The Joy of Gaming Podcast, Episode 61:

Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

On this episode of The Joy of Gaming Podcast, we (Rich and Jordan) discuss Nintendo's highly-anticipated latest console, the Nintendo Switch. The Switch signals a bold new direction for Nintendo, as it incorporates the convenience of a portable gaming system with the power and potential of a home console. The idea is certainly novel, and if this new "hybrid system" can deliver console-quality gaming at home and on the go, it could signal a return to relevance for Nintendo in the home console space after their misfire with the Wii U.

We've had some hands-on time with Nintendo's new console, and offer our thoughts on all aspects - from the overall comfort and usability of the Joy-Cons, to the weight and size of the console, to the games in the launch lineup and beyond (Nindies, what?), and also discuss what it may mean for the future of Nintendo 3DS. And no discussion of the Switch would be complete without talking about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - the launch title to literally end all launch titles. We'll offer our initial thoughts on this massive game, along with some additional gaming news, a segment about the other games we've been playing recently, and a whole lot more.

So join us, as we journey throughout hyrule in search of adventure (and a ridiculous number of Korok Seeds). This...is The Joy of Gaming!
