So, guess what I was actually able to get my hands on a few days ago? Yep! None other than the brand new Nintendo Switch! To be quite honest, I’m just as shocked as you are. Availability of the Switch has been ultra-rare since weeks before its actual release date. I wasn’t able to grab the color that I originally wanted, but I have to say that I am loving the grey model way more than I thought I would.
What would the switch be without its premiere launch title, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Acquiring Breath of the Wild proved to be a bit of a challenge as well. I finally found it after checking 3 different GameStop locations. Yes, there is a digital copy of the game that could be downloaded, but given that the Switch comes standard with only 32gb of onboard system memory, it wouldn’t leave that very much needed “wiggle room.” To date, I haven’t played a ton of Breath of the Wild, but I’m getting there. So far though, I can say that it’s awesome!
The one thing that I’m still puzzled about is the release of a Pokemon game, codenamed Pokemon Stars, onto the Nintendo Switch. I’d have to say that this mysterious entry into the Pokemon series is what got me so psyched about the Switch in the first place…even more than Zelda. The details on Pokemon Stars are super scarce, with no “official” confirmations regarding the release/development of the game from neither GameFreak or Nintendo. As of right now, all we can do is dream…
Ok, that about wraps up this little blurb on the Nintendo Switch; I need to get back to playing Zelda!
See ya in the next one!
