Nintendo Switch Event.

This post is just my general reactions and opinions on the Nintendo Switch event on January 12, 2017. 

Overall I fell the reveal was pretty good and well received. About half way through they showed some of the "filler games". They have announced a new Mario game known as Super Mario: Odyssey, Xenoblade 2, Splatoon 2, and some new IP's. After the presentation they added more to the website with pricing of accessories and other games that were not announced. The Nintendo Switch launches on March 3rd, 2017 at the retail price of $299.99. 

Nintendo Switch needs to have a huge and successful launch in order to be successful because I don't think a lot of people have much left to give Nintendo. They did not show a whole lot of launch titles but the Nintendo website is being updated with a ton of information that was not in the live stream presentation. There were some very exciting games shown like Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade 2, Fire Emblem, etc... 

The most exciting news from the live stream was the final trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with the launch date of March 3, 2017 which is huge. Fans have been waiting a huge amount of time for this game to finally come out. This is what will help the Nintendo Switch tremendously and Nintendo knows that. I have really high hopes for this game and this console.
