Some Nintendo Switch Games Don't Support TV Mode

Author

Be a part of video game history and join Nintendo in Madison Square Park on March 3 to celebrate the launch of its revolutionary new video game system.

However, that adds a caveat to the expectation that all the system's games would work in both portable and docked modes.

Sadly we weren't able to get our hands-on an early Switch console, so you'll have to wait until the console drops on March 3 before we have our content ready.

Some game experts are waiting for the holiday season before buying the Nintendo Switch.

The game will be sold at $19.99 from the Nintendo eShop. The Switch is also region-free, so if your Nintendo Account originates in Japan, you'll have access to games like VOEZ. A FAQ discussing the game's Switch support (via NeoGAF) reveals that TV Mode is not an option.

Headscarf row dominates Le Pen's Lebanon visit
Theresa May is meeting the front-runner to be the next French president for talks at 10 Downing Street . More than 600,000 people were killed and some six million people were displaced in the conflict.

WWE Superstar and actor who is as versatile as the Nintendo Switch console itself, the performer (and Nintendo fan) Cena is the ideal person to kick off this unique tour.

You have your Switch sitting in front of the television and you're playing on the big screen and then you take it out, put it down on the table. Today, however, we learned that doesn't necessarily mean all Switch titles need adhere to this standard, courtesy of the fledgling console's very first off TV-only title. While players can play the game by themselves, Snipperclips is really designed as a multiplayer experience as published by Eurogamer. Surrounded by excited fans and curious onlookers, the event will kick off a new era in Nintendo gaming.

Tabata went on further to say that while he isn't now working on anything for the Nintendo Switch, a lot of people on his staff are very interested in the system regardless. It ships March 3 for $299. However, this figure does not count digital versions of retail games and DLC.

Turns out the Switch can really last two hours and 30 minutes on a single charge, so good on Nintendo for not sweetening that part.
