5 Ways I Hope the Switch Improves Over the Wii U
I love the Wii U, but there’s no denying that it wasn’t exactly a resounding success. Here are a few ways I hope the Nintendo Switch is an improvement.
1. Large Library
The Wii U suffered from a lack of third-party support, and that meant its library ended up somewhat small. More than anything else, I want the Switch to have a robust library of games from all genres.
2. Large Virtual Console
Speaking of game libraries, what about older games? The Virtual Console is fantastic,
3. Eshop Gifts
When Nintendo made it possible to buy digital Wii U and 3DS games online to download later, it was a fantastic move. Unfortunately, you can’t give a digital gift to a friend–or even get a digital code to give–which as always disappointed me. A gift function on the Switch would be fantastic.
4. Well-Used Features
There are some Wii U games, like Affordable Space Adventures, that use the Wii U GamePad really well. A lot, however, just used it for a map or solely off-TV play. Although the Nintendo Switch doesn’t have anything quite that noticeable–even the Joy-Con controllers are just controller options–I hope it never ends up feeling as though part of it is pointless.
5. Better Rewards
This has nothing to do with the Wii U specifically, but the My Nintendo program has been fairly lackluster… especially when compared to Club Nintendo before it. Here’s hoping the Nintendo Switch brings in some fantastic new My Nintendo rewards.
These are a few ways I hope the Nintendo Switch will handle things better than than Wii U. What do you think?
