“The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.” Coming March 2017.
WELP – let’s take a look!
So, it’ll be a relatively powerful piece of TV-connected console tech, but can be.. ahem… SWITCHED into various configurations that allow for mobile use, multiplayer battles and more.
Given Nintendo’s excellent handheld history, I have to remain optimistic about this. While the past decade of its consoles has been the most mixed mixed bag in the history of all baghood, the GBA, DS and 3DS were (and hell, still ARE) amazing and if Nintendo’s found a way to make an all-in-one box, then let’s effin’ go for it.
In the trailer we see footage of a Bethesda game (assuming Elder Scrolls but honestly I haven’t paid super close attention lately) along with Breath of the Wild, Splatoon and Mario. Wondering – does this play Wii U games, IS it a Wii U, or are these ports a la Twilight Princess hopping from GC to Wii ten years ago?
More to learn! Thoughts?
