Detachable controllers named Joy-Cons are the highlight of the console but there will be a wider array of control accessories and options according to Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima who said, “It may be appropriate to call them accessories, or it might be better to call them add-on hardware.”

Fans can expect popular titles like Dragon Quest XI and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim along with a Mario Kart title, an NBA game, a 3D Super Mario adventure, and potentially a Pokémon title too.
