As we approach the holiday season, a lot of things get discussed as to what you should buy your favorite gamer. Well I’m here to tell you that you should look no further than the Nintendo Switch. The uber popular gaming console has been even performing better than what the Nintendo company had projected. Since the N64, I don’t believe Nintendo has had such a popular console. Sure, there was the GameCube, but with the popularity of the original Xbox and the PS2 being one of the most sold consoles of all time, Nintendo hasn’t had a legit hit for almost 20 years. What changed? Why now is the Switch so popular & why should you invest in one for the holiday season?
The Switch has only been out for about a year and a half and has seen great numbers. The console itself can be played at home but also on the go, as you can take your Switch with you and make it into a portable gaming system, much like the PSP from a decade ago. This is amazingly popular amongst gamers since it allows you to play endlessly if you’re caught up in the story of one of the Switch’s many titles! Also what makes the Switch so attractive is those titles you can get caught up in. This holiday season, we have Pokémon Let’s Go and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (releasing 12/7). In these two titles, you see a long-standing franchise update and release a new game for a new generation to enjoy!
The switch is a great gaming console for all ages. Along with great bundle deals and a solid rotation of games to choose from, the endless possibilities for hours of fun are there for the Nintendo Switch. I recommend this simply for the portable aspect. It doesn’t matter if you’re at home or on the road, hell even at work (which I don’t recommend) you will be thoroughly entertained and get the most bang for your buck.
