Available now: Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is a useful console that allows you to play games at home, on the go, and with others for hours on end. You can also connect the Switch to the TV via the Nintendo dock that is included by default. This provides a bigger screen and you can play with 4 people. You can also play against the rest of the world online.

The Console

Nintendo Switch console

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.

The controllers


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.
