    -- NINTENDO SWITCH™ --

    *Switch click*

    *music starts*


    - Bowser Jr: Haha, Yeah!


    - Narrator: It's good to play games.

    But parents sometimes wonder -

    Is my child playing too much?

    And what kind of games is my child playing?

    That's why Nintendo created an app to help monitor your child's gameplay.


    -- NINTENDO SWITCH™ Parental Controls --


    -- Time Limits --


    - Narrator: Games are supposed to be fun.

    But sometimes, they can be a source of friction.

    Nintendo Switch™ Parental Controls to the rescue!

    Just set an amount of play time, and the system will let your child know when time is up.

    Even when they're busy leading the pack, and dodging banana peels!

    Just keep in mind your parental control settings apply to the system, not individual players.


    Uh oh! Looks like the message didn't quite get through.

    But the parent can see that he's not following the rules.


    - Bowser: Ah!


    - Narrator: There is a function to have the system go into sleep mode when it hits the time limit,

    but - it's kind of a last resort...


    - Bowser Jr: Oh!

    Huh? Oh. Ahhh.


    - Narrator: You can also set play time limits for each day of the week.

    So there can be more time on the weekends, for example.

    Maybe there can be a little something extra for good behavior..

    or maybe not.


    -- See Their Favorite Games --


    - Narrator: You'll get a report showing how much time your child spent playing which games.

    So there's no need to peek over any shoulders.

    Knowing what kind of games your child likes to play can make it easier for you to talk to them.


    -- Restricting Features --


    - Narrator: Of course, you'll still have access to standard parental controls.

    You can set restrictions based on a game's age rating.

    As well as online communication, and social media posting.

    Until your child is more prepared for online play.


    - Bowser Jr: Oh!


    - Bowser: Ahh!


    -Bowser Jr: Ooh.


    - Narrator: Once you've estabilished the rules of the road, you and your child can enjoy gaming together!

    Nintendo Switch™ Parental Controls.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    sadly you can't "snap" a joycon with another joycon without the "adapter"


    ANYWAY, I AM SO EXCITED FOR 3D FORCE FEEDBACK, I HOPE WE GET A HOMEBREW TO USE THE BEST OF IT, I WANNA FEEL HOW MANY ICE CUBES ARE INSIDE THE JOYCON USING MY PEE PEE
    and some intense 3d force feedbak bundled with with 3d vr porn
    ho wait... no vr in the switch...


    SWITCH 3DS, IT'S THE SECOND REVISION OF THE SWITCH CONSOLE, IT HAS A VIRTUAL BOY ENCLOSURE TO USE YOUR SWITCH (like google cardboard)
    SO YOU CAN USE IT WHEN NOT PARENTAL CONTROLLING

    Hopefully that patent means we will get a headset in the future.

    They may be patenting this specific device for use with the switch, that way 3rd party companies can't just make their own.
