A taste of the Nintendo Switch: What you need to know

The Switch is Nintendo’s pioneering console, giving you the best of home and handheld console in one easy convenient package. It’s the first gaming system through which you can start playing a game on the big screen, then grab the console, and continue playing on the bus or anywhere else until the battery runs out, unless you have a battery pack.

The console itself is a 6.2-inch tablet that plugs into an HDMI/USB-C dock. The two removable Joy-Con controllers slot into the tablet when you’re on the move, but work through Bluetooth when you’re not.
