It’s been over two decades since I last had my own game console – and no, PC does not count as a game console. I had owned a Nintendo and a Sega previously, and that’s about it. Had some fun with the Super Famicon and Playstations, but those were temporary loans from friends and not my own.
The itch in me grew. So about two months back I decided to buy a new game console – the Nintendo Switch. And in this article, you will learn about where to buy a Nintendo Switch in Singapore, the cost and the caveats.
Why a Nintendo Switch and not a Playstation 4?
I had very specific requirements for the next game console and the Nintendo Switch ticked most of the boxes.
- A secondary game console; not a primary.
I have a PC at home which satisfies most of my gaming cravings. I am not invested in the latest AAA titles and so do not need a state of the art PC to keep up with the ever growing demands that these titles need in order to have a good gaming experience.
- A mobile gaming device to replace my mobile phone on those long flights.
I can never be satisfy with the type of games available on the Android platform. Of the games I had played before, they never really provide me the kind of experience I enjoyed. Either the storyline is too shallow, not immersive enough or they will need you to wait for hours for something to be built or to regain energy *face palmed*.
- Availability of genres that I enjoy.
Personally, i enjoy my action RPGs, JRPGs and SLGs. And they are all available on the Switch. Trials of Mana will be available soon, I am halfway through Octopath Traveller and then there are Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and Super Robot Wars T!
- A game console that my wife and friends can all enjoy, together.
There are a mountain of titles available on the Nintendo Switch right now, good “feminine” or party titles.
