[Let’s Talk] Future feature additions on Switch
Posted on April 8, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk
Switch’s launch took place just over a month ago. With that in mind, I thought it might be interesting to have a discussion about features we’d like to see added in the future.
Switch’s OS is incredibly slick and fast, but it’d be tough to say that it isn’t lacking a bit in terms of features. If there’s one thing I’ve seen, it’s that users want the ability to manage saves and transfer them. With Switch already supporting some browser functionality – such as when you connect to certain hotspots – a dedicated internet browser wouldn’t hurt. You’ll also always have some Switch owners who’d like to be able to watch video content on the likes of Netflix.
Those are just a few random ideas. What features do you hope to see implemented in Switch in the future? Share your thoughts with us below.
Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – April 2017
I’m still playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild and chances are I’ll be playing it next month too. What a game.
I’m playing and loving Zelda. Once I beat it, I’ll start again in hard mode.
Still playing Zelda. I just decided to tackle Ganon after 65 shrines. I am not a completionist so I knew I was never going to try to find all the seeds or all the shrines or upgrade all the armor. If Ganon turns out to be impossible for me, I’ll go work on a few more shrines.
All that said, I am absolutely loving this game. It has kept my full attention since launch and I will probably beat the story sometime here in the next two or three days. A solid month of gameplay for me is a total success and I am completely okay with waiting 28 days for Mario Kart.
This actually plays right into what I’ve said in the past about the indie games filling gaps between the major releases for me. While I wait for MK8D, I’m probably going to try Snake Pass and Frontier Days. This is a perfect example of why I’ve felt the Switch’s release schedule is pretty good. I feel like most gamers haven’t finished Zelda yet and by the time they do, they may have just a few weeks before the next big release comes out.
I have been playing a lot of Zelda. I’ve unlocked every section of the map and have most armor upgrades, but I still have two divine beasts and 40 shrines left to complete. I have so much fun just exploring that I am in no hurry to complete the game.
I hadn’t played Splatoon Wii U in months, but the testfire inspired me to go back. I have been playing a lot to practice for Splatoon 2, and I finally reached level 50. I mostly play with Shooters and Blasters, but I have been learning to use Chargers effectively. The limitations of chargers I think have made me a better all around player.
I haven’t touched my 3DS since the Switch came out, but I am definitely going to get FE:Echoes. I do play a lot of FE:Heroes though. The special events have been pretty generous with free orbs and I’m now up to seven 5-star characters.
Nintendo Badge Arcade.
