The Editor: Yesterday Was A Good Day
Yesterday was a very good day.
The Switch Island has now grown from two nonsensical scousers, sat in a tiny spare bedroom trying to talk over the sounds of a crappy boiler in mid-January, to a true bakers dozen of likeminded, genuine, and interesting Nintendo fans.
The reasons for wanting to grow in size are pretty straightforward – we’ve always wanted to share the content we produce and the methodology behind everything we do, with as many content creators and community members as possible. This way, we can have a laugh building something we all love whilst we try to take over the internet [no, not like Kim Kardashian, Steve!].
So, what does each islander actually do?

Finally, i wanted to share our mission statement with you all. Hopefully it will give you some idea of how we’ve always planned to operate, but more importantly, so that you [our friends and followers] can help champion The Switch Island in the knowledge that we wont divert too heavily away from retaining our authenticity.
No Advertising – We use a Patreon model to fund whatever we can
Fun & Authentic Content – If we enjoy it, it’s good enough.
Socially The Same – Our online voice will be genuine.
As Much Or As Little – Our content creators have time and freedom of expression on the platform
So, thats all from me on a beautiful British Sunday morning. If you’re reading this, truly, welcome to the island. May your stay not be plagued by too many masturbation jokes.
