Multiple ways to play
The signature feature of the Switch is its innovative design, which allows you to play in three modes. You can use the included Dock to play on your TV at home, then pick up the Switch and continue your game while out and about in Handheld mode. Or you can use Tabletop mode to split the two included Joy-Con controllers and play with friends.
Ready to share
Right out of the box, Nintendo Switch is instantly ready for multiplayer games. Pass on a single Joy-Con for two-player fun, or invite friends to bring their own for a gaming party.
Packed with features
Don’t be fooled by the Switch’s compact size – it’s crammed with innovative technology to enhance your gaming. Feel the action with the physical feedback of HD Rumble, or open up new experiences like Nintendo Labo and Ring Fit Adventure with the built-in IR Motion Camera.
Games for everyone
Who says that games are for kids? From Animal Crossing to Zelda and plenty in between, there are games to entertain everyone. Solve puzzles and give your grey matter a workout with Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training, or challenge friends to a dance-off with Just Dance. Buy and download games from the comfort of home on Nintendo eShop. And with Nintendo Switch Online (paid subscription required) you can connect and play with friends.
