Does the Switch OLED change amiibo training?

by Doc – Owner, Founder, This is a Stupid Question


Here’s where Amazon lists theirs, but it’s currently not taking preorders.

Here’s where you can buy one. from Nintendo

What were you expecting? It has no new features that could impact amiibo training whatsoever. An OLED screen doesn’t make much of a difference at all, and the Joy-Cons aren’t even new. Amiibo aren’t affected by lag to a significant degree (it takes 2000+ ping to change behavior), so the built-in LAN adapter is worthless.

Why is this a thing? Who looked at the Nintendo Switch’s 80% docked userbase and said “Damn, we really should make this work better for handheld players and do nothing for the docked userbase.” This Switch is an excuse to wring an extra $50 out of the people whose Switches are already malfunctioning in some way.

Alright, my rant is over, which is the real reason I even wrote this post in the first place. Back to your regularly scheduled Amiibo Doctoring.
