After much rumor, leaks and anticipation, Nintendo has finally announced that their latest console is in development and will be released in March 2017. Introducing the Nintendo Switch!
The Switch is a hybrid between a home console and a mobile console. This allows you to play it wherever you want and with whomever you want.
It comes with a variety of enhancements and differences that makes the Switch completely unique.
This hybridization between console styles has given the Switch the ability to play video games in completely new ways. Firstly, the Switch looks much like a tablet, and certainly has that element to it; however, much like the Wii, it comes with two detachable controllers. This allows you to play motion-style games, as well as to have them functioning as two mini controllers for single-screen multiplayer. Check out the video below.
Another interesting feature is the docking station. By connecting the Switch to its dock, you can seamlessly play it through your TV and by removing it, it immediately goes back to portable mode. Furthermore, it also comes with a Switch gaming controller that allows you to play independently from the console by sliding the two ‘Joy Con’ controllers onto it.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many specs that have been released as of yet. Neither a definite price. Although, rumor has it that they will retail for somewhere at $300+. It will have a high definition screen though and it is powered by a custom Nvidia Tegra processor. [via]
