The Nintendo Switch is the 7th major computer game console created by Nintendo. Nintendo considers the Switch a "hybrid" console: it is outlined principally as a home console, with the main unit embedded onto a docking station to interface with a TV. On the other hand, it can be removed from the dock and utilized similarly to a tablet PC through its LCD touchscreen, or set in an independent tabletop mode visible to several players.
The Nintendo Switch utilizes the remote Joy-Con controllers, which incorporate standard buttons and directional analog sticks for user input, movement detecting, and high-definition tactile feedback. The Joy-Con can join to the two sides of the console to help handheld-style play, interface with a Grip accessory to give a conventional home console gamepad form, or be utilized exclusively in the hand like the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, supporting nearby multiplayer modes.
