Aikun welcomes Nintendo Switch
Aikun has patented the Morphus X300 design, and is happy to see Nintendo join them in the same direction for the future of gaming. Aikun encourages Nintendo to reach out and to officially release all the back-catalog of Nintendo games from Gamecube, N64, SNES, NES officially into the Google Play, into an officially Nintendo-supported 3D-display enabled, controller optimized Nintendo games emulator for Android. For example, Nintendo could offer a $5/month or $10/month fee for unlimited gaming on Android/Switch, that could be perfect, and it could be very lucrative for Nintendo, to make all their games compatible with the 3 Billion Android devices that are shipped every year. We definitely expect that Nintendo Switch is also Android based and offers an LTE Sim card slot version, also possibly leading the way for a Nintendo Phone, Nintendo HDMI Stick TV Dongle and more. Android Smart TVs could have the Nintendo Switch Android app pre-loaded (with a 3-months free trial). Nintendo should also program and release all their Nintendo Switch games to be compatible with all modern Android devices, not to only run on Nintendo’s own hardware. Game developers only need to program their games once for Android, and that should make the games also available on all other Android devices shipped in the world. At the same time also Nintendo can release high quality well designed side game controller Bluetooth accessories to be used using with any sized smartphone and with any tablet, to add high quality game controls on each side of any Android or iOS device. Right now, Aikun encourages all gaming fans to consider buying the Aikun Morphus X300 which is immediately available on https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B017CWO2CK and on http://aikun.co/index.php?ac=article&at=list&tid=114 (with Amazon.com ($249), Amazon.de (249€), Amazon.fr (249€) and Amazon.jp (28999¥) links and stock to be available by November)
