How does Nintendo Switch work?

The Nintendo Switch works both as a home and handheld console, allowing you to play the latest and the best Nintendo games on the TV or on the go. It also comes with a kickstand and a pair of detachable Joy-Con™ controllers that lets you play with a friend in tabletop mode. These three gameplay modes are explained below in more detail.

  • TV mode - By placing the main portion of the Switch in the dock, which connects to the TV, you'll be able to remove the Joy-Con controllers to play games from a distance. You'll know if the TV mode is set up properly when the Nintendo application screen is displayed on your TV. TV mode is great if you want to enjoy a full console gaming experience.
  • Handheld mode - Attach the Joy-Cons to the edges of the display to play Nintendo games in handheld mode. This game mode is best for playing single-player Nintendo games that don't require an Internet connection, as you can play wherever you like.
  • Tabletop mode - In this gameplay mode, the display is detached from the Joy-Cons and is propped up on a table or any flat surface. Tabletop mode is great for multiplayer, as users can play against one another by using one Joy-Con each.

Can Japan Nintendo switch be used in Singapore?

Definitely! Nintendo Switch purchased in Japan can be used in Singapore as it is a region-free device. This means that the gaming console allows you to play games purchased from foreign countries but with a limitation in the language unless the game is developed with multiple language options. When purchasing a game, do also take note of the regions that the game can be supported in. For instance, if the game is only supported in the US and Canada, then it will not work in Singapore.

Is Nintendo Switch a good investment?

Being super affordable and portable, the Nintendo Switch console is a worthwhile investment that is sure to accompany you for years.

Even as you get tired of playing the same games, you can anticipate the monthly release of a new Nintendo game. For someone who commutes or travels often, the Nintendo Switch can be a source of entertainment that keeps you occupied other than watching Netflix or reading a book.

As for Nintendo’s new release, it is rumoured that the company will release a replacement for the current Nintendo Switch, named the Nintendo Switch 2 or Nintendo Switch Pro. Experts have predicted that the console can possibly be launched in 2021. Time to save up for the upcoming Switch!
