At home the Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects to a standard television. When lifted from the dock the Nintendo Switch becomes a portable handheld device with a high-definition screen.
The hardware utilizes a custom Tegra processor from Nvidia Corp, which created custom software, including a revamped physics engine, new libraries, advanced game tools and libraries, and new gaming APIs.
Portable Joy-Con controllers can attach and detach from the Nintendo Switch. The Joy-Con Grip attaches both sides to the grip to resemble a home console controller. Each Joy-Con includes an analog stick and a four-button array.
Outside the home Joy-Con controllers can be used together for single-player games or can each be used separately for two-player local games. A Nintendo Switch Pro Controller with traditional format analog sticks and buttons will be sold separately.
