<p>We're all very excited in the aftermath of Nintendo's bite-sized reveal of the hybrid console Nintendo Switch. However it looks like not everyone's convinced as Nintendo's shares dropped mildly after the features failed to impress some tougher investors.</p><p>Despite its 3.3% rise in the lead up to the Switch's reveal, shares slipped by 6% on Friday morning, leaving a bit of an elephant in its wake. The biggest question on everyone's minds at the moment is whether Nintendo can make the Switch a success after the poorly-received Wii U crashed out.</p><p>A report by the Financial Times today brought about an important point from the mouth of Serkan Toto, a games industry consultant about the potential price and audience of the console. "They must find a way to release the Switch at US$299 to stand a chance, that's the threshold. It's not impossible by offering the device in multiple versions. Who else but diehard Nintendo fans will buy the Switch?"</p><p>Where the Wii U seemed to be aimed at children in its reveal in 2011, the Nintendo Switch was played by adults/young adults in its trailer – possibly attempting to appeal to gamers from the late 80s/early 90s who grew up with the Game Boy and SNES, etc.</p><p>Another quite surprising factor is that Nintendo is opening its doors slightly wider and partnering with a variety of different publishers/developers. Whilst that's great news all around, it also brings a whole new issue into the ring – how will the Switch be any different/more desirable to the general market than the PS4/Pro, PC, and other platform gamers.</p><p>Of course, with Nintendo being Nintendo they're not in trouble yet. Thanks to a huge 50% rise in shares from Pokemon GO (hah) earlier this year, they've got a little bit of wriggle room, especially with their new entrance into the mobile game market. Let's just hope they've really thought this one through come March 2017.</p>
