Amid several speculations, Nintendo has successfully come up with the Nintendo Switch, codenamed the Nintendo NX.
A portable handheld console with detachable controllers, this Nvidia Tegra powered technology will not disappoint its fans.
Gaming enthusiasts feel that it is an innovative take on video game hardware which arrives with multiple play modes and offers the option to output a video and audio signal to the television system.
What Is Bundled Within The System?
Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console that can be played both at home and while on the move. It comes with two Joy-Con controllers that can be attached to the tablet and a dock that can be used when playing on a television.
This video game comes with three play modes. The Handheld Mode that attaches Joy-Con to the base unit; the TV Mode, which connects the system to a television through a dock; and the Tabletop Mode, which utilizes the built-in stand so that the screen can be displayed upright at any position.
In certain cases, the Joy-Con can be detached from the controllers to activate the game to the multiplayer option.
