HI-TECH NEWS with #Nintendo Switch hashtag

With three kids and constant travel for work, John Hussey jumped at the chance to play an open-world adventure game like "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" anywhere, anytime.

After he heard about the Nintendo Switch, a hybrid game machine that works as both a console at home and a tablet on the go, Hussey ordered one in January even though it wouldn't arrive until Friday, whenNintendo's latest game machine debuts.

The Nintendo Switch has finally been revealed. The three-minute trailer, above, gives us our first official look at the long-awaited console.

As rumored, the new console is a console-portable hybrid that will use cartridges rather than discs. In the trailer, a man lifts the core of the console from a home base station, attaches to controller accessories, and plays Zelda on the go. In a later sequence, the two controllers disconnect, and players play a multiplayer on the standalone screen. In another scene, four players play Mario Kart by sharing two controllers. A traditional wireless controller also works with the devices both in its console and portable forms.
