Okay, this is just insane. We’ve been given a first look at Nintendo Switch, a new gaming system that lets you play the same game where and whenever across multiple consoles — you’ll see exactly what we mean when you watch the video of it in action. See the trailer for Nintendo Switch here and check out the best fan reactions!
Nintendo Switch won’t be out until March 2017, but today, Oct. 20, gamers were treated to a first glimpse of the revolutionary new system. WATCH a trailer for it above, and try not to lose your mind at the epicness of it all!
After almost a year of rumors and secrecy, we now know that Nintendo Switch is a hybrid mobile and home console system. It has a tablet element for you to play on the go with detachable controllers called “Joy-Con”, and a “Switch Dock” for you to plug in at home and play on a big screen. From the trailer, it looks like games are seamlessly transferred between consoles by an SD card-style piece. Needless to say, we want it.
“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”
Obviously, fans immediately lost their minds once the trailer dropped. “MY NINTENDO FAN SENSES JUST WENT HAYWIRE I AM SO F*CKING STOKED,” @AceAryzen tweeted. “The Nintendo Switch seems like an actual, thoughtful consideration of why people play games & how they might better fit w/ a full human life,” @ZakMcc agreed. Take a look at more reactions (and necessary puns) below:
Glad to see Nintendo… switch-ing it up a little.

The Nintendo Switch looks pretty cool. I'm getting the same vibe I got when I first saw the DS and that worked out pretty well for me.

If you buy the new Nintendo system on day one, only to resell it on Ebay for a profit, would you say you…

My favourite part of the Nintendo Switch reveal was when the dude lost his dog because he was too busy playing video games.

Nintendo NX is known now as "switch."
console handheld hybrid. Has skyrim on it as well as some backwards compatible wii u games. Neat.
