Earlier this month, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the attendees asked the CEO about their limitations when it comes to the Nintendo Switch system. It is to be noted that NVIDIA has partnered with Nintendo for the development of the console. Their Tegra system-on-chip (SoC), which is also used in tablets and smartphones, is reportedly powering the Nintendo Switch. According to him, the developers focused on crafting the best gaming experience for children.

"Nintendo Switch is a game console. It's very Nintendo. The whole experience is going to be very Nintendo. When you guys all see Switch, I believe people are going to be blown away, quite frankly," he continued. "It's really delightful. But it has nothing to do with AI." Huang revealed.

For the uninitiated, the gaming console offers players a chance to enjoy its features from home and from outside those walls. Gamers will be able to lug the device, while they are out and about.

Nintendo has unveiled the device but it has yet to reveal its full specifications, release date, iprice, and its launch titles. Gamers, however, can catch the livestream event that will be held today, Jan. 12, wherein Nintendo expects to fill in the missing details about its upcoming console.
