Nintendo have got a new console heading our way in the shape of the Nintendo NX, or the Switch as it is now called. Tt is due out in March, 2017.

Introducing Nintendo Switch! In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

It looks like the Switch can be docked and played like a normal console at home, played like a portable while on the move, and you can also detach the controllers from the screen and play that way.

I do like the look of it and does seem to be really pushing for the multiplayer wherever and whenever you want to. I love how the grip controllers that attach to the screen can also be split so two people can play a game. Also looks like they’re playing Skyrim, which always works for me.

Nvidia has confirmed that the Switch is powered by a custom Tegra processor that is “based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards.” No tech specs have yet been provided, but Nvidia promised a “revamped physics engine, new libraries, advanced game tools and libraries [and] new gaming APIs to fully harness this performance,” as well as “hardware-accelerated video playback and custom software for audio effects and rendering.”
