The Nintendo Switch Console lets you play any time, any place.
The new Switch console now features a significantly longer battery life up to 9 hours for gaming on the go!
3 Ways To Play
The clever Switch works as a home gaming system AND a portable console to suit all your gaming needs. There are 3 different ways to play. The first is through your TV just like an ordinary console, using the controllers to play alone or with friends on a range of top class games that bear Nintendo's tried and trusted seal of quality. The second mode lets you play table top. Just prop the console anywhere and use its built in screen and detachable Joy-Con controllers to have fun on any flat surface either at home or on the move. The third mode is a traditional handheld experience. Just hold it like you would a phone or a Game Boy, view the games on the screen and work the buttons in handheld mode. The Nintendo Switch has motion controls just like the ones pioneered with the Wii.
Joy-Con Motion Controls
Attach the Joy-Con straps and slip the straps onto your wrists to enjoy the intuitive motion controls. The IR Motion Camera in each Joy-Con can detect the shape, movement and distance of objects captured by the camera.
6.2 inch Display
Play wherever you like, however you want, using the 6.2 inch screen HOME Menu to start games and select game settings. You can also link consoles together to enjoy local multiplayer. Another option is to connect via the internet to play with far-off friends and users all over the world. To play online, you will need to subscribe to the Nintendo Switch online subscription service.
