The Super Nintendo Entertainment System will always hold a special place in my heart. That being said, the Nintendo Switch is leaps and bounds better as a console than the SNES could have ever hoped to be. Nintendo has been very smart with the Switch, releasing at least one first-party game at least every month. The games are phenomenal, such as Breath of the WildSuper Mario Odyssey, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, to name a few. All have catapulted the Switch to be one of the best, if not the best, console of this generation. What’s better is that Nintendo is doing their own thing and not worrying about the competitors. And the future is bright too. Breath of the Wild 2 is on the way, as well as Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, which promise to be smash hits. A new Mario is bound to be on the horizon. The future is nothing but bright. It was also announced recently that the Switch has officially surpassed the Super Nintendo’s sales record, which is a huge accomplishment. This leaves the system third in terms of sales among Nintendo hardware, just behind the NES and the Wii systems. The Nintendo Switch is the best Nintendo console, not just because of sales, but because of a myriad of reasons.

The Switch is a lot of fun. One of the things that the Switch has done to differentiate it from its competitors is its emphasis on indie games. There are so many games available, physical and digitally, of both independent games and games developed by smaller developers and Japanese publishers/developers. This allows the Switch to have a comprehensive library with something for everyone. There are also excellent ports of mature games, such as Doom, the latest Wolfenstein game, and a Resident Evil collection. And, of course, Nintendo’s first-party lineup. ZeldaMarioSplatoonFire Emblem, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, Pokemon, Luigi’s Mansion, Xenoblade, Smash Bros.; the list goes on. Nintendo has done a fantastic job spacing out their releases, unlike the disaster that was the N64 and even the Wii, to a certain extent. Nintendo finally knows what they are doing and the Switch has, arguably, the best lineup of software of any Nintendo platform.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Sells over 200k Copies in Japan

I love my Super Nintendo and up to this point, it was my favorite Nintendo console. This has changed with the Nintendo Switch. It is vastly superior and the portability factor is a huge incentive (just don’t lose mine as I did!) The future is even brighter. With games like Bravely DefaultBreath of the Wild 2, and Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition on the horizon (and undoubtedly much more!), the Switch is poised to cement itself as one of the best, if not the best, console of all-time. Forget numbers – the Nintendo Switch is selling great but started from behind. Despite this, it’s outsold the Xbox One. This is an amazing feat. Sales don’t always translate to greatness though. The PlayStation 4 is a fantastic console, but arguably, the Switch is better in terms of its consistent first-party games and its portability factor.

The Nintendo Switch is the best Nintendo console, as well as one of the best consoles of our time. Its innovation, game library, and portability all make for a special gaming experience that you can not find on any platform, past or present.
