* UsefulNotes/WiiU: [[UsefulNotes/TheEighthGenerationOfConsoleVideoGames Eighth generation]]. Nintendo's first HD console. It's noted for its controller, called the Game Pad, which incorporates a touchscreen and can stream the game onto the screen without a TV. It is backwards-compatible with Wii games, and can play NES, SNES, N64, GBA, and DS games via the Virtual Console. Coincidentally enough it was released on the eleventh anniversary of the launch of the [=GameCube=].
* UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch: Either ninth generation or the second entry in the eighth; it'll be a while before we're able to tell which. Originally codenamed the NX, it was first mentioned by that name in early 2015 by then-president Satoru Iwata. Revealed to the public at large with the new name in late 2016, it was released on March 3, 2017. Taking a cue from the Wii U, the console itself comes in the form of a touchscreen-capable tablet that can be removed from the charging dock and taken on the go, making it the world's first portable home console. The Joy-Con controllers can be slid onto either side of the console, slid into a charging grip, or simply held separately with one in each hand. The controllers have advanced motion-detection and more subtle rumble functions (which have been utilized most prominently in the launch title ''VideoGame/OneTwoSwitch'').

** The words "VideoGame/ProjectM" are tripwired on Miiverse. Even typing the phrase or an abbreviation thereof will trigger an automatic ban for discussing "[[FelonyMisdemeanor criminal activity]]" (which had the side effect of causing users to be banned for abbreviating ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' as "PM". Taken to it's logical conclusion, even just mentioning the time of the day over Miiverse can potentially get you banned).

Nintendo also created and monopolized handheld units until the Japan-only UsefulNotes/WonderSwan, and later the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable arrived in 2004 (after which it merely dominated handheld consoles). The VideoGame/GameAndWatch was the greatest handheld console in the early/mid [[TheEighties 1980s]]. Following it was the UsefulNotes/GameBoy in 1989, which was a similar success, thanks (in part) to the bundle-packaging of ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}''. Nintendo's biggest console failure was the UsefulNotes/VirtualBoy, which bombed due to headache-inspiring pseudo-3D visuals and few good games besides ''Virtual Boy VideoGame/WarioLand''. The Game Boy was succeeded by the UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor and the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance before being phased out in favor the the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS line.
