2017's most anticipated games release is this console. Or is it a portable? The Nintendo Switch can't make up its mind – in the best possible way.

The 6.2-inch touchscreen will let you play HD games in your TV. Attach the Joy-Con controllers and you can take it with you and carry on playing. Supporting local and online multiplayer, you can link up to eight machines and play with anyone around the world.

Now instead of giving up on a game because you ran out of time to play, you just carry on where you left off. There's six hours of play per charge, and launch titles include LEGO City Undercover plus the latest Zelda title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so hotly-awaited it's the gamers' equivalent of a new Star Wars movie.

On pre-release excitement alone Switch has already proved a game changer.

Out March 3, £280, nintendo.co.uk
