Today Nintendo officially revealed the Nintendo NX, now named Nintendo Switch. A number of game publishers and developers have already announced support for Switch, including Activision, Bethesda, Capcom, EA, Epic Games, Telltale, and Ubisoft. Actually, what we got is more of a product trailer than an actual announcement, but this trailer shows us exactly what we are getting along with some disgusting music.
The Switch looks like a completely new platform compared to the Wii U and 3DS, but the trailer shows people playing Splatoon, a Wii U game.and small pop-in cartridges. It comes in two parts, a docking station that plugs into your TV and a tablet you use to play games on the go.
The Joy-Cons can be taken off when used outside in order to rest the Switch on a stand which then allows for multiplayer gaming.
The Switch may not be meant to replace the 3DS right away, but given its ability to play console-quality games away from a TV, it feels like it's only a matter of time. The entire gamepad connects into the Nintendo Switch Dock so you can play games on the big screen.
The system is slated to launch in March 2017, but Nintendo did not offer up an exact release date.
