Introducing Nintendo Switch (2019 Version), the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers.
Three Modes in One
Nintendo Switch is designed to fit your life, transforming from home console to portable system in a snap.
TV Mode: Dock your Nintendo Switch to enjoy HD gaming on your TV.
Tabletop Mode: Flip the stand to share the screen, then share the fun with a multiplayer game.
Handheld Mode: Pick it up and play with the Joy‑Con™ controllers attached.
The included Joy‑Con controllers give you total gameplay flexibility.
Choose your control style: One controller or two, vertical or sideways, attached to the console or separate. You can play multiple ways, depending on the game.
Share with a friend: Pass a single Joy‑Con to a friend for instant two-player fun. Or invite friends to bring their own for a gaming party!
Try something new: HD Rumble puts you in the game with physical feedback, while the IR Motion Camera opens up new experiences like Nintendo Labo.
Better Together: Multiplayer Gaming Options
Local Co-op: Play on the big screen at home with friends.
Local Wireless: Link up to eight Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems together to play multiplayer games anywhere.
Online Play: Team up or face off with others online in compatible games with a Nintendo Switch Online membership.
Battery life is approximately 4.5 to 9 hours, but this will vary depending on the software and usage conditions. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be played for roughly 5.5 hours on a single charge. While away from home, Nintendo Switch can be charged via its USB Type-C port.
