    After years of rumors and speculation, Nintendo has finally revealed its latest console — the Nintendo Switch — and if early first impressions are anything to go by, it looks like it was worth the wait.

    In typical Nintendo style, the Japanese company decided not to hold a big unveiling event, and instead post a simple three-minute trailer to its website and YouTube account showcasing exactly what the new console will be able to do.


    From the trailer we can gather that the Switch is a portable console hybrid, designed to be taken on the road or hooked up to a TV at home. The reveal video didn’t gift us much in terms of actual specs and information, but it did show a lot of different shots of the system. We’ve broken them all down here below.

    You can play the Switch on your TV, thanks to the Nintendo Switch Dock

    It uses cartridges, not discs

    When you leave the house, the Switch can be pulled up out of its dock

    You can then use the console on-the-move using two Joy-Con controllers, which look like this…

    They can be attached to either side of the Switch…

    Or you can combine them using the Joy-Con Grip…

    The switch then acts as a screen, using handy fold-out stands at the back of the console

    Which means you can use it to play split-screen two player

    I'm def getting this. But I have a feeling that they've sacrificed a lot in terms of specs and graphics just to ensure that games can easily become portable.

    I agree with you but you know what I don't mind one of the best thing about the Wii U was playing games on the controller that double as a screen.

    Nintendo is almost always lagging behind in specs to make their consoles cheaper to buy and less overheating etc but the problem the wii U had is that it sacrificed a lot of power compared to ps4/Xb1 but was neither particularly cheaper and it's unique feature (the special controller) was a pretty useless gimmick. It costs $100, was a controller with a screen that still needed to be in range of the main console. That $100 at wholesale hardware costs could of really beefed up the Wii U's specs. At least the Joycon controller is MUCH less of a burden on the price goal.

    Exactly. I legit don't know anybody who has the Wii U. Not enough bang for your buck. But at least this new system looks cool.
