The unique console seemed to follow in its predecessors’ footsteps, emphasizing the gaming experience and communality more than outright graphical power. Some gaming demos and the basics of gameplay were revealed, but much else was kept secret. Nintendo finally pulled the rest of the details out from under wraps, announcing a release date, final price, and the details of a Nintendo Switch subscription online-gaming service.

Their newest announcement, the Nintendo Switch, looks to continue that trend.
