Disclaimer: The "Switch" in these pictures is a life-size display model I made, not a real Nintendo Switch retail unit. It's completely nonfunctional and lacks internal electronic parts of any kind. Basically please don't send your ninja-police after me, Nintendo. Thank you. With the Switch release right around the corner, I made a basic display dummy of the console in order to compare its size against current consoles and to put things in perspective a bit. The central tablet section of the Nintendo Switch is about the same size and thickness as the lower half of a New 3DS XL. It's slightly taller than the width of an original Game Boy and might fit into a large pocket if you remove the Joy-Cons. If you can fit a N3DS XL into your pocket, chances are that you can also fit the Switch tablet (not that it would be a good idea, given that the screen would be exposed to bumps and scrapes of the inside of your pocket). An original Game Boy Advance will fit snugly within the boundaries of the Switch's 6.2" screen, while the width of the entire unit with Joy-Cons attached is just below twice that of the original 3DS. Compared against some controllers, the Switch is actually not as tall as a Dual Shock 4. The width of the screen is about the same as a Wii remote (without Motion Plus attachment). The joysticks on each Joy-Con are about the same size as the control stick on a GameCube, except they protrude far less, while the buttons are quite a bit smaller than that of any of the displayed controllers. It feels quite comfortable in the hand, and anyone who owns a New 3DS XL will feel familiar handling the Switch. Oh, and the Switch measures 1.204 (±5% accuracy) on the Banana Scale of Universal Scientific Unit of Measurement of Distance.
