Nintendo Switch Unboxing Photo Gallery And Size Comparisons

With the Nintendo Switch set to launch in just over a week, we decided to open our system and get a good, close look at it. In addition to looking at the Switch itself, we put the new Nintendo device and its various components next to other systems like the Vita, 3DS, and Wii U GamePad to show just how it stacks up to other consoles and handhelds you may have in your house. We did the same for our copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Switch box contains the Switch itself, the docking station, the right and left Joy-Cons with straps for each, the Joy-Con grip controller, an HDMI cable, and a power cable. Nintendo Switch launches worldwide on March 3.

Check out our photo gallery below and stay tuned for more coverage as we get closer and closer to launch.

On the next page, we look at how the Switch compares to other consoles and handhelds.
