The unveiling of the Nintendo Switch yesterday has sent tongue’s wagging. While the console looks great and seems to have a number of great first-party games on the horizon, its price is already turning people away.
The reveal trailer would have done enough on its own to sell Switch, even with such crazy scenes as Mario walking around and engaging with realistically-proportioned humans.
That setting alone has led to an endless stream of online mockery, and even Mario isn’t safe from the illusive meme. Here are my favourites so far.
