Watch: Nintendo Reveals Its Unusual New Console


Nintendo released the first trailer for their new gaming console, Nintendo Switch (previously code-named Nintendo NX), which is set to hit shelves March 2017. The name comes from the system’s versatility: it can be played both on the road as a handheld device and at home on the TV.

The trailer looks crazy, and the system offers gamers the chance to revisit the world of Zelda, Pokemon, Mario and more — but is it a flawed premise? Nintendo seems to be banking on the fact that people will want to take another device, other than their phone, on the road. Little else is known about the system at this time, but we encourage you to watch the trailer and form your own opinions.
