NIntendo Switch

There’s a new rumor regarding Nintendo’s newest console and its advertising. Coming from GoNintendo, it seems that GameStops will be getting advertising materials for the Switch and maybe putting them up soon. These materials include things such as posters and display boxes. The video also mentioned that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be available for pre-order not long from now.


About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.

    Nintendo really should start advertising it soon with the launch line-up. If the thing is releasing in March they don’t have much time left.

    • They should have started advertising it after E3. Would have been the best time.

    • PanurgeJr

      Would have been a waste of advertising dollars. Nobody was going to be convinced during the holidays to save their money for a March item. They can, however, be convinced to spend their tax refund.

    I think it would be a good idea if they started advertising the switch on their mobile games, pokemon go and super Mario run. Like when the app boots up or something, have it say the switch is coming out. This way casual fans that have no idea this thing is coming out may become aware. That was one of wii u’s problems anyway – casual fans were either confused or unaware of the system’s existence

    • Mobile gamers are casuals and would not really care.

    • Panpopo

      Perhaps, but they would lose nothing by doing it. And it seems there is a definite correlation with Pokemon GO and Sun/Moon sales.

      Regardless, advertisements were going to happen sooner or later.

  • Shadowstrike

    We’ve had boxes in mine for about 6-8 days these stories are super late.

  • I wonder if they will get playable demos?

    • Panpopo

      That would be a good idea.

  • Jeremy Barnes

    They should worry about performance decline when the system is undocked, the limited battery life and the inexplicable underclocking of the old tegra chip they’re using before they start advertising.

    Weird that this shit is still so mysterious since I can preoder the switch since early december, if my local shop is right then the console will come (in romania at least) in 31.03.2017, at ~312$.
