In the preview video above, we’re introduced to the Nintendo Switch via a late 20-something man who is playing Skyrim on his device at home on the tv like a regular console, and in various places around the world as a handheld device.
It looks like the Switch comes with gaming sticks on either side of the screen that function as a gaming pad when playing alone, or as two controllers for multiplayer gaming. The device can also be used with a traditional full sized controller, or you can put together a controller created with the two gaming sticks.
Nintendo already has a stable of publishers who will be releasing Nintendo versions of their games: stalwarts like Konami, SEGA and CAPCOM, and multiplatform sellers like Activision and Bethesda are on the list.
The console is schedule for release in March of 2017.
Think the new console may have an effect on any esports scenes?
