HOME CONSOLE GAMING ON THE GO
Introducing Nintendo Switch, providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the system can also be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.
TRANSFORMS TO A PORTABLE SYSTEM IN A SNAP
Nintendo Switch is designed to go wherever you go, transforming from home console to portable system in a snap. So you get more time to play the games you love, however you like.
It’s a new era where you don’t have to adjust your lifestyle to play games – instead, your console adjusts to fit around your lifestyle. Enjoy games anytime, anywhere, with anyone, with flexible and free play modes.
THREE PLAY MODES
Gather around a big screen and enjoy gaming with a crowd.
Hook up the console to the TV and everyone can enjoy playing, from kids to adults. It’s a great way to get into the game with family and friends at home.
Share the screen, share the fun.
If you don’t have access to a TV, prop up the stand attached to the console and hand a Joy-Con to a friend to play co-operative or competitive games right on the console screen.
Carry around a large, beautiful display anywhere you go.
Enjoy the same gameplay experience as on a TV screen, right at your fingertips. Play engaging games you’ve never thought you can play on the go anytime, anywhere.
Link up to eight consoles for multiplayer
Players can sync together up to eight Nintendo Switch consoles to play competitive and co-operative multiplayer games.
If you sign up to the online subscription service for Nintendo Switch, you can play with friends far away and players around the world. Subscribers can also sync up a dedicated smart device app to set play appointments, meet up in online lobbies to play and voice chat while playing.
*This paid online subscription service will be available free of charge until its official launch in spring 2017.
SHARE THE FUN WITH JOY-CON
Nintendo Switch has a controller on each side of the console that function together: the Joy-Con.
If you attach the two Joy-Con to the Joy-Con grip, it will work like a traditional controller, and without the grip they work as two individual, fully-functioning controllers.
PLAY MULTIPLAYER ANYWHERE
By handing one of the Joy-Con to a friend, you can play competitive or co-operative multiplayer anywhere.
PLAY USING A SINGLE JOY-CON OR BOTH AT ONCE
As well as holding a single Joy-Con vertically or horizontally to play games, you can also play using both Joy-Con at once, holding one in each hand.
Attach the Joy-Con straps included in the package and slip the straps onto your wrists to enjoy the Joy-Con’s motion controls. If you hold the Joy-Con sideways, you can also access the SL/SR Buttons with ease.
A SENSE OF TOUCH BEYOND VIBRATIONS WITH HD RUMBLE
Imagine the Joy-Con is a glass containing ice cubes. With HD rumble, when you move and tilt the Joy-Con you can feel the ice cubes clanking around.
There’s one, there’s another…HD rumble feels so realistic that you can even tell how many cubes there are, almost as if you’re actually holding a glass in your hand.
The HD rumble function included in the Joy-Con creates an immersive gameplay experience that isn’t possible with images and sounds alone.
SENSE SHAPE, MOVEMENT AND DISTANCE
The IR Motion Camera in Joy-Con (R) can detect the shape, movement and distance of objects captured by the camera.
For example, it can recognise the shape of players’ hands, such as when you make a rock, paper or scissors. With this feature, there are more gameplay possibilities than ever!
Overall, the Switch has a number of elements to recommend it, but it has a few flaws that detract from making it great console.
On the positives, the size makes it perfect for portable play, and the battery life on a full charge is impressive, even on fairly demanding games like Skyrim and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The resolution of the in-built display is great, with crisp graphics and smooth movement and transitions, and the speed with which it loads is pretty comparable with competing systems such as xbox and PlayStation4. The limited space of 32Gb is a little disappointing, but it is easily expandable with micro-SD cards which can be easily swapped in and out, which gives it more flexibility that its competitors, which is another plus that does go a ways to overcoming the down-side of the smaller in-built memory. Charge-time seems to be impressively fast, and the controllers last far longer on a charge than the console itself, so forgetting to attach the joy-cons to the unit before charging it is usually not a problem (unless you forget repeatedly).
On the down-sides, the joy-cons themselves are a pain. While they are a great idea in theory, allowing you to effectively turn them into two controllers for competitive use for two-player games on the same console, and also allow for motion controls in games, the design is downright painful. If you have even moderately larger than average hands, the controls are not comfortable to use, and if you have even passing familiarity with PS4 or xbox controllers, the layout of the joy-cons is just annoying and not at all intuitive. The buttons are too small and close together, and the two thumb-sticks are off-set from each other, which does not feel natural when using the two halves of the joy-con as one controller, whether it be on either side of the switch itself in portable mode, or attached to the device that makes them into something resembling the types of controllers used by other devices.
