Save Money on Your Nintendo Switch

 

The Nintendo Switch was released in March 2017 and is Nintendo’s latest offering for console gamers.  This device represents a huge leap forward in their gaming range.  With its highly mobile design, unusual controller and classic Nintendo titles, the Switch has proved to be a big hit.

 

Nintendo Switch: Entertainment at Home and On the Go

 

For the last thirty years, Nintendo has been releasing popular home entertainment products. Starting with the Game and Watch in 1980, they released their NES or Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985.  The first handheld Gameboy came in 1989, and then the Super Nintendo was released in 1991.  Both the GameCube and Gameboy Advance were released in 2001, but it wasn’t until the release of the Nintendo Wii in 2006 that the foundations for the Nintendo Switch were created. 

 

Nintendo’s Wii Remote was the first mainstream system to offer motion capture technology, enabling users to enjoy virtual sports or join a virtual exercise class.  This was followed by the Wii U in 2012, which hones the motion capture technology, making it far more powerful and rivalling Sony systems.

 

How Does the Switch Work?

 

The Nintendo Switch offers three distinct elements that make it different to any other home entertainment console.  The console itself acts as the first element.  This can easily be hooked up to your television and used like a Wii or PlayStation.  You can also attach your console to the second element, its docking station.  This console can also be used like a tablet anywhere you want, although you will need to charge the device periodically. 

 

The third element is the new Joy-Con controller.  This controller isn’t like anything gamers have come across before.  While the direction pad and buttons are familiar, the way the Joy-Con attaches to the side of the Switch console is new.  By attaching the Joy-Con, users can easily turn their mobile console into an incredibly powerful gaming tablet.  The Joy-Con is also adapted for wireless control and motion capture.  This helps to create the most impressive tactile feedback currently on offer. 

 

As we mentioned above, there are to main ways to use the console, either in TV mode with the Switch attached via an HDMI cable to any TV.  Or you can use it in handheld mode with your Joy-Cons attached on either side of the console.

 

 

 

How Does Nintendo Online Work?

 

  This service will feature a smartphone app, which means you can easily organise gaming sessions with your friends.  You will also get to enjoy either an NES or SNES free download every month, as well as brilliant exclusive content offers, so it will probably be worth signing up for.

 

Highlights from the Nintendo Switch Gaming Range

 

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe:  Ever since Mario Kart was first released back in 1991, Luigi and Mario have been locked in thrilling racing contests and every version has offered new and exciting innovations.  The 8th version was originally released for the Wii U in 2014, but Nintendo have produced a new ‘Deluxe’ version for the Switch with a fun new battle mode.

 

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Zelda is one of the most beloved Nintendo franchises and one of the most famous RPG series in history.  The latest incarnation was universally praised as one of 2017’s top games and you can purchase the game for the Switch or the Wii U.  This is a great reason non-Nintendo fans to invest in a Switch.   

 

Super Mario Odyssey: One of the other top games is another title exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.  In Super Mario Odyssey, Mario laves the comfort of the mushroom kingdom and explore the Nintendo world.

 

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Since its release in 2011, Skyrim has proved to be a gaming sensation and it is now coming to Nintendo Switch.

 

 

Nintendo Switch Accessories

 

One of the important things to consider when purchasing a Nintendo Switch is the huge array of accessories on offer.  You won’t be able to get the most out of the system unless you purchase a set of Joy-Con controllers, the cables needed to hook everything together, as well as the docking station.  Plus, not all of these accessories will be include in the basic bundles. 

 

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller: This is essentially a classic-style gamepad and is a good option for players who can’t get to grips with the new Joy-Con system.

Joy-Con Charging Grips: This accessory enables you to clip together the left and right Joy-Cons and charge them during play.

Carrying Case: The Switch can be vulnerable to damage and scratches, which is why a carry case is the perfect accessory.  This will protect your Switch by providing additional padding for your console.

Joy-Con Straps: You can attach these wrist straps to your controller to make it easier to handle.  It will also protect the Joy-Con controller from damage during games that rely on motion capture technology.

Joy-Con Wheel: This handy accessory allows users to place their Joy-Con controllers in a steering wheel that can be used for Mario Kart Deluxe and other racing titles. 

 

Finding the Cheapest Nintendo Deals

 

If you’ve made up your mind about purchasing a Nintendo Switch, the next step is finding the best possible deal.  You’ll likely see a number of Nintendo Switch bundles from Currys, GAME, Amazon and Tesco, along with eBay, Argos and Very.   

 

You may want to wait to purchase your Nintendo Switch, as there are a number of seasonal sales throughout the year that helps make this console more affordable.  Black Friday in November and the January Sales are great times to look for some huge savings.
