The official Nintendo Switch launch event has just revealed a very important spec for the new console: battery life.According to Nintendo, the Nintendo Switch battery life will range from 2.5 hours to 6.5 hours depending on the game.

Simpler games with simpler graphics and game physics will use less energy.There are other circumstances to take into consideration when discussing battery life as well, ranging from the brightness of the screen to the temperature of your surroundings.We’ll conduct a full Nintendo Switch Battery Life Test when we have our review unit, but until then, let us know in the comments if you think the announced battery life is reasonable and what you expected from the console!

Nintendo Debuts Nintendo Switch, See How Their New Gaming Console Works

[embedded content] Nintendo has announced that their next generation home gaming console, codenamed NX, is coming in March 2017 and will officially be called Nintendo Switch. You can get your first look at the console/handheld hybrid in the above video, which features Skyrim, Mario Kart, cartridges, a look at the system and controllers, a new Super Mario, Splatoon, and more. “In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose,” Nintendo says. “The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.” As you can see in the video, playing Nintendo Switch at home on a TV is done by connecting the system into the Nintendo Switch Dock. Lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock then automatically transitions the system (and its bright high-definition display) to portable mode, where “it brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.” Here’s what Nintendo says about the detachable Joy-Con controllers: Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either…
