Finally, Nintendo unveils the latest handheld home gaming system. The mobility of the NX console will allow users to play whenever and wherever they want. When is the Nintendo Switch release date?
More so, how much is the console and is it worth your money? Read on to find out.
Nintendo Switch release date
Nintendo confirms on January 13 that the arrival of the Switch happens in about two months. On March 17, UK retailer GameSeek claimed that the new Nintendo baby is coming. However, it is important to note that GameSeek often uses temporary dates.
The Switch will not compete with PS4 and Xbox One. It is more of an improvement on Wii U, sources noted. Per iDigitalTimes, Nintendo Switch thrives with a 720p multi-touch screen. But, it can support 1080p on the dock. Interestingly, at least one of its Joy-Con controllers has a remarkable motion sensor.

Meanwhile, there is quite a bad side about the tech toy. Well, the battery might not last that long. Basing on smartphones and the NVIDIA, the Switch may offer a four to five-hour battery life.
For what its sake, Nintendo consoles have actually hit the market on Sundays. Therefore, there is also a decent chance for the NX to arrive at retail stores worldwide on March 19.
