Nintendo Switch Unveiled as New Gaming System That Combines Handheld with Home Docking Unit


Nintendo has finally revealed their next gen-console – the Nintendo Switch! There is no release date, launch titles or price at this time but the system looks to be targeting a March, 2017 release so expect news before then. In the meantime check out some images, details and a preview video right here.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like.  It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America.


So there you have it. While the Nintendo Wii-U tried to integrate handheld with a home-console set up, the Nintendo Switch is taking that element to the next level and more. You can actually remove a tablet from the core of the home console dock and take your game on the go seamlessly and even add pieces of the controller to the sides of this portable tablet. It’s quite the amazing design and it really embraces the world of tablet gaming with the traditional home set-up and merges them in ways we haven’t seen before.
