The Nintendo Switch is the latest in a long line of cutting-edge systems from Nintendo. Since its release in 2017, it has become the go-to system for portable gaming and is enjoyed by kids and adults worldwide. The versatility of the Nintendo Switch system is unmatched, featuring the Joy-Con controller, which works through both buttons and motion controls, on either side of the console. Not only can it be attached to the console, they can also be detached without losing any functionality. Play your favourite games anywhere in handheld mode or as a home console by connecting to a TV, perfect for multiplayer gaming with friends and family. This versatility was brought to new heights with the release of the Nintendo Labo, which uses the Switch to play games using life-like motion, a unique and customisable take on virtual reality.
Being a Nintendo console, the Switch is home to legendary franchises and familiar faces from gaming history. Fans of Super Mario, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Sonic, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Bomberman and Pokémon will feel right at home. Other popular titles include Minecraft, Civilisation VI, FIFA 20 and the game that’s taken the world by storm, Fortnite. Look out for pre orders and upcoming games so you can start playing as soon as they come out.
Make sure you kit your Switch out. Not only do we have the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con and ergonomic Joy-Con grips, but also conventional console controllers, wheels, Pokéballs, tennis rackets and much more that you can use as controllers. Cases and carry bags help to keep your Switch safe and, in addition to a Nintendo Switch charger to plug into the wall, it’s also a great idea to keep a specialised portable power bank handy. If you’re the type to end up playing into the small hours you might want to grab a gaming headset so you can play without keeping up the rest of the house.
Other offerings from Nintendo include the 2DS, 3DS and Wii. The Nintendo 2DS is a modern machine that is still true to its original form, with a flip-up screen and buttons on either side. The video game arena isn’t a one-horse race, with Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One also hot on the competition.
