The Nintendo Switch is a high-end hybrid-system that combines home-console and handheld.

It will connect to a television when resting in the Nintendo Switch Dock, and when lifted out of the dock, will "instantly transition to portable mode," according to Nintendo. The unit offers a "high-definition display," and features two detachable Joy-Con controllers, one on either side. Each Joy-Con controller can be slotted into an accessory called the Joy-Con Grip to "[mirror] a more traditional controller." The console will also support a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to be used instead of the detachable Joy-Con units. (Polygon)

Nintendo Switch is powered by the performance of the custom Tegra processor. The high-efficiency scalable processor includes an NVIDIA GPU based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards.

It will launch in March 2017.

I didn't like what I saw from the trailer, but more third party support is nice. It comes down to cost for me. If it's more expensive than PS4 Pro or Xbox Scorpion then I'll pass.

@SKTTR Sorry for my lack of presence here, but I can hardly do squat on my Wii U browser since our web-host messed things up here...Crying or Very sad

please allow playback of WiiU and 3DS eShop downloads as well.... Its not stopping me from buying it, but I really just want all Nintendo titles from the past 35 years available on one platform and hopefully not have to rebuy certain WiiU games AGAIN just to have the "best" version, I'll gladly pay DLC, but not $60 again

I'm looking forward to the switch, but am concerned that my current games library wont be able to SWITCH over like it did from DSi to 3DS or WiiWare to WiiU Sad

@Minato But didn't Nintendo state that the Switch is intended to be a third platform alongside the 3DS and Wii U? Personally, I hadn't expected it to have the exact same titles as the other two consoles, and I'm perfectly fine with it being its own thing rather than a replacement.

@Zack the problem with that is the WiiU has nothing announced for the coming year... I really want to play my current WiiU library on the go without having to rebuy. Mario Maker and Woolly world shouldnt have come to 3DS, instead shouldve SWITCHED to the Switch via digital transfer

I'm very excited about the switch. Nintendo nailed it with the trailer. It's very clear what the Switch is and what it will do. I was very confused after the WiiU trailer, but the Switch is very clear and it looks like a great device. Can't wait for more information though because I've got so many questions. But I'm looking forward to it.
