Speaking to the microphones of the Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream, a spokesman for the house of Kyoto has revealed the reasons that led the company to choose Switch as the name of the new console of the Japanese, arriving in stores in March 2017.
The spokesman explained the vision of the company about the chosen name: “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.”
Nintendo also talked about the Switch’s announcement trailer: “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.”
Recall that Nintendo Switch is still not given a precise release date, the official presentation of the expected console on January 13 will reveal new details of launch, price and line-up for Switch. According to a rumor in the last few hours, the dock will improve the performance of the platform: what do you think about it?
