While the Nintendo Switch is less than five months from hitting store shelves, we actually know very little about the console, relatively speaking. We only learned it’s official name and got a look at the final hardware last week, but other details have been left hidden, including the price and what games players can expect on the new console. That ends soon though with Nintendo announcing a special presentation to be held on January 12th that is all about the Nintendo Switch price and release date.
The Nintendo Switch presentation was announced at an investor meeting earlier today, with Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima giving the date and some other info. “Major details regarding the company’s new Nintendo Switch home gaming system will be shared at the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017,” reads the press release. “This will be an event for invited media, financial analysts and trade partners in Tokyo that will be globally livestreamed on Jan. 12, U.S. time. The presentation will include the launch date and pricing for Nintendo Switch, as well as a look at the lineup of games currently in development.”
We did see some games for the system in its initial unveiling, but Nintendo later clarified that those should not be taken for real gameplay of actual titles. So far the only game that we know for sure is coming to the Nintendo Switch is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will also debut on the Wii U as well.
We currently don’t know the exact time of the Nintendo Switch Presentation, but media and public events will be scheduled in the US after it takes place.
