The new Nintendo Switch gaming console has been announced, it is a portable hybrid system that can be played at home in your big screen HDTV or on the go, without compromising a certain feature that the big players such as the Playstation 4 and Xbox One have alienated from their home consoles locally. So what it is its greatest feature you ask? you won’t see the best next-gen graphics nor super power house processor. No, what you will see in the Nintendo Switch is what Nintendo has been champion of doing since the retro days and that is Multiplayer.
As you can see straight from the console its self comes 2 detachable controllers which you can essentially use on one console, but lets say you’re at a party and want to invite friends to play the latest Super Mario game or Mario Kart or Splatoon. With previous handhelds like the 3DS or Playstation Vita you would have need 2 consoles in order to do this. With the Nintendo Switch, you can do it with one.
Or you can do it how it used to on the 3DS, you can have your friends come in with their own console and play 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 as you can see above and below. This is truly amazing and has never been done before on a mobile console.
Playing a NBA2K game 2 vs 2 can now be played on the court or off the court with a buddy. This is really innovative by Nintendo.
Or stepping it up a notch, from the screen above it looks like the Nintendo Switch will be able to play up to 4 players wirelessly together with their own console.
Or even better, Nintendo have stepped it up so much with the new Nintendo Switch that now it will be able to handle up to 4 on 4 Tournament matches using the full console. This is really ground breaking and will bring a new level of excitement Multiplayer experience that wasn’t ever to be done with a portable console.
The Nintendo Switch is truly a amazing device if its able to do everything that the video has been able to show us and we are so excited we can’t wait for March 2017!
