Since the start, Nintendo Switch appears like a decent shift from the previous gaming systems, introducing a more minimalist appearance that is sleeker yet much easier to understand by the user. According to reports, the icons for the Nintendo Store, Messages, Brightness and Power are clearly seen, which enables the users to access each from the home screen easily.

Nintendo Switch is set to release on March 3, and will perform as a hybrid console of sorts. Furthermore, the new system is reported to be played on the TV with the use of a special dock or utilized as another tablet-like display, along with its own attachable controls (that can subsequently be removed and used as motion controllers). The gaming console will be priced at $299 and will feature titles such as "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" as part of its lineup, GamingBolt reported.

In fact, Target, Amazon, Walmart, Toys R Us and Best Buy all reportedly list Nintendo Switch, which launches on March 3, as unavailable, three days following the opening of pre-orders, according to Polygon.
