We got our first look at Nintendo’s Switch last week, but most facets of the hybrid console/handheld, which is scheduled to launch in March 2017, are still shrouded in a thick fog of mysteriousness. At the time, the consolemaker said we’d have to wait until Early 2017 to learn more details about the launch lineup and system specs, but late last night they put an exact date on the Switch’s full unveiling… so mark your calendars.
On January 12, Nintendo will host the “Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017,” a livestream dedicated to revealing “the launch date and pricing for Nintendo Switch, as well as a look at the lineup of games currently in development.” The exact time of the livestream will be announced soon.
Nintendo also confirmed that a series of public demos for the Switch will take place sometime between January 12 and its March launch in the US and Europe. We don’t know where or when these demo events will take place yet, but more details will be announced at a later date.
It’s happening, people! This is not a drill!
