Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s best console
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System will always hold a special place in my heart. That being said, the Nintendo Switch is a better console than the SNES could ever have hoped to be. Nintendo has been very smart with the Switch, releasing at least one proprietary game at least every month. The games are phenomenal, like Breath of the wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, to only cite a few. All of them have catapulted the Switch to being one of the best, if not the best, console of this generation. What’s best is that Nintendo does its own thing and doesn’t care about the competition. And the future is bright too. Breath of the Wild 2 is on its way, as well as Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, which promise to be resounding successes. A new Mario is bound to be on the horizon. The future is only bright. It was also recently announced that the Switch has officially surpassed the Super Nintendo sales record, which is a huge accomplishment. This leaves the system third in terms of sales among Nintendo hardware, just behind the NES and Wii systems. The Nintendo Switch is the best Nintendo console, not just because of sales, but for a myriad of reasons.
The Switch is a lot of fun. One of the things the Switch has done to differentiate it from its competition is the emphasis on indie games. There are so many games available, physical and digital, both indie games and games developed by smaller developers and Japanese publishers / developers. This allows the Switch to have a full library with something for everyone. There are also some excellent mature gaming ports, such as Loss, the last Wolfenstein game, and a resident Evil collection. And, of course, Nintendo’s proprietary line. Zelda, Mario, Splatoon, Fire Emblem, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, Pokemon, Luigi’s Mansion, Xenoblade, Smash Bros.; the list goes on. Nintendo has done a fantastic job of spacing out their releases, unlike the disaster that was the N64 and even the Wii to some extent. Nintendo finally knows what they’re doing and the Switch has arguably the best software lineup of any Nintendo platform.
I love my Super Nintendo and so far it has been my favorite Nintendo console. That changed with the Nintendo Switch. It’s vastly superior and the portability factor is a huge incentive (don’t waste mine like I did!) The future looks even brighter. With games like A courageous omission, Breath of the Wild 2, and Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition on the horizon (and undoubtedly a lot more!), the Switch is poised to assert itself as one of the best, if not the best console of all time. Forget the numbers – the Nintendo Switch is selling well but started from behind. Despite this, it is more sold than the Xbox One. It is an incredible achievement. However, sales don’t always translate into greatness. The PlayStation 4 is a fantastic console, but arguably the Switch is better in terms of its consistent proprietary games and portability factor.
The Nintendo Switch is the best Nintendo console, as well as one of the best consoles of our time. Its innovation, game library, and portability make it a special gaming experience that you can’t find on any platform, past or present.
