Pros and cons

According to our console expert
  • Use the Nintendo Switch as a console for in the living room, and as a handheld console for on the go.
  • With 1 set of Joy-Con controllers, you can play alone or with 2 players.
  • With the Switch, you're no longer stuck to your living room to play major titles like Skyrim and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
  • The 6.2-inch screen seems too small for more than 2 players on the go.

Description

We've tested it ourselves. Read our expert review of the Nintendo Switch here.

The Nintendo Switch is a combination of the traditional living room console and a handheld console for on the go. The Switch can be used in 3 different ways. Place the Switch in the docking station and play your games on the large TV in your living room. Using the console on the go? Play with the controllers on either side of the 6.2-inch screen, similar to the Wii U GamePad. Detach the 2 Joy-Con controllers to play with 2 people, each using one controller. If you have more than 2 controllers, you can play on 1 Nintendo Switch with up to 4 players.
