It’s time for the Kotaku Splitscreen episode you’ve been waiting for: Our thoughts on the Nintendo Switch.


This week, Kirk and I blaze through some belated 2017 predictions (Final Fantasy XVI! Scorpio! Half-Life VR!) and then react to everything we’ve learned about the Switch, which I got a chance to play last Friday.

You can listen to this week’s episode on iTunes or Google Play, or directly here. (MP3 download here.) Reach us at splitscreen@kotaku.com with any and all questions, 2017 guest requests, and fan art.

Personally, I want to be disappointed in the Switch, but it has just too much potential as a handheld for me to care. I would have preferred if Nintendo pitched the console as a handheld first and console second, but that would eat into its 3DS sales. So we’ll see where the console ends up landing this year and next.

It does have a paltry launch lineup and no real clear direction of what games are coming the following year (such as Metroid or Pokemon), but I’m still excited for its potential. May not get one on launch, but I do hope the console does well.
