What is the Nintendo Switch?
The Nintendo Switch is a gaming console that gives you the portability of a handheld device with the power of a home gaming system. At home, your Nintendo Switch can rest in the Nintendo Switch dock that connects the system to your TV. By simply lifting your Nintendo Switch from the dock, the console will instantly transition to portable mode, and you can enjoy the same great gaming experience on the go. The mobility of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display.
Experience a variety of games.
The Nintendo Switch gaming console lets you play a large assortment of exclusive video games in a wide variety of genres. Choose from traditional platformers, open-world RPG adventures, physical interactive party games and more. Step into a world of adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, race your friends in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, or battle enemies in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The exciting collection of Nintendo Switch games also includes Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Super Mario Party and more. The Nintendo Network offers even more opportunities for excitement. With a Nintendo eShop prepaid card, you can purchase games, videos and other content.
Customize your gaming experience with accessories.
The Switch is an incredibly versatile console, and Nintendo Switch accessories allow you to customize your play even further. You can use two Joy-Con controllers independently in each hand, slip them both into a grip for a conventional controller feel, or connect a strap to one controller. If you prefer a traditional controller, try a Nintendo Switch pro controller — it works with any mode and includes motion controls and two analog control sticks. Interactive amiibo figures are fun accessories and they are unique to Nintendo. These figures of favorite Nintendo characters can greatly enhance your gaming experience. Simply tap an amiibo figure to the designated spot on a controller to unlock new characters and game modes. Some games even let you level up or customize your character using an amiibo.
