Nintendo Nx now Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has just officially announced its new gaming system.  Originally thought of to be "Nintendo NX," the company has officially announced it as the "Nintendo Switch." The console is extremely unusual in design. The controllers are small and almost look like remote controls that come with air conditioners. This system is not expected to be as powerful as the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, but has something the aforementioned do not have.  The Nintendo Switch has a tablet that can be removed.

Users can continue playing their games on the portable tablet.  In other words, one can take the console anywhere and not have to be at home stuck to a television and hooked up console. This feature is being celebrated by gamers, especially hardcore fans of Nintendo.  Nintendo has suffered some losses due to poor sales of its current system, the Wii U. This console is more family oriented and may not have gotten the attention of today's youth who crave violence and action. The system saw an increase of sales after the release of Mario Kart 8, but sales were not enough to compete against Sony and Microsoft as well as cell phone app games.

With the Nintendo Switch, there may be a big increase of Nintendo gamers who will find the portability of the new console as "cool."  Games are already being announced, including a new Mario game where he is featured in New York City, a revamped Mario Kart 8 and a whole host of other games.
