January’s Switch presentation received mixed reactions from many fans. It seems that sentiment was also felt in Japan. The best examples of this come from a poll conducted by Hachima, a Japanese video game blog. Translated by Source Gaming, it seems that Japanese players think the Switch’s price is too high.
