Congratulations and Expectations on Switch Launch Day
The big day is finally here and Nintendo fans are waiting for bated breath for their new Switch to arrive. While market observers are likely most interested in the much speculated-upon specs of the new hybrid consoles — not to mention how many of the things the Japanese corporation will sell — gamers are probably just getting started on some of the the launch games that come with it.
The biggest one is Legend of Zelda: the Breath of the Wild, which by all accounts is a very fun game indeed. Already garnering accolades from reviewers all over the Internet, the game has proven itself worthy of being a member of Nintendo’s flagship franchise and a great title that uses much of the flexibility the Switch offers. Other Switch games have not yet that kind of traction quite yet, but the day is still young.
Besides optimism from its fans, Nintendo also received well-wishes from all its major competitors, congratulating the old man of the gaming industry for launching its new console. Sony and Microsoft were of course the very first to send a Tweet or two out, but also publishers like Ubisoft and Sega made sure to join these industry giants and share their enthusiasm over the new console.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime also expressed his gratitude, but to the long-standing supporters and customers of the company. “Thanks for being the best fans,” he said in a message on Twitter, wishing them a pleasant journey as they embarked on their exploration of all the Nintendo Switch has to offer.
Expectations have been high for the Nintendo Switch ever since it was announced, now that the moment of truth has arrived, it will be great to see what this new hybrid console can do and what kind of performance consumers can expect.
