You might think that Nintendo Switch is the ultimate portable console, but you haven’t found it yet. Nintendo’s Starlight game station itself is not a new console, but a special version of Switch designed for hospitals and medical centers, equipped with 25 games that can be scrolled to different rooms.
The latest cooperative gaming station between Nintendo and Starlight was announced last year at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. The same hospital was the first to use the console, which has four designs (Mario, Peach Princess Peach, Yoshi and Donkey Kong) and is specially designed for easy disinfection and cleaning. The 25 games pre-installed on the game station include “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”
We will end with this exciting quote from Starlight himself, he said better than ever:
“Games can distract attention through entertainment and much-needed stress, and bring happiness to children trapped in the hospital. It can even provide emotional support to reduce anxiety and improve mood.”
Yes, then we are here to enter our place of joy.
