Nintendo has officially announced a date and time for a live streaming of the Nintendo Switch.
Abbreviated as the NX, it was first officially revealed in October. Nintendo has provided pretty scarce information regarding the upcoming hybrid video game console.
What is known about the NX so far
The NX appears to be a tablet that has two detachable grip controllers on the side. This gives the console a traditional hand-held game feel as opposed to a tablet. It could also be attached to a TV, making it both a handheld and a home console. But despite that, Nintendo primarily markets it as home console for some reason. The NX also uses flash ROM cartridges like the 3DS.
The touchscreen display is estimated to be 720p. Meanwhile the Joy-Cons (the two detachable grip controllers on the side) would feature an infrared pointer, as well as motion controls. This is according to the leaks posted on Metro. Another rumor is that the Joy-Cons could be used as separate controllers from the touch screen display.
Upcoming Live Stream this January
More details regarding the upcoming hybrid console would be revealed, as Nintendo has officially announced a live streaming event this upcoming January 12, 8 pm PT / 11 pm ET. So those who want first hand information regarding the NX should definitely mark their calendars and ready their alarm clocks.
The official release date for the NX would be March 17 next year. So the details that would be provided at the live streaming are expected to be final. The initial game line-up for the upcoming console would most likely be included in the announcement.
