Nintendo's Fils-Aime on Switch backwards compatibility: "Stay tuned"

The Japanese video game company's shares dropped by 5.9 percent last Friday, Bloomberg reports, and the stocks plummeted by 3.6 percent on Monday. Convinced by the Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo has detailed three different play styles so far. Would be unbelievable if it could though, you could keep all your big games at home and just take a few of your faves along with you on the go.

After digesting all the details I have mixed feelings about the Switch.

According to market analyst Daniel Ahmad, GameStop's initial batch went fast and they've already secured 500,000 SKUs for launch based on the pre-orders alone. "We feel like we are in a good position with the supply for Switch". And of course, Nintendo is offering a steering wheel accessory to mount a Joy-Con into, which costs $14.99. Will Samus Aran make a return?

In other words, some analysts believe Nintendo might give up on the home console business and concentrate on software, and possibly the 3DS, in future years.

The majority of older Nintendo fans who are working may not care, but the $300 tag brings the question of whether the Switch can appeal to a mass audience like the Wii did in 2006 when it started at $250.

Controllers: There are two detachable Joy-Con controllers that you can keep on the console or remove and play with. Alongside that, a smartphone app will also be there to provide the gamers with the opportunity to chat with the co-players while in multiplayer. One will ship with gray Joy-Cons, while the other has one Neon Blue and one Neon Red.

NWS issues freeze warning, ice rain advisories across Green Country
Saturday night temperatures will drop below freezing again resulting in a chance for more freezing rain into Sunday morning. Precipitation is forecast to fall throughout the day Friday , and is expected to get heavier after sunset.

Despite this faff, I am glad that Nintendo is finally releasing controllers with rechargeable batteries built in.

Nintendo fully introduces their newest console in the Nintendo Switch during a special event that was livestreamed by various media portals.

The hype for the pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch appears to be real. It's not as bad as it was for the Wii U and 3DS.

The Nintendo EPD said that players might notice the game with a little information inside the game.

"Like a pizza", I said. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe arrives in April, while several major manufacturers have also committed to producing games for the machine. Snipper Clips is one of the games that felt great as a tabletop game.

All this revere, hype, excitement, and doom-and-gloom commentary pile-on about Nintendo's forthcoming hybrid console, the Switch, has left the Wii U out of the conversation altogether. Both Xbox and PlayStation have onboard capabilities to communicate in games without having to utilize another device. This time, no rumors have been included since the company itself announced the game will be released the same day as the Nintendo Switch. With the Switch, Nintendo is aiming to sell that same fun party experience while also encouraging you to take it on the road.

In particular, the Australian price might seem a little steep but it's actually about correct once you convert from the USA dollar and add tax/shipping/import costs.
