Nintendo Officially Unveils Their Newest Console, Nintendo Switch.

This morning, after months of rumors and speculation Nintendo revealed the true name and nature of their Nintendo NX console. The new console, simply called Nintendo Switch, features a tablet like touchscreen that primarily sits on a charging base while players play the game via detachable controllers on their TV. If players wish to continue playing on the go they can attach the controllers to the screen like a smaller, thinner Wii U gamepad.
While no launch titles were provided the trailer did offer a glimpse at what Nintendo’s future holds. There was a new, untitled 3D Mario game, what looked like Skyrim being played on an airplane, an NBA game, and what looked like a port of Splatoon. While this is just the tip of the iceberg for what titles may be slated for the Nintendo Switch, the trailer confirmed the previously announced release window of March 2017. No pricing information was provided, however.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.

    I honestly think this could be Nintendo’s best console yet. It could even rival Xbox and Playstation in my opinion due to the fact that it can operate as a console and a portable gaming device.

    I can’t wait! I am still stuck on the Wii and PS3 and I am ready for something new!
