Nintendo has recently given its mysteriously new console a name, the Nintendo Switch.it previously went by the simple project name of NX, which was announced as a mobile gaming console more than a year and a half ago. But now, Nintendo has recently renamed its new mobile gaming console as the Nintendo Switch and with good reason.
The new Nintendo Switch is an interesting hybrid gaming console with mobile features added to it. It comes with the power of a typical gaming console that is also something that players can bring along just about anywhere. The new console comes with a tablet component that Nintendo calls the Switch Console. It comes with a 7-inch screen with still unspecified resolution. This tablet can be plugged into a Switch Dock, which is in turn plugged in to the TV. By virtue of this design, players can choose to play their favorite Nintendo game from the TV or unplug the tablet and then play from it while going out.
The controllers of the Nintendo Switch console are just as versatile. Players can use it as a single game controller when attached to a central unit called the Joy Con Grip. But the left and right components of the controller can also he detached and then slid into the two sides of the tablet. This transforms the tablet into a Wii-U like device. But that is not all. The controller buttons on each side of the tablet can also act independently as separate gamepads so that two people can play with each other.
The Nintendo Switch allows gamers to have the flexibility to play their favorite games wherever they are and whenever they want. No longer are gamers limited to playing console games at home. They can now play anywhere with this added mobility feature. For now, Nintendo has shown its concept for its upcoming console. Actual specs have not yet been provided. But Nintendo reports that it is making this new console available worldwide by March of next year.
