The Nintendo Switch Lost Some Features Before Its Launch

The Main Point

The Nintendo Switch is a great console, and there are just a few features that everyone wishes it had. But, before the Nintendo Switch launch, it had a few other features that it didn’t launch with. These features mainly weren’t good, so it isn’t really sad that they weren’t in the final design.

The Nintendo Switch is an amazing console. It is portable, you can use it on a TV and it has a huge store of games that you can get. But, there are a few things that everybody wishes it had, such as a 1080p screen. But, maybe we should actually be thankful for the features that we have. At the start of development, the Switch had a few other features that made it a very different console. And, these weren’t good features, so nobody would want these added to the console.

What were these features?

None of these features were really that exciting, and the first of them is horrible. Originally, back in 2014, the Nintendo Switch was going to have only a 480p display. Now, it has a 720p display, and people complain about that. Maybe we should be more thankful for the fact that the Switch at least has a 720p display. The next of these features isn’t as bad, but I don’t think that it would really be useful. This is 3D, which was on the 3DS, and would make it backwards compatible. But, nobody really liked or used 3D on the 3DS, and it hurt some peoples eyes. The third and final feature was two screens, which would have made 480p make more sense. It also would have allowed for 3DS backwards compatibility. But, I prefer one 720p screen over two 480p screens.

Why were they removed?

Nobody, other than the people that actually worked on the console, knows exactly why they removed these features. But, I am very happy that they did. In the end, they ended up making a very good console. Some of these features would have made the console worse, and others would have made it more expensive. Nintendo hasn’t officially confirmed whether these were actually features  that they were going to have, but they do seem like things that Nintendo would consider. All of these features were on the 3DS, so it would make sense for them to try them out on the Switch.
