The Nintendo Switch is a game console developed by Nintendo. It was released in almost all regions on March 3, 2017. It is possible to use the console as a home console or as a portable device. So it is a hybrid console. The Joy-Con controllers, equipped with buttons and directional analog sticks for input, motion sensing, and tactile feedback, are wireless, and can be attached to either side of the console to allow users to play handheld games. They can be connected to a grip accessory, such as a traditional home console gamepad, or used in your hand like the Wii remote and Nunchuk. They can also be used for local multiplayer modes.
The software on the Nintendo Switch supports online gaming via internet connectivity, as well as local wireless ad hoc connectivity to other consoles. You can play Nintendo Switch games and software on physical flash cartridges and digital distribution via Nintendo eShop. There is no region lockout.
