Earlier this week Nintendo finally unveiled their next big video game console launch. Originally known as the Nintendo NX, the company has now labeled the console as the Nintendo Switch which after a series of rumors and supposed leaks, we now know that the Nintendo Switch will be a console handheld hybrid while also uses cartridge media.
There’s still quite a few questions left unanswered for the Nintendo Switch, but at last, we finally know just what the console looks like and that it will be capable of being taken on the go for portable gaming. With that said, Nintendo did reveal that the console will not be backwards compatible.
The news came from Famitsu, courtesy of GameSpot, that the Nintendo Switch will not be capable of playing Wii U video games or use the physical 3DS cartridges. Seeing these new Nintendo Switch cartridges up close will also tell us if the 3DS cartridges would even fit properly within the console.
Regardless, it was also revealed that the two side controllers that connect to the Nintendo Switch for portable gaming would be bundled within the system, but it’s not clear if the new Wii U Pro style controller will also be bundled with the standard console.
Nintendo does state that more information will be coming out soon such as the details regarding cartridges, battery life, and also the processing power for the Nintendo Switch.
