Nintendo Switch: Coming 3/3/17 with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo Switch launched March 3, 2017. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be a launch title.

After watching the Nintendo Switch announcement, I thought one thing: I hope it doesn’t end up like the Wii U (a console that is played for a little bit, then forgotten about).

Switch launches March 3rd, 2017 for $299.99. Of course, quantities are limited – one per customer address. Orders are being filled in the order they are received. There will be no region locking. The battery life is between 2-6 hours depending on the game you are playing and 8 Switches can be connected for local multiplayer. It comes with the two controllers and it is a mobile console that can be played on a TV or the screen that comes with the console. Nintendo uploaded the presentation. I suggest you check it out.
