System comes with detachable Joy-Con controllers & Switch Dock to connect to TV

Nintendo and NVIDIA posted more details on Switch, the hybrid home/handheld system previously codenamed "NX." The Nintendo Switch offers a custom NVIDIA Tegra processor with an NVIDIA GPU, a high-definition display, detachable Joy-Con controllers, and a Nintendo Switch Dock for connecting the system to a television.

A player can choose to hold a Joy-Con controller in each hand, use two controllers when they are attached directly to the main Switch device, split the two controllers with a second player, or attach the controllers to a Joy-Con Grip accessory. The player can also use an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller instead of the Joy-Con controllers. In addition, groups can "bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition."

Nintendo also announced 48 publishers, developers and middleware partners who are supporting the system:
