Nintendo Switch is a breakthrough home video game console. It not only connects to a TV at home, but it also instantly transforms into an on-the-go handheld using its 6.2-inch screen.
For the first time, players can enjoy a full home-console experience anytime, anywhere. This console comes with Neon Blue/Neon Red Joy-Con Controllers.
The Nintendo Official UK Store offer an extended 2 year warranty on all Nintendo Switch consoles.
The following types of microSD card can be used with the Nintendo Switch console:
- To use a microSDXC memory card, you must first connect the console to the internet and perform a system update.
We recommend that you use a high-speed microSD card to get the most out of your Nintendo Switch console.
A high-speed microSD card:
- supports UHS-I (Ultra High Speed Phase I)
- has a read speed of 60-95MB/s (the higher the read/write speed, the better)
Nintendo Switch also contains a number of built-in features that make it more interactive. The left Joy-Con has a Capture Button that players can press to take instant screenshots of gameplay to share with friends on social media.
The right Joy-Con includes an NFC touchpoint for interaction with amiibo figures, as well as an IR Motion Camera that can detect the distance, shape and motion of nearby objects in specially designed games.
For example, it can tell how far away a player’s hand is, and even if the hand is forming a rock, paper or scissors shape.
Both Joy-Con include advanced HD rumble, which can provide compatible games with subtle vibrations that are much more realistic than before. The effect is so detailed that a player could, for example, feel the vibration of individual ice cubes colliding inside a glass when shaking a Joy-Con. With HD rumble you can experience a level of realism not possible through sights and sounds alone.
Nintendo Switch makes it easy for players to stay connected. Up to 8 consoles can be connected for local wireless play. By placing the console upright using the built-in kickstand, players can independently use the left and right Joy-Con controllers to experience multiplayer fun anywhere. The console will support online Wi-Fi multiplayer gaming. Nintendo also unveiled a new online subscription service that will begin with a free trial at launch.
The service includes a smart-device application available in summer 2017 that will let users invite friends to play online, set play appointments, and chat with one another as the play compatible games.
The fully featured paid service will be available in autumn.
