Although it may not offer a superior digital quality like the Xbox One X, it revolutionized the world of gaming forever with its various playing modes. The Nintendo Switch came in three playing modes, docked mode, tabletop mode and handheld mode. In the docked mode, the Nintendo Switch unit is inserted in the Nintendo dock which will allows the player to play the games on TV like other consoles.

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch is on a bit of a back foot when it comes to popular games.

Nintendo did not chase after the big companies but made their original games like Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8, Mario Tennis Aces and Sonic Mania in HD quality which became exclusively available on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo Switch also built its games’ collection with indie games. It collaborated with various indie game developing companies to release indie games from various genres for Nintendo Switch.
