This week on The Free Cheese Podcast: we turn 3 minutes into 2 hours.
Nintendo announced its newest home console, the Nintendo Switch. Long known by its codename, "NX," the Nintendo Switch is a home console that has the ability to be carried outside of the home and played wherever you go.
Joe and Matt discuss the nature of this new console and pull at every thread possible from the 3 minute trailer shown off by Nintendo.
We discuss the design and look of both the console and its branding, as well as the overall concept of the console. We share our thoughts on the third-party support announced and hinted at by Nintendo as well as what we want from a first-party output.
We close the show by looking at the Virtual Console on Nintendo Switch, the future of both Wii U and 3DS, and what our dream launch title would be.
What is the new Mario game? Can you play the console on a rooftop? Where can I get new Splatoon haircuts? All of these questions and more are answered inside.
