Nintendo Switch owners that would prefer to play retro games using the console screen in a portrait orientation, may be interested to know that Fangamer has created a new Nintendo Switch accessory called the Flip Grip. Allowing you to easily rotate your Nintendo Switch screen into a portrait orientation for vertical-mode gaming on the Switch. Watch the demonstration video below to learn how easily this can be achieved using the Flip Grip.
“On previous consoles, few people could make use of vertical-mode orientation features — it’s hard to turn a television sideways, after all. A few PSP games supported rotation, but playing an intense arcade shooter while you grip the top and bottom of the PSP was far from a great experience. Many Switch re-releases of classic titles, like those from Namco and SNK, include display options to rotate the game’s display 90º for games that appeared in arcade cabinets with vertical-mode screens. The Switch changes everything. Because you can remove the Joy-Cons from the system, we can finally play classics like Punch-Out!!, Galaga, and Strikers 1945-II properly in vertical mode.”
The Nintendo Switch Flip Grip is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from just $12 or £9, with worldwide shipping expected to take place during November 2018. “The Flip Grip makes portable vertical-mode gaming possible. Simply slide the Switch into the Flip Grip, then attach Joy-Cons, and voila — a handheld system capable of playing vertical-mode games without wasting a single pixel of real estate. “
