The gaming world has been on edge waiting to hear anything about Nintendo’s new system originally the called the NX. Well the gods of Nintendo have heard our pleas and revealed their new systems, appropriately named Nintendo Switch; because of its ability to be a home consoles and a handheld whenever the situation sees fit.
Luckily for you, we’ve been on top of what’s been going on. So here’s what you need to know about the new system, the Nintendo Switch:
HOME CONSOLE AND PORTABLE AT THE SAME TIME:
As predicted before by fans, Nintendo Switch is a combination of a home console and portable one. As Nintendo says,
At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you.
Along with the ability to bring your console on the go, you’ll be able to transform your future Switch to an handheld console by attaching the included controllers (called the Joy-Con) to the side of the Switch itself. The Joy-Con controllers are not only used to help the portability of the new console, according to Nintendo,
One players can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Can can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options.
It’s clear to see that Nintendo is continuing their trend of keeping couch co-op/multiplayer alive in the gaming world.
3RD PARTY SUPPORT:
A creative/innovative approach toward creating a newer system will only go far without videogames to play. The good thing is Nintendo seems to be opening up the flood gates for publishers, developers and middleware partners to provide support for Nintendo Switch; here are some of them:
Even with this release of Nintendo Switch Partners, Nintendo has still been hush hush about what games (besides the already confirmed ones) will be available, even with the ones played during the reveal. Hopefully within the next few months before release we’ll find out about more of the titles we’ll get to play.
Get ready… release will be March 2017. Surprising that their not looking at Winter 2017, but it is good for us.
According to Nintendo,
Today’s video incorporated short glimpses of representative gameplay to demonstrate the liberating nature of the Nintendo Switch home gaming system. Full game demonstrations, the list of the launch window titles, as well as launch date, price, product configuration and related specifics, will be shown and announced prior to the March launch.
