U version with a few upgrades, like the return of Balloon Battle, but it's also important to keep in mind how few may have played the game. What's more, Breath of the Wild is certainly a console-seller and is enough to entice many to purchase the Switch on day one.
"We're impressed with the hardware on offer with the Nintendo Switch - with some occasional frustrations".
There are plenty of Nintendo Switch features that make the console worth investing in. Citing "some digging" through unnamed sources, the site says it "heard. the cost of manufacturing a Nintendo Switch game is higher than the cost of making a PS4, PC or Xbox One game, because the cartridges the Switch uses cost more to make than Blu-ray discs". "We've enjoyed the Switch - and absolutely adore Zelda - but Nintendo still has some work to do". On Switch, Fast RMX ditches the temporal upscaling technique entirely and instead makes the jump to an adaptive resolution feature, where the game dynamically adjusts rendering resolution based on GPU load. You're able to play the latest games from Nintendo and a refreshed line-up from its partners.
The Wii U was trapped, tethered to your TV, and Nintendo's second-screen gimmick (which was both a mistake and, at times, really great) was hidden from the world, tucked behind a bad and confusing name.
The second hiccup comes in Nintendo's continued use of Miis, which haven't been redesigned or received any update since the days of the Nintendo Wii. Thankfully, it's a much more exciting proposition for players: home console-quality gaming on the go. We'll see how it holds up when the more graphically intensive games start coming out, but for now, what we're seeing looks great.
While the release isn't an entirely new game (we reviewed it previously here), it does have some new ways that you can play the game on the new hardware. Don't sound the alarm bells on that, of course; I don't doubt that, like the first game, there will be a number of unique rollouts post-launch to keep people invested. And so we are in a fact-finding mode, to really understand the situation and the scenarios.
Nintendo Switch owners were upset at the fact Nintendo Switch game data would save on the internal storage of the device. The only way you could have got one was by waking up super early last Friday and standing in line, like my colleague Sophia did - unless you thought ahead and pre-ordered the device.
