Set your alarm clocks for the 12th of January 2017, because that’s when Nintendo will be revealing more details of the Nintendo Switch. Announced via the official Nintendo of America Twitter account, you can tune in for the live presentation 8pm PST (11pm EST), on Nintendo’s site.

Expected in March of 2017, we’ve heard a lot about the Nintendo Switch since the reveal in October. Nintendo’s newest console is a portable console that slots into a dock, allowing you to transfer your gaming from the 6.2″ screen, to the TV in your lounge. Remove it from the dock, and you can keep gaming on the same console – albeit, with some rumored performance downgrades. The Switch has caused consternation amongst gamers, with some crying that Nintendo has finally lost it, while others are eager to start taking part in Switch-based rooftop parties.

Regardless of how you feel about the Switch, what we’re expecting from Nintendo in this presentation is solidification of fact and the answering of a lot of important questions. Details on the device (is it a touchscreen?), how the console functions with the dock, and – crucially – the all-important launch titles are all expected to be revealed at the presentation. It’s undeniable that this is crunch time for Nintendo, and making sure that the presentation goes smoothly and convinces millions to part with their cash will be their number one priority. We’ll be watching come January 12th, and you’ll be able to catch the latest news on the Nintendo Switch right here.
