The Making of Breath of the Wild - Open Air Concept:
Switch Carts Taste Terrible Because... We Need To Eat Them?
Many news sites are reporting that the new Switch game carts taste absolutely terrible, which is something i'd honestly never thought i'd type in a sentence. That said, as Nintendo game carts are now quite small I imagine Nintendo didn't want kids eating them so making the label taste awful would make it so tiny humans don't swallow them which is actually a nice feature now that my house is occupied by a very explorative 9 month old.
That said, if any Cheerful Ghosters have Breath of the Wild on Switch can you lick the games sticker and report back? I'm curious what your thoughts are and what it tastes like. You know, for science. Also, if you are playing Breath of the Wild i'd love for you to post your thoughts on the game so far and keep us updated as you keep playing it.
Nintendo switch will also require a bit of charging as with certain games the battery will last 2 1/2 to 6 hours. That's not too bad I suppose but I imagine Breath of the Wild might run at the 2 1/2 hour battery end. Nintendo mentioned the system can play and charge at the same time so if you are on a flight with a socket, you should be fine.
I'm pretty excited they mentioned that local multiplayer would support up to 8 systems connected together. I bet that would create for an interesting Mario Kart party with people bringing in multiple Switch systems. Something I didn't expect to hear was that the Joy-con also acts as a sort of Wii-mote. This looks to bring the Wii functionality forward to the Switch which looks to create some interesting game experiences. Not sure i'd play many of them all told, but something could come of it that I might enjoy.
Some of the games demo'd were:
Mario Odyssey which looks like an open world Mario game featuring many different planet like areas. Mario’s hat is a character that has some role in the game that seems to interacts with the Switch controller. Mario Odyssey looks like it will come out in the holiday season of 2017. A couple other titles they demoed were Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Dragon Quest 10, 11 (in Japan), Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2, Project Octopath traveler, Skyrim and Splatoon 2.
The presentation wasn't quite what I expected and I wanted more technical details of the system but from what they did show the Switch looks pretty cool and I bet it will sell out come March 3rd. What did you think of the presentation? Are you going to pick up the system or are you scratching your head a bit with the new direction Nintendo is headed?
The switch looks great and even if it was just a couple minutes the... Read All Nintedo of America's Reggie Fils-Aimé was on Jimmy Fallon showing off the upcoming Super Mario Run on iOS as well as the new Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. Reggie dropped a few news nuggets in that we are getting a special Apple Store Super Mario Run demo December 8th as well as Nintendo releasing more information on the Nintendo switch January 12th. If we can download the Super Mario Run demo early by visiting an Apple Store I might do that just to try it a week early. Hopefully more details come out about that because if I can just play it in the store i'll just wait.
The switch looks great and even if it was just a couple minutes the transition from the TV to playing on the system was seamless.
If you are craving even more Breath of the Wild check out the Nintendo let's play below.

Read All According to some very interesting rumors the Nintendo NX might be a tablet with detachable controllers (seen above) that sports an NVidia processor that you can plug into your TV that will take some kind of flash-like game karts. What this basically means is that, if true, Nintendo's next console will be a fairly powerful system while rooted in a touch interface with a traditional controller attached.
If you've been following the site for a while now you know we talked about some of the things we all wanted to see in the NX back in March. In my article I said i'd love it if Nintendo offered a Netflix styled game download system and that the NX should be some mobile experience you could fling to your TV. Looks like we might be getting something better than I envisioned and I am very interested to know more about it.
As with most things Nintendo, this device will be tied into their ecosystem and it seems that the rumors explicitly strike out that this is an open Android system. Still, this seems to at first glace, harmonize Nintendo's future in that if the NX will be their console and handheld offering this makes it a nice system to purchase if you want to experience all of the new Nintendo games.
Until Nintendo talks more about the NX these are unconfirmed rumors but they all seem to point to a very interesting system I want to know a lot more about. What do you think, does this seem like something you might be interested in getting and does this leaked design seem like a good way to play games?
