On 20 October 2016, Nintendo Co., Ltd. released a preview video clip on YouTube about the Nintendo Switch video game console. This video game console was previously referred to as "Nintendo NX".
The name "switch" relates to its hybrid design of a standard home video game console and a handheld video game console. Its game storage media are proprietary Nintendo Switch Game cards (ROM cartridge). [Note: Nintendo Switch is NOT backward-compatible with Nintendo 3DS Game cards and Wii U optical discs.]
Despite being the "next generation", Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima commented that the new Nintendo "NX" video game console would NOT be a replacement or direct successor to the Wii U.
Full hardware and software specifications are not released as of now, however, it is mentioned by Nvidia Corporation that a Nvidia Tegra series system-on-chip is used and that a custom API known as "NVN" is for gaming peformance.
