Switch games can be played in vertical tablet mode
Developers chan choose to display the game in vertical
It might not be obviously useful right now but it looks like developers have the option to integrate a “Vertical Tablet” mode for their Nintendo Switch games. This find comes from several users who report having the possibility to play Neo Geo game “Neo Turf Masters” on his system holding it like a book (cf picture below). If you try for yourself, every Neo Geo game available on the Nintendo Switch eShop actually has this option. Even Super Bomberman R.
Ok so, what’s the use? Well, for Neo Geo games in particular there isn’t any. But imagine playing Ikaruga on the Switch. Now we’re talking. Plus, that might hint the possibility of Nintendo DS games coming on the Virtual Console, with the two screen displayed one above the other, touch screen compatible.
