How to Play in Tabletop Mode

If you don't own a TV, you can still play by placing the console on a table or other flat surface. You can play with a friend by using one Joy-Con each.

Using the console in tabletop mode

Detach the Joy-Con controllers from the console, then open the stand on the back of the console to prop it up on a stable surface.
