The Nintendo Switch is set to launch sometime in March, but Nintendo has been very quiet about most anything involving the system since its reveal video back in October. Ever since that event, outside of the short appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Nintendo has simply been saying to stay tuned for the special Nintendo Switch presentation on January 12 for more information and now we may have an indication of how long this event will be.
Niconico is a video hosting service that has been used by many companies to help stream presentations over the last few years, with them also being a host of Nintendo’s various presentations they hold, including their Nintendo Direct videos. Their website shows an upcoming schedule of streams and now they have actually listed a spot for the Nintendo Switch presentation.
On Thursday, January 12 at 11:00 pm ET in the US, Nintendo will be holding a presentation to fully unveil the Nintendo Switch alongside plenty of details and games for the system. The Niconico stream schedule specifically lists the stream as starting at 13:00 JST on Friday, January 13 due to the time change, and it has it listed for an hour long block.
What is important to note though is that Niconico only lists things by the half hour, so if previous presentations are any indication, this could be an hour or anywhere right around there. There have been previous Nintendo Direct presentations listed for 30 minute blocks that lasted 45, so we’ll have to wait and see for an exact time. However, this should be a pretty good estimation of how long of a presentation we should expect, which should reveal the price, release date, system details, and games coming to the system.
As we told you the other day, there will be a Nintendo Treehouse Live the following morning that will focus on the games, so there’s a good chance the game reveals aren’t all that in-depth during the initial presentation.
