Nintendo Switch
(Last Updated On: January 12, 2017)

Nintendo will be unveiling the launch line-up, price and official release date for the Nintendo Switch tonight. If you had plans on watching the event, you can do so right here on One Angry Gamer.

Nintendo will be unveiling some brand spanking new content and information for the highly anticipate hybrid console through the presentation they have setup to air across the interwebs. You can view the presentation below at your own leisure.

Nintendo will follow-up the presentation of the big Nintendo Switch reveal with a live-presentation tomorrow morning with the Treehouse Live group who will be demonstrating some of the launch titles for the Nintendo Switch.

Gamers and developers alike will be able to see firsthand exactly what the Nintendo Switch games will be like and what the system will be capable of in a real-time environment.

Speaking of developers, according to the GDC 2017 survey, a majority of North American and European developers aren’t making games for the Nintendo Switch. In fact, according to the survey only 3% of the developers who took part in the survey said that they were working on games for the Nintendo Switch.

Only 48% of those same developers thought that the mobile to home-console hybrid approach that Nintendo is taking with the Switch will resonate with the general public but won’t be world-changing. Only 19% thought that the console will both resonate with the public and is the right product for today’s mobile-oriented market. 23% of the developers had no idea how the system will be received on launch, which seems to be the general consensus from a lot of other people on the outside looking in.

Some gamers are excited because Nintendo is the only console manufacturer who focuses on trying to make games fun. So there’s a lot of hope that the Nintendo Switch will sell well because they’re the last real gaming console manufacturer providing content on the market.

We’ll likely find out just how well the Switch will do when it launches this March.

    So…………..what did you think of it?

    I’m glad that they got rid of the Region Locking, but there I felt that they’re repeating the same mistake that the Wii U did, which was focusing only on Mario and Zelda for their 1st party titles, acting like their other notable 1st party series don’t exist, and having (or giving a very damn big impression of) few to no 1st party launch titles.

    Also, while I’m glad that they’re showing off 3rd party titles, I really, Really, REALLY would have enjoyed them giving a quick summary of what would be available at launch. After watching the presentation, they left a really big impression of viewers that there’s really nothing worth getting at launch, so people will either wait to get the system, or not get it at all.

    Hopefully I’m wrong and there will be more info available soon, but I really hope that the impression of the Switch I have now won’t be the same once it becomes March.

    P.S.: Considering a certain scene that we saw in that Zelda trailer, I have this bad feeling that Nintendo’s gonna get the usual SJW suspects hounding on them. Let’s hope they stand their ground, lest they risk pissing off their actual consumers.

    P.S.S.: If their online is gonna have a pay-plan or something like that, I really hope they make DAMN sure that it is stable, because that’s gonna really define online play for A LOT of games.

    • Not happy about the paid online. None of the consoles have justified their pricing for paying to play online, especially with Steam just cleaning house with so many different games with free multiplayer.

      Launch line-up is iffy. I’m not too worried so long as support is there. PS4 launched with piss poor games but did okay on the market (still nothing noteworthy in the software department, but millions of people still like it).

        I almost bought PS online just to get discounts from HK, but when I thought about it, I don’t have any PS4 games that I really want to play online.
