Nintendo Switch

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Late last year, Nintendo gave us a sneak-peak at their new console, the Nintendo Switch.

The video game giant kept its cards close to its chest and has only hinted at a March release date so far. Oh yeah and a totally cool 3-minute trailer that has got the video game world talking!

The Switch is a whopping £279.99. Even bigger if you want to get two exclusive games with it (Splatoon2 & Zelda Breath of the Wild) as the price jumps to £379.99! Worth it? We will have to wait and see.

If you are looking for a machine that just specialises in gaming then the Nintendo Switch is for you. There are rumours in the tech industry that this could be Nintendo’s last shot at building a console that can keep up or match the might of the PS4 or New Xbox so it might just be brilliant. At a press launch a couple of weeks ago a Nintendo spokes-person said, “All of our efforts have gone toward making the Nintendo Switch system an amazing dedicated video game platform.”

If you are a parent reading this then listen in…You can get a safety app that allows  you to see the latest games your child has been playing, as well as this, you can set restrictions so your child isn’t playing any over-aged games and you can set a timer which will tell your child when gaming time is up! I wonder if a parent at Nintendo thought of that idea!?

Keep your eyes peeled for more pre-release news from Manor Leas Academy newsroom.

    Great article Jude! Nintendo Switch has the potential to be a massive hit console in the gaming industry, the only problem I can think of is the price tag.
    Keep up the awesome work

    Great article. Concisely describes the features of the Nintendo Switch from both the adult gamer and parents of a younger gamer’s point of view. I’ll be interested in seeing further articles about how ‘the Switch’ fares once it goes on sale.
    Thanks to Jude Card for this informative piece.
    Looking forward to the next one!
