Nintendo Switch: At Home and Portable all in One New Device

No more rumors. No more speculation. No more frustration.

On Thursday morning, we finally got our first look at the Nintendo Switch (previously known as the NX), and as reports suggested, it exists somewhere in the realm between a portable device and home console. You can watch the trailer here:

“Introducing Nintendo Switch!,” says the video trailer description. “In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.”

The console itself is a 6-inch tablet with two detachable controllers, which can either be used in tandem by a single player or by two players for multiplayer games. When a Switch owner wants to play on the television, they simply have to slot the tablet into the Switch Dock, at which point it becomes a home console.

As Nintendo previously confirmed, the Nintendo Switch ship date and launches in March 2017.
