The Nintendo Switch is Nintendo's first real attempt at a hybrid console, releasing worldwide on March 3, 2017. While Nintendo had previously attempted to design a console that could be played differently both at home and on the go with the Virtual Boy, the Switch has a number of key features that make this concept actually work.

There are two main configurations for the Switch: docked and handheld. The former is mainly for TV use, having you slot the screen portion of the console into a proprietary dock to supply power and improve cooling. Handheld meanwhile allows you to play on the go, either with two mini controllers (Joy-Cons) attached, or with the just the screen section and external controllers.

The Joy-Cons each feature "HD rumble" — haptic feedback that can emulate certain sensations — and motion controls. Motion controls in particular were a way to recapture some of the success of the Wii, though the input method ended up being used more sparingly by developers.

As of 2022, the Nintendo Switch is Nintendo's best selling home console of all time, though it still lags behind their most successful handheld, the Nintendo DS.
