Nintendo Switch Discussion thread or something NINTENDO NX'S TRUE NAME IS NINTENDO SWITCH, TRAILER HERE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5uik5fgIaI I'm really excited for this! Playing games on the go, BotW, Splatoon 2, a new 3D Mario game, and a lot of other stuff! Also apparently Skyrim. What about you!?!?!?!?! Stuff we know:
- The name is Nintendo Switch
- It's a home console-handheld hybrid
- Uses cartridges. They're somewhat bigger than DS/3DS cartridges, but that could just be the angle.
- The console itself is a tablet of some sort which can be placed on a dock to connect to a TV.
- A controller split in half called the Joy-Con connect to a handle, or the console itself. The both halves of the Joy-Con have a total of 12 buttons (ABXY, 4 directional buttons (no D-Pad to be found), plus and minus, home and a mysterious button whose use is unknown) The controllers can be shared by two people to play Mario Kart for example.
- Apparently powered by NVIDIA Tegra. (GCN, Wii and Wii U used PowerPC) - > https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2016/10/20/nintendo-switch/ - > Maybe the specs (don't take these seriously): http://pastebin.com/UD1Vx9rf
