The Nintendo Switch (Japanese: ニンテンドースイッチ Hepburn: Nintendō Suitchi?) is an upcoming video game console developed by Nintendo, and the company's seventh major home console. Originally known in development as the NX, it was officially unveiled in October 2016 and is scheduled for release worldwide on March 3, 2017. The Switch is a "hybrid" console - its main unit is shaped like a tablet computer which can be used portably as-is, or it can be connected to a television display through a detachable docking station. In addition it can also be used in a tabletop form with its kickstand. Despite these characteristics, Nintendo markets the Switch primarily as a home console rather than as a portable. Its most distinguishable features are the "Joy-Con" controllers. These are two detachable controllers that can be either attached to a "Grip" to provide a traditional home console gamepad form, attached on either side of the main unit for handheld play, or can be used individually in the hand like Nintendo's Wii Remote. The Joy-Cons are similarly motion-sensitive, and feature NFC for reading Amiibo data. The Switch uses flash ROM cartridges for media, rather than optical discs.
