Nintendo Switch Three Play Modes:
- TV mode: Dock your Nintendo Switch to enjoy HD gaming on your TV with a crowd.
- Tabletop mode: Flip the stand to share the screen, then share the fun with a multiplayer game.
- Handheld mode: Pick up your console and play with the Joy-Con controllers attached, anywhere you go with a new CPU for longer battery life.
Share the fun with Joy-Con:
Nintendo Switch has a controller on each side of the console that function together called the Joy-Con. If you attach the two Joy-Con to the Joy-Con grip, it will work like a traditional controller, and without the grip, they work as two individual, fully-functioning controllers. So hand one of the Joy-Con to a friend, you can play competitive or co-operative multiplayer anywhere.
