We've been bombarded with teases of Nintendo's next-gen Switch console, but we don't know much about the launch, its games that are in development, or the pricing on the codename NX console that is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra processor.


Nintendo has now announced it will be livestreaming an event for Switch on January 12, 2017 - with Nintendo saying in its 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".

Nintendo will be providing an exact start time "in the coming weeks" for the event, but it will be hosting Switch "sampling events" for media, partners, and consumers in the US and Europe at later dates. Nintendo added: "There will be opportunities for the public to participate in other hands-on events around the same time, details of which will be announced later".
