Nintendo Switch eShop purchases will be tied to Nintendo Accounts

FIFA 18 Nintendo Switch edition

We got a first look at the Nintendo Switch OS in a video earlier yesterday and new footage has surfaced showing us the console's very first unboxing video.

The video isn't exactly riveting, but we suppose you might want to avert your eyes if you consider console setup a spoiler.

FloKo particularly requested for the original recipient of the leaked Switch to film an unboxing video of the console, which was obviously granted. These links leave Siliconera. For applications like straightforward first-party games where there is no compelling reason to store spare information, you don't have to bolster accounts by any stretch of the imagination. For instance, you could buy a game for your 3DS and you would only be able to download the game on that system going forward. The built-in battery allows the Nintendo Switch to last away from its dock for hours. The Nintendo Switch also offers a sleep mode, screen lock and Mii and Amiibo options.

Here are some screenshots from the clip, in case (as is likely) it is taken down. Wireless controllers, called Joy-Cons, can be attached to either side of the device. As I said above, all current-gen systems output at 480p over HDMI, but this option would be beneficial to GC and other Virtual Console titles. According to the video, the system features a set of Nintendo-related images which can be used as an icon.




Naturally, quotes and scores from the most glowing of those reviews are layered throughout a new trailer for the game.

Switch has a light and dark theme. As fans might remember, Nintendo advertised a 32GB internal memory storage for the console.

You can control the HDMI RGB levels, which means you can opt to get better black levels at the expense of color data.
