Nintendo Switch Will Not Replace 3DS, Nintendo President Explains Why
Nintendo Switch attracted a lot of attention since it has been marketed as the most versatile gaming device yet. This $300 gadget from Nintendo can be a traditional gaming console, a tablet, and a handheld device rolled in one. Given its functions, there have been whispers that the Nintendo Switch will replace 3DS but this has been denied by Reggie Fils-Aime, the President of Nintendo America.
3DS Is Not Doomed
Since Nintendo Switch will overlap with the market for 3DS, people who own the device fear that Nintendo will stop creating games for the handheld device. Fils-Aime emphasized that Nintendo Switch is mainly designed to be a home console although it can double as a handheld device.
In an interview with CNET, he also reassured 3DS owners that Nintendo will not phase out 3DS. In fact, the company is planning to reveal its spring and summer game lineup for 3DS in June during the E3 gaming conference.
Nintendo Switch Release Date
Nintendo Switch will not ship out until March but there is already a lot of news about the product. Nintendo Switch will only have five games during the launch date and three of these games are third-party games.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey are some of the games that will not be available to Nintendo Switch right away. There is still no word about how the Virtual Console will be integrated with the Switch. However, Fils-Aime responded that this announcement will be made prior to Nintendo Switch's official launch.
The Switch is already available for pre-order and some reviews about the Switch are already out. There are some who feel that despite how flexible it is, it is still lacking. Functionality issues have also been raised by those who tested the product. While there is some criticism about the design, there is no denying that many people are excited about Nintendo Switch. In fact, Nintendo switch is already sold out at GameStop.
