After what seems like an eternity of waiting, Nintendo finally pulled back the curtain on its upcoming console, known formerly as the NX. Speculation was rampant leading up to the unveiling, and many credible sources had reported that the new platform would be a hybrid handheld/home console.
As it turns out, the reports were accurate, and the NX will now officially be known as the Nintendo Switch. The system will primarily be a handheld unit with detachable buttons on either side of the screen, and when docked can be played on a television using a dedicated controller. The preview trailer also gave us a glimpse at some of the software that will be available for the console, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a brand new 3D Super Mario title, the remastered version of Skyrim, as well as Splatoon and Mario Kart 8, both of which seem to include some new content (King Boo could be seen racing during the Mario Kart footage).
