Nintendo Switch World Premiere!

Nintendo Switch World Premiere Demonstrates 
New Entertainment Experiences from a Home Gaming System

Detachable Controllers Reinvent Gaming

In an introductory video released (, Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”

Developers can design their games supporting a variety of play styles, which gives gamers the freedom to choose an experience that best suits them. Some of the publishers, developers and middleware partners announcing support for Nintendo Switch are as follows:

Fangirl Thoughts: 
The new console looks great and it looks like what the Wii U was supposed to be - Portable. It truly makes it easy for you to take your full game on the road and then reconnect it once you get home. I do wonder about battery life and how much the game will be changed because of the smaller system. However I think it is a great idea. 
I do also wonder will I have to buy the same game for my Wii U and Switch system seperately or will there be special editions in which they are packaged together for a better price then buying them seperately. I believe that would be a great approach. I believe I will buy this but unless there is something truly special about it I plan to buy Zelda for the Wii U. 
What did you think about this teaser trailer (because lets be honest that is what it is) and do you plan on picking one up?
