Nintendo’s upcoming console – the one that was code-named NX – is now titled Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch announcement trailer shows the portable console with detachable controllers. The new console has a lot to offer – you can actually switch play from the TV to handheld base unit which snaps out of the main dock system. You can then connect the detachable controllers to either side of the screen.
The Nintendo Switch console runs on cartridges and connects to your TV. It’s really fun to play. With great graphics, loads of game titles and incredible performance, the Nintendo Switch will provide people with many hours of engaging and interactive gaming entertainment. When you are busy playing on the TV, lifting the switch console from TV dock will automatically make the gameplay switch to the screen. Once the transition has happened, you can attach two mini-controllers a.k.a Joy-cons. You can choose to hold the controllers in hand or attach them to the screen. When exercising local multiplayer features, each of the players can hold these controllers. The Switch Controller comes with a slot for gaming cartridge, a headphone jack, and a stand to prop up the device.
