Here is a Better Look at the Nintendo Switch UI

Elbert EdwardsJan 24, 2017

With all the excitement with the Nintendo Switch and the sports games that are included, all was well.

And now even more title have seen pricing realignments, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 1-2-Switch and Arms. We believe that by next holiday season, with the launch of Super Mario Odyssey, that the footprint for Nintendo Switch will be very broad.

Nevertheless, Nintendo remains confident that their new console will not stumble like the Wii U.

The Switch launch will lean heavily on the appeal of the latest Zelda release; Image source: Nintendo. The company could have built the hype up around the Switch but done so in a way that was clear in what the console was and was not.

Wii U will go down as having fantastic content-the issue was as you look at the reality of exactly when the games were launched, there were large gaps in between. We've also been told what the last first-party Wii U game release will be, and that too should come as no surprise.

Well you may think Nintendo is doomed because the Nintendo Switch doesn't cost $200 and can't run Fallout 4 in 4K, but the rest of the world thinks this thing is going to really take off. However, it appears that the system might not have the hardware power needed to facilitate smooth ports of more graphically intensive games.

Despite successes of the video games in smartphone environment, Nintendo stocks have not gone up in prices.

EA recently underlined their renewed commitment to Nintendo, with executive vice-president Patrick Söderlund making an appearance during the Nintendo Switch reveal in Tokyo on January 13th, and now the man from EA has more to say about Nintendo. Many hope that the Nintendo Switch will beat the dismal 13,000 units sold by its predecessor Nintendo Wii U by a wide margin. This would also allow the Switch to compete directly with the Xbox One.

Clearly, Nintendo knows EA's a big player in the gaming space. Today the dedicated handheld game console category is the least exciting of the big game platforms, the others being mobile (smartphone), PC and web (cloud). But that is not to happen, and Nintendo Switch might suffer a lot due to this.

Despite the positive comments from Söderlund, EA has yet to announce any games beyond Federation Internationale de Football Association for the Switch, which has been criticised for a poor range of launch titles.
