What are your predictions for the Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo Switch

In less than 24 hours the world will finally know more on the much anticipated next generation Nintendo console, the Nintendo Switch. Information such as the price, actual release date and perhaps launch titles are expected to be announced. Let’s start off with the price. Rumours suggest that the price tag will be around $250. Now that gives us a conversion of around R3,500 which seems highly unlikely. Personally I’m aiming for the price mark of around R4,500 to R5,000 (with import costs here in SA) and a release date of either the 10th or 17th of March 2017. The launch titles obviously have to include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, however with recent events Europe might have to wait a little longer than Japan and North America, so the question is will there be a ‘New Super Mario’ game to jump in and save the day if this is the case? We would love to hear your thoughts on all of this including your predictions on price and release date?

Nintendo Treehouse will also be hosting an in-depth live stream on Friday showcasing more information on the games that will be announced during the Nintendo Switch Event, so we’ll be seeing another live stream of Link’s adventures through Hyrule or perhaps an entire line-up of launch titles showing off just what the Switch is capable off. Either way, both my mind and body is ready, as for my wallet and bank account? Well, that’s another issue.
