Nintendo Switch trailer shows multiplayer fun

Nintendo of America, A guest enjoys playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the groundbreaking new Nintendo Switch at a special preview event in NY on January 13, 2017. The mobile software will connect to the game and its goal is to allow "players to set play appointments with friends who have been added to their Nintendo Switch friend list or via their social media accounts". This is a toolkit that many developers use to build 3D games on consoles, PC, and mobile platforms.

The key here is learning that it's the Vancouver team, who in the past have been responsible for the Wii U edition of the game. I could see Iwata's touch in all of the Switch's features and experiences: the infinite possibilities of fun with 1-2 Switch, the unique transforming tablet and JoyCons combo, the ability to take the Switch anywhere and play it with anyone at any time.

While there are a handful of games coming our way with the console, one game that people are very excited to see is Splatoon 2. The company also added that in the new Switch Console.

Working out exactly where Nintendo stands on VR can be hard, especially when one of its most prolific employees makes statements like this. That makes the Switch the first Nintendo console since the GameCube to offer true LAN play, and is yet another sign that Nintendo is taking local multiplayer seriously this time around with the Switch.

Although the Switch doesn't have a huge catalog of launch titles, players will no longer need to wait months to get their hands on the biggest game. Or, for example, because you can take the Joy-Con off the system, then I guess that leaves open the possibility of something else that might get attached.

Nintendo will take its next stab at becoming number one in the industry when the Nintendo Switch launches on March 3 for $299.
