Nintendo Switch Presentation

 

Yes, that time is finally here! The time to learn more about the Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo has sent out a press release to remind everyone! Nintendo’s presentation on the new console is starting later this evening, just a few hours from now. They will begin live streaming from Tokyo, Japan at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET. You can tune in at one of the following three places (the links will take you right to the presentation on each site):

Nintendo.com

YouTube – This page also has a countdown showing how much time is left until the presentation starts.

Tonight’s Nintendo Switch Presentation is not all Nintendo has in store, though.

The Nintendo Treehouse folks will have more to show off tomorrow morning (Friday Jan, 13th). They will begin streaming at 6:30 a.m. PT / 9:30 a.m. ET. Nintendo Treehouse will show more in-depth looks at new games first shown during tonight’s Nintendo Switch Presentation. You can tune in to Nintendo Treehouse tomorrow morning at either Nintendo’s YouTube or Twitch pages. The links above will work, but you’ll just have to switch to the new Treehouse video on the channel at that time.

Nintendo has already given us quick glimpses of a few games besides Zelda. They include the new Mario and Splatoon games, but what else might they show off? If they show anything we haven’t already seen, I doubt it can top the Zelda: Breath of the Wild hype train, but I’m excited to see what they have. I’d love to see Metroid Prime 4 for instance, though I’m not holding my breath since it’s not the most likely thing ever. In just a few short hours, we will find out exciting new information on the Nintendo Switch!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    Yeah metroid prime would be nice. I want to see if there will be mention of no region lock (like the DS). I am not holding my breath it will be mentioned, but will still watch to see what happens.

  • Keichi Morisato

    i can’t wait to watch this.

  • Brian OLeary

    I’m hyped. I hope the preorders go live after this and I can preorder on the GameStop website

  • Mr0303

    It would be interesting to see what will be revealed about the NS. I don’t think I’ll stay awake for it, but will definitely check out the event summary on here.

    • You could just watch the video on Nintendo’s channel anytime.

  • Mr0303

    The fact that they mentioned no region lock in the presentation is quite surprising.

  • Prepare for disappointment.
