Shortly before Christmas, we at The Iris offices received a very exciting email. Nintendo Australia was inviting us (among a slew of other local games media) to Melbourne to spend some hands-on time with their newest console, the Nintendo Switch. 24 hours after Nintendo gave the world a substantial look at what the new machine can do, we got to see it and try it for ourselves.
