Ideally, we would have had 1-2-Switch, but the potential of being able to play these motion-control games anywhere is mind blowing. Nintendo of America's Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations Steve Singer said that they are getting their hands with mainstream and independent developers to ensure that the console's goal for enjoyable games and experiences. The console version launches first on Nintendo Switch later this year, with additional content specific to the machine. Unfortunately, that won't be the case.

Well, the good news is that, after using everything that does come with the Nintendo Switch initial purchase and a couple of the optional add-ons, those fears are allayed somewhat.

Talking about his favorite Nintendo games Cena said that he grew up playing Nintendo games such as Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., Urban Champion, Ice Climber, and Gyromite. For a more "classic" experience, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (sold separately) is ideal, and one I enjoyed playing some ULTRA Street Fighter II and the futuristic racer, Fast RMX (which I loved) on. After all, such simple games will have less of a toll on the Switch's battery life when you are on the move, which is the whole point of having a portable console anyway - to play games on the go. There are only a few games at launch, a lot of the promise features aren't available at launch.
