What we think
The Nintendo Switch is one-part handheld and one-part home console, and hopes to be the only device you'll ever need for gaming, wherever you are. The hybrid console is an undeniable success, offering up an exceptional level of handheld graphical quality, while seamlessly transitioning into a home console – though this very adaptability has required compromises on power and functionality compared to the dedicated consoles and handhelds that came before it.

Nintendo Switch is designed to go wherever you do, transforming from home console to portable system in a snap. So you get more time to play the games you love, however you like.
It’s a new era where you don’t have to adjust your lifestyle to play games – instead, your console adjusts to fit around your lifestyle.
Enjoy games anytime, anywhere, with anyone, with flexible and free play modes.
Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of the Nintendo Switch Console.
One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con controllers can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. Click it back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller.
Three Play Modes
The Nintendo Switch Console lets you play in 3 different options. Hook up the console to the TV and everyone can enjoy playing, from kids to adults. If you don’t have access to a TV, prop up the stand attached to the console and hand a Joy-Con to a friend to play co-operative or competitive games right on the console screen.
You can also enjoy the same gameplay experience as on a TV screen, right at your fingertips. Play engaging games you’ve never thought you can play on the go anytime, anywhere.
Local & Online Multiplayer
Link up to eight consoles for multiplayer. If you sign up to the online subscription service for Nintendo Switch, you can play with friends far away and players around the world.
