Nintendo Switch (Platform)

Logo for Initial version

Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console/tablet. The tablet becomes a console via a docking station connected to a tv set. Nintendo regards the concept as mainly a home gaming system rather than portable. The Switch features two wireless controllers, which may be used individually or attached to a grip to get a more traditional controller.
