Latest Nintendo Switch Updates

The Nintendo Switch, Nintendo's next home console, was officially revealed on October 20th after months of anticipation.

Shortly after it was first announced, many fans noticed something interesting about the Switch's bizarre controller. With its square shape and rounded handles, it looks exactly like an adorable-black and white puppy. Immediately after this was first pointed out, the internet adopted the Nintendo Switch puppy as the console's unofficial mascot. Head inside to learn more!

We've been covering the Nintendo Switch a lot lately, but there's still more news coming in. According to both a brief shot in the reveal trailer and reports from other news outlets, the Switch will be using USB-C for charging and possibly mass data transfer. This would fit well with the Switch, as USB-C is a relatively new standard that supports incredible charging and data transfer speeds and would enable the easy docking and un-docking we see in the trailer. Fast charging would be an absolute necessity, as the Switch is reported to have only three hours of battery life.

Nintendo's upcoming hybrid console, Nintendo Switch, works as both a home console and a handheld, but it takes after the latter when it comes to physical games.

Last week, Nintendo finally unveiled the long-rumored console, Nintendo Switch. The trailer that Nintendo showed last week gave us a tiny glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming console, but it doesn't look like we got the whole picture. According to Eurogamer, Nintendo Switch's tablet will have a 6.2", 720p Multi-Touch Screen. Nintendo Switch's screen would allow multi-finger gestures, whereas the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U featured single-touch screens. While Nintendo "has nothing to announce" regarding a touch screen for Nintendo Switch, it's likely they'll reveal more information at the media briefing in January.

It's another day, and that means it's time for another tidbit of Nintendo Switch news, courtesy of Laura Dale (who has proven accurate regarding Nintendo Switch leaks thus far) of Let's Play Video Games. According to her latest report, dev kits for Nintendo's next console support Micro SDXC cards up to 128 GB in size.

It's unconfirmed at this point if the finished product will have the same Micro SD support as the dev kits.

Last week, Nintendo finally lifted the veil on their next console, Nintendo Switch, with a preview trailer. The video quickly accumulated over 10 million views, making it the most-watched Nintendo YouTube video ever. Speaking with investors after Nintendo's second quarter earnings release, company President Tatsumi Kimishima revealed that official uploads of the trailer have now reached over 23 million views. Even more impressively, the official videos have a positive reaction rate of over 95%. Kimishima added "We are very confident that a lot of consumers around the world have become interested in Nintendo Switch."

Last week, Nintendo finally unveiled Nintendo Switch as their next home console. The handheld/home console hybrid will be releasing in March, but Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima indicated earlier today that the public will have a chance to go hands-on before then. We didn't have to wait long for the first details about these demo events, as Nintendo announced today that the first play test will be taking place at Tokyo Big Site on January 14th and 15th, 2017. This event will be open to the public, but there are no details on how to attend it at this time.

After months of rumors and speculation, Nintendo officially unveiled Nintendo Switch as their next home console. Although the reveal trailer did a good job at conveying the device's hybrid nature (functioning as both a home console and a handheld), it didn't give us any details about pricing, storage, launch lineup, or many other important factors, and Nintendo doesn't plan to share anymore specifics this year. Thankfully, we now know when we can expect the next round of Nintendo Switch news. Hit the jump for the details!
