Nintendo Switch is a new Nintendo console with a release date of March 3, 2017 for $ 300. This new console is a kind of hybrid between TV and laptop with a 6.2 inch touch screen, and 2 side controls that have motion sensors, advanced vibration and several ways of use. The Console is attached to a dock that passes the game to TV, the controls are removed and attached to a kind of support that recharges them.
The video below shows a little of the concept of the console, and then we will give a summary and quote important information about it.

Gaming is one of the things that most makes viewers doubtful about the console's success. For those who are a fan of Nintendo franchises, you will not be without the classics Mario, Zelda and other Nintendo IPs. Something that many question is the support of thirds (third parties), whether or not they will launch games for the Switch or if it will be able to run the games of today.
In my opinion, the Nintendo Switch has full ability to run games, just as the X360 had the ability to run GTAV even though it was inferior to WII U that did not receive the game. What will define whether the console will receive games or not is its sales, it is noted that even the 3DS receives annual games from FIFA and PES while the WII U with its low sales does not. Thus, it is unlikely that the hardware of the console will define whether or not it will receive games. The 3DS library is really gigantic even though it is a much smaller console than the WII U. Below is a complete list of games already announced and confirmed for the console:
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (March)

Switch Hardware and Software
So far the Nintendo Switch Hardware is a mystery, but it is equipped with a customized Tegra and has 4G RAM and 32GB of internal storage with expansion via MicroSD. The console will use game cards and has a battery that lasts up to 6 hours. In the dock, the console can play games in full HD and in portable HD mode.
The Console will be easy to program, facilitating game port, in addition to supporting Unreal Engine 4 and several other engines. The interface of the console and its operating system is simple and minimalist. The console will also have the option to share photos and gameplays, in addition to a good online network with voice chat support and others, which unfortunately will be paid for.
