Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch Details And Supporting Developers And Publishers Announced


Now that the Nintendo Switch’s first trailer has revealed the system, Nintendo has followed up with more detailed information on what we can expect from the console that can go from stationary to mobile. We know the exact terms for some of its accessories, as well as which companies will be supporting it with games.


When you have a Nintendo Switch at home, the system itself rests in a Nintendo Switch Dock. This is the device that connects to the TV, displays it on the screen, and offers a means of charging. Joy-Con controllers are the name for the controllers that can attach to a hub when at home, but separate and be attached to either side of the Nintendo Switch when it is in portable mode. The Joy-Con controllers can also be used by two people when it is in portable mode as well. Nintendo will also be offering a Switch Pro Controller, which doesn’t separate into Joy-Con controllers.
