Party like it’s 1998!
The first portion of this video is some performative yelling about weapon durability, specifically in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The second portion is about something less durable than any weapon in any game – the psyches of Zelda‘s most viciously defensive fans.
The Nintendo Switch Presentation revealed more details about March’s Wii U successor and… it was okay. The presentation was okay.
However, it wouldn’t be Nintendo without some frustrating, infuriating caveats, so let’s see how they ballsed this one up, shall we?
In the Far Long Ago of 2012, Nintendo released the Wii U. It was a good machine that failed because Nintendo is Nintendo and thought sheer arrogance could sell a console. It’s also the place Miiverse was born, an inbuilt social media service that I, for one, thought was a bloody brilliant idea.
So brilliant, in fact, Nintendo just had to fuck up and reveal it’s not coming to the Switch. Because of course.
To commemorate Nintendo’s decision to not continue with a good idea, I took a trip down memory lane so we could talk about the Miiverse’s most important contribution to society, and still a far better use of the Rabbids Land section.
Nintendo ContentID claimed this video so I’m now presenting this as Jimquisition Dot Com material. I’ll benefit off this somehow!
Anyway, here are my initial thoughts on the presentation from last night. It was an okay presentation.
As far as what I think of some of the details that emerged after the presentation… just wait until Monday. Nintendo delivered the goods as far as material.
Let’s jump aboard the Nintendo Switch content train and hump it. Hump it until our genitals bleed!
Seriously though, we’re talking about Nintendo’s marketing this week, and the importance of visual communication when selling a product.
Also, #PerformanceMatters n’ stuff!
