Unless you’ve been too busy or living under a rock by now you must have heard the news of Nintendo’s modular console or as other may call a “console on- the-go”.

A good portion of the gaming community seems to say that after the Wii, the Wii U struggled to appeal to the current generation, and the lack of third party support further hindered the chances of Nintendo keeping up with Microsoft and Sony in the sales category.

With the Switch, Nintendo plans to attack the handheld and mobile markets that have been chipping away at their fan base. The aforementioned reason may have been what ultimately pushed Nintendo (along with Niantic) to release Pokemon GO for Android (Google based) and iOS (Apple based) mobile platforms as well as the new Mario game that will release at a later date for iOS devices only.
