The Nintendo Switch release is right around the corner. The popularity of the switch has been spreading like wild fire. Gary Jones from Express even reported that…
“The NINTENDO switch pre order numbers are reportedly taking on PS4 launch day sales with gusto”
Many gamers out there have been keeping their ears searching for more information of the unique console experience that NINTENDO is bringing with the Switch. There was a very large scare for the amount of releases that were to come for the year of 2017 that no one seemed sure how Nintendo was going to combat this. Well it looks like Nintendo has chosen their weapons for battle against Microsoft and Sony, that weapon being Indie games.
Nintendo is taking a very intruiging approach to their new console by making close connections with small indie companies. As reported by Chris Plante on The Verge,
“Nintendo has a revised strategy for indie games: look forward rather than backward. That goal is a bit loaded. On one hand, it speaks to a general concept of newness. Its slate of upcoming indie games, which will be charged with filling the Switch’s slim release calendar, are largely new releases, many debuting exclusively on the portable-console hybrid. That is to say, few of them are releases of games that have appeared elsewhere ( being the obvious exception). But “looking forward rather than backward” also speaks to the company’s ongoing relationship with the people who make and publish indie video games — a group it has, to this point, largely neglected.”
It would be nice to see Nintendo make their climb back to the top with the Indie game market by their side. This could be a great way for not only Nintendo to Excell, but possibly see many deserving publishers to gain the success they deserve. So be on the look out for the many fascinating games that NINTENDO will be brining to the Nintendo Switch. Also get excited for March 3rd the release of the Nintendo Switch.
