NEW YORK: With three kids and constant travel for work, John Hussey jumped at the chance to play an open-world adventure game like "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" anywhere, anytime. After he heard about the Nintendo Switch, a hybrid game machine that works as both a console at home and a tablet on the go, Hussey ordered one in January even though it wouldn't arrive until Friday, when Nintendo's latest game machine debuts.Nintendo will need lots of traditional gamers like Hussey to redeem itself as a console-maker, after being eclipsed by Microsoft and Sony in the game-console wars. But Nintendo will also need lots of casual gamers who are satisfied with playing on a smartphone and would never have dreamed of buying a $300 game machine.IDC analyst Lewis Ward estimates Nintendo will ship 8 million within a year – better than the Wii U, though not as much as the Wii.Nintendo Switch developer Yoshiaki Koizumi said he wanted the game to reflect Nintendo's roots as a playing card company in the 1880s.As a game console, the Switch doesn't have the range of games available on Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One.
