The list of 48 developers and publishers is a huge improvement compared to the list of 21 companies that supported the Wii U when it was first announced. Some of the bigger additions include Bethesda and Platinum games.

Nintendo announced the new system with a three-minute reveal trailer today. When used at home, the console can be plugged into a television set to be played, but when lifted from the dock, it becomes a portable console. Nintendo also revealed new Joy Con controllers that can be used for portable play that allows for multiplayer gameplay.

Nintendo did not reveal how much the Switch would cost and there's no specific release date at this time. More information is expected to be released before its March 2017 release.
