The Nintendo Switch has established itself within the video game world as an absolutely unique console . The famous Japanese company has managed to differentiate itself from the competition, as usual, with a different proposal that stands out for offering a large number of options and advantages for all types of audiences, combining the power of a desktop console in a machine designed for be used both outside and inside the house.

Because Switch is not just a desktop console and thanks to this it has positioned itself as one of the most attractive options on the market . In case you haven’t yet got hold of a model from the Nintendo Switch family of consoles, we’re going to review its most beneficial features and its extensive catalogue.

A desktop console with the soul of a laptop

The first and most important thing that should be highlighted, and why this platform has been very successful, has been its double function as a home console and portable. The good thing about the Nintendo Switch is that the player is given several game options. Do you want to enjoy a relaxed and comfortable session in your living room in front of the TV? You can do it. Do you prefer to play lying down from bed, on the bus or during a trip? Portable mode gives you that possibility. 

But if you prefer a purely portable experience, don’t forget Nintendo Switch Lite , the fully portable version of the console that has an improved battery, a more compact size and a 720p screen that, although it does not improve the resolution, looks plus something sharper.

The best thing about portable mode is that it leaves out practically no titles . It is possible to play works that were not originally intended to be enjoyed on a laptop, such as role-playing games like The Witcher 3 or Divinity 2 Original Sin , something that undoubtedly gives it an extra charm.

In addition, month after month, leading games and great sagas are launched on Nintendo Switch to take advantage of such outstanding portability. This option is taken advantage of even more thanks to crossaving, a function that allows you to save your game and continue it wherever you are,  even if they are from games that you started on PC, like the two that we just mentioned.

The console’s catalog continues to grow, encompassing both the latest indie releases and ports of greatest hits . As if that were not enough, in its repertoire we find an immense variety of exclusive titles that you will only be able to play on Nintendo Switch, many of which have reaped really impressive sales figures and reviews. And to top it off, the catalog available on the Nintendo eShop covers all kinds of genres, prices, and formats.
