Nintendo Switch Hands-on Event in New York January 13

The first opportunity to hold a Nintendo Switch is soon arriving

The Nintendo Switch, previously known as the NX, was officially announced last month. It wil make its first hands-on appearance at a private event in New York on January 13, 2017. 

At this five-hour event, guests will be able to get hands-on experience with the Nintendo Switch after a streamed presentation on the evening of January 12. This stream is where details on the upcoming hardware will be revealed, as such details have been scant since its announcement. 

The price and exact release date will be revealed at the event. Whether or not it will match the rumors is unknown, but a March 2017 release window has been given.
