News - Nintendo First Revealed The Switch Four Years Ago Today

Nintendo First Revealed The Switch Four Years Ago Today


Believe it or not, Nintendo gave us our very first look at its Switch console four years ago today. Blimey.

The video above was shared on 20th October 2016, finally unveiling the Switch for the whole world to see. Up until its official reveal, it had been heavily rumoured that Nintendo’s NX console – as it was codenamed back then – would feature detachable controllers and would boast an advanced form of rumble feedback. What a load of rubbish, huh?

We vividly remember pre-orders for the console going live just a few months after in January 2017, ahead of the console’s proper launch in March. Launch day games included the likes of 1-2-Switch, Just Dance 2017 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which – as you’ll know – went on to be regarded as one of the greatest games of all time.


It’s actually quite strange to think back to a time when the Switch wasn’t around – with Nintendo’s portable and home console efforts being smushed into this one device over the past few years, and especially with how successful the console’s been, it almost feels like the Switch is the ultimate Nintendo machine, perfectly encompassing the best bits of consoles gone by.

We’re sure that’ll change when Nintendo decides to drop a new system later down the line, but what a journey we’ve had so far, eh? Feel free to share your favourite Switch memories in the comments below.
