The Nintendo Switch Isn’t For Everyone

Three. More. Weeks.  Not that we’re counting or anything.

If you couldn’t tell, all of us over here at Switchcore are beyond ready for the Switch.  I mean, hell, our site is named after the thing and has been dominated by Switch related content (more to come, by the way).

But enough with the awkward prefaces.  Though most of the people I talk to on a daily basis and interact with in my personal life are excited for the Switch, there are, of course, some people out there who couldn’t be less interested.  Whether it be the complaints about battery life or seemingly low system specifications, they just couldn’t give a damn.  Which leads me to the title of this post.  The Nintendo Switch isn’t for everyone.  And you know what? That’s okay. Read More »

Yooka-Laylee Makes the Switch

Yooka-Laylee, the highly anticipated spiritual sequel to the Banjo-Kazooie series, has been confirmed for release on April 11th, 2017.   However, not all the news was happily received by some fans as Playtonic Games revealed that due to “unforeseen technical issuesYooka-Laylee will not be released on the Wii U.   Instead, Playtonic will be “working closely with Nintendo” to release Yooka-Laylee on the upcoming Nintendo Switch.

When later asked, in a GamesIndustry interview, if the Nintendo Switch had any influence on them cancelling the Wii U version, Playtonic responded,“No, Switch had nothing to do with the decision. As we have shared, it’s simply down to unforeseen technical difficulties… We can assure you this was a hard decision for everyone. Our team has so much combined Nintendo heritage and we’re huge Nintendo fans as individuals. That’s why we’re working hard to make things right for our backers and with Nintendo and Playtonic’s fanbase over the coming weeks and months.”

To those who backed the Wii U version on Kickstarter, Playtonic is giving the opportunity to move their backing to any of the upcoming versions releasing on April 11th, 2017 (free of charge) or upgrade to the Nintendo Switch version as more information is release in 2017.  Stay tuned to their blog for more information on how to make the switch.

While to many it may seem like Playtonic is making cop-out excuses, we have already seen that the Nintendo Switch is a much more capable device than the Wii U.  Personally, I’m excited to see how the game performs on the Switch and if there are any exclusives features (besides the ability to play on the go) that we can look forward to.

Yooka-Laylee launches on April 11th, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux, while details on the date for the Nintendo Switch release have not been confirmed.
