Most tech companies shoot their proverbial wads at CES, showing off their finest wares for the coming year and beyond. Usually, this means that the second week in January is a peaceful time, meant for reflection upon the technological wonders seen in Las Vegas. Nintendo, however, is not most tech companies.
This week revealed much more about the company’s forthcoming next generation console, the Switch, which many on the Engadget staff have been eagerly awaiting. You’re not gonna believe this, but a good portion of the internet says that the price, at $300, is too high — despite the fact that its pricing is right in line with the console competition from Sony and Microsoft. Regardless, early returns on its innovative home/mobile console hybrid hardware design are good. And yes, there will be a new Zelda game available at launch in early March, with a brand new Mario game on sale before the end of the year.
