The Nintendo Switch, known in development as the Nintendo NX, is a gaming device from Nintendo, released March 3, 2017. An HDTV-dockable portable device, it succeeds both the Nintendo 3DS and the set-top Wii U as of late 2019.


An enhanced eighth-generation device, the Switch is a multimode tablet with an HDTV dock and two Joy-Con controller units that can adapt to any gaming environment. When snapped into the included frame, the Joy-Cons form a gamepad; and when attached to the Switch, they form a handheld. They can also be used independently when the tablet is in a free-standing position.

When docked, the Switch operates as a typical set-top unit, and can output to a television screen via HDMI in full 1080p resolution.

Games for the Switch are distributed on Nintendo Switch cards, a departure from the previous three generations' use of optical storage, as well as via digital distribution with a Nintendo eShop, However, Nintendo will not add a Virtual Console service as it has done with its prior systems, instead offering subscription-based retro gaming using the Switch Online service. Developers, meanwhile, are finding creative ways to bring their older works to the system[1].

The Switch also possesses 32GB of onboard flash storage for both games and user data, with a microSD slot for expansion up to 2TB.

Two new versions of the device were announced in mid-2019. The "Switch 2.0" promises improved performance thanks to its advanced specs, while the Switch Lite is a dock-free variant aimed at portable gaming.
