Finally, codename Nintendo NX is finally revealed and it's now called the Nintendo Switch. The wait is over and the speculations have ended. One thing has been confirmed though; The Nintendo Switch is not entirely a console, and has been advertised more as a handheld device. Apparently, Nintendo seriously takes their brand on the go and will not allow you to enjoy it home only.

Expected to arrive in 2017, the all new Nintendo Switch has its own line of exclusive titles and the much awaited specifications were also revealed. Some of the confirmed titles for the new device include "The legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," "Dragon Quest XI," "Project Sonic 2017" and "Just Dance 2017." Meanwhile, unconfirmed titles, but highly considered to be included in the lineup are "Super Mario Game," "New Mario Kart Game," "Skyrim Remastered," "Splatoon" and "NBA 2K17."

The Nintendo Switch is equipped with a dedicated stand that is also the main screen when converted to a handheld device. Additionally, detachable controllers can be attached and removed from the central module called, the Joy-Con Grip. When controllers are removed, the Nintendo Switch can be used as controller, just like the ones on the PS4 and Xbox One system.

Meanwhile, if you are looking for more new games for the Nintendo Switch, the lack of featured titles should not dishearten players. Why? Because some of the Switch's game developer partners include Activision, Atlus, Bethesda, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Konami, SEGA, Squareenix and EA.

Also, third party game developers are contemplating on joining the bandwagon. According to the Eurogamer, Two Tribes (Toki Tori 2) is planning on shifting Rive from the Wii U to the new Nintendo Switch platform. Project Cars on the other hand may directly skip the Wii U and go the next gen Nintendo console as well.
