How Nintendo Switch’s Portability Has Defined Its Dominance

The Nintendo Switch is the US’s fastest-selling console ever, and one year after its release, it’s fair to call the system’s launch a smash success with gamers. While great games in classic franchises, like Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, certainly play a large roll in its success, the one feature that has defined its dominance is its portability. It’s a versatile piece of hardware that, much like a smartphone or tablet, can feasibly be taken anywhere we go, while also delivering a high-quality home console experience. Check out our video above to see how the Switch’s portability has changed the game for Nintendo.

Of course, the Nintendo Wii U was also a console with a portable screen attached to the controller. But the Switch has taken portability to the next level. The hardware has changed how we think of games being released on the system, too. Its unique design has meant people are hungry for older games to be ported to the console.

For new games released on multiple consoles, the Switch’s portability has also given it a considerable competitive advantage. Celeste, one of 2018’s early Game of the Year contenders, was released on all major platforms, but the Switch version is currently outselling them all, despite having a smaller install base. People are seeing the Switch as the best way to play certain games, and the portability of the console is definitely a contributing factor.

To celebrate the Switch’s one year anniversary, we’re taking a big look at the console’s journey to this point, and what we’re hoping to see from Nintendo in the years to come. Check out our video on the few but substantial ways Nintendo missed the mark with the Switch’s release, and the five Wii U games that definitely deserve a second chance on the Switch.
