The latest Nintendo Switch experiments could see a lot of console owners cringe
It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for Nintendo fans since the launch of the company’s latest console.
Having received a mixed reception in January, the Nintendo Switch avoided any early Wii U comparisons by flying off shelves.
And it appears that isn’t the only place Nintendo Switchs have been moving fast.
The latest Nintendo games experiments have confirmed that the hybrid console can remain functional after being dropped from a great height.
A new video posted on YouTube channel UnlockRiver reveals a durability review, including a 1,000-foot drop to the ground.
The new clip will prove terrifying for any handheld, or mobile phone owner who has perfected the frantic juggling technique of trying to stop your favourite piece of tech smash into the ground.
But as revealed in the video, the Nintendo Switch remains working having fallen to earth, after being dragged up into the sky via a drone.
There’s the obvious question of why this was attempted and if it’s a possible hoax, however, from the footage posted online it looks like the real deal.
Nintendo Switchs caught in mid-flight appears to be an expanding trend, with another fun clip posted to the internet recently of something a little similar.

Nintendo Classic Mini SNES: 10 Games that MUST make the cut
Some Nintendo 3DS owners have been caught by surprise following a wave of new bans that are affecting those users who have modded their handhelds.
Users are reporting an Error Code 002-0102 — which states “access to online services has been restricted by Nintendo.”
Affected features include access to YouTube, Hulu and Netflix, as well as the 3DS friends list.
From the chatter on Reddit, it appears that many affected by the new ban wave are those who use modded 3DS consoles.
Nintendo has confirmed why they’ve started rolling out the new measure, confirming to Mashable: “As a result of a number of users making unauthorized system modifications, playing unauthorized versions of one or more games and/or connecting to the game servers in violation of our terms of service, Nintendo has banned those users’ systems from accessing its online network, effective immediately.”
However, while this is a big problem for those who use the Nintendo 3DS on a day-to-day basis, it doesn’t apparently block usage of either the 3DS web browser or Nintendo eShop.
One explanation on how Nintendo might be selecting owners has been supplied by some of those affected, although it should be noted that none of this new information is from an official source.
One poster explains: “I can't give an exact answer, but the BOSS applet sends certain information to Nintendo's servers whenever you do certain things like running an app (for the Friend List, for example), and everything else you do involving their servers."
