Rewatch the Nintendo Switch presentation below
Don't Miss: MWC 2017 Highlights
With the Nintendo Switch the next big gaming system to be released (even if many people can't get the Nintendo NES yet,) there have been many rumors flying around about everything from cost to new accessories that will make playing the game easier. Still, you have to be careful about which rumors you believe and which you don't.
The increase in rumors is probably one of the reasons for the Nintendo Switch Event that will be held on January 12 at 8pm PT (11pm ET) to address things like the essential metrics of the games, performance, capabilities, and what games will launch with the system. Most importantly, Nintendo is expected to announce the price of the Nintendo Switch.
The Nintendo Switch presentation on Jan. 12 is followed up by a Treehouse Live event on Jan. 13 that takes a closer look at the Nintendo Switch games.

To properly showcase the game, Nintendo will also bring Switch units to different U.S. cities as part of a touring preview, hoping to amp up excitement about its console.
The Nintendo Switch is a completely new video game concept. It's mobile console first with removable small controllers. The mobile unit with display rest in a Nintendo Switch console connected to your TV. The mobile unit slides inside the Switch docking station, where it also gets charged.
The small controllers that are detachable from the mobile unit also slide onto a home controller. A new Zelda game will be amongst the launch titles for the new Nintendo Switch aka Nintendo NX.
The Switch will hit shelves March 17, but until then, keep up to date with the latest information in our Nintendo Switch Guide.
