5 Ways to Use Nintendo Switch That You Have Never Thought of

Nintendo has been competing with itself since they started their journey in the gaming industry. In the last five years, Nintendo has tried to come out with a completely new type of gaming technique that is different from all competitors. Nintendo is known for bringing new and fresh gaming methods to people all over the world. Due to the constant innovation of Nintendo, they are getting more and more popular with time. Nintendo changed the gaming dynamics yet again by delivering to us Nintendo Switch, which is a mixture of a traditional home gaming experience as well as a console gaming experience. As the Nintendo Switch gives both types of user experience to us, there are multiple ways of using the Nintendo Switch.

Playing Nintendo Switch like a handheld gaming console

You can play the Nintendo Switch like you are playing a handheld gaming console. It looks traditional and like a normal PSP. There is a large screen in the middle to enjoy the game and provides some excellent visuals. In additional to that, there are also two analog sticks that makes the controller very comfortable to hold. There are a total of eight buttons on the Nintendo switch, among them are four face buttons and four shoulder buttons. There is also a directional pad for the player to navigate. This method of using a Nintendo Switch can be very useful for people who love portable gaming. The Nintendo switch provides a great gaming atmosphere for all video game lovers.

Playing Multiplayer Games Anywhere

Another way that one can use their Nintendo Switch is to play a multiplayer game. The way it works is the HD screen shows two sections on either side of the screen for two players. For the console to control the game, the pads on both sides of the Nintendo Switch can be detached to form two separate controllers for two users. In this way, Nintendo Switch can be used to play two player games using just one console. You can enjoy it while you are sitting idle in traffic with a friend, or even take it on vacation on one of the best family cruises. The Nintendo Switch is extremely accessible and entertaining, and you can find someone to play with virtually anywhere.

Playing Single Player Games in a Relaxed Position

You can also enjoy gaming in the Nintendo switch from a very relaxed and comfortable position. The Nintendo Switch has a kickstand attached at the back that you can use to put it on any flat surface so you don't have to use your hands in order to constantly hold it. The console can be detached from the sides and you can enjoy gaming while sitting comfortably. This type of gaming experience is enjoyed by many, and creates a more relaxed feel when using the console.

Playing with a TV Screen

If you like playing games on a big TV screen, Nintendo switch offers that also. Nintendo offers a docking station where you can place the Nintendo Switch device, which is the part with the HD screen. The two detachable console parts can be readjusted to a shell. This gives the console a more realistic feeling. The docking station broadcasts the graphics on the TV screen and this way a larger monitor can be used to play your favorite Nintendo Switch games.

Playing with Nintendo Pro Console

If you don't like the shell controller, you can buy the Nintendo Pro Controller which is more suited to the TV gaming environment. The shell controller can be a bit uncomfortable for many users while the pro controller looks nicer and is preferable for many gamers because of its' stylish look and easy to use buttons and other features. The pro controller looks like a conventional console.

There are many games that are best suited to play on the Nintendo switch due to its many advanced features. The Nintendo switch was originally created to make gaming more convenient and fun for the user and has proven to become one of the premier gaming consoles of this generation.
