Nintendo Unveils Brand New Console: The Nintendo Switch
It's handheld/home console all in one!
Say hello to Nintendo Switch! Previously known via the codename Nintendo NX, the Nintendo Switch will be both a handheld/home console at the same time. If you’ve ever wanted to play Skyrim in your Volkswagen – then your dreams have just been realised.
A video showing off the new console – which looks like a tablet computer/handheld/regular console rolled into one (with controllers attached to the sides) - is playing below. Make sure check that out. But first, here are some pictures of the Nintendo Switch, which will replace Nintendo’s Wii U, in action.
Did Nintendo have anything to say about their new console?
Of course! Here’s some more information from Nintendo’s very own mouth: “Introducing Nintendo Switch! 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.”
Nintendo Switch - which is set to make commuting infinitely more fun - will be released in March 2017. As soon as more details hit, we’ll bring them to you, so stay tuned to MTV.co.uk.
And here’s the video itself:
Notice that the Switch will have a headphone jack (are you seeing this, Apple?), a cartridge slot and DETACHABLE CONTROLLERS. Consider us officially switched on. (We're sorry.)
