Crucially, both those services had years to reach their current state. In the same report Nintendo also gave shareholders a brief glimpse of what's coming next for the system, citing Nintendo Labo Toy-Con VR Kit's April release, Super Mario Maker 2's June release date and Fire Emblem: Three Houses' July release date as the company's next big launches. If you're struggling for space on your console already, make sure you invest in one of these Nintendo Switch SD cards before they land.

To start, they'll have the neon blue and red ones seen above, in addition to the standard set of gray Joy-Con. As you can see in the image above, each Joy-Con can be held sideways and operated as its own gamepad. The thumbstick in the middle becomes the way you move, and the four buttons on the right side are for interaction. There are even two shoulder buttons on each.
The Nintendo Switch can capture screenshots of games. The system even has a button dedicated to capturing screenshots seen above.
The button is said to also enable sharing of screenshots over social media — directly from the console. The Switch will also record video of gameplay using this button , though that feature won't work at launch in March. It's unclear whether the Switch will be able to stream games live, as the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 can. The Joy-Con controllers are more capable than they look! They rumble. They act as motion controllers.
They can be used as individual gamepads or connected to a Switch tablet and used as one. Surprisingly, a variety of motion games are heading to the Switch in what feels like a bizarre throwback to Nintendo's gimmick with the Wii. Those motion games employ the new "HD Rumble" feature. Nintendo's been making the Pro line of gamepads since the original Wii — a way for people to play Nintendo games with a relatively standard gamepad.
The Nintendo Switch is no exception: this generation's iteration of the Pro controller looks an awful lot like an Xbox One gamepad. The thumbsticks are concave and offset, and four face buttons are on the right side. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is adorably retro in its translucent case. It replicates the functions of the Joy-Con controllers in many ways, albeit in a far more comfortable format.
There's an NFC reader built-in, so that it can be used with Nintendo's popular amiibo toys. It's got motion sensors, so it can be tilted for gameplay in, say, "Splatoon 2".
It's even got the new "HD Rumble" feature more on that below. Top, far left: One example Nintendo gives of how the Switch can be used is in the car. In this instance, someone has purchased a Switch mount; then, the Joy-Cons are detached and used as two individual gamepads. If they look tiny, that's because they're hilariously tiny. While it looks like a lot of fun to play a new "Mario Kart" game in a car, we're betting most folks will either play alone or wait until they get home where there are normal-size gamepads.
Top, middle: Here's a closer look at the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. It's a pretty standard gamepad. It's unclear whether you can use it without the Nintendo Switch Dock — could one of the "Mario Kart" contestants above be using one instead of the tiny gamepads in the example?
Perhaps, but who wants to carry a gamepad everywhere? Top, far right: Nintendo smartly built a kickstand into the read of the Switch tablet. The company envisions this being used for multiplayer gaming and in-flight gameplay — we envision it as an easy way to watch a movie on the Switch. Nintendo hasn't confirmed Switch as a multimedia device, but we'd be shocked if it weren't capable of as much. Bottom, far left: As seen here, the Joy-Con Grip comes together via slidable attachments.
Each side of the Joy-Con gets attached to the Grip by sliding it on. We're eager to see how this works in practice — the last thing anyone wants is a bunch of hardware rattling around in a bag. Bottom: middle: Though Nintendo Switch has an online infrastructure for multiplayer gaming, you can play with friends locally, wirelessly.
This kind of local multiplayer is a standard on Nintendo's handheld consoles, so it's a no-brainer to bring it to the Switch. Nintendo says up to eight people can play together as such. Bottom, far right: When you're done living life out loud, playing games outside, simply plop the Switch tablet into the Switch Dock and it becomes a home console instantly. You can even leave the Joy-Con attached to the tablet and use the Pro controller.
Nintendo's got a stable of games cooking for the Switch: A new 3D "Super Mario" game "Super Mario Odyssey" , a new "Mario Kart" game "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" , an unnamed basketball game that looks suspiciously like the "NBA 2K" series "NBA 2K18" , and Bethesda Game Studios' masterpiece "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" a remastered version of "Skyrim" launched in on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One — this is that version.
And that's not all: "Splatoon 2" is planned for launch this summer, while "1, 2, Switch" and a handful of others are arriving at launch on March 3. Unfortunately, "Super Mario Odyssey" is expected to arrive in "holiday EA also confirmed it's bringing the "FIFA" soccer series to Switch, and a handful of Japanese role-playing games are in the works.
Alongside the Switch, Nintendo is introducing a more fully featured online service. The service will be free for a period after launch in March, but will become a paid service this fall. Kimishima also said that more details are coming, but he didn't say when.
