Last Friday Nintendo unveiled their upcoming console: the Nintendo Switch. You’ve likely seen the promotional video for the combination home and portable system by now, or at least seen some images of what it looks like. It’s an interesting looking system which comes with both a dock which allows you to connect the console directly to your television and a screen which the controller to that allows you to play it on the go. You can even break the controller down further into two controllers for that multiplayer action on the run. The concept sounds strange, as I write it, but the promo video does a good job at establishing its versatility.
What I think the video really establishes for us, however, is just how perfect the very concept of the console is for a company like Nintendo.
