    Hardware Overview

    Unboxing

    Learn more about the Nintendo Switch

    The Switch (previously known by the codename Nintendo NX) is a hybrid games console revealed by Nintendo. Since launching in March 2017, it has taken the UK (and the rest of the world!) by storm. Fix the console to a static dock at home to output your game to your TV, or remove the console, attach the physical controllers and play on-the-go.

    Gaming whenever, wherever

    Play it in the home, pick it up and play on the go, remove the controllers and play with friends, play however you want. The message is clear, Nintendo has built a console that allows you to switch how you play based on your mood.

    Powered by Nvidia

    Powered by Nvidia

    The console monopoly of AMD is no-more. Nvidia are supplying a custom version of the Tegra processor to power the Nintendo Switch. The high-efficiency scalable processor includes an NVIDIA GPU based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards. What does this mean? Well, like Nvidia say themselves; the Nintendo Switch will be really fun to play with incredible performance and great graphics.

    Third party support

    While Nintendo consoles are always most associated with their roster of exclusive first party titles, the Switch has already received a range of highly-rated third party titles. Rocket League, Skyrim, and FIFA have all already made appearances on the Switch, while ports of intensive current generation games such as DOOM and Wolfenstein 2 are a testament to both the power of the Switch, and how much developers are willing to support it.

    Third party support

    Local Multiplayer Games

    Local multiplayer revolutionised

    If you’re someone with fond memories of crowding on the sofa with your friends for some frantic local multiplayer action, the Switch is the console for you. The Joy Con controller can be divided in half, meaning you can enjoy four player action with just two pairs of Joy Cons. Plus, with Nintendo exclusives such as Mario Kart, there’s no better console to play with friends.

    Exclusive gaming classics

    No company can boast the same number of exclusive, beloved gaming franchises as Nintendo. The Legend of Zelda series returns in an epic new adventure, The Breath of the Wild. Following hot on Zelda’s heels was Mario, who returned with a new 3D adventure, Super Mario Odyssey, which was similarly critically acclaimed. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe proved one of the year’s most popular titles. Into 2018, and the exclusives keep on coming, including a new Smash Bros game and two new Pokémon titles, Let’s Go! Pikachu and Let’s Go! Eevee.

    Nintendo NX Logo

    The first mention of the Nintendo NX

    Nintendo’s late president Satoru Iwata fired the starter pistol on the speculation over Nintendo’s next console in March 2015, saying “let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated gaming platform with a brand-new concept under the development codename “NX””. Iwata’s mention of a membership service that would encompass the 3DS, the Wii U and the NX caused a further stir, with speculation centering around where the NX would sit within Nintendo’s console offering if they were to continue with the 3DS as the flagship handheld and the Wii U as the dedicated home console.

    The NX gets a launch date

    Any doubt as to whether the NX was to be a fully fledged new piece of technology rather than an upgrade on either the DS range or the Wii U was extinguished in April 2015 when, in an investor’s meeting, the Japanese gaming giant revealed the release date for the new hardware as March 2017.

    Breath of the Wild

    Breath of the Wild unveiled as a launch title

    Although Nintendo disappointed many of their legions of hardcore fans by not revealing any details whatsoever about the NX at the E3 expo, they did offer a tantalising glimpse of the future by revealing that the upcoming The Legend of Zelda title, The Breath of the Wild, was to be released on both the Wii U and the NX as a launch title. Creator of the Mario and Zelda series Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Nintendo weren’t more forthcoming about details of the NX because they feared that it would be copied if they revealed information too far in advance of launch.

    The Nintendo NX

    Hardware rumours abound

    In late July, various leaks centering on the specifics of the NX’s core design and some of the technology it would be using began to be reported. Most significant was the speculation that the NX would be an unusual hybrid concept that was capable of functioning as both a home console and as a portable, courtesy of a pair of controllers that could attach to either end of a tablet-like body. Further rumours linked in the NX to Nvidia’s Tegra mobile processor chip, and suggested that the console would use cartridges like those of the 3DS rather than less handheld-friendly discs.

    The Switch is officially unveiled

    Following months of speculation, the Nintendo Switch – as it is now known – was unveiled. As had been previously rumoured, the Switch is a hybrid device capable of being played in both handheld and console modes. The official announcement was accompanied by a launch trailer that showed the three main ways the console could be used; as a traditional console-TV-controller set up, as a portable with the Joy-Con controllers attached, and in tabletop mode using the built in kickstand.

    Switch presentation

    The date is set

    At a livestreamed event in Tokyo, Nintendo unveiled further details of the Switch’s hardware, showcased some of its launch titles playing on the system and, most importantly, revealed the worldwide launch date for the console; March 3rd. The event showcased Nintendo’s dedication to the system, which many argued had been lacking from their pre-launch promotional efforts for the Wii U. This enhanced backing culminated with a spot during the Superbowl in the US.

    Another sales milestone

    Less than a year after launch, the Switch hits 14.86 million units sold, putting it more than a million ahead of how many consoles the Wii U sold over the course of its entire lifetime. There’s no denying it; Nintendo have a hit console on their hands.

    It’s great news for gamers too, with the more consoles sold the more AAA games the system is likely to receive.

    Switch launch

    Switch on

    The Switch is launched on March 3rd and almost immediately sells out worldwide, with estimates suggesting that the system sold between 1.5 and 2 million units in its first week, a record for a Nintendo system. The Switch was aided by its launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which was released to critical acclaim, with many reviewers suggesting it deserved to be part of the conversation about the best game ever.

    Nintendo share price rockets

    Despite worldwide shortages of the Switch, it continues to sell in incredible volumes, and rarely stays in stock for long anywhere. The Switch’s early unbridled success does much to put minds at ease about Nintendo’s ability to make up ground after the Wii U, with the Japanese company’s share price reflecting that. In May, it hits a seven year-high.

    E3 offers more reasons to be cheerful

    Even with expectations high for what Nintendo would announce at the annual E3 convention, Nintendo arguably surpassed them with a slew of game showcases that left fans in little doubt as to the long term prospects of the Switch. A Kirby game, a Pokemon RPG, Metroid Prime 4 and a Yoshi game represented a predictably strong first party lineup, while Rocket League was a surprise third-party announcement, joining Skyrim with a Q4 2017 launch.

    Splatoon 2 artwork

    Stock worries ease

    Supported by an increasingly strong lineup of games, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2, the Switch continues to perform fantastically well, although stock is now easier to find generally. Nintendo also announces a new Mario Odyssey hard bundle for the Switch, to sit alongside the Splatoon 2 bundle launched in July.

    Odyssey begins a legacy

    Super Mario Odyssey, the Italian plumber’s first sandbox-style adventure in years, is released. It achieves critical acclaim to rival that given to Switch launch title Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and has gamers asking if any console has ever had two better games in its first year. Critics predict that Odyssey and Zelda will duke it out between them for the honour of ‘game of the year’ titles in a year that will go down in even Nintendo’s storied history.

    The jewel in the crown

    The jewel in the crown

    Nintendo caps a superb year with Switch launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild winning Game of the Year at the Game Awards 2017. They use the award to announce the launch of the second piece of DLC for Breath of the Wild, which features the game’s first story expansion. Also announced are Switch ports of Bayonetta 1 and 2 and a new Switch exclusive, the third game in the series.

    Switch going strong

    After several months of excellent sales numbers, fantastic games and increasingly solid stock levels, Nintendo revise their sales target for the Switch. Having originally forecast 10 million units sold by March (a year into the console’s life cycle), they now aim to have moved 14 million units. The PS4 sold a similar amount, while the Xbox One hit around 10 million. The 14 million mark is also significant, as it would mean that the Switch had surpassed the Wii U’s lifetime sales in under a year. Nintendo are back.

    Mini Direct lays out the Switch’s upcoming titles

    With E3 2016 announced games like Metroid Prime 4 and Pokémon still a long way off, Nintendo launch a Mini Direct to unveil some upcoming games. The most significant announcements are a new edition of Mario Tennis, Mario Tennis Aces, a remastered version of the classic Dark Souls, and a re-release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Also previewed are DLC and updates to Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Pokken Tournament DX.

    Nintendo LABO launches

    Nintendo LABO launches

    Nintendo have always been known for their out of the box thinking, and LABO is an example of just that – as well as thinking with the box. LABO enables gamers to create their own cardboard creations and bring them to life with Switch software. April sees the first two kits launch, the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit, which lets players build a backpack and becoming a Godzilla-size robot, rampaging through a city.

    Undocked

    Nintendo begins selling a version of the Switch in Japan without the dock and AC adaptor. The logic behind the move is that they want to encourage those who live in a house with a Switch, but who don’t own one themselves, to buy a console without having to pay for a dock they don’t need. No word is given when we might see a similar option in the UK.

    20 million

    Nintendo announce that 19.67 million Switch consoles have been sold as of the end of June, meaning that by the point they make the announcement, the total is more than 20 million. Nintendo also have set an ambitious target of selling 20 million units between April and March 2019. While they’ve sold around 2 million so far, with Super Smash Bros Ultimate and two new Pokemon games on the way, don’t rule it out!
