Nintendo has offered a number of major details regarding its new console, the Nintendo Switch — price, launch date, specifications, and more. But how does the system stack up against its predecessor, the Wii U?
IGN had a chance to not only try out the Switch and go hands-on with the system and Joy-Con controllers but also compare it to Nintendo’s last console. Take a look at the gallery below to see how the Switch and its controllers measure up to the Wii U, the Wii U tablet controller, and individual Wiimotes, as well as how large the Joy-Con controllers are in comparison to a Nintendo 3DS.
Nintendo’s Wii U launched back in November 2012, with two separate SKUs that cost $299 and $349 respectively. For a full look at how Switch’s price stacks up historically, take a look at our feature comparing what consoles cost at launch over the past 35 years.
