The website shows that the game can be played by a single player, even using just one Joy-Con. This requires pressing a button to switch control between the two characters. The website also includes numerous videos, showing how to turn the characters into various shapes. A few are below, but there are so many that the rest are after the break:

Switch controller range testing

Posted on 7 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 11 Comments | 0 Likes

MyGamingBoulevard put together a video to demonstrate what you can expect from Switch when it comes to controller range. Different controller options were tested for the video, which you can see below.

A few days ago, French outlet Melty reported that Switch would support Bluetooth headsets based on an interview conducted with Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi. However, it turns out that information was incorrect.

The site now has a follow-up report in which it states that Bluetooth headsets aren’t actually compatible. There was either an incorrect translation or misunderstanding. Nintendo France passed along the news to Melty.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that Switch doesn’t support headsets at all. You’ll just need to use a wired option.

Thanks to Kenshin0011 for the tip.

Update: Here’s another battery test video from GameXplain:


Original: Nintendo has previously said that Switch’s battery life will last anywhere from 2.5 – 6.5 hours. Siliconera put it to the test by playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

After it was charged to the max, 2 hours and 39 minutes in, the site saw a note in the top left of the screen about how the battery was running out and the system would soon enter sleep mode. This was when Switch had 1 percent of its battery life remaining. After another 9 minutes, the system entered sleep mode. Siliconera conducted the test iwth the default brightness setting.

As for fully charging Switch, the site says four minutes of charging time was needed before it could be turned back on. It was at 45 percent after an hour of charging, 90 percent at 2 hours and 11 minutes, and 100 percent at 3 hours and 4 minutes.
