Nintendo Switch is designed to go wherever you do, transforming from home console to portable system in a snap.
Having played the Nintendo Switch, I can appreciate what it is. The device can transform into multiple configurations, and it folds together decades of Nintendo’s legacy into an all-in-one type of console.
The Nintendo Switch is the seventh major home video game console developed by Nintendo. Known in development as the NX, it was unveiled in October 2016, and was released worldwide on March 3, 2017.
Nintendo considers the Switch a "hybrid" console. It is designed primarily as a home console, with the main unit inserted onto a docking station to connect to a television. Alternatively, it can be removed from the dock and used similarly to a tablet computer through its LCD touchscreen, or placed in a standalone tabletop mode playable by several people.
The Switch's most distinguishable features are the Joy-Con wireless controllers, which include standard buttons and a directional joystick for user input, motion sensing, and high-definition tactile feedback. The Joy-Con can attach to both sides of the console to support handheld-style play, connect to a Grip accessory to provide a traditional home console gamepad form, or be used individually in the hand like the Wii Remote. The Switch supports both physical flash ROM cartridges and digital content for games and software, and does not use region locking.
My overall impression
Zelda, zelda and more Zelda, that game is just amazing!

The Nintendo Switch is a breath of (the wild* ) fresh air when it comes to hand-held consoles. The fact that it outputs in 720p whilst in hand-held mode is impressive but to then be able to upscale to 1080p when docked is incredible. During the 4 days that I rented it for, I think I only ever experienced 1 case of frame drop. Apart from that one time, it gave very smooth gameplay consistently. As for Zelda that comes with it... In short, I would happily give it a 10/10. Fantastic, satisfying and highly polished. I would strongly recommend that you rent the switch from Wonder! *Excuse the pun.

The Switch has definitely revived my interest in the Nintendo consoles. It's a shame that the Pokemon games are not yet on the Switch, but I suppose this is a matter of time.
In terms of controls, the Switch is very easy to use and intuitive. Set up is easy, and battery life for portable gaming satisfactory. A down side is that the kick stand only offers one angle, which may not be ideal depending on what position you are in when playing.
Overall, would highly recommend!
