"Nintendo" revealed technical details of the Switch, known to be their hybrid console. March 3, 2017 will be its launch date of "Nintendo Switch" as Nintendo said at a press event in Tokyo last January 13, 2017. Switch is designed primarily as a home console.

The Switch's most distinguishable features are the detachable controllers called the Joy-Con controllers. According to Forbes, even if the system had a hard time executing, in the recent years the company has made its platform pretty clear.

 Everybody is excited to try this hybrid console of Nintendo, a lot of discussion on who might be the market of the new console, and why they should buy it. But the console seems to have a problem with the casual gamers. Casual gamers are typically older than traditional computer gamers, and more often female, with over 74% of casual gamers being female.

They typically play on a personal computer online in web browsers, although they are now starting to become popular on game consoles and mobile phones. CinemaBlend stated that Nintendo Switch would encounter different future on marketplace compared to the Wii but for sure it will not encounter the two major faults encountered by the previous console.

Nintendo Switch is a clear and compelling home console where you can play anywhere and with anyone. The console can give all their casual gamers a promise of local multiplayer, which appears to be the best selling point of the unit. The consoles cartoony approached is the one that the kids, adults, and families loved the most, and willing to spend some for the console. That one is real, but regarding to the price of the system, casual gamers might probably having a problem. It will cost you $440 if you will get any kind of 4 player action. These issues might change the gamers mind and rather go for the April release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this year.
