It’s amazing how much information can be revealed in a trailer only three minutes long. Nintendo managed to introduce its all-new console, the Switch, in a concise, compelling video package that actually included six different pieces of hardware – the screen-equipped Switch itself, the TV-connecting Dock, the Pro Controller, the left and right detachable Joy-Cons and the Grip that can house them both – and yet everything felt neatly explained.
. . . well, maybe not everything. Because though we did learn a lot about the Switch through its first commercial, we’ve been left with plenty of unanswered questions in its wake. Let’s turn our attention now to several of the biggest mysteries still surrounding the machine, and hope that solid answers arrive long before the system goes on sale next March.
