Nintendo Switch is a new gaming console, which is both portable and a desk console for your HD TV.
The Nintendo Switch box will include the main console unit, 2 Joy Con controllers, charging grip, a wrist strap, dock, HDMI cable, and an AC adapter unit. The controllers come in three colors- grey, red and blue.
It will be available in two variants – one with red and blue JoyCon controllers and another with grey controllers. It is priced at $299.99 for both the variants.
JoyCon is a motion-sensing controller with accelerometer and gyro sensors. It also has NFC, which can be used with Amiibo. It unlocks the game contents. If you move the controller, the actions in the game can be executed. If you move the controller sideways, then it moves the game character. For attack, imitating that gesture will execute it brilliantly.
Nintendo showed pretty cool features and new games at the launch. The first one is called the 1 2 switch. A co-op game where two players can point the controller at each other to play! It selects the winner based on the reaction time. So, if you’re quick then you will win this game.
Another exciting game that caught the limelight was Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game will release on 3 March,2017. It is an adventure game franchisee with a huge following in the countries where Nintendo is active. An intense trailer for this upcoming game was the major attraction at the event.
Other major Nintendo games that will be released in the holiday season are Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey. It will be a long wait, but at the end of 2017, the games will be launched, which will certainly uplift the holidays of Nintendo Switch users.
The popular third party games are also going to be introduced very soon – NBA 2018, Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim, Super Bomberman, and EA sports FIFA 2017.
The lineup and the console itself looks pleasing and we shall have to wait a little over a month to grab our own copy of Nintendo Switch.
