It has been a year since the release of the Nintendo Switch, and with it a whole slew of popular and indie games that are exclusive to the portable console. It is not like the PlayStation Portable; the Nintendo Switch is full blown console that just allows you to take your game wherever which, is perfect when traveling with kids, as they can play it whenever.
In its first 9 months, Nintendo sold a whopping 10 million units, and it’s still selling big! Right now, you can even checkout the Nintendo Switch deals at Harvey Norman. Still, a lot of people are hesitant to treat themselves with the Nintendo Switch. Well, these reasons might convince you to purchase one now.
You do not need to take a long time to finish a game
One of the most annoying things as a gamer is not being able to savour a game because you need to go to work, or school, or run errands for the day. Which means you have to constantly pause and save before getting into a boss battle. With the Switch, you need not trouble yourself with rushing towards the checkpoint just to save your game. You can continue playing at the office during your break, or in transit (of course, given that you are not the one driving).
You have been a big fan of Nintendo games
With the Nintendo Switch, of course, comes a plethora of Nintendo created games like Mario of Legend of Zelda. In fact, if you have not played Mario Kart 8 or Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you are definitely missing out. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild alone has been named one of the best games to come out in the recent years, from Nintendo. Introducing a new open-world feature in the game that makes that trumps all the other open-world games.
You will not worry about purchasing region exclusive games
The best thing about Nintendo Switch games is that they are region-free. Just like other game developers, Nintendo used to be very strict about where you purchase your games. But now, they are doing away with region exclusivity, so you can import your games very easily.
You can purchase any brand of connector
The problem with some of the tech these days is their propensity for exclusivity. If you need a connector for a phone, you will have to purchase the connector from the brand manufacturing your phone. With the Nintendo Switch, you can easily replace your connector, which is a USB Type-C, because you do not have to buy Nintendo manufactured wires.
You can discover lots of independent games
Just like with music, we all want to discover games that are unique and not too commercial. There are a whole lot of indie games available in their eShop. The most popular of these are Stardew Valley, Shovel Knight, and more.
Ready to take on a whole new gaming experience? Well, you better get on the Nintendo Switch train because updates and new games are lined up for it.
