After what feels like years, we finally have met the next gen Nintendo console: The Nintendo Switch.
Formerly known as the NX, the Switch looks very similar to what the Wii U was intended to be: a powerful portable gaming system.
The Nintendo Switch looks to allow the user to dock the main system, which pretty much looks like an iPad. While the tablet console is docked, the user can combine the controllers to form a normal controller and play on a larger screen.
But all of a sudden you feel the urge to go outside or go out. Well, great news! Slide your controllers apart, attach them to the console and take off!
While the trailer showed some capabilities that the Wii U was supposed to do, there are a few questions we don’t have answers for:
- What is the battery life when taking via tablet/remote?
- Will the frame rate drop when not docked?
- Is the docking station serving just as a docking station, or does the device need to check in with home base every so often?
- How durable will the casing/plastic be on the device for all that sliding off and on?
- Can I finally just grab my system and head over to a friends house and connect my system to his for ultimate play?
While this trailer was a sign of exciting possibilities, we’re still in the very early stages of finding out the capabilities of the system, along with the specs.
We know that the Switch will have Amiibo capability, so that’s good news! Well, not for our wallets, but still.
All and all, we’re looking forward to this new system from Nintendo and the potential it has!
Oh…AND IS THAT SKYRIM?! YUP!
