New, 10 comments

Nintendo doesn't plan to reveal much more about its upcoming Switch console this year, but you won't have to wait too long into 2017. The company just announced a "Nintendo Switch Presentation" in Tokyo on January 13th (the 12th on US time), which will be streamed live around the world. Nintendo will use the event to announce the system's price, release date, and initial lineup of games.

Nintendo confirmed in its earnings report yesterday that it still plans to release the Switch worldwide in March, so there isn't a lot of time to get the word out. Nintendo is also planning media presentations in the US and Europe following the Tokyo presentation, and there will be hands-on events that members of the public can attend ahead of launch.
