The successor to the Wii U has arrived and it’s called the Switch. It’s portable, it’s cute and it’s weird as all get out. Watch the three-minute Nintendo Switch trailer right here.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the next Nintendo console would look like a cross between a dinky cassette player and a Transformer toy, but here we are. The full Nintendo Switch trailer is below:
Here’s the accompanying announcement:
“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. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.
“Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.”
We’ll be reporting on the Nintendo NX announcement tomorrow, but in the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments section below.
