In March, the Nintendo Switch will be on the market for two full years.

Michael Pachter: Nin tendo will introduce a fully wearable version of the Switch for $ 199. "I'm assuming that the device has the same screen, but with Joy Cons in the case and no docking station, and since the device can not" switch "from the handheld to the console, it's hard to guess how but we assume Game Boy (joke).
