Nintendo has finally revealed its much rumored and anticipated console, Nintendo Switch. Aside from its partnership with third party publishers and some games, not much is known about the console. However, Famitsu was able to get some new detials about the upcoming console.

In an interview with Famitsu, Nintendo was asked if Nintendo Switch will be compatible with Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. To this the company responded that their upcoming console is not the successor of either of them so it would not be the case.

However, one interesting thing is that Nintendo clearly specified that players will not be able to use the Wii U game discs and Nintendo 3DS cards, but still it leaves the possibility that downloadable versions of the games might be playable on Nintendo Switch.

Also Nintendo revealed that the battery timing for Nintendo Switch is quite long, as the console was designed so that users could play games as long as possible, even at those places where users don’t have access to a power outlet.

When asked about whether or not the console will be able to play games for smart devices since it is powered by Nvidia Tegra processor. Nintendo said that they can’t answer this question right now.

Ubisoft has always been very supportive when it comes to Nintendo, as the developer supported Nintendo’s Wii U when other third party developer withdraw its support for the console. So it comes it as no surprise that Ubisoft is praising the Nintendo Switch.

According to Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, Nintendo Switch could redefine gaming with its unique design and capabilities.

Nintendo Switch will be available in March 2017, however, no specific date or price has been announced by Nintendo, but we should hear something in the coming months.
