The Nintendo Switch is game console developed by Nintendo and released worldwide in most regions on March 3, 2017. It is a hybrid console because the console is actually a tablet that can be docked to be used as a home console or carried around. Its wireless Joy-Con controllers can be attached to either side of the console to support handheld play. They have standard buttons and directional analogue sticks for user input, motion sensing, and tactile feedback. They can also function as a traditional home console gamepad when connected to a grip accessory, or they can be held in the hand like the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to support local multiplayer modes.
The software of the Nintendo Switch supports both local wireless ad hoc connectivity with other consoles and online gaming via the Internet. There is no region lockout on the Nintendo Switch; games and software are distributed both physically on flash-based ROM cartridges and digitally via the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo Switch Lite, a handheld-focused update of the device, was made available on September 20, 2019. On October 8, 2021, a higher-end revision of the original system with an OLED screen was unveiled.
