Last month, Nintendo finally unveiled their new concept console, Nintendo Switch, to the whole world in a three minute trailer. Soon after the video aired, Nintendo also announced that they will be revealing more information regarding the console on the 13th January 2017. Today, Nintendo have announced further details around this event.
A presentation will air direct from Tokyo at 12 Noon JST. If you are in the UK, you may be annoyed to learn that this translates to 3am GMT, though I’m sure it will be worth waking up early for (or not even sleeping). If you’d rather not wake up at that ungodly hour, then we will do our best to have a chunky blowout article ready for you with your morning orange juice (not included). Elsewhere in the world, the event will be airing at 7pm PST, 9pm CST, and 10pm EST on the 12th January 2017.
Nintendo have also announced that the event will be specifically talking about the exact launch date, along with the launch line-up of games currently in development. So expect to see some pretty big announcements then.
Throughout the day, I will create a new page specifically for the event. This will have an embed of the live stream, along with the forum shoutbox, similar to the setup we had for E3 this year. This way, you will be able to interact with different fans during the stream.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
Outside of the battery life while in tablet mode I'm not that interested in the console itself anymore, they've sold me on it already. Now I just want to see what games are comming out for the Switch and how they will utilize the joy con controllers. Nintendo has a track record (and rightly so) of forcing the developers of launch games to use their console's gimmick in a 'unique' way; so I want to see what those ways are this time.
