The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid portable home console made by Nintendo. It is Nintendo's current home console as it succeeds their ill-fated Wii U console. It is designed to played both at home when docked and on the go while undocked. It features detachable controllers called Joy-Cons which can be split into two to provide multiplayer gameplay. In addition, the Joy-Cons also feature motion sensing capabilities, similar to the Wii Remote. 


Currently, there have been no Castlevania games announced for the Nintendo Switch; however, the franchise is featured in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with Simon Belmont, Richter Belmont, Alucard and Dracula making an appearance.
