One of the most striking things about the newly announced Nintendo Switch is that it combines elements of both a home and portable console. This has caused some debate about the future of Nintendo’s 3DS and the entire concept of the company separating its hardware divisions. However, it does not seem like the Japanese firm is looking to replace the 3DS with the upcoming Switch.
Months of rumors and speculation about the Nintendo NX being some sort of hybrid console have finally been confirmed as the Japanese publisher revealed that their latest piece of hardware, the Nintendo Switch, is a fully portable console. A preview trailer shows how the Switch can be used as both a home console that works with a TV or as a portable handheld device that features detachable controllers so that it can be even more mobile. It is due to launch in March, 2017.
