Though it was almost obvious from the get-go, according to Japanese website Famitsu the recently revealed Nintendo Switch will not play Wii U discs, nor is the platform suited for physical 3DS games. The company specifies physical game copies however, meaning it’s unclear whether digital Wii U and 3DS content will carry over.
Translated, the company went on to provide Famitsu with minor details on the Switch’s battery life, saying users can play “comfortably” as much as possible without access to a power outlet. Additionally, the Dock and both left and right Joy-Con controllers will ship in the box. No word was given on the Grip, though, which places the left and right Joy-Cons closer together to form a more traditional controller.
Nintendo declined to comment yet on whether its mobile titles will be playable on the Switch; however, it did confirm the use of the Tegra processor yesterday, which is optimized for mobile devices.
