The Nintendo Switch, formerly known as Nintendo NX, has been revealed today, the 20th October 2016.

The confirmed games shown in the first-ever trailer above are:

- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition from Bethesda Softworks

- Mario Kart 9 (with King Boo as a playable character, and 2 item slots)

- NBA Basketball

- New 3D Super Mario

- Splatoon 2

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.

@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

Except Breath of the Wild, and there could be other currently-unannounced titles.

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.
