The Nintendo Switch (Codenamed Nintendo NX) Officially Announced by Nintendo

It would appear that most of the rumors and speculation surrounding what the Nintendo NX would be (i.e. a hybrid handheld/home console system with detachable controllers, that uses game cartridges instead of DVDs), was all validated today when Nintendo released a three minute video showing an actor playing the Nintendo Switch on a television at home.

As the video plays, we see the actor remove the Nintendo Switch from its home console processing dock – reattaching the controllers — and then heading to the woods with his dog to continue playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This validates claims that Nintendo’s new console is a bonafide handheld that can be played anywhere, even outside the home.

The biggest revelation came when the video showcased some of the the Nintendo Switch’s launch titles: Is that The Witcher 3 and Skyrim being played at the end of the video? It sure looks like it. We are also shown brief clips of actors playing a new Mario Kart and a new Mario game, adding to the fever pitch excitement this long-awaited announcement brings.

The pricing for the Switch still hasn’t been official announced, but rumors have the main console (i.e. the portable and the joysticks) retailing for $299.99, while the complete system bundle – which contains the processing dock to enhance the system’s performance and connect it to a television – retailing for $399.99. Again, these prices are not confirmed, and could change at a moment’s notice.

Be sure to stay tuned to for updates on Nintendo’s exciting new console system.

UPDATE: 10-20-2016 2:59EST:

Nintendo has just released a partial list of partners supporting the Nintendo Switch. Is that Bethesda we see in their partner list? Say it isn’t so.
