This morning we got our first look at Nintendo’s new console dropping in March. The NX codename is officially ditched, say hello to the Nintendo Switch.
Not only is it exciting to see the console unveiled as well as have a name, but it also appears most of the rumors surrounding the hardware are entirely accurate. Three months ago Eurogamer broke a story stating that the NX would be a home console and handheld hybrid that docked for tv play. They also detailed the way in which the controller would split in half to attach to the portable display. It looks like their sources were right on the money with this one.
In addition to the big hardware reveal we got a look at a few games running on the console. The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild, Skyrim, Splatoon, and even a brief glimpse of an unnamed Mario game.
Our first glimpse of the Switch looks promising, Nintendo’s idea to bridge the gap between the home console and handheld may just be perfect if they can get behind the Switch with great hardware. Hopefully, in the coming months, we’ll learn a whole lot more. The Nintendo Switch drops in March of 2017.
