Nintendo Switch details:

The Nintendo Switch is both an innovative and remarkable gaming console that can be played in the comfort of your home or transformed into a portable hand-held device to take the experience with you.

Three play styles

  1. TV-style – Take a seat in front of the TV and play games with a group. Place your Nintendo Switch in the cradle and play in HD on your TV.
  2. Table style – One screen for two players. Flip out the Nintendo Switch’s stand and share the fun on one screen.
  3. Handheld style – Play anytime, anywhere on a big screen. Take the gameplay from home with you wherever you go.


There are two controllers on the Nintendo Switch that you can use together or separately: the Joy-Con controllers. If you attach the two Joy-Con controllers to the Joy-Con holder, then you can use them as a traditional controller. Each Joy-Con is also a stand-alone controller.

  • Playing together with the Joy-Con – If you give one of the Joy-Con controllers to a friend, you can play multiplayer games together anywhere.
  • A touch that is more than a vibration – Imagine that the Joy-Con is a glass of ice cubes. Thanks to the HD vibration function, you can feel how the ice cubes touch each other when you tilt and turn the Joy-Con around. One ice cube, two… The HD vibration function is so realistic that you can even feel how many ice cubes are in the glass. It’s almost like holding a real glass.
  • Recognize shape, movement, and distance – The infrared motion camera in the right Joy-Con can recognize the shape, movement, and distance of objects. For example, the camera can see the difference between the hand gestures of stone, paper, and scissors. This opens up a world for you, such as with Nintendo Labo (sold separately).

Multiplayer with up to eight systems

  • Local co-op – Play the TV at home with your friends.*You may need additional controllers (sold separately) to do so.
  • Local Wireless – Players can pair up to eight Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite systems together to play together or against each other in multiplayer games with the eight of them.
  • Online multiplayer – A Nintendo Switch Online membership allows you to play with friends and other players from all over the world, you have access to a growing collection of classic NES games with additional online features, and you can take advantage of exclusive offers such as TETRIS 99 and Nintendo Switch gaming vouchers, and more!

Nintendo Switch-Pros and cons

  • Thanks to the improved battery life, you can use this Switch on the go for an hour and a half longer on a battery charge than the Switch without an upgrade.
  • Use the Nintendo Switch as a console for your living room and as a handheld console for on-the-go with improved battery life.
  • With 1 set of Joy-Con controllers, you can play alone or with 2 players.
  • The 6.2-inch screen seems too small for more than 2 players on the go.

Nintendo Switch makes it easy for players to stay connected.

Up to 8 consoles can be connected for local wireless play. The player can place the console upright anywhere by using the built-in stand, then easily share Joy-Con for multiplayer fun away from the TV. The console will support online Wi-Fi multiplayer gaming. Nintendo also unveiled a new online subscription service that will begin with a free trial at launch. The service includes a smart-device application available in winter 2017 that will let users invite friends to play online, set play appointments, and chat with one another as they play compatible games. The fully featured paid service will be available in spring.

Nintendo Switch Parental Controls

As a parent, it’s not always easy to keep an eye on your children’s time spent with entertainment devices. The Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app is a free smart device app to help you easily monitor what and how your children are playing.

  • Monitor gameplay time – you can set a time limit for how long your child is allowed to play.
  • Monitor what your child is playing – you can see which video games your child has been playing, and for how long.
  • Restrict your child’s gaming access based on their age.

If you do not have a smart device you can also set certain restrictions on Nintendo Switch directly.

The package will include the main console, Joy-Con (L) and Joy-Con (R) controllers, a Joy-Con grip (to which two Joy-Con are attached and used as one controller), a set of Joy-Con wrist straps, a Nintendo Switch dock (which holds the main console and connects it to a TV), a HDMI cable, and an AC adapter.
