Welcome to SwitchCore

Where to begin.

SwitchCore is an idea. An ever evolving, forever changing idea shaped by the minds and the people who influence it. So why create this website and what will we do here? Good question!

A few months back, a Discord channel was created to complement a subreddit dedicated to discussions based on the then code-named “Nintendo NX” (now Nintendo Switch, of course). Within that Discord server, a group of community members banded together to talk, theorize and speculate. Needless to say, the members all became very close very quickly.  Soon, Podcasts starting popping up, hosted live for the growing Switchcord to participate in and Andrew, Evan, Chrissy, Jeremy and Scott wondered where to go next.

After the disassociation with that Subreddit, the members agreed the logical next step to take was to create a website, a kind of hub for all things we love to talk about, namely, video games.

So, though this website is definitely in it’s infancy, we do have some plans for where we want it to go. We will be writing editorials, which has been a common theme if you’ve ever participated in the Discord chat. There will be news – and expect a lot on the Nintendo Switch front leading up to the March release date. There will be reviews, but our review structure will probably be a little different than other sites you probably frequent. We’ll probably throw some video content on here as well.

Once again, the shape and size of this website will change over time, but one thing will always remain. This site will live and thrive because of the community. If we didn’t think we had the support of the community, we wouldn’t be here. Paramount to everything listed above, SwitchCore.net is for the community. We made this for you, and we want to engage and involve every single one of you. Look forward to updates on this project coming in the future, and we’ll see you guys soon.
