What is Nintendo Switch’s satisfaction level? 

In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu, specialist gaming shops were asked the satisfaction level of the Nintendo Switch. They received 82 valid responses:-

Very Satisfied 12 (14.6%)
Mostly Satisfied 25 (30.5%)
Normal 21 (25.6%)
Slightly Dissatisfied 6 (7.3%)
Dissatisfied 18 (22%)

Some other points: customer inquiries are more prominent than any hardware released in the past several years, the customer base is wide and the response is very positive, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is very popular, not enough hardware and accessories available, portability not found in the Wii U is good, and a relative high age group buying the system than a low age group. 

What do you expect from future software? 

Splatoon 2 received 50 votes and is seen as the ‘killer title’ with ‘explosive’ hardware sales expected when it launches. Many players have bought the Switch for this title already. Positive feedback over the Global Testfire. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe received 37 votes and is praised as a family title and is the most frequently pre-ordered title. The next anticipated titles are Dragon Quest XI, ARMS, Fire Emblem Musou, Super Mario Odyssey and Spelunker.

What do you want from Nintendo Switch? 

Retailers are wanting a steady supply of hardware. This is a common theme iterated by most. Lack of accessories (Joy-Con charging grip is name-checked) is also disappointing. There is also a concern over the lack of women’s titles, a lack of family titles and a lack of third-party titles. Tabletop and mobile mode are wanted to be utilised more.
