Switch Multiplayer: Nintendo is serious about bringing friends together

Nintendo Switch comes with the two detachable Joy-Con controllers that will let two individuals play together right out of the box. Nintendo will also sell extra pairs of Joy-Con controllers and a special Pro controller for multiplayer gaming option. We already know that users can connect up to eight Switch consoles over WiFi network. But in a recent Splatoon 2 preview, Nintendo revealed that the Switch will also support offline LAN connections.

Games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will allow eight Switch units to connect over WiFi, whereas the Splatoon 2 will let 10 docked consoles to connect through offline LAN. It looks like Nintendo is also trying to bring back the LAN party. The Switch dock doesn’t feature an Ethernet port which means you will need a $29.99 USB-to-Ethernet adapter to enjoy this feature. It is clear that Nintendo is serious about bringing friends and family together with the Switch multiplayer options.

Play Together

For Nintendo, gameplay experience is the top priority. You may have noticed how little Nintendo talked about the hardware specs in their presentation video. The whole presentation was dedicated to the upcoming titles and the gameplay experience. Nintendo showed how easy it is to share the experience with your friends and family. And how you can enjoy the same game within and out of your living room.

Nintendo Switch is a hybrid gaming device that can be transformed into a living room console, a desktop console or a handheld console in three simple steps.  Nintendo Switch with the Joy-Con controllers is initially priced at $299.99 and is launching on March 3, 2017.

Stay tuned for the updates.
