Nintendo Switch hands on: Zelda, Mario Kart, Arms and more

Nintendo invited KitGuru to London last week to have a hands-on session with its upcoming Nintendo Switch console and we were more than happy to oblige. While we weren’t hugely impressed with the games on show, there were still a few interesting titles that we think are worth taking a closer look at and we captured some footage just for you guys.

The Nintendo Switch is launching with a few exciting games, most prominently Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, though we also got to play some post-launch titles like the enhanced Mario Kart 8, Splatoon 2 and Arms, among others. In this extended look at some of those games, I talk you through my experiences with them and what the more interesting features of them are.

Apologies for some of the video quality, the event was packed, it was very hot and sticky and our camera seemed to be overheating, so there are little ‘judders’ a few times in the video.

This is designed as a companion piece for my more in-depth written coverage of the hands-on, so be sure to read through that if you want a little more information on specific games, as well as the hardware and what it’s like to use.

KitGuru Says: What do you think of the games Nintendo had available at the hands-on and are set for the launch of the new system? I can’t help but feel that I would have liked to have seen a couple more high-end or Nintendo AAA titles. 1-2 Switch should be bundled with the system too, though Nintendo claims it will be a full-price launch title instead.
