Infodump (comprensheive as possible):
* Coming March 2017 and is packaged with both Joy-Con controllers
* Hybrid console and not a successor to the Wii U (both home and handheld, seamless switching between both)
* Nvidia powered GPU (Tegra GPU, efficiently scaling high-level graphics card GPU, integrated with the OS for better performance and efficiency, custom advanced tools/libraries/physics engine for developers, go read the source if you want more info)
* Large third party support (From Software, Bethesda, Platinum Games, Epic Games, Starbreeze, 505 Games, EA, Take-Two Interactive, among others besides general fare like Capcom, Sega, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Atlus, TellTale Games, and Warner Bros)
* Known speculated titles are: Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Sonic, Just Dance 2017, Monster Hunter, Dragon Quest XI, Skyrim, New Mario title, Mario Kart, Splatoon, and NBA2k? Question mark because more titles maaaaybe will get announced in the coming days. Speculated because some of these are seen in the trailer but we haven't received official word yet if there is official release for 'game x' other than conjecture from devs online.
* Game Cards (cartridges) as game-media, no backwards compatibility with the Wii U or 3DS
* Has a dock for home use and the tablet is the main console, dock charges the console's battery
* Amiibo support
* Controls are detachable and slide off from the tablet and can be merged to form a more traditional controller (stick and buttons on both sides)
* Split-screen across up to four Switch consoles
* Has a pro controller
* Main console has kickstands
