Nintendo offers a variety of hardware systems that your child might enjoy in different situations. If your child often plays games at home or you play games together as a family, they may be interested in our current home console, Wii U, whereas if they usually play games on the go or at a friend's house, they might prefer our Nintendo 3DS family systems. You can find out more about these systems in the dedicated hardware sections on our website, or by reading the hardware information in this section.

Your child may also be interested in, or own one of, our previous systems, such as Wii or Nintendo DS. You can find out more about these systems in our Support section, or by reading the hardware information in this section.
