Nintendo today unveiled its next console, the Nintendo Switch. It combines a home console experience on a TV with a dock-able tablet and clip on controllers to take on the road.

In the living room the Nintendo Switch sits in the dock to be played on a TV. Removing it from the dock transitions to handheld mode to continue playing.

In the reveal trailer we could see the official hardware for the first time, that had been rumoured to combine the portable and console markets. Certainly, this is a savvy move from Nintendo as children flock from big screen entertainment to tablets and smartphones. It also chimes with their move into smartphone gaming with Super Mario Rush coming to iOS soon.

Along with the dock technology, the detachable Joy-Con controllers are another innovation. These function as a standard controller when joined together, or clip to the side of the table in slightly unwieldy fashion. More interesting is the ability to offer families two players gaming on the go.
