Soon, Nintendo’s new platform “Switch” will become widely available on the market. Before that, it is good to keep yourself informed about the console, its capabilities and available catalogue.

Forbes Magazine has announced that on 12 January, 11pm ET, Nintendo will make an official online reveal of its new console “Nintendo Switch”. During the online event, the console will be shown, its functions capabilities, price and available retailers to order the product from.
Those who want to have a first-hand experience with the console can try it out at these events PAX South in San Antonio (Jan. 27-29), PAX East in Boston (March 10-12) and SXSW in Austin, Texas (March 16-18).

Time shares what makes the “Nintendo Switch” console different from all other mobile and static consoles. First, the tablet, which also functions as a screen is where the whole processing power is hidden. This means that no matter where you take it, you will always have 100% performance, unlike the Wii U’s portable screen, which allowed to play only in a close vicinity to the main box.

Under the screen, the power of Nvidia Tegra processors has been embedded.
It is presumed that in the “Nintendo Switch” have been used Nvidia Tegra X1 processors, which are capable of delivering a steady 1080p experience, with the possibility of delivering a 4K experience, which is where the trend is taking its turn.

The IGN Switch Wiki has shared interesting data on the confirmed “Nintendo Switch” games.
Among the usual suspects are “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”, “Mario Kart Switch”, “Dragon Quest XI” and a Sonic game for now titled “Sonic 2017”. Among the possible candidates for future release are “Beyond Good and Evil 2”, “Hearthstone” and Bethesda’s hit “The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim”. “Nintendo Switch” will be released in March, 2017.
