Nintendo Switch: Rumours of a Handheld Hybrid Finally Come True

By October 22, 2016 at 11:04 am

Nintendo is out with a new games console, Nintendo switch. The Japanese games giant recently revealed the new product in a swanky three-minute video showcasing the system's new tablet controller and attachments. Once again, pundits and users alike are discussing its specs and features.

Rumours had pervaded the internet over the past few months, claiming the Switch is a console/handheld hybrid. The rumors turn out to be all true. The debut trailer reveals an intense focus on portability, local multiplayer and impressive, engrossing gameplay. The trailer also showed the wide variety of locations you will be able to play in, suggesting that the Joy-Cons can be used without mains power or the internet.

According to Trustedreviews.com, GAME CEO, Martyn Gibbs had given his opinion on the console, saying:

 'As today's teaser video demonstrates, the SWITCH is another example of Nintendo distinguishing its gaming experiences to appeal to a wide range of gamers. Nintendo has consistently developed home consoles and handheld gaming to see its beloved and engaging games and characters deliver ultimate fun and enjoyment. SWITCH is clearly taking some of the best features of handheld and home consoles and merging them into a fantastic new way to play. We will be bringing more details to our customers as soon as possible."

Nintendo Switch splices together a traditional home console with a device that can be taken and played on the go. 'Eccentric, interesting, boasting widespread industry support and with a focus on portability that plays to Nintendo's considerable strengths (Game Boy, DS, 3DS ...), the Switch is the veteran company's attempt to reinvent gaming. Again', says theguardian.com.

The new Console reflects Nintendo's recent focus on portability. Many users and analysts believe the Nintendo switch is the key to reinventing the much loved Nintendo Wii and may well succeed where the Wii has failed.
