Latest Nintendo Switch Updates

Nintendo Switch is set to hit store shelves next March, but we know almost nothing about the games we'll be playing on it. Sure, we can expect Nintendo staples like Zelda and Mario, but can the hybrid console secure key third-party titles? Nintendo recently released a list of third-party supporters for Nintendo Switch, including popular developers like Square Enix, Capcom, Bethesda, and From Software, but most of them have yet to confirm any games for the console. Of all the third-party franchises in the market, which one are you hoping to see on Nintendo Switch the most? Hit the jump to join the discussion!

It's almost been week since the reveal of the Nintendo Switch, and a Reddit user has already created some skin designs for the console. DEAD_GIVEAWAY posted a couple of mock-ups straight after the reveal and has since created even more due to requests from fans. The themed skins are inspired by games such as Pokémon, Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Pikmin, and Metroid.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (launching next year on Wii U and Nintendo Switch) features a vast open world for players to explore freely, which is something it has in common with the original Zelda on NES. Thirty years after Link took his first step into the land of Hyrule, Nintendo is still drawing inspiration from the classic game, and Breath of the Wild reflects that in numerous ways. Nintendo has just updated their official Japanese website with a blog and some screenshots that showcase four ways the next Zelda title pays homage to its original predecessor.

Nintendo recently issued its second quarter earnings release, highlighting financial data for the first six months of the current fiscal year. After the earnings release, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima revealed some additional information to the press, including the fact that Nintendo will continue to develop new software for Nintendo 3DS after the launch of Nintendo Switch. Kimishima also expressed confidence that once Nintendo Switch is fully unveiled, consumers will understand how it differs from 3DS.

Nintendo will be launching their next console (a home console/handheld hybrid called Nintendo Switch) in March 2017. If you're intrigued but not yet sold on the console, we have some good news! Following Nintendo's second quarter earnings release, President Tatsumi Kimishima indicated that Nintendo plans to let fans try Nintendo Switch before it launches. Kimishima provided no specific dates or demo locations, but it's something for Switch enthusiasts to look forward to in the coming months.

Nintendo recently lifted the veil on their upcoming console, Nintendo Switch, but there are still many unanswered questions, including pricing. Back when Switch was just known as "NX," Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said that it wouldn't be sold for a loss at launch, and he reiterated that sentiment following the company's second quarter earnings release. However, this time he also clarified that Nintendo is listening to fans when it comes to price, and they want to stay in line with consumer expectations.

Nintendo just released financial data for the first six months of the current fiscal year, but what people really want to know about is the upcoming console, Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, Nintendo didn't provide much new information about the hybrid device, but they did provide an early sales forecast. Nintendo Switch is set to launch sometime in March, and Nintendo plans to ship 2 million units before the end of March. That's a fairly low number, so either the console is launching late in March (with more shipments coming soon after), or Nintendo is expecting very modest sales at launch.

With Nintendo's recent announcement of the Switch, we finally have an idea of each major console developer's next big release. Whether you are excited for 4K gaming on PlayStation 4, want to be out and about playing your Nintendo Switch, or want a premium, next-generation gaming experience with Project Scorpio, it seems there will be something for everyone in the coming months. So, which upcoming console interests you the most?

Nintendo's finally drawn back the curtain on Switch, the game platform previously codenamed "NX." As most of the major rumors totally nailed, it's a new home console that you can take with you on the go. It can plug into your TV via a docking station with HDMI output, or you can remove it from the dock and play it on a high-definition mobile screen.

That's completely category defining — traditionally, TV play and portable play each required a separate system. But what do you call this new category? Nintendo referred to Switch as their next home console in a teaser, but they haven't exactly been quick to coin a new name for their new device class. That they start from the premise that Switch is a home console gives us a powerful clue, though: Switch is a mobile home console.

Nintendo gave us our first look at Nintendo Switch last week, and just as reports and leaks suggested, it's a hybrid device that functions as both a home console and a handheld. Nintendo executives have previously indicated that Switch (only known as NX at the time) could take on the form of a "family of devices," and that has some fans wondering if the handheld unit will be available as a cheaper, standalone option. According to a new report, that won't be the case at launch. Hit the jump for more details.

Nintendo finally lifted the veil on their upcoming console, Nintendo Switch, last week, and a follow-up press release revealed a list of third-party supporters. With EA listed as one of Nintendo's partners, many hopeful fans have been wondering if Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released on the upcoming hybrid console. Unfortunately, those hopes were squashed (at least for the time being) as the game's producer, Michael Gamble, has confirmed on Twitter that there are currently no plans to bring Andromeda to Nintendo Switch.

Despite the large amount of information that has been released about the Nintendo Switch, there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the console. The biggest unanswered question surrounding the Switch has to do with whether or not its controller uses a touchscreen. Nintendo has not provided any official statement on the matter, and the company even refused to respond when a representative was asked a question about the controller earlier this week. Many believe that, because the Nintendo Switch's screen is blank when the console is connected to a television, the controller must not use a touchscreen, since it would be impossible to use the blank screen for touch controls. However, a recent report hints that this might not be the case.

The video game industry has been buzzing with rumors about Nintendo's next console for months, and Nintendo finally broke the silence and officially unveiled Nintendo Switch last week. The initial preview trailer did a great job at conveying the fact that Nintendo Switch is a home console that doubles as a handheld device that plays your games on the go, and it confirmed that the system will use cartridges.

However, there are still many unanswered questions. Our first look at Nintendo Switch did nothing to address pricing, storage, touch or motion controls, or the specifics of the hardware, and it could be awhile before those questions are addressed. With around five months left to go until launch, what's your biggest unanswered question about Nintendo Switch? Hit the jump to join the discussion!

Nintendo has now cast further doubt on the status of the Nintendo Switch lineup, as they've told Eurogamer "You shouldn't assume what you saw on the video represents actual game footage."
