More interesting tidbits about the Nintendo Switch have been recently revealed. However, while we won’t see an official Nintendo Direct on it until January 13th, some news (and a neat surprise for a talk show host) is welcoming. So I´m going to walk you through the latest news of the Nintendo Switch, and give my thoughts on it (plus some “other” matters). So here we go!

siguro miyamoto approves the switch

The Switch got Miyamoto approved during its first TV debut at Jimmy Fallon´s show.

The final development kits for the Nintendo Switch have been sent out to selected developers who are supposedly no different from the previous ones, so any current projects for the system may not see any setbacks. As for battery life expectancy, the three-hour lifespan that has been circulating discussions is what is currently estimated on the development kits. Nintendo’s target range for the battery with the retail models is expected to be between five to eight hours, depending on the user’s settings. This is impressive for a high-performance portable system, though gamers that invest a lot of game time, like myself, will burn through those hours in no time. Still, this is better than what was speculated when the console is not docked.

The moment when Jimmy Fallon is informed by Reggie Fils-Aimé that THE Siguro Miyamoto is sitting in his audience to watch him play “Super Mario Run”.

Speaking of the dock it will provide additional performance for the Nintendo Switch when it´s placed on top of the station. The console and the dock will connect via USB-C and allow it to run at a higher clock speed to output a higher resolution for HDTVs. The dock will also have a small cooling fan to keep the unit cooled while preventing anything catching fire. This was presumed sometime after the announcement, and it looks like it may handle the load.

The Nintendo Switch is looking better by the month. Now if there’s a trailer for Pokémon Stars.

Sure, this may not be something that will have anything new to offer on the system’s feature. Nevertheless, a segment of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” had an interesting twist. You see, on the show, Reggie Fils-Aimé show cased the upcoming “Super Mario Run” title for iOS devices with the host. However, to Fallon’s surprise, this was also going to be the first television reveal of the Switch, with Siguro Miyamoto in the audience to watch the event. The Nintendo Switch showcase put its features in action, except for taking off the Joy Cons from the side of the console (though it was mentioned). The announcement trailer may have shown what it’s supposed to do, but seeing it played around on “The Tonight Show” made the concept more real to me. It was an entertaining segment to watching, seeing an excited Jimmy, Reggie, and Miyamoto on the show while some gameplay from both “Super Mario Run” and “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.” I’d say it’s even enough to get you hyped about the console more if you watched it.

I suppose seeing is believing in some cases, because it’s one thing to watch an announcement and another to see the product in action.

There is still more news to come in January when the Direct for the Switch goes live but having new information beforehand is welcoming for the time being. Even so, if you need a boost over the holiday. Then just watch Jimmy getting giddy with the Switch console on YouTube (you will find the video down below). Well, at least the video got me more ecstatic for the console (though how and when I can get it, myself remains unseen).

What do you think about the Nintendo Switch so far? Leave a comment and join in on the discussion.
