One of the biggest selling points of the Nintendo Switch is that you can use it as a traditional home gaming console, and enjoy playing from your couch, or take your games out with you. As seen in the reveal trailer, and stated in Nintendo’s official press release, if you leave the Switch in the official Dock, you’ll enjoy your game on your big television set. Once you lift it up from the Dock, the Switch instantly transitions into portable mode, and you’ll be able to bring your game out with you on a smaller, but pretty sharp-looking screen too.

As stated in the press release:

‘The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.’

It wasn’t mentioned in the press release or shown in the trailer, but it’s likely that the handheld Switch will come with a portable charger that you can use to charge your device when you’re away from the Dock for a long period of time.
