The Nintendo Switch is easily one of the most anticipated consoles in recent memory. It’s blending of a high-quality console, but with the ability to take it anywhere you want without fear, makes it a console that many want to have. After all, who wouldn’t want to take their AAA title on the go, instead of having to be rooted in front of a TV all the time?
Since its initial announcement via a commercial, players have been excited. But once Nintendo did a massive presentation for the console and unveiled many of the upcoming games, players hype went through the roof, and pre-orders were selling out left and right. As we enter the literal launch week, with the console set to release on the 3rd, the anticipation is getting almost unbearable, and not just in the US, but all over the world.
Players have been noting how some of their countries of origin are preparing for the launch of the Nintendo Switch. Australia apparently has been advertising the console heavily, whereas Ireland seems to be more subdued, though local stores do have ads for it there. Other countries have the console priced pretty high right now, but fans note that they’ll go down eventually. The UK, Canada, and Germany are already seeing many ads and sellouts of Switch pre-orders, with some stating that the Switch could end up like the Wii in regards to not being able to be found for a while.
As for the games, everyone is talking about Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and that’s not surprising as it’s the premiere launch title, and a game many years in the making. Regardless of what country you’re in, the Nintendo Switch is coming, and it has the potential to be one of the biggest console launches in history.
