An interesting part of the Nintendo Switch Presentation out of Tokyo was the segment where the company highlighted the concept as an evolution on about 30-35 years of home console design. Of course, due to its portable nature some have wondered aloud about the quality of the build and its comparison to something like the Wii U GamePad.
We wrote after playing it in London that the device has a pleasingly premium feel, while also boasting a rather attractive screen. Now a video from GameXplain does help to put to bed any GamePad comparisons. Having previously shared some pictures of a dev unit (which has black Joy-Cons) having tried one out with Yacht Club Games, a new video has some neat images that put the Switch and a GamePad side-by-side.
There's no comparison, as expected, and there are a few snippets of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove in action, also, in the video below.
In terms of the feel of the hardware and its quality of build, the Switch (which is a full console of course) is a number of levels above the chunky Wii U controller.
