Nintendo Switch hack: What you need to know

It's only Tuesday and it's already been a big week for Nintendo Switch owners, or at least those who would like to hack their console and open the door to homebrew software. Hacking the Switch is a pastime that's still in its infancy, but two different groups have come forward with new vulnerabilities that open the floodgates, so to speak.

Nintendo Labo launches today: Watch Bill Nye mess around with it

Nintendo Labo launches today: Watch Bill Nye mess around with it

After being revealed at the beginning of the year, Nintendo Labo has finally arrived. Labo is easily the most interesting use of the Nintendo Switch and its Joy-Con controllers we've seen thus far, as it has users building different devices out of cardboard - dubbed Toy-Cons - and then playing games with their creations. It's a very cool idea and one that might even get some kids interested in engineering, but if you're still not quite sure what Labo is, Nintendo has recruited a fairly big name to help demo it.

Nintendo’s next big multi-screen idea is infinitely flexible

Nintendo may be riding high on Switch success right now, but if its new multi-screen game system patent is anything to go by, it could have even more outlandish designs in the pipeline. The console-maker has always been eager to push the limits of device design, after all: witness not only the Switch, with its docking station for both handheld and living room use, but the tablet-like Wii U before it.

Nintendo Switch is getting a compilation of classic SNK games

While most people seem to have a lot of great things to say about the Nintendo Switch, there's still one lingering problem with the system: no Virtual Console support. Though the Virtual Console has been a major component of Nintendo systems since the original Wii, Nintendo hasn't announced any plans to create one for the Switch. Instead of waiting on official word from Nintendo one way or another, NIS America has revealed that it will bring classic SNK games to the Switch by way of a new compilation.
