Nintendo has been dabbling in voice chat dating back to the DS days and have been using microphones since the very first home console they ever made, the Famicon, came into existence. Fast forward to 2018 and Switch is the first platform Nintendo has released that supports voice chat.. by making you use a completely separate electronic device intended for non-nintendo uses.
Can this become viable? Will Nintendo make it work better in September? We must look to the past to have hope for the future.
