I was lucky enough to acquire a Nintendo Switch on launch. Since I travel a lot for work, I figured it would be right up my alley. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Unfortunately Zelda is really the only game worth playing that’s out right now, so if you’re not a fan of Zelda, then don’t bother quite yet. I feel that I should also mention you’re going to need some accessories – the Pro Controller would be my first purchase as I’m not a fan of the Joy Cons at all. Second, you should definitely get a tempered glass screen protector, I personally bought the amFilm 2 pack for $10 and it works amazing. Lastly, I would recommend you pick up the Hybrid Cover. I originally bought the playstand, but this works much better while traveling and it protects the screen when it’s stowed away from dust and scratches.
So far the battery has lasted me a 3 hour flight with about 15% to spare, I don’t generally travel beyond that, but if you’re going to – hopefully your airline has either an outlet or you brought something else to do. Overall I’m satisfied with my purchase, I just wish there was more of a game selection. With the exception of Mario Kart in the near future, there’s really not a lot on the horizon other than Splatoon 2.
