After the official announcement of the Nintendo Switch console, which will be coming out (if goes as planned) in March, next year, we have much more questions than answers. At the moment we do not know if the dockable console will or won’t have a touchscreen, we don’t know anything detailed in terms of specification and we don’t have enough information on the range and types of games which will be coming out to the Switch, formerly known as NX.
Bethesda didn’t give any specific info about the Elder Scolls V: Skyrim (Remastered) game which is being developed at Bethesda Gameworks, we only know that they collaborated on the debut of the Nintendo Switch, but they are yet to confirm the release of Skyrim Remastered to the Nintendo Switch. The very same applies to NBA 2K17.
According to the official Wikipedia page of the Nintendo Switch we know that the handheld console will feature a Tegra-based Nvidia mobile GPU and the fact that the games which will be coming out on the console will be cartige-based, which means that the games will arrive on a physical game card which will probably function like a modern day SD/micro-SD card. We have seen the Nvidia Shield with its powerful hardware running mobile games flawlessly, so this new console should have no problems running newer high-end mobile games and some older PC titles.
It would be nice seeing the Switch running android games and apps, but Nintendo will just probably use a Linux-based operating system for the device.
The dockable console most likely will charge when it’s docked, but it is also likely that it will feature more horsepower when its connected to a dock and putting out media to external devices (TVs and monitors). A touchscreen is expected from Nintendo, but many sources say that its inclusion is unlikely and the official video we have seen does not advertise the device as having one.
