Nintendo has officially unveiled its next-gen gaming console, the new Nintendo Switch. In an introductory video, Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its latest creation. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles. As with any newer gaming system, the game prices are a little inflated, especially for new games. You should still be able to track down cheaper prices from establishments that sell used games.
At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.
Is this what Nintendo needs to get back to the top of the gaming industry?
The Switch is currently slated for a March 2017 release.
