    Is a slogan needed?

    What was the Wii U's slogan? What was the Wii's?
    What was the DS's? Touch Generation?
    What was the Gamecube's?

    I think they already have a good marketing visual (the rectangles with a circle in them & a red background).

    The Nintendo Switch is already visually (and practically) distinctive to everything else. A slogan just sounds corny to me. All around the world they should continue showing the Switch trademark logo and continue showing how it can be used and what games you can get for it. If they do that, then they are good.

    Under a rock
    Off the top of my head,
    Wii U- "What U will play next"
    Wii- "Wii would like to play"
    DS- "Touching is good" (I shit you not, that was an official marketing campaign)
    GameCube- I THINK "Born to play"? I might be wrong on that though

    But yes, as long as I can remember/have read about Nintendo (and every major console maker for that matter) has had a tag line on release

    why
    after reading this thread switch no longer feels like a word anymore

    the gamecube had such weird commercials, but from a quick research "Life's a game" and "born to play"

    Thanks for that. One or two of those are vaguely familiar. I remember seeing "Touch Generations" or "Touch Generation" on DS print ads in Australia. I may have seen "touching is good", I'm not sure. "Wii would like to play" is fairly clever and vaguely familiar. All I can remember seeing is the word "Playstation" being said at the very end of Playstation (3) ads on TV. That's about all I remember. Can't remember what Vita used or PSP. But I am totally out of the loop since I hardly watch TV.

    Nintendo's official Switch promo video has no tagline. They just mention the word at the end. I think they can get away with not having one.

    Yeah.. The DS' was "Touching is good." and I got a free mannequin hand from Nintendo as well.

    I do expect "Make the Switch"

    Or "Switching it up"

    as the slogans.

    Reusing the same "Now you're playing with POWER, semi-PORTABLE power!" Because Nintendo don't really reinvent themselves outside the gimmicks that should be completely optional. (thank god they mostly are)

    Pray-esteicho *japanese voice*
    It was also in some PSP ads, IIRC.
