Nintendo Switch launch date and price to be revealed on January 12th at 8pm PT/11pm ET

Nintendo will be livestreaming a presentation on its upcoming Switch console on January 12th 2017 in the US.

The livestream will begin at 8pm PT/11pm ET.

Viewers in the UK can watch it at 4am on January 13th. The presentation itself will be made in Japan, where it will be 1pm local time on January 13th.

Nintendo is expected to reveal a large amount of info on the console at the presentation, including the release date, price, and launch line-up.

Ready for the Switch

The company has kept quiet on the Switch since announcing it on October 20th, instead focusing its attention on mobile title Super Mario Run.

Developers are already gearing up to launch titles for the Switch. THQ Nordic has acquired three old IPs ahead of the console launch, and Ubisoft is currently designing its Switch games based on mobile session lengths.

Those interested in watching the presentation can view it on Nintendo's website on January 12th/13th.
