The Switch is Not Backwards Compatible

One comment


Coming from a Translated Famitsu Interview with Nintendo:

“Famitsu: Is the Switch compatible with some of the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS titles? “

“Nintendo: Since the Nintendo Switch is not a Wii U or Nintendo 3DS successor machine, you can not play with Wii U disk software and Nintendo 3DS card.”

So it sounds like you won’t be able to play any previous Nintendo game cartridges on the Switch. Discs are obviously out of the question since there is no disc slot on it.

What are your thoughts on this new development?
