The Nintendo Switch will be available for purchase from March 2017 and we can’t wait! Nvidia confirmed today during a press release that the switch will feature a custom Tegra processor, with similar capabilities to the X1 or Parker chip, putting it in league with the Xbox One, overtaking the Wii U.
Nintendo announced a list of third party developer partners that will be working on games that will be compatible by the release date. These include Bethesda, Activision, Square Enix, Sega, From Software and Ubisoft, to name a few. The company showed off their new device with ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ during its trailer, silencing all speculations on the consoles capabilities.
It was confirmed during the trailer that cartridges will be making a comeback, making the console less reliable on file installation to internal storage. The internal storage size is yet to be seen as it is set to be the domain of digital content and DLC.
The dock will feature two USB ports on the side, this could be used for external storage or for charging the Switch Pro Controller.
Unfortunately not much more was available on the Switch’s hardware or features. We look forward to finding out more closer to the release date.
