games you want, no matter how busy life may be.

Pick it up and play with the Joy-Con controllers attached.
Nintendo Switch has a controller on each side of the console that

Share the fun with Joy-Con
By handing one of the Joy-Con to a friend, you can play competitive or
co-operative multiplayer anywhere.

if you’re actually holding a glass in your hand.
Sense shape, movement and distance
The IR Motion Camera in Joy-Con (R) can detect the shape,
movement and distance of objects captured by the camera.
For example, it can recognise the shape of players’ hands,
such as when you make a rock, paper or scissors. This
feature can also open up new experiences like Nintendo Labo (sold
