GAME Show Confidence In Nintendo Switch Success

GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs has shown confidence that Nintendo Switch will continue to be a success for Nintendo, reasoning that, after playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in Handheld Mode, consumers understand the console’s concept “in a nanosecond.”

The critical acclaim that Link’s open-air adventure received has only helped to spur interest in Nintendo Switch, as well as knowing that games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey will release in the coming months.

“The appetite that we have seen for the [Nintendo] Switch console has, I think, been driven around the usability and exactly what the console is. You only have to play Zelda on-the-move – as you will have done – and you get it in a nanosecond,” Gibbs explained to GamesIndustry.biz.

“For me, it is worth the money just to get that [Zelda] experience in a large-screen mobile version. The concept is very strong and obviously having a launch game with a Metacritic of 97 is wholly helpful. I think the fact that we know what games are coming – we know we have Mario Kart, and then Splatoon 2 and then Super Mario Odyssey – is a good reason why people want to buy the console.”

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will release exclusively on Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America on April 28th.
