First time ever, Nintendo ran an ad during Super Bowl 51 featuring Nintendo Switch and games such as, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, MarioKart 8 Deluxe etc.
Nintendo Switch is a video game Console which gives you freedom to play when and wherever you want.
The Nintendo Switch basically has a Dock, main Console, 2 Joy-Con Controllers with a Joy-Con grip.
It is a home video game Console when you connect to TV to play games using a cable.
But what makes it different, is when you want to play away from your TV, you remove the Console from the Dock, attach the Joy-Con Controllers to the Console and you can get up & go and play anywhere you want.
The Nintendo Switch can be used in three modes:
- TV Mode: You play games on TV.
- Table Top Mode: Set the Console straight up using a stand in the back, detach the Joy-Con Controllers allowing to you share the screen with others away from the TV.
- Handheld Mode: Attach the Joy-Con Controllers to the Console and take with you anywhere you want even in a car. You can also share a Joy-Con Controller with a friend and play together anywhere.
Battery life varies by game but usually is from 2.5 hrs to more than 6 hrs.
