Imagine it or not, Nintendo gave us our very first have a look at its Swap console 4 years in the past right this moment. Blimey.
The video above was shared on 20th October 2016, lastly unveiling the Swap for the entire world to see. Up till its official reveal, it had been closely rumoured that Nintendo’s NX console – because it was codenamed again then – would characteristic removable controllers and would boast a complicated type of rumble suggestions. What a load of garbage, huh?
We vividly keep in mind pre-orders for the console going reside just some months after in January 2017, forward of the console’s correct launch in March. Launch day video games included the likes of 1-2-Swap, Simply Dance 2017 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which – as you will know – went on to be thought to be one of many best video games of all time.
It is really fairly unusual to assume again to a time when the Swap wasn’t round – with Nintendo’s moveable and residential console efforts being smushed into this one machine over the previous few years, and particularly with how profitable the console’s been, it virtually feels just like the Swap is the final Nintendo machine, completely encompassing the perfect bits of consoles passed by.
We’re positive that’ll change when Nintendo decides to drop a brand new system later down the road, however what a journey we have had up to now, eh? Be happy to share your favorite Swap reminiscences within the feedback beneath.
