Nintendo Switch video shows the many things the console can do, somehow avoids mentioning any specs

Nintendo seems to be having better luck with explaining what the Switch can do than it ever did during the reveal of the poor old Wii U.

The Nintendo Switch is out pretty soon, and Nintendo is ramping up its marketing efforts to make sure the public clearly understands what the Switch is capable of.

The latest video is very comprehensive, and outside of showing what the console allows for in its different configuration, it also gives a brief look at the connectors, the dock, the JoyCon controllers, and even shows how everything fits together.

Interestingly, there’s a clear emphasis here on the Switch being a home console, which lines up with the way Nintendo has been pitching it so far. Typically, these sort of videos for other consoles usually at least touch on hardware specs, even in a more generalised way, but this one surprisingly doesn’t do that at all.

Overall, you definitely get a good idea of what you’re going to get out of the console, in an easy to understand and concise manner.

Nintendo Switch launches March 3 worldwide.
