Is The Nintendo Switch Worth The Money You Pay?

Since the unprecedented success of the Nintendo Wii with over 100 million sales, Nintendo has been on the hunt to create the next best console. But with the launch of the Nintendo Switch in 2017 they may have done it. But with only 49.79 million units sold worldwide, they are still a way off the success of the Wii, but is the switch worth the money that you pay?


The Perfect Hybrid Console 

If you are looking for the power of a console that you can take on your travels with you then the Nintendo Switch is ideal. With the ability to dock your switch and play on the big TV as well as a handheld console or in desktop mode, this is the perfect all-round console. In addition to this, it is light to carry allowing you to pack it in a suitcase or handbag to play all your favourite games even when travelling.

Upcoming Game Releases 

In addition to the playability element, there are a number of new game releases that have many Nintendo fans excited for 2020. With the recent release of an old classic Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training at the beginning of the year, there are a number of other titles that many are excited for such as:

  • Devil May Cry 3
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  • Lego Starwars: the Skywalker Saga
  • The Outer Worlds

If you are a fan of mythical creatures and games such as Age of the Gods Norse King of Asgard then there are a number of other games such as Skyrim available on this title that you will enjoy. Alternatively, there are a number of Lego games and open-world titles for you to choose from. This is completely up to you.

Bundles Available 

Though this console may seem expensive at first, there are a number of bundles that are available that can aid in cutting the costs. When looking for a bundle to cut costs, there are a number of options from multiple retails including Nintendo themselves.

With Amazon and Curry’s both providing affordable deals with both headsets and games included, this is an affordable option that ranges between £219 – £295 depending on the option. On the other hand, there is the option of building your own console Bundle with Nintendo. AS part of this bundle you get the switch, a game and a case for £330. If you don’t fancy building your own bundle, there are a number of pre-made options on the site ranging from the upcoming animal crossing release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Diablo.

The Only Way To Play Nintendo Exclusives

If you are a fan of Mario and Zelda then it is important to note that the Switch is the only way that you can play these Nintendo exclusive titles, and for that reason. With Legends of Zelda taking over when the console launched in 2017, there have since been a number of Mario titles and a new Zelda game released.


There are also many others such as Mario Odyssey, Mario Party and Super Mario Bros U Deluxe that are exclusive to this console. This makes it ideal for both adults and younger audiences as there are games available for all age ranges as well as games like Mario Kart that you can play together, making this the perfect console to take with you on a holiday.

Family Friendly fun

If you are looking to buy a switch for your children this year, this is ideal for the family. With 2 consoles you can use 4 joy-cons to enjoy games remotely. With Mario Kart, 1-2 Switch and Super Mario Bros all allowing up to 8 players. This is perfect for a holiday abroad as you can bring the console with you and enjoy a family game night.

In addition, your kids can play games such as Fortnite together online on two separate consoles allowing you to keep them occupied throughout a long trip or even on a rainy day.

Whether you are looking to play the Nintendo exclusives, or you are looking for a new way to game as a family, this console is the perfect all in one console for the whole family, making this a worthwhile investment in our opinion.
