    You should check ReviewtechUSA's review on this on youtube. He does a video based entirely on the target audience.

    Smart advertising, if you want to appeal to the kids, appeal to the adults who the kids wanna be like. And the adults will like the Switch too seeing it's not being marketed as a Fischer price toy (like the Wii U) and more like a modern device.

    Also: people who want good framerates from a portable console with full 3D games. I've even tried a GPD Win, and I might buy one for the purposes of a mini-laptop and light indie gaming, but everything is like 15-20 FPS for full 3D games. With the settings you have to use, everything both looks and runs better on Switch.

    Literally not a single one. Come to think about it, maybe they are advertising just as much as for the Wii U?

    all that talk the WiiU flopped from a lack of effective advertising was clearly off base. The Switch rarely sees advertising and is doing well.

    Erm. Nintendo, at least as of August, spent more on TV ads than any other gaming company had. I know I see them pretty regularly on NBC's commercial slots, and I have younger cousins that watch a lot of Disney Channel that tell me Switch ads end up there a lot too

    Jeez, don't even ask... every single day its passing Nintendo Switch commercials on TV...

    Anyway I wish nintendo ever have more 18+ stuff as I don't like basically 95% of all games, I wish they could ever make their own Forza\GT like game, more shooters, more horror\terror games and even something like battlefield, but I just wished it had more multiplatform triple A known games from PC\other consoles.

    From the way its going, I don't see anything like Wolfenstein II masterpiece coming any soon, it will probably take years for something like it to come as I don't see any new game coming to PC and PS4 being ported to Switch, only some indie or crap games are ported ;).

    They want children to buy it but commercials all feature 20-30yo hipsters and soyboys.

    I guess they are right though. Those are the nintendo fans that actually buy everything they put out.

    What? Nintendo's stated that they want the Switch to be an "all ages" console, while the 3DS platform stays as their "young gamer" systems

    there were plenty of wii u ads, they just aired on kids shows and stuff you were probably too "mature" for, dude

    those ads are total bullshit, cause I never saw fat pointdexter with acne in them.
    Then again, nothing will be more BS, than MS' ad for Kinect, where they portrait it like some sort of super advanced AI akin to Space Odyssey.
