First look at the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo just announced the long teased ‘NX’ is now officially known as the Nintendo Switch.

As has been long-rumoured, it features both TV and off-TV play with interchangeable controllers. The portable screen slots sleekly into the main console, to be removed when you go remote.

The games shown in the trailer include a new Splatoon, what looks like a new 3D Mario game, Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Skyrim.

The three control schemes shown were a conventional-looking controller when playing on TV, PSP-style with the screen in the middle when portable, and four-way mini-controller gameplay for portable multiplayer.

The console itself is a dark grey, a notable deviation from the white Wii branding.
