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.
