As mentioned in my previous article, this short video gave us so much information! I will do my best to highlight all the main points that Nintendo showed us.
This is a Hybrid Console
We now know for sure that the Nintendo Switch is a mobile handheld with a docking station that allows you to play games on the go or on your television. You will be able to remove the mobile screen from the dock while in game and immediately transfer your game to your screen from your TV.
Controllers are Detachable
They immediately showed us that the controllers on the mobile handheld are detachable. Allowing you to use both the left and right portions of the controllers as one controller for single play games or as individual controllers for multiplayer.
New Controllers Coming as well
It looks like there will be a device that you can plug your detachable controllers into when you are at home and several “pro” style controllers that are new coming as well.
Cartridges are back
We know for sure that this console will house the games on physical cartridges that look similar to the Nintendo 3DS cartridges. No word yet on whether this will be backwards compatible with the Nintendo 3DS software yet.
Here are the games that were shown during that trailer. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Skyrim, a new 3D Mario, Mario Kart, and Splatoon.
