After a ton of rumors and what feels like years of speculation, Nintendo has finally unveiled its next video game platform: The Nintendo Switch.

As rumored, the system formerly code-named the "NX" doubles as a game console for your home as well as a handheld device that operates like a tablet. The first game shown for the system was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The trailer showed somebody playing the game on their couch, walking over to the console next to their TV, then picking up the tablet part of the console in order to play it as a handheld without a moment's hesitation.

As it turns out, Eurogamer basically nailed what the system was with their leak story back in July.

The system's controller is a multi-part device that snaps together into different formations, allowing you to use it as a more traditional controller at home (when playing in your living room on a TV) or on the sides of the tablet system when you're on-the-go.

Check out the intro trailer for the system below.

Other games shown off for the system were a new Super Mario Bros. game, Nintendo's multiplayer hit Splatoon, Mario Kart, Bethesda's open-world epic The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (presumably the upcoming remastered version of the game) and some sort of NBA game.

But those are far from the only games coming. Nintendo released an image containing "a sampling" of the developers working on Switch software, and it's a long list full of the names you would want to see: EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Capcom, From Software, Activision and more.

The system uses cartridges, which look similar in size (though a bit fatter) to the cartridges used today for Nintendo 3DS games. 

As for what's powering the system, graphics company Nvidia has come forward and confirmed that their technology is powering the Nintendo Switch.

"Nintendo Switch is powered by the performance of the custom Tegra processor," Nvidia says. "The high-efficiency scalable processor includes an NVIDIA GPU based on the same architecture as the world's top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards."

Lastly, the trailer confirms that the Nintendo Switch is still on track for release in March 2017. No price or launch software was announced.
