Super Mario Odyssey is one of Nintendo’s latest and most successful additions to the classic Mario Brothers game series. The game received The Game Award for Best Family Game in 2017, sold more than two million copies within four days after release, and was given a rating of 10/10 from IGN. Needless to say, that’s pretty damn impressive. The only feature that holders of the game thought was missing was online multiplayer functionality. But Nintendo has reached out to their community, and recently announced a solution to be released in early February.
Nintendo’s breathtaking device that sold 10 million copies in under a year, the Nintendo Switch.
Although Nintendo company has spoken in the last few hours about some games coming to Nintendo Switch from other consoles in the house such as GameCube, Wii or WiiU, many of its fans expected some kind of compatibility in the new Final Console It can not be, Something that, seeing the hardware of the machine that will come out on March 3, becomes more evident.
It has been the president of Nintendo that has closed any option to a possible backwards compatibility of Nintendo Switch: “In some cases, systems games can be relaunched for Nintendo Switch as improved versions with respect to the original games. And that’s it. remasterización yes. Retrocompatibility no.
As we can see, you did not have to be too smart to know that Nintendo’s plans with Switch did not go through making a retro-compatible machine. And we do not say it for its graphic power, which is surely above Wii and Wii to launch any of its games, but because it is physically impossible to do.
Firstly because if GameCube, Wii and Wii U became compatible with each other, the first with the second and the second with the third, was by the presence of a disk drive, which allows us to insert and play quietly. But as you know, Nintendo Switch is impossible. What’s bought in digital and we could play it? Well the same, but from the company will have thought that doing that favours one format over another and that is not the policy they want to follow.
Remastered, the new reef
This remasters policy yes, backwards compatibility was not seen since the first moment in the announcement of the console a few weeks ago, when we saw images of Skyrim, a now old game that makes it seems that Bethesda is preparing for the new console , It is about Of a remastering like the one we saw last year for Xbox One and PS4.
We hope that in addition to all things Nintendo and third parties make a good original catalogue with names that decide to leave in Nintendo Switch because they trust the machine and its possibilities. And not because it is easy to remaster a game of four, five or more years ago to get them from 40 to 80 dollars.
Video games lovers have marked the calendar on Friday, January 13, as Nintendo will present its new console in London for the press and in japan and New York for the public.
The Nintendo Switch is a highly anticipated console, as the company former president, Satoru Iwata, announced it in March 2015, that is, almost two years ago. The code name of the project was Nintendo NX and since then many people wanted to know more details about the console of this Japanese brand.
According to Europa Press reports, the Nintendo Switch will cost around 250 euro, Which would rise to 300 if a game is added to the console, and will go on sale in March. The new console is hybrid, it can be a desktop device but at the same time it is portable. That allows us to start a game at home but, if we have to leave, we do not have to leave it halfway, we can continue on the go.
The console is formed by different modules that can be gathered and separated according to the liking of the player. The user can connect the console body to a stand that connects to the television and plug in the controls to form a control like the traditional ones.
But at the same time, the controls can be mounted on the Nintendo Switch and turn it into a seemingly powerful portable console. The controls are wireless and the intention of Nintendo is to create a series of accessories that are going to make the experience of the users get constantly better, with additional products and elements that will allow better enjoyment of the game.
Nintendo has yet to confirm the specifications and accessories that will be compatible with Switch. It is already known with almost total certainty that the brain of the console is a chip of Nvidia, the Tegra X1. This turns it into a device with less power on paper than PS4 or Xbox One.
Nintendo bets one more time on cartridges games, which will have a memory capacity of about 32GB. The basic package of the console will include the controls and the screen and, if you want to have the dock to play in desktop mode, you will have to buy it separately. But to clear all the doubts and know all the details we just have to wait a few more hours.
