Nintendo Offers Official Image Of The Switch Home Menu

by Kyle Hilliard on Jan 27, 2017 at 08:28 AM

Nintendo's UK site recently posted a detailed spec breakdown of the Switch, and within it is an official image of the Switch's home menu.

The menu appeared briefly, possibly accidentally, during one of Nintendo's Treehouse live streams that was airing during the Switch reveal event, but this offers a much better look. The text for the image reads, "From the HOME Menu, you can start games and select game settings. In addition to managing friends and user accounts, you can also change your system settings here." The blue icon at the bottom is where you will go to manage your screenshots, which are taken using the lower button on the left Joy-Con.

The site offers additional details and specifications, which you can see here. It's not new information, but it's a good round-up. The Switch launches March 3 for $299. for our impressions of the console, head here.

Our Take
It looks nice and clean, and simple. I hope managing and sharing screenshots is easier on Switch than it is on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. I also hope you can customize the game icons, which is something you can do on both 3DS and Wii U, so I am optimistic.
