Some Nintendo Switch Games Don't Support TV Mode

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.

Jim Herman fires first-round 67 at Honda Classic
He chipped 15 feet by the pin and made bogey, then left a wedge short of the 18th green and had to scramble for a par and a 66. Jordan Spieth was six shots clear at Pebble Beach, while Dustin Johnson was up by five shots at Riviera, both going on to win.

Here's your first look at gameplay and the new Warden class
Take a look at the first look of Morrowind gameplay, including a sneak peek at the new player class, the Warden. The video provides a first look at what the island of Vvardenfell looks like in the MMO.

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.
