We are very much a Nintendo family. A few Halloweens ago, I even had a Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach to trick or treat with. Sure, they’ve grown since then but so has their Nintendo love.
On March 3rd Nintendo will launch Nintendo Switch and over the weekend my three older kids got to test out the new gaming console and many of the launch games at a special Nintendo Switch event here in Manhattan.
Help was on hand to assist with the game play and to learn the console and Joy con. My nine year old was beyond happy to hear all Nintendo Switch could do.
I have two reasons to be excited to bring Nintendo Switch into our family. Up to eight controllers can play! That has always been a big deal as a mom of four. And now we won’t have that as a concern. Also, the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls smart device app controls which games your kids can play, how long and how late they can play and whether they can post screenshots to social media. Restrictions can also be set for Nintendo eShop via your Nintendo Account.
