Nintendo's trailer for the Switch showcases the console's ability to transition from console to handheld so you can play games in a variety of situations. According to a press release, Nintendo already has a slew of publishing partners for the Switch, including Electronic Arts, Capcom, Activision, Sega, Square Enix, Warner Bros, and others. It's been four years since Nintendo debuted the Wii U.

People were shook.
