Nintendo Switch has established itself within the video game world as a absolutely unique console. The famous Japanese company has managed to differentiate itself from the competition, as usual, with a different proposal that stands out for offering a large number of options and benefits for all types of public, combining the power of a desktop console in a machine designed to be used both outside and inside the home.
