Nintendo Set To Annihilate Your Bank Account With New Home Console

nintendo_switch_console_nx

It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like Nintendo are finally going to crawl themselves out of the hole they dug themselves with the under-performing Wii and downright failed Wii U consoles. The NX – or, as we now know it, the Nintendo Switch – is set to fuck your saving plans right off in March 2017, and yeah, it looks awesome.

What sets the Switch apart from our beloved PS4 and Xbox One consoles is that, while we’re confined to our living room couches for playtime on those (unless you want to fuck around with Remote Play, which… Just no), the Switch converts from a home console to a high-powered portable with the flick of a wrist. Its primary controller is split into two modular pieces, which connects either to a base template, or a tablet-like screen – the power source itself – so you can take your gaming on the go.

Nintendo have also set a serious focus on multiplayer gaming, teasing that “in addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.”

Details on launch titles, pricing, or any other specific intricacies are slim at this point, but it’s assumed Nintendo will hit us with one of their Direct livestreams in the near future. For now, though, let’s just drool over the Switch’s insane beauty, and waste far too much time flicking through adorable memes about it… Like this one:
