Nintendo Switch has launched. This console should have renewed the importance of Nintendo – as a company – and their products, introducing innovative features. Even if this happened, the console is still connected to the past some ways.
Nintendo Switch’s day one update has released today and it has introduced the Friend Codes.
Basically, you need to ask people for their codes in order to add them (just like previous consoles) and the worst part of it all is you won’t be able to add more than 300 users.
This is a huge step back from the innovative path undertaken by the Kyoto based company, and it’s quite strange, in 2017, to deal with friends limit.
Anyway, there could be possibilities of Nintendo getting rid of the limit, but we’ll have to wait for some time.
However, it seems that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild has no touch support, contrary to what happens with the Wii U version of the game.
Nintendo has explained this choice with an official statement:
During the development of Breath of The Wild Wii U, we had touch features implemented as you have seen… Once we began to develop the Switch version, we aimed to provide the same gameplay experience across both on Switch and Wii U… In doing our testing without the touch features we noticed looking back and forth between the Gamepad and the screen actually took a little something away from this type of Zelda game.
This move might probably be the smartest, but not everyone thinks so.
Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild are available worldwide.
