    Change the way you play with different play modes

    Nintendo Switch can be played while connected to the TV as a home console, but actually there are three different play modes you can choose from, depending on the situation.

    TV mode

    Place the Nintendo Switch console into the Nintendo Switch dock, hook up the HDMI cable to your TV, and you’re ready to play games on the TV.

    Tabletop mode

    Prop up the stand attached to the back of the Nintendo Switch console to play games on its built-in screen. This mode is useful when you’re on the go without a TV, and two people can even play together by taking control of a Joy-Con each.

    Handheld mode

    Attach the Joy-Con to the Nintendo Switch console and play it on the go. Play wherever you like, however you want, using the 6.2 inch screen.

    HOME Menu

    From the HOME Menu, you can start games and select game settings. In addition to managing friends and user accounts, you can also change your system settings here.
