Nintendo Switch fans in United States and United Kingdom will finally get their hands on the higly anticipated console on March 3. "Death Stranding" creator Hideo Kojima seems to be getting one for himself as he has only kind words for the new game console.
In an interview with IGN at Rooster Teeth Expo in Sydney, Australia, Hideo Kojima compared Nintendo Switch to his "Transfarring" concept in 2011. He recalls that in his previous games, like "Metal Gear Solid" HD Collection, saved data from the PS Vita can be moved to PlayStation 3 and vice versa. He believes that the latest console from Nintendo is an extension of that idea.
Hideo Kojima calls Nintendo Switch as the "gamer's dream" because players can play it at home and take it outside. "The Switch is an evolution of that," the game developer said. The game console will have a number of games like "Fifa," "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe," "Minecraft," "The Legend of Zelda" and "Super Mario Odyssey."
Some critics are skeptic about Nintendo Switch's price. At $348.79 (£279.99), it places itself within the same category with Xbox One and PlayStation 4. They note that Nintendo's Wii U was available at less than $125 (£100), and yet it still struggle to attract gamers.
Nintendo Switch pre-order is already open which means that some of the retailers are already out of stock. The red and blue version of the console is sold out in Amazon, except for the grey model according to Independent.
Gamers definitely love Nintendo Switch's multiplayer ability. Players can just sit around with friends and enjoy the game. They can even play while on the go. The Joycons seem interesting and has the ability of precise motion control. The screen is bright and crisp, and the console can be charged with plain old USB-C.
