Unlike my New York-based colleagues, I didn’t get a Nintendo Switch early enough to give some thoughts on the hardware. Mine arrived yesterday, along with Just Dance 2017 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. For obvious reasons, the former is still in its plastic wrapping, and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future. I’ve since put five hours or so into Zelda, though, and I’m really enjoying it… when I can stay alive.
Five hours isn’t long enough to really make a substantial call on a game of this size’s merits, but I can say a few things with certainty.
