Going over the three modes
One of the most confusing things about the Switch is how it has three different “modes.” The Wii U was the same way with two specifications, one of which (tablet only, or, “off-screen play”) may not have been supported. It’s the same thing for the Switch, so it’s important to understand how it works before you drop $300 on the thing and $50 or more on a game.
This video hits all the right notes, showcasing the TV mode (traditional console play), handheld mode (attach the two Joycon like a tablet and go, much like the Wii U GamePad), and tabletop mode (propped up with a stand with the two Joycon controllers off, for multiplayer).
The roughly three and a half minute clip is worth watching, as they also go over what the Joycon remotes can actually do, and beyond. With under a month to go for the Switch, now it’s just time to wait.
