Details of the Nintendo Switch will be revealed during an upcoming livestream on January 12, 2017.

Company president Tatsumi Kimishima said in financial briefing that Nintendo will announce the Switch’s release date and price, and highlight some of the games currently under development.

The event itself will be invite-only, restricted to selected press, analysts and partners, but gamers around the world will be able to watch it via a livestream.

Nintendo will follow-up the presentation by hosting events around the world where press, partners and consumers get a chance to play the Switch and test out its features.

The company has said there is more to Switch than shown in its reveal trailer, with recent patents suggesting an AR-capable machine.

We’ll have a better idea of what the system really has to offer come January 12. An exact start time has yet to be confirmed.

Animal Crossing Switch

No more rumors — Animal Crossing is coming to the Switch.

After gutting disappointments at E3 2018 and subsequent Nintendo Directs, Nintendo has finally confirmed that Animal Crossing Switch is gearing up for a 2019 launch.

Details are pretty scant — all we got is “Animal Crossing” for a title — but we can expect Tom Nook to return and, hopefully, at least a visit from all, if not most, of the other characters when you use their Amiibo figure.

Watch the announcement trailer, and let us know what you hope to see in Animal Crossing Switch…

Nintendo Switch Revealed! It Will be a Hit [Video]

Published

on

Nintendo has finally revealed its news video game hardware, and it is called Nintendo Switch. It releases in March 2017.

Switch is a fitting name for the project that has for the longest time been known as the Nintendo NX, but is it as cool as the “Duo” moniker that was rumored?

Nintendo seems to have learned something from its struggles with the Wii U, with the Switch marking a significant shift in its stance. The company has always been about reinvention, and this is them trying their luck once again after the dual-screen gameplay that made the DS a hit failed to translate to home machines by way of the Wii U.

Watch the announcement trailer and let us know what you think …

Confirming the slew of rumors that preceeded the system’s announcement, the Switch combines the handheld and home console businesses of Nintendo and can be used at home on a TV as a traditional home console or as a mobile gaming device that can be taken away and played anywhere like the 3DS.

This fusion is an interesting, albeit smart business move, that brings Nintendo’s first party development houses under one piece of hardware. That’s to say the company’s myriad of teams only have to create one game for a single platform that serve both purposes, saving time and money.

We can now see why the boss of Ubisoft was so giddy about it

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the first major Nintendo Switch game, and a new Mario and Pokemon are expected to arrive within the first few months of its launch in March 2017.

The next Sonic the Hedgehog will also release on the Switch and will be joined by such titles as Dragon Quest, Skyrim, Mario Kart, NBA 2K and Splatoon.

Judging by everyone’s reaction, the Nintendo Switch is a portable gamer’s dream come true. Are you excited for it? Will you be getting it? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
