3. Nintendo Switch can be played in three modes.
This is where it gets really cool! You can play the Switch on your TV, as a handheld or in “tabletop” mode, where you can prop the tablet up with a kickstand and detach and play with the controllers. You can see it in action by watching the trailer above — try not to lose it!
4. Some awesome games are set to be released with the console in March.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the minigame collection 1-2-Switch, Just Dance 2017 and Skylanders Imaginators are among the new titles that you can get your hands on. Super Mario Odyssey is also expected to launch during the 2017 holiday season.
5. Games will cost $60.
Switch games will be sold for $60, the same price as most Wii U games. 1-2-Switch will be $49.99, though. Not too bad!
