Nintendo Switch Launches Details And Release Date Revealed
The Nintendo Switch will hit stores March 3rd! and it is coming with awesome lineup of games, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a launch title things are looking relatively positive after a successful live event last night. The hardware specs look about what everyone expected.
- 32 GB internal memory + additional memory for cartridge SD cards
- 6.2 inch screen with 1280×720 resolution
- Around 3 hours of battery life when playing Zelda…battery will range anywhere from 2-6 hours.
- USB-C charger for fast charging that’s compatible with most smartphone chargers.
- $299 price point
It appears that the Joycon controllers will not only feature sensor motion controls, but also a new technology “HD Rumble”.
This new HD rumble was advertised to be so dynamic and sensitive that it will register the feeling of an ice cube dropping into a cup you’re holding in game, a sword fight, and more.
The software lineup is strong and steeped with Nintendo and 3rd party titles alike.
The only real downside of the presentation was the online announcement. Nintendo is going paid subscription…but requiring a smartphone to sign in and chat with friends? They’re also offering free games from their library…for one month at a time and then they’re gone. Nintendo didn’t jump into the online game until years after the fact and it’s really apparent now that they’re making an honest grab at it.
