As you’re no doubt aware, the Nintendo Switch eShop gets a new boatload of titles to choose from with every passing week. Naturally, each week’s new arrivals vary in genre, budget, and quality (keep an eye on our eShop Selects series for the best of the latter), but this week sees something a little different appearing on the store. That’s right, Nintendo Switch is getting a calculator.
It’s (rather effectively) called Calculator and is literally a calculator – you know, for calculating. How many times will we say calculator in this article? Calculator.
It launches tomorrow, 12th May, and costs a rather steep £8.09. We say steep because you can buy a real scientific calculator for considerably less than that, or – as we imagine most of us do these days – just use your computer or phone for free. Still, it’s a thing that’s happening, and here’s the official eShop description to prove it:
“A scientific calculator with a clear easy-to-read multi-line display, which should help with those not-so-easy-to-do maths problems.
“Calculator has an appealing modern and practical design, sure to be popular with all students and engineers.”
It’s “sure to be popular with all students and engineers,” so will you be buying this when it launches on the eShop tomorrow? Sum up your thoughts in the comments below.
