Switchmas Day 5: Online Capibilities


screenshot_15Hello everyone! Today we will be discussing how Online should be handled on the Switch. This will be a shorter and simpler discussion than other articles in the Switchmas series but I feel like this should be discussed and I would rather get this out of the way now, than closer to the event when the hype is building.

Now, the main question going around right now is “Will the Switch continue the tradition of free online gaming?”

To that I have one answer……….I don’t know. I don’t know because  I cannot tell how hard Nintendo plans on pushing online gaming with the Switch. As we know both Mario Kart and Splatoon were featured in the reveal trailer, both being extremely online heavy. But does that mean that more online focused games will be coming to the Switch? Maybe.  I think i’m more sided on the idea that Nintendo will keep their free online system mainly because it makes the Switch a more desirable system to play online games on, that is if the Online servers are good.

I think that covers it for today! I have the rest of the days planned out and you all are in for a treat as we get closer to the reveal event! What do you guys believe will happen online? Do you think it will be free or online? Let me know!

Tomorrow we will be discussing some of the bigger questions about the Nintendo Switch that have yet to be answered. You won’t want to miss it!

  1. I just hope Nintendo makes more Mario games for this console, and that they don’t focus completely on online games. Local play and single player are still options that need attention, of course I know those options will be there, but with this new console I hope that they remember to share the focus with thos areas as well.

    1. I don’t see a future where Nintendo focuses on Online games more than single player. So I think you don’t have to worry

    2. We should definitely see more Mario games in it. With both Console and handheld teams together, expect to see Mario 3D, Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi, Mario Kart, Mario Maker (2D Mario), Dr. Mario, Mario Party, etc. I see no reason why we shouldn’t have one of each at least every 3 years.
