Nintendo Switch Consoles

The Nintendo Switch is a gaming console that is designed for maximum portability. Nintendo has always been known for its high quality consoles and legendary games. The Switch makes it possible to enjoy gaming at any moment throughout your daily routine thanks to the inbuilt screen. You can opt to purchase the Nintendo Switch Console on its own or in a bundle which may include a game and some other extra items.

3 Ways to Play with Nintendo Switch

There are three ways that the Nintendo Switch can be used. Many people will opt to leave it connected to their big screen TV and this is perfect if you want an immersive experience or would like to play multiplayers games with your family. If you are travelling or do not have access to a TV, you can prop the Switch up using the attached stand in what is known as tabletop mode. This mode is great if you have multiple Joy-Con controllers and would like to enjoy a portable multiplayer gaming experience with your friends. Finally, you can opt to use the console in handheld mode with the controls located at either side of the screen. The great flexibility of the Nintendo Switch makes it an innovative console that is perfect for active individuals and frequent travellers that want to enjoy high quality gaming on the move.

Multiplayer and Syncing with other Consoles

The Nintendo Switch video games library is full of great multiplayer games such as Mario Kart Deluxe, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Super Mario and many more. These games are best played with friends and the Nintendo Switch makes it easy to sync with up to 8 other consoles for a local multiplayer experience. This provides each player with their own screen and the maximum amount of screen real estate so it is great for children and adults that like to host gaming parties. In 2018, an online service will be launching that will enable you to play with players all around the world when connected to Wifi.

Joy-Con Controllers

Each Nintendo Switch comes equipped with a left and right Joy-Con controller. Some consoles come with grey controllers whilst others have a neon colour scheme of red and blue. These controllers are versatile, allowing a single player to use both controllers in either hand, provide a controller to a friend, or joining them to the grip to form a single controller. The Joy-Con controllers are also equipped with an accelerometer and gyroscope motion sensor, allowing you to use motion control when the game supports it. The right controller even has a built in motion camera, making the Joy-Con a highly innovative controller. If you will be travelling with your Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con Controllers, you may wish to purchase a Nintendo Switch bag or travel case which will provide protection and keep the components neat and tidy.

Battery Life and Charging of Nintendo Switch

In portable mode you can enjoy up to 3 hours of battery life. When the battery needs to be recharged, simply use a USB-C cable which can be connected to the USB port at the back of the console. USB-C is a new technology that is featured on many devices and the benefits include high power charging and reversible design.
