nintendo switch

The Nintendo Switch (Japanese: ニンテンドースイッチ, Hepburn: Nintendō Suitchi) is an upcoming video game console developed by Nintendo, and the company's seventh major home console. Originally known in development as the NX, it was officially unveiled on October 20, 2016 and is scheduled for release worldwide on March 3, 2017.
The Switch is considered by Nintendo as a "hybrid" console. It is designed primarily as a home console with the main Console unit inserted onto a docking station to connect to a television. Alternatively, the Console can be removed from the Dock and function similar to a personal tablet computer through its LCD touchscreen, or placed in a standalone tabletop mode to be playable by several people. The Switch's most distinguishable features are the Joy-Con wireless controllers that include standard buttons and a directional joystick for user input, motion sensing, and high-definition tactile feedback. The Joy-Con can attach to both sides of the Console to support handheld-style play, connected to a Grip accessory to provide a traditional home console gamepad form, or used individually in the hand like Nintendo's Wii Remote. The Switch supports both physical flash ROM cartridges and digital content for games and software, and will not use region locking.
From 2014, Nintendo had several quarters of financial losses mainly due to poor sales of its previous console, the Wii U, as well as market competition from the mobile gaming sector. Then-Nintendo president Satoru Iwata set into motion steps that would lead the company to embrace mobile gaming and develop new hardware to create a novel experience from the Wii U. The Switch's design was aimed to appeal to a wider demographic of video game players through the multiple modes of use, while retaining Nintendo's hardware uniqueness and innovation. Nintendo has sought support of many third-party developers and publishers to help build out the Switch's game library alongside Nintendo's own first-party titles, with over 100 titles under development by 70 developers as of January 2017.
