What is Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo Switch is the latest home video game console from Nintendo, which launches worldwide on March 3rd, 2017. The Switch is a tablet device that plays console-quality games, either on the tablet itself, or on the TV by placing it in the docking station. The Switch features unique controllers, the Joy-Cons, that function like advanced Wii remotes separately, but can connect to each other to form a more traditional controller. Each Nintendo Switch console comes with two Joy-Con controllers, giving adopters the chance to play both single-player games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and multiplayer games like 1-2 Switch.

In addition to local play, the Nintendo Switch will sport upgraded online functionality when compared to Nintendo’s previous online efforts. Nintendo Switch’s online services will be available for a fee, allowing players to play multiplayer games with other Switch owners all over the world, and giving them one free classic game per month. The free classic games will be NES and SNES titles with added online multiplayer support, but if fans want to keep playing the games after the free month is up, they will need to buy them. Other classic Nintendo games will be available through the Switch’s online services as well, thanks to the return of the Virtual Console.
