Don’t expect to hear more Nintendo Switch details this year!
Nintendo NX was revealed yesterday as Nintendo Switch. It is a unique machine and probably the most mobile gaming device we have seen to date.
We are craving for more Nintendo Switch details but that won’t happen. According to Nintendo, it won’t be sharing any more details about Switch this year. The company mentioned that Switch games, specs, nor its regions lock details are to be discussed this year.
Nintendo: no more official announcement would come this year on 1) game titles 2) spec details, including region-lock status.
That doesn’t mean we won’t hear anything related to price and a release date. They just made it clear that game titles and specifications won’t be discussed by Nintendo until next year.
What we know so far about Nintendo Switch is that it is a handheld/console hybrid.
Introducing Nintendo Switch! In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.
Nintendo Switch is powered by a custom Nvidia TEGRA chip but how powerful is that chip is yet to be revealed. We saw The Legend of Zelda running on NX, its gameplay was enhanced by hardware-accelerated video playback and custom software for audio effects and rendering, according to Nvidia.
