The first Nintendo Switch reviews are in

Since then though, Chucklefish has clarified that multiplayer won't be shipping with the Nintendo Switch version of the game this Summer. The latest is from alistdaily, who interviewed Nintendo America President Reggie Fils-Aime.

Nintendo has shipped preview consoles around the world and its review embargo lifted overnight, meaning the first write-ups are in.

Those are the only two showing, and now searching for other games returns no results, so this Coming Soon display seems to have been an area missed by Nintendo when blocking info on the eShop pre-launch.

"It's true pre-orders are very strong, but we still expect Nintendo Switch to be available at some retailers on Day One", Nintendo U.K. executive Nicolas Wegnez told MCV.

When I published my review of the Nintendo Switch this morning, I had no idea what the eShop looked like. However, with Nintendo Switch, the unique appeal of our "anywhere, anytime, anyway" approach is readily apparent. Though we do know that Nintendo's painful Friends Code system is making a comeback. There are also many extra costs too - a larger SD card is essential, the Pro controller is recommended for home use, and an external powerbank is worthwhile on the go. You'll be seeing this in a number of ways, but most importantly to gamers, it means a steady flow of big first-and-third-party franchises becoming available to play on the system in 2017.

Anyway, Switch: it has all the thing you'd hope it would have in this day and age.

There have been some tweets and discussions on the internet that the cartridges from the Switch have been coated in a substance that makes them taste foul so that children wouldn't try to swallow them.

The Nintendo Switch will launch on March 3. GameStop is offering some special trade-in deals through March 19 to help celebrate the launch of the new innovative gaming system.
