Nintendo Switch Sports Launches ‘Party Like It’s 2006’ Trailer
The Switch has been in our homes for over five years now, but with strong current sales and potential plans for a long generation, we’re still seeing some new strategies from Nintendo to keep fans on board. One of them is to return popular and previously dormant IP addresses, for example, Mario Strikers: Battle League and Advance Wars 1+2: New boot camp be examples, and the other is to position the system as a unifying living room system that everyone can use.
Wii Sports is the best example of a game that connects players of all types, and Nintendo Switch Sports hopes to replicate some of the magic. While technology has changed, the concept remains the same – stand in front of the TV with family and friends, waving the controller around.
The launch trailer for “Out Now” captures that vibe, going as far as recreating the vibe of all those Wii commercials in 2006. Photogenic people in very nicely decorated living rooms, everyone is having fun. To be fair, some of our living rooms will have similar scenes this weekend, albeit without all the promotional luxuries.
It will be interesting to see how Nintendo Switch Sports fares – whether the Switch’s user base will be large enough to propel it to success, whether it will skyrocket in the short term, and whether it can join the ranks of “evergreen” games in a system that has been selling consistently for a number of years. years?
Time will tell; let us know in the comments if you plan on picking it up.
