Available now: Nintendo Switch
Thanks to the improved battery life, you can use this Switch on the go longer on a single charge.
You can use the Nintendo Switch as a console in your living room and as a handheld console for on the go with a better battery life.
With one set of Joy-Con controllers, you can play alone or with 2 players.
The 6.2-inch screen is too small to be able to play with more than 2 players on the go.
The battery life: According to Nintendo, the updated version gives you about 6 hours extra battery life. This is long enough to last a long car ride or an average international flight.
Region-free: With a region-free console, you can also play games that you imported from Japan (which are never released in Europe) or bought during a vacation.
You can use the controllers while they're detached and in some games, 1 Joy-Con can be used by 1 Player. You can play a game like Mario Kart with your brother on the same console. Since they also have an IR camera and a rumble motor for force feedback, these small controllers offer more than you would expect.
