The Nintendo Switch's design is aimed at a wide demographic of video game players through the multiple modes of use.
Nintendo opted to use more standard electronic components, such as a chipset based on Nvidia's Tegra line, to make development for the console easier for programmers and more compatible with existing game engines.
Alternatively, it can be removed from the dock and used similarly to a tablet computer through its LCD touchscreen, or placed in a standalone tabletop mode visible to several players.
The Nintendo Switch uses the wireless Joy-Con controllers, which include standard buttons and directional analog sticks for user input, motion sensing, and high-definition tactile feedback.
The Nintendo Switch competes on the console gaming market with contemporaries being Sony's Play Station 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One.
The Joy-Con can attach to both sides of the console to support handheld-style play, connect to a Grip accessory to provide a traditional home console gamepad form, or be used individually in the hand like the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, supporting local multiplayer modes.
The Nintendo Switch's software supports online gaming through standard Internet connectivity, as well as local wireless ad hoc connectivity with other Switch consoles.
The console shipped over 2.74 million units in the first month of its launch, exceeding Nintendo's initial projection of 2 million units, and within a year of release achieved over 14 million units sold worldwide, outselling total lifetime sales of the Wii U.
It is the fastest-selling console in Nintendo's history, and is the fastest-selling console of all time in Japan and the United States.
