Twitter Reacts to Nintendo Switch Reveal

Nintendo has had a rough time of it recently – what with poor sales of its previous home console, the Wii U, and a distinct lack of killer games – but today’s reveal of its new console, the Nintendo Switch, will have done the Japanese company no harm at all. Twitter has been abuzz since the 15:00 GMT unveiling of the Switch, with fans and critics applauding Nintendo for knocking it out of the park:

Overall, it seems that Nintendo could be on to a winner with the Switch, which is quite the turnaround considering the questions raised by both the company’s prior market performance and the somewhat late reveal of the hardware, considering its launch is less than six months away. What do you think of the Nintendo Switch? Do you like the name? Does the home/portable hybrid concept appeal to you? Or do you think the new console is just the Wii U and the NVIDIA Shield mashed together?
