During the Nintendo Switch Presentation, most of us were asleep—though to be fair, it started at 5AM in Europe—but now that we've caught up on the #NintendoSwitch release date and launch line-up, we can start doing what the internet does best: indiscriminately judging things.
Internet Reacts To The Nintendo Switch Presentation
We had a lot of expectations coming into the presentation, for instance, that Breath of the Wild would be a launch title, that we'd see a new Mario game, an assortment of quirky projects will be revealed and no doubt some other surprises. We got some of what we wanted, some things we're not too excited for and a few curveballs that threw us for a loop. Despite this, the reactions to the #Switch presentation were absolutely brilliant.
Some sat down, totally unaware of the events that would befall them
Events like this
Though it was made clear not all games are meant to be system sellers
Which is fine when most of your eggs are in this basket:
Some pointed out the savage home truth about launch line-ups
Whilst those with a fluent understanding of Japanese celebrated
Those without cracked jokes
Others put their money where the preorder button was
But some couldn't
Some did, but for pessimistic reasons
One guy couldn't wait and tried to create the Switch
Whilst time travelers created the perfect review for the Switch
And some of us are simply looking for lurve...
Seriously though, the #Nintendo Switch presentation ignited a furor in people, whether you're rekindling a sense of childlike wonder or resigned for another Nintendo failure, we'll find out how the console performs on March 3rd.
