It appears Nintendo Switch will have motion controls, following a leak made during GameStop's investor relations call. This new feature, together with several game titles that Nintendo could consider, will make the game console more attractive.
According to IGN, GameStop CEO Paul Raines may have hinted about Nintendo Switch's motion controls while he was discussing how the console could expand Nintendo's gaming audience. Nintendo has been quiet about any features the Switch may have that wasn't shown in the console's reveal trailer.
"A movement-related game is more fun for kids," Raines said. "You know, taking those accessories off - [the detachable Joy-Con pads] - you can really do a lot of interesting things with that in gameplay."
If indeed Nintendo puts motion controls in the Nintendo Switch, It's not something that's unexpected, considering that Nintendo already included these features in the Wii and Wii U. A lot of Wii U games are also seemingly going to be available on the Nintendo Switch, so it makes sense for the console to have motion controls.
Aside from the usual Nintendo games that utilize motion controls, NowLoading is mentioning five more interesting games that could appear in the Nintendo Switch's lineup of games and take advantage of the motion controls. These games, though not hardcore or serious, would provide players with a fun and exciting experience using the motion control feature and make Nintendo Switch more attractive.
First on the list is "Pokemon Snap," which could utilize motion controls well, as seen with "Pokemon Sun and Moon." Another is a zombie game that is similar to the "ZombiU," which perfectly showed how fun a properly utilized motion control can be in a game.
Third on the list is a sequel to "Splatoon," a third-person shooter game that could also help Nintendo get one foot in e-sports. The fourth is a remake of "Star Fox" that is more similar to "Star Fox 64," but make motion control optional for players.
Last on the list is a "Super Monkey Ball," or any game that is similar to this one. Making this game available in motion control would be a fun experience for players.
These game, if done right, have the potential to make the Nintendo Switch more interesting and attractive for players. Raines also said that Nintendo players and fans have always preferred physical media over digital downloads.
So providing more interesting game titles that would take advantage of motion controls increases the players' interest. Hopefully, Nintendo does confirm during the Nintendo Direct on January 2017 that the Nintendo Switch, does have motion controls.
