Everything You Need To Know About The Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch presentation has happened and with it a bunch of new information about the console has been revealed, LVLONE plans on going further into the details and what this means for Nintendo but here are the big news from the event that you need to know.

Price and Release Date

Nintendo will launch the Switch on March 3, 2017 simultaneously in the US, Japan, Canada and some of Europe. The console will retail at $299.99, the package has the Switch itself along with the Joy-Con controllers, Joy-Con grip and the usual cables and adapters. The Pro controller is sold separately.




Online Service

In a surprising move Nintendo announced their online service will free until Fall 2017, after that it will move to a paid subscription but they haven’t mentioned price. The only other detail we got was that the online service will include an exclusive app that players will use to connect to their friends online.

Nintendo Switch Games Announced

There were of course several new games announced at the presentation, the first is 1-2-Switch which is a motion controlled competitive game, a trailer showed off mini-games like sword combat and a few other party games. The second title announced was Arms, motion-controlled arena combat game where players use over-sized arm like boxing gloves. Arms supports split-screen, and online multiplayer.



Splatoon 2 was the next big announcement, the game looks like a what you’d expect in a sequel to the popular squid shooter. Splatoon 2 has new weapons, new arenas and new gameplay options, the game will launch this summer.



Super Mario Odyssey was easily the biggest announcement, as rumored the game is closer in style to Mario 64 and Mario Sunshine. Super Mario Odyssey looks like a sprawling open world game with big levels to explore. In a strange twist, parts of the game seem to take place in a New York City like area complete with realistic looking people. Super Mario Odyssey will be released holiday 2017.



There were a few other games that were announced, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Fires Emblem Warriors, a new Shin Megami Tensei, and Project Octopath Traveler. Most of these games were teased with a trailer without much details.
