The latest issue of Nintendo Dream focuses on the Switch, and features an interview with the Big N itself, in which the Japanese gaming giant answered a few questions.
The Switch’s name was one of the topics of discussion. Here’s what Nintendo had to say about it:
“We decided that this name would be the best fit for our product for two reasons. It represents one of the defining features of the Switch, the ability to seamlessly ‘switch’ between the TV screen and Switch’s screen, while also embodying the idea of being a ‘switch’ that will flip, and change the way people experience entertainment in their daily lives.”
Decidedly, Nintendo is pretty confident about the Switch’s capabilities and truly believes that the console will revolutionize entertainment as we know it.
The Big N also spoke about the Switch announcement trailer, and the message that they wanted it to convey:
“We wanted to show people just how much of an enjoyable difference it will make in their entertainment experiences, by having them see and hear for themselves what it can do in an easy-to-digest manner. It allows people to enjoy a home console experience not only in front of a TV, but in rooms with no TV, or outside altogether. And because the controllers are detachable from the main body of the console, each of its forms offer different play experiences for people to enjoy.”
Expect more details about the Switch at Nintendo’s Switch Presentation January 12th.
