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.
