Gamers Line Up in Tokyo After Global Release of Nintendo Switch


Hundreds of eager gamers in Tokyo queued up for hours just so they could get their hands on Nintendo's new game console, the Nintendo Switch, which was released globally on Friday. Nintendo's next generation game console went on sale for 30,000 yen in Japan, or about $262. It features a removable screen that lets gamers add detachable controllers, allowing it to work both as console for the TV and a portable handheld system for gaming on the go. Nintendo, a Kyoto-based company, aims to sell more than two million consoles in the first month, after a disappointing number of sales for its previous console, the Wii U. However, reviews of the new Switch console have mostly been positive so far and nearly all reviewers are unanimously positive about the new title game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is one of the biggest draws to the new system. Legend of Zelda fans will have to buy the Switch in order to be able to enjoy the latest title in the franchise. However, reviewers point to a slim selection of games and a potential repeat of network problems faced by the Wii U as factors that may put a dent in Switch sales.
