Nintendo dropped a much hyped-up bomb, and I don’t like it
For quite some time there has been a lot of hype brewing all over the internet about Nintendo’s biggest news. What are they going to show? What will we get for 2018? Is it going to be good? Find out on the next episode of DragonBall No…but seriously that’s how we all felt over the past few months, especially right after the holiday season.
Just to recap what’s been going on with Nintendo for you guys that don’t know, the Switch was the best selling ITEM during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Yea you read that right…it outsold it’s competitors and even other gadgets that’s not even in the same ball game. Following up after the holiday season Nintendo reported 10 million units sold. That is a huge feat for Nintendo especially since the Switch just came out in March 2017. You have to give them credit, they said they would sell this many units and boy did they deliver.
Part of that has to do with the games that came out for it. The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild(recently won Game Of The Year) was the game that really gave it the boost it needed, and Nintendo followed up with a bunch of other titles, both Switch originals and ports such as Splatoon 2, ARMS, Skyrim, and many others. Part of their formula for success is not being seen as a kids-only system, and being able to carry all of these great games with you on the go.
With that said, everyone was expecting their big press release which is usually called Nintendo Direct. They hype on the internet was ridiculous, and none of it came from Nintendo themselves. Be it as it may, a lot of people were late to the party and found the video online and were excited to see what was going to be given to us for 2018. Being a new Nintendo Switch owner, I was disappointed with their lineup. A good friend named Avidan Smith sent me the video pretty much as soon as I got up to start my day and head into work. So we decided to collaborate on a live-stream video and share our thoughts with you guys. In the video I go into why I’m disappointed, and still am! Comment below and let me know how you feel about the Nintendo Direct Mini and why.
