The Nintendo Switch is an upcoming hybrid video game console developed by Nintendo. Officially unveiled in October 2016, it is currently scheduled for release worldwide in March 2017.

The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid device; the Switch console is a tablet-like portable console, which can be inserted into a docking station connected to a television to use it as a home console. Despite this characteristic, Nintendo still markets the Switch as primarily being a home console rather than a portable. The Switch features two detachable wireless controllers, called Joy-Cons, which can be used individually or attached to a grip to provide a traditional gamepad form.

Nintendo Co., Ltd. (Japanese: 任天堂株式会社 Hepburn: Nintendō kabushikigaisha?) is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and software company headquartered in Kyoto, Japan. Nintendo is one of the world’s largest video game companies by net worth.[4] Founded on 23 September 1889,[1] by Fusajiro Yamauchi, it originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards.[5] By 1963, the company had tried several small niche businesses, such as cab services and love hotels.[6] The word Nintendo can be roughly translated from Japanese to English as “leave luck to heaven”.[7]

Abandoning previous ventures in favor of toys in the 1960s, Nintendo then developed into a video game company in the 1970s, ultimately becoming one of the most influential in the industry and Japan’s third most-valuable company with a market value of over $85 billion.[8] From 1992 until 2016, Nintendo was also the majority shareholder of Major League Baseball‘s Seattle Mariners.[9]

As of 31 March 2014, Nintendo has cumulative sales of over 670.43 million hardware units and 4.23 billion software units.[10] The company has created some of the most well known and best-selling video game franchises in the industry, such as Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid, while also owning The Pokémon Company.
