Nintendo Switch Video Game Consoles
The Switch from Nintendo is a unique video game console that allows you to play games on a handheld console or on the TV. The device can easily switch from handheld to TV by just sliding it in and out of its holder. Nintendo and third-party developers are constantly coming out with new releases so that gamers are never bored.How does the Nintendo Switch work?
The Switch gaming console can be played in two ways: as a handheld device when it is in portable mode or on the TV when it is in docked mode. There are several main components for the Switch:
- Console: The tablet-like game system has a 6.2-inch LCD screen that supports multi-touch capacitive sensing, like a smartphone. The display has a slot for the games, a USB-C charging port, and a kickstand.
- Dock: The docking station connects the gaming system to a TV via an HDMI cable.
- Joy-Cons: Each game setup comes with two controls. These thin controllers can attach to a grip controller, the screen component, or by themselves.
- Accessories: There are a number of different accessories available to make your gameplay more fun, including the Pro Controller and steering wheel add-ons.
The Nintendo Switch has a few benefits that make it stand out:
- SD cards: The games are all loaded onto SD cards, allowing you to have physical game content that does not take up tons of room.
- Modes: This system can be enjoyed in three different ways, allowing you to game by yourself or with friends. Switching between modes is quick and easy.
- Parental controls: This app allows parents to allow for a maximum screen time or prevent them from watching certain videos.
- Add friends: You can accept friend requests so that you can all enjoy an online game together.
Nintendo and third-party developers are constantly adding releases available for this system. Although many of the standard games are multiple player games, others are open world. Some of the games include:
- Mario games: Some Mario games are single-player. Others, like Mario Kart games, allow multiple players and are particularly fun at parties.
- Zelda - Breath of the Wild: Since its release, this open world game has been one of the most talked about games on any platform.
- Rhythm and puzzle games: Games like Thumper and Puyo Puyo Tetris are fun games that test your mind.
