Last week Nintendo finally lifted the lid on the Nintendo Switch its next generation video game platform which is due out in March. In the trailer used to show off the system we saw a number of titles being played including Skyrim, Splatoon, Mario Kart and more. However, Nintendo has told Eurogamer that the video was simply a proof of concept video and that “You shouldn’t assume what you saw on the video represents actual game footage.” That’s certainly interesting. Nintendo has said that it will reveal more about the Switch sometime next year.
This video is all about explaining how the Nintendo Switch works. We wanted to convey in a self-contained video how Nintendo Switch represents a new era for video game systems enjoyed in front of a TV, by letting gamers play anywhere, anytime, with anyone they choose. It adds the mobility of a portable system to the power of a home gaming system.
At a later date, before the March launch, we’ll be talking about things like exact launch date, and of course, the games. You shouldn’t assume what you saw on the video represents actual game footage and further specifics on first-party games will be provided later.
