When I first heard about the Nintendo Switch, I didn’t understand it. I am notoriously thick, so when a rumour went around that the next Nintendo would be like the Wii U but inside out, I couldn’t even picture it. Would we have to stand inside the tablet somehow? I saw wires tangling everywhere. Not fun.
Then came the lifestyle adverts. I still didn’t understand it. People playing with Nintendo’s new console on rooftop gatherings and in trendy restaurants with exposed brick on the walls?
