The Nintendo Switch, known in development as the Nintendo NX, is a gaming device from Nintendo, released March 3, 2017. While technically a portable device, it does not currently serve to replace the Nintendo 3DS but succeeds the Wii U.
An enhanced eighth-generation device, the Switch is a multimode tablet with an HDTV dock and two Joy-Con controller units that can adapt to any gaming environment. When snapped into the included frame, the Joy-Cons form a gamepad; and when attached to the Switch, they form a handheld. They can also be used independently when the tablet is in a free-standing position.
When docked, the Switch operates as a typical set-top unit, and can output to a television screen via HDMI in full 1080p resolution.
Games for the Switch are distributed on Nintendo Switch cards, a departure from the previous three generations' use of optical storage, as well as via digital distribution with a Nintendo eShop, However, Nintendo will not add a Virtual Console service as it has done with its prior systems, instead offering subscription-based retro gaming using the Switch Online service. Developers, meanwhile, are finding creative ways to bring their older works to the system.
The Switch also possesses 32GB of onboard flash storage for both games and user data, with a microSD slot for expansion up to 2TB.
