Nintendo will sponsor a special five-hour event for its new Switch console and handheld hybrid in New York on January 13.
More details for Nintendo's special hands-on Switch demonstration have surfaced, with the Japanese console-maker planning on holding an extensive event in New York starting on January 13.
In fact, Nintendo is holding two major events for its new Switch debut: a special "Tokyo webcast" on January 12--which will explain everything about the Switch including official launch details, pricing, games lineup, specs and more--and a the"Nintendo Switch experience Meeting 2017" in both New York and Tokyo the following day on January 13.
Nintendo will also hold a hands-on demo event in Tokyo's Big Sight exhibition center from Saturday, January 14 through Sunday, January 15 Japan Standard Time.
"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 revealed about the Tokyo webcast.
Sadly we don't exactly know where the New York demo will be held, but Nintendo affirms the event will "further emphasize some of the details that Nintendo plans to announce."
