Nintendo introduced the all NEW Switch in L.A. at Raleigh Studios. The concept is very creative, they didn’t reinvent the wheel but they gave gaming a consolidation and added some fluff too. It’s a bit pricey, so waiting until it cools may provide for a decrease in price or a wild goose chase to find one. Serious gamers will probably want to jump right on it. We saw several YouTubers there with one.
We entered a solid white hallway that lead us into the largest arcade room that I’ve ever seen! The entire studio lit up with larger than life screens and the energy was hella high. It was exciting, I think that was the point. I was standing around and only letting the boys play and someone said to me you should jump in and have fun too. We bounced around from Mario Kart to Zelda to our new favorite game ARMS (Spring ’17.)
Nintendo pulled out all of the stops at Raleigh Studios. Purple lighting , more big screens TVs than Best Buy, comfortable couches and seatings so you’d be so engaged in playing and get totally lost in the world of Nintendo.
My boys are pretty competitive with one another on video games. That’s normal right. So during the event they were never in the same place at the same time. Needless to say I was all over the place trying to catch them in action for a photo.

Nintendo Switch is the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.
At home the system rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which lets you play with family and friends on a TV in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock at any time, the system instantly transitions to handheld mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its 6.2-inch screen, which displays bright, high-definition gameplay at the park, on an airplane, in a car, or at a friend’s apartment.
