Nintendo during an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu revealed that the upcoming hybrid console won’t be playing Wii U Discs or 3DS cartridges – but who cares right? From first look, it’s almost impossible to fully grasp what the Switch can do so let’s get you up to date. To the left, we have the portable/Detachable shell which contains the Joy Con (That's what the controllers are called) and to the right, we have the portable dock inside a casing of its own.
So here’s someone enjoying "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" on his TV using the Nintendo Switch.
Let’s say he has somewhere to be but doesn’t want the fun to stop, here’s what he does. He removes the joy controllers from the detachable shell and attaches them to the portable dock, Voila, you have a portable gaming station.
In some cases, as required by the game, you can prop the game and use one-half of the controller on each hand… Just like the Wii remote.
If you’re not a fan of the portable gaming idea, you can get a Pro controller which looks quite similar to that of the Xbox.
And it’s even better with friends…
We have seen probably 4/5 different configurations which the Switch can adapt.
Instead of coming on discs, games will come in small SD like cartridges. Very Ballsy move from Nintendo, the Switch launches March 2017.
