Gamers, hold onto your heads because they just might explode after you watch this new video introducing Nintendo's new gaming system, Nintendo Switch.

The platform is a flexible system that allows you take your game seamlessly from console-style play on a large screen in your living room, to practically anywhere, on the go, via a modular controller, dubbed the "Joy-Con," that splits apart and connects to a handheld mobile device.

The system allows for easy, and new multiplayer modes too. The Joy-Con can be separated into smaller controllers for two-player play. Switch also allows gamers to play the same title anywhere and at any time, and multiple players can also connect their systems to engage in face-to-face competition.

The intro video illustrates the Switch's slick interchangeability, showing vignettes of players moving easily from home to court, to rooftop to train --- culminating in a grand finale depicting an army of gamers on connected devices in a tournament face-off.

"Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like," said Reggie Fils-Aime, president and COO, Nintendo of America in a statement. "It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries."
