Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch has launched globally

04 Mar 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Nintendo has released its latest game console worldwide. The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console that you can pick up and take with you or connect to the big screen at home. It is available now for $299 with launch titles such as Zelda.

Nintendo Switch has arrived

Nintendo Switch was unveiled in October 2016 and we learned more about it in January 2017. It will take over after the flop Wii U that never managed to challenge PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Switch is a unique take on the modern game console. Nintendo has started to release games on both iOS and Android mobile devices but still believes that there is room for a dedicated gaming device so it has designed Switch as a hybrid. At home you can connect it to the TV through a docking station and when away you can take it with you as a tablet.

Inside there is an Nvidia Tegra processor that delivers games in up to 1080 HD quality.




Nintendo has created new ’Joy-Con’ game controllers that you can combine in different ways. The company will also sell a more traditional game controller dubbed ‘Pro’ as well as the ’Joy-Con Wheels’ for Mario Kart.


Zelda, Mario, Skylanders

Only a few games are available at launch but Nintendo and partners have promised to bring out many more in the coming months and years. At launch you can play games such as ’Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’, ’Just Dance 2017’, ’1-2-Switch’ and ’Super Bomberman R’. The games will typically cost around $50-60 dollars.

Future titles include 'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe', 'Splatoon 2', 'Super Mario Odyssey', 'Minecraft: Story Mode', 'Skylanders Imaginators', 'Rayman Legends', 'Skyrim', 'Minecraft', 'NBA 2K18' and 'Arms'.

Nintendo Switch is available now in the US for $299, in the UK for £279, in Europe for €330.
