Nintendo Switch has created a major scene among console fans. Before it is being released, many people throwing shades and put a doubt towards Nintendo to make this console come to full realization. But when it is being released to the worldwide market at March 2017, the number proves otherwise. Within a time from its release to September 2018, 22.9 million units was sold globally. People everywhere talk about this amazing console and praise Nintendo for successfully making this console.
As for me, I’m a hardcore fan of a portable console. I still remember the first handheld console that I own is a Game Boy. As I grew up with tons of other consoles, my passion for gaming grows deeper. I’ve been gaming on a daily basis if I’m not working or traveling. Usually, my main gaming device when I’m traveling is PS Vita and New 3DS XL but recently it’s all been ‘switch’ to Nintendo Switch. I will let you know the reasons why I think Nintendo Switch is a perfect match for a traveler.
i) Pack with power; more triple – A games to play
It is undeniable that Nintendo Switch is a powerful device. With this current specs, running a triple-A game like Skyrim is not a problem anymore. When Skyrim released in November 2011, I had this wish that my life will be complete if I could play this game anywhere. And with Switch, this has been made possible. Thank you, Nintendo.
Nintendo Switch has a lot of triple-A games list in its library like Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild, DOOM, Diablo 3 and Skyrim. All of these games are now possible to be played anywhere thanks to Switch. While if you prefer to play an indie type of games, this console will not let you down too. Numerous numbers of indie games are also available like Stardew Valley, Celeste, Enter the Gungeon and Minecraft.
ii) Its portable; easy to carry.
Whenever I’m going out to travel, I will always pack my Nintendo Switch in its Protective Travel Hard Case that I purchased from Amazon. And I can confirm the weight is acceptable and did not consume much of my baggage space. Then, whenever I have free time; waiting to board the aircraft at the arrival hall, cruising time and all the free time I have, I will take my Switch, turn them on and play. It’s really that easy.
iii) Shares the consoles to doubles your fun.
With its 3 main modes to play this console, playing games are never been too versatile like this before.
Another great thing about Switch are the ability to take out its controller from the left and right side and transform it into two controllers. How convenient is that? Imagine on aircraft at 30,000 feet above sea level, you are now busy playing with Switch while your friends or your loved one sitting next to you get left behind and got bored. But with this ability that Switch have, you can now play games together. Some game that supports this mode is like Super Mario Party, Overcooked 2 and Snipperclips. And with these games, it’s enough time to kill before you arrive at your destination.
With all of these great things you can get, it will always be a great device for a traveler to own as a solution for gaming on the go. If you love traveling and gaming like me, you will definitely find Nintendo Switch as a perfect companion to travel with you.
P/S: You can definitely get this beast via Amazon. The current price for Nintendo Switch is $299.
