The Nintendo Switch Console is an upcoming video game developed by Nintendo, and the company’s seventh major home console.It was officially disclose on October 20, 2016 worldwide.Announced at an event in Tokyo, Japan, Nintendo threw back the curtains and finally gave us a release date and price point. The Nintendo Switch will hit store shelves on March 3, 2017, with a starting price of $300.However, the legendary company has announced many of the Nintendo Switch games coming in the first year of the console’s life cycle, including the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey.
Basically the switch is considered by Nintendo as a “hybrid” console. It is designed as a home console with the main Console unit inserted onto a docking station to connect to a television. Alternatively, the Console can be removed from the Dock and function similar to a personal tablet through its LCD touchscreen. The Switch’s most distinguishable features are the Joy-Con wireless controllers that include standard buttons and a directional joystick for user input, motion sensing, and high-definition tactile feedback.The end result is a hybrid machine that comes with a 6.2-inch HD screen and clip-on “Joy-Con” controllers that can also be used independently as mini gamepads. In this “handheld mode” you can use the Switch remotely, when travelling or in a different room
The small Joy-Con controllers have few of features. They are both equipped with Bluetooth 3.0, while the right Joy-Con also has NFC (near-field communication). Each include an accelerometer and gyroscope, and the right also has an infrared motion camera. The Joy-Cons include an HD rumble feature that makes motion games feel more precise and realistic. Each Joy-Con lasts up to 20 hours on a full charge, with 3.5 hours as the standard charge time. Finally, recent Nintendo patents have hinted at possible VR support for the Switch, where the device can clip into a headset similar to Gear VR or Daydream View. While it’s unknown whether this will be available all during the system’s lifespan, but it’s a hint that Nintendo is at least considering the technology.
