Nintendo means “Innovation” in Japanese. OK, no it doesn’t, but it should. Nintendo has always pushed the boundaries of new and exciting things when it comes to gaming, and that isn’t about to change if the Nintendo Switch is any indication. An odd name, but very appropriate considering this new console is a mix between a powerful home console, and a mobile gaming platform. According to the new reveal trailer released today, the new console will have a controller to use when at home, but by simply “switching” over to the tablet style mobile screen that is part of the console, you can take your game on the go.

Nintendo’s strongest suit has always been hand held, mobile gaming, and they seem to know it. By playing to that strength with this new system I believe they will establish a successful foothold in gamers homes, and at the same time allowing us to take the game with us wherever we go. With cartridge based games, and the addition of third party games such as Skyrim (as shown in the reveal trailer) this new system is shaping up to be a real powerhouse of a console. Game play of a new Mario game was revealed as well as footage of the newest Zelda game, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
