New hybrid console takes Nintendo on the go

Nintendo just took the gaming console to a whole new level unveiling its new Nintendo Switch.

It’s a mash-up of tablet, handheld, and a home console in one.

The Switch will allow you to start a game in your living room and detach the console from its dock to finish playing on the go.

Players will be able to detach two joysticks easily from the sides of the console, for use when out and about.

No word yet on battery life, or what the system’s online experience will be like.

But it looks like Nintendo is cooking up something quite unique.
