Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s new hybrid gaming console
Today, Nintendo finally announced its new gaming console, Nintendo Switch. It is the console we know and expected with the name, Nintendo NX.
The regular Switch is just a tablet with “a high-definition display”. On the right and left side of the switch, there are two detachable controllers named as Joy-con. When you pull out those controllers, you can either use them as wireless controllers or if you want to get a traditional experience, you can put those to Joy-Con Grip. But, if you don’t like to have small remotes, Nintendo Switch will support Pro Controller, traditional DualShock-like controller, in any ways.
In other words, Nintendo Switch is designed to be a portable console. But when you are at home, you can connect the console to its Dock to play games on your television.
Being a portable console means two things. First, you are relying on Game Cards instead of CDs. Second, you will not get the same graphics that PS4 or Xbox One can provide you.
It looks like Nintendo Switch is more powerful than the last generation Nintendo Consoles, but in anyways, it is powered by a mobile processor. In this case, it is a modified version of Nvidia Tegra.
The console will be released on March, next year.
