Three minute promo film shows Nintendo's long-awaited 'handheld console', the Switch
Nintendo stepped back into the console war with the first reveal today of its new hybrid 'handheld console' the Switch.
The hardware firm just showed a 3-minute reveal film that gave us some tantalising glimpses of its attempt to once again shift the tone in the debate of what a gaming device should do.
The Switch is a fascinating mix of a small but powerful console that can be handheld, combining a hi-def screen and controllers in a portable package that make it a supersized 3DS.
If you have a TV to output to, you can then disconnect the controllers and use the system as a standard(ish) console.
Games for the new platform haven't been announced, but the slick first promo vid shows Skyrim, Mario, Zelda, and Splatoon - Skyrim on the go!
Launch dates and prices are not yet decided, but it will hit the shops in March 2017.
