KY Nerd’s Guide to the Nintendo Switch

Over the weekend the Nintendo revealed more gameplay footage, release dates, video game names, models, and prices. The internet is a great place to find information, but THERE is a lot of it everywhere…. so let’s tidy up the information about the Nintendo Switch.

  • RELEASE DATE – March, 3rd2017
  • PRICE – $299.99

Grey Model W/Grey Controllers (JOYCONS) 32 Gigabytes of storage

Grey Model W/Colored Controllers(JOYCONS) 32 Gigabytes of storage


This means you can play Imported games without restrictions.

  • PRE-ORDERS – As of this post is ALL SOLD OUT everywhere.
  • Launch Game Worth Getting – The Legend Zelda Breath of the Wild
  • Controllers and Accessories are EXPENSIVE.

Real Questions.

Question -Should you get it at launch?

Answer – If you have a Wii U, then NO Zelda Breath of the Wild will release on it as well. If not and you have a Zelda Fan possibly. My rule of thumb is to stay clear of the first batch of consoles anyways.

Questions – What are the benefits of the Nintendo Switch?

Answer – The Nintendo Switch looks to be a great gaming device, it’s really a Portable Device, I’ve always loved the Gameboys I can’t imagine I won’t love this as well. The great part is I can just dock it to the TV if I want to do couch gaming without any special hookups with is great. If I wanted to play a 3DS or even capture footage, it’s almost impossible without spending tons of money.

 Question – When should I purchase the Nintendo Switch?

Answer – Late 2017. They have 3rd party support lining up. I suggest waiting for Mario Odyssey as it probably will be the “Killer App” of the system.


That’s all I have, hopefully, this helps someone.

Below I will link Nintendo’s calendar of release dates for games, and amazon links to purchase games if you purchase from my links it helps the blog out!
