Games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have helped the Nintendo Switch become a big success. The great games aren’t the only reason why people love this console, though. The other main contributor to the Switch’s popularity is its portability.
The freedom to play full console games whenever and wherever you want is something all gamers have dreamed of. Thanks to Switch being uniquely designed to be played at home or on the go, this dream has finally become a reality. However, this newfound freedom creates a brand-new problem—wear and tear from traveling.
