Over the years, Nintendo has released many consoles and platforms and each was sporting a unique and different name. Now, we ask: “Why the Switch?”
Nintendo Dream is a Japanese magazine and they have been able to ask questions to the big N. They were able to ask them on the decision behind the final name of the infamous Nintendo NX.
Why Nintendo Switch?
“We decided that this name would be the best fit for our product for two reasons. It represents one of the defining features of the Switch, the ability to seamlessly ‘switch’ between the TV screen and Switch’s screen, while also embodying the idea of being a ‘switch’ that will flip, and change the way people experience entertainment in their daily lives.”
When asked about their thoughts on the consumers’ reactions to the reveal trailer, here is what the house of Mario had to say:
“We wanted to show people just how much of an enjoyable difference it will make in their entertainment experiences, by having them see and hear for themselves what it can do in an easy-to-digest manner. It allows people to enjoy a home console experience not only in front of a TV, but in rooms with no TV, or outside altogether. And because the controllers are detachable from the main body of the console, each of its forms offer different play experiences for people to enjoy.”
For more information on the Switch itself, Nintendo is reserving itself until the January event. Stay tuned until then for the big juicy details!
