Nintendo Previews New Portable Game Console

Nintendo Switch controller explained How do the Joy Con controllers work

Nintendo has finally pulled back the curtain on the mysterious "NX" console, known officially as the Nintendo Switch.

The tablet part of the console seems like the heart of the console, with everything revolving around it.

The Wii U features a controller with a tablet-size touchscreen, somewhat similar to the design of the undocked Switch. From what we see in the trailer there are cartridges that go into the top of the device and there are removable controllers that slide off the sides of the screen and enhance the experience. Both Joy-Con controllers are identical button-wise, with an analogue stick and four buttons arranged in a diamond. In a release, Nintendo called those units Joy-Con controllers. A pro-version of the controller also will be available for purchase. If you're with a group of people, you can connect several Switch systems together for "local multiplayer face-to-face competition", the company said.

According to the EnGadget, Nintendo made a statement that the project NX will be a combination of portable and desktop console. "It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries". Eiji Maeda, an analyst at SMBC Nikko Securities adds that while the games demonstrated will appeal to existing Nintendo fans, there was nothing new that was shown off that could be considered groundbreaking.

Nintendo also announced partnerships with dozens of third party developers and publishers.

From the video, the Nintendo Switch looks to use game cards like those the DS and 3DS handhelds, so Wii U backwards compatibility may be out of the question.

One thing we don't see in the entire video is anyone touching the screen, so we can't actually tell for sure whether the Switch is using a touch screen. We are more than happy to support the promising game system and enhance our ongoing partnership with Nintendo.
