Since it’s now been around a week since the Nintendo Switch was formally announced, more people are starting to get over their hype and are now instead wondering what the tech for the Switch will look like. According to Eurogamer, the Nintendo Switch screen will be more than adequate to suit the console’s needs.
According to previous sources that had confirmed the detachable controls and the Switch’s design, the Nintendo Switch screen is a 6.2-inch, 720p multiple-touch screen, a step-up from the touch screens of the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. Both of those previous platforms had had resistive touchscreens, which were reliant on pressure, single-touch, and not very precise.
The Nintendo Switch screen is basically the same sort of screen as a mobile phone, meaning that it will also support multi-finger gestures instead of just tapping on it with one finger. But obviously, considering the Switch’s detachable control things on its screen, Nintendo doesn’t intend for you to just use your fingers to play games on the screen.
The Nintendo Switch will also give players access to a Pro Controller when it’s plugged in and you want to play the console on your TV, or you can use the JoyCon controllers which would attach to the screen’s grip.
Either way, considering that there will be a Nintendo Switch event coming on January 12 of next year, we’ll likely learn a lot more not just about the Nintendo Switch screen, but also about every other feature that Nintendo’s new console will have in it.
This will come a short time before the Switch is supposed to release next March, and hopefully at the event and in the time from now until next March players can expect to see all of the games that we’ll be getting on the Switch’s release.
